Jet Crew Tell Of Close Encounter With UFO
A PASSENGER jet's crew have reported a close encounter with an
unidentified flying object.
They said that they noticed an "incandescent" light below their
Debonair BAe 146 as it headed over the North Sea from Sweden to
Then, they added, a long cylindrical silver-coloured object the size
of a battleship flew alongside. The British plane's shocked captain
saw what seemed to be rows of square portholes on the UFO before it
vanished at "enormous speed".
The crew told the Defence Ministry about their sighting. An RAF radar
station tracked the object, which was seen from three other planes.
