Maybe North Korea???? That's some missile for it to cross the Pacific Ocean and target specifically a plane taking off from a Texas airport.

I believe I heard of a similar case from the same airport before. It is worrisome, to say the least. Could there be people trying to take down civilian aircraft with military equipment? I would certainly explain why the reports suddenly stop.

Maybe North Korea???? They now have intercontinental surface-to-air missiles? We're doomed.

They now have intercontinental surface-to-air missiles? We're doomed. Not to worry, the United States probably has orbiting satellites with nuclear capability that can wipe out North Korea in an instant. I find it hard to believe that us Americans never took the opportunity to create and launch weaponized satellites, so I'm sure we have a handful of those up there that nobody knows about.

Maybe something left over from Waco Texas in Karsh's Davidian Compound Ruins. Or maybe North Texas is getting ballsy and flexing its political Muscle or George Dwable U Bush screwing around and clowning upon his Ranch with a Acme Hobby Rocket Kit just for the S***s and Giggles

I believe I heard of a similar case from the same airport before. What this article, and others, do not tell you is that this is the second time this has happened to a Continental flight out of Bush Intercontinental Airport in less than one year. A similar occurance happened just west of the Airport. The pilot reported close contact to his aircraft from a rocket. For some reason, the story died out after a couple of days. And now this has happened. A bit unnerving since I regularly fly out of this Airport. Source: Comment In Main Article Its bad that this is the second time in less then a year... [More]
