Airline pilot startled by flying shark


Still Waters

Just when you thought it was safe to re-enter Christchurch airspace this summer – shark!

The pilot of a passenger jet, thought to be an Air New Zealand flight, was on his descent to Christchurch International Airport on Boxing Day when he radioed ground control with an unlikely sighting – a shark flying at several thousand feet.

The fish out of water was identified as a remote-controlled, helium-filled shark that has topped must-have present lists this Christmas.

Spotted and identified a one meter long helium shark novelty. Pilots: reliable UFO witnesses or not?

Exactly. Reliable?, Yes. He stated exactly what he saw! I see nothing unreliable in that and I fail to see how anybody can state otherwise :)

Just an afterthought though. Isnt it a little dangerous to be flying one of those things anywhere near a flight path, or was it out of the owner's control?

Those things are basically balloons. Take them out of the house and the slightest breeze will take it way beyond RC range.

Kevinlea . Did you actually read the OP? The pilot saw a shark and reported it and it turned out to be a helium filled shark.

Why should the pilot have been drunk?

Maybe you both should read whats written before making such comments.

As for SewerRats response,,,,,,,well, the same applies except he should maybe close his legs and give his mouth a chance!

edit,,,sorry but it had to be said :)

So you were too thick to realise that my ironic nonsense was a jibe at Kevinlea's atrocious grammar and wholly illogical response then. I am also an English gent, but happily one with a sense of humour and a dash of intelligence. Tut. Go to the bottom of the class.

SewerRat. I am sorry for not seeing the humour. I think it was just seeing both posts together and I wrongly assumed you were suggesting the same thing. I apologise. I will now stand in the corner with the pointy hat on until told otherwise

As for the atrocious grammar, that didnt worry me as I would never assume that just because some people cannnot speak or write in what we would consider to be proper grammar, that their opinions do not count.

<------off to stand in the corner :unsure:

By the way. i do actually have a sense of humour but it's seldom understood :)

Apology graciously accepted (it's all tongue in cheek, isn't it). I agree that it isn't good netiquette to criticise others' grammar and I don't make a habit of it. It's just that certain howlers (he must of) seem to set me off something awful.

Now get that damned pointed hat off before some other wag here takes you for a member of the KKK and turns the whole thing into a racist shenanigans.

I always thought they were. Especially experienced ones. It saddens me how many UFO explanations rely on pilots being incompetent.

Ha, ha, ha. Funny. I bought one of these for my grand baby for Christmas at Toys R Us. I did not get her the shark though, I bought her the clown fish. Very cool and she loves it !!! I would have loved to see the faces of the tower when the pilot made this claim ! Very funny, thanks. LOL
