Pilots report near miss with UFO

Two pilots of a passenger plane have reported almost colliding with an unknown object over Scotland.

The Airbus 320 had been coming in to land at Glasgow airport when the pilots reported seeing a blue and yellow object that had already passed within 300ft of them before there was time to take evasive action. Both of the pilots agreed on their descriptions of the object which they said was larger than a balloon and appeared to have a small frontal area. Air traffic control reported no sign of anything on radar at the time of the incident.

"The pilot of an A320, inbound to Glasgow, gave a contemporaneous account of his acís encounter with an untraced object at 3500ft," said the UK Airprox Board that investigates near misses. "Investigation of the available surveillance sources was unable to trace any activity matching that described by the A320 pilot. Additionally there was no other information to indicate the presence or otherwise of activity in the area."

"A passenger plane was involved in a near miss an unidentified flying object, two pilots have reported."

It's still there? Poor bastage alright. Chief Petty Officer Molumphry, USN is the guy. We all know why his locker is called "The Goat Locker" [size=4] It seems he still has the bloody Goat!!

Yep. He's our four-legged lawnmower and general scarer of bad people. I mean who expects a goat around a barracks? ROFL! Anyway, back in the days of sail, goats were kept on board for milk. The chief petty officers were the ones who tended them and usually their quarters were with the goats ... hence the name "Goat Locker." Well, someone had to take care of him!

LOL I am just glad he ended up with a good home! I did not know that, I thought the Goat locker was just an Officers Club at Sea (all the Old Goats) Did you recognise the name Chief Petty Officer Molumphry?
