SUMMARY OF INFORMATION TO JAS THE B737 PILOT reports that he was over the Pennines, about 8 or 9 NM SE of Manchester Airport, at 4000ft, while being radar vectored by Manchester radar on 119.4. He was flying at 180-210 kt on a N heading and squaking 5734 with Mode C selected. Although it was dark, visibility was over 10 km with a fairly strong NW wind (340/30). While flying just above the tops of some rugged Cu both he and the first officer saw a lighted (see JAS notes) object fly down the RH side of the ac at a high speed from the opposite direction. He was able to track the object through the RH windscreen and side window, having it is sight for a total of about 2 seconds. There was no apparent sound or wake. The first officer instinctively 'ducked' as it went by.
B737 (1848) - 'c/s we just had something go down the RHS just above us very fast.'
Manchester - 'Well, there's nothing seen on radar. Was it er an ac?'
B737 - 'Well, it had lights, it went down the starboard side very quick.'
Manchester - 'And above you?'
B737 - 'er, just slightly above us, year.'
Manchester - 'Keep an eye out for something, er, I can't see anything at all at the moment so, er, must have,
er, been very fast or gone down very quickly after it passed you I think.'
B737 - 'OK. Well, there you go!'

Ok just watched it , very interesting , but the thing is that I believe that the UFO was hovering in one place because the plane should have been traveling very fast and to see the object clearly and can be described in that way means that the UFO was not moving at all .
Just my opinion.

Very, VERY interesting case.
I am guessing it was some kind of classified "drone" - seeing that the pilots compare the size max. to a "light aircraft". Only rational explanation i can come up with. A drone would also fit their description "somewhat" (minus the lights of course).
I am a little puzzled that (if you look at the pictures)...in those two seconds the pilot could even make out what he calls jets, in the back of the craft.

Humans have been building crafts like this since like at least the 40's, I don't know why everyone always jumps to the "alien" conclusion.

Wouldn't a Cessna have showed up on radar?

"Of course it's not aliens, we have all been building flying saucers secretly ever since Nazi Germany"
You do realise the building of "flying saucers" by humans is already a confirmation of an alien presence in the Solar System? With regarding the TR-3B Astra for instance and it's engine powered by plasma-based mercury that helps to nullify gravity. That's back-engineered technology; guess where from?
