Do UFOs pose a danger to aircraft ?

Could a UFO potentially collide with an aircraft and if so, how likely would that be to happen ?

There have been a growing number of sightings and reports by pilots describing encounters with strange objects during flights. Most of the time the UFO is reported to have kept its distance however there have been a few near misses. "It's beyond dispute that airline personnel see them and see them a lot," said pilot school head David McDonald. "However, to the best of all of our knowledge, there has never been an incident where an airplane ran into one or was attacked by one."

""[Pilots] have done evasive maneuvers to get out of the way, but that's what we're trained to do," McDonald, the new international director of the Mutual UFO Network, told The Huffington Post."

"And the government doesn't tell you the truth all the time. Part of the stuff I was doing in my last 10 years with the government was lying to the public. I gave out disinformation -- an approved tactic in the government -- because the people can't handle the truth." There's a classic line. And how exactly would we be able to even discern the truth at this point? I guess ya'll figure we can handle the lies OK.

Great Post, It doesn't seem to happen often but I agree with just about everything. The hoaxing is frustrating, as it continues to provide fodder for the skeptics.... I often wonder why most of the stuff on the site seems fairly easy to debunk. It's even more frustrating when the media does take hold, the grab onto silly easily debunked cases on not the serious ones. I still think this is changing though and will continue for the better. Truth will prevail, hopefully before it is too late.

Just like you say there is no evidence for the existence of non-terrestrial craft, others say there is no evidence for the existence of exotic black military craft. You are just substituting one mystery for another and that doesn't work. Please don't point to the F-117 Stealth Bomber; we all know what that looks like! Think about it; more importantly I would recommend looking carefully at pilot reports of major incidents. There is no way that these are attributable to black military craft.

These disks appear,then disappear,they are reported by Pilots,they are chased by Military Aircraft,but never caught as they are too fast,so I guess they must exist,they have not attacked,so they must be considered "friendly",so whats the next step ?..Try to contact,or just ignore..If they are ex-planetary do they use radio or another form of communication unknown to us ?..If they are a new type of earthly aircraft why dont the owners come clean,if not why dont Govt's admit they exist ?and where is their Base ?

Some good questions and exactly the sort we should be asking imho. Just one point to make regarding your question regarding radio communication. According to several pilot reports (military also), the issue is far more complicated than this; according to pilots and ground controllers when attempts have been made to out manoeuvre the craft they appear to anticipate the moves in advance; pilots have been quoted as saying "it's as though they could read my mind". Sorry to complicate matters

I'm speaking from first hand knowledge that military black projects are a major cause for a lot of UFO reports. I believe you missed the point of my post you replied to.
