The ATSB has commenced an investigation into a near collision with an unknown object involving a De Havilland DHC-8, VH-XFX near Perth Airport, Western Australia on 19 March 2014.
While passing 4,000 ft on descent, the crew observed an unknown object tracking directly towards the aircraft. The crew manoeuvred the aircraft to maintain separation.
As part of the investigation, the ATSB will interview the aircraft crew.
A report will be released within several months.

Yeah that's it....they maneuvered the aircraft to avoid a near collision with......a.....bird. So big they could see it approaching and maneuver but couldn't recognize if the damn thing was flapping its wings. O....k.... I hope he's never my pilot than.
Look at my little wings flapping. Do I look unidentified?edit on 14-4-2014 by Rosinitiate because: (no reason given)
The airspace below 3,500 ft AMSL was military restricted airspace and the
Australian Defence Force was not operating UAVs and was not aware of any UAV operations in
the area at the time of the incident. The ATSB was not able to confirm the details of the object or
identify any UAV operator in the area at that time.

There was another segment on a plane from China airlines which happened just last year in which it may be possible the plane had contact with a ufo, as upon landing, there was a large puncture gash in the nose cone of the plane. Birds were ruled out as the plane had been flying at about 26,000 feet, and birds do not fly that high..
