*'Sweeps' NOTE:
...I don't know, this event goes back to 2 December 2012...No real investigation, follow up, or witness/passenger/plane spotter statements either. Seemed to have been taken as 'a non-event'/'S'

Odd that they say it was "bigger than a balloon". That's like saying it was longer than a piece of string. I'd say a balloon would be the most likely explanation.

Although the radar at Prestwick did spot an "unidentified track history" 1.3 nautical miles east of the A320's position 28 seconds earlier."


Which surely should have been relayed to the A320, no?


The object passed directly beneath the aircraft before either of the crew members had time to take avoiding action or had "really registered it"


But they both agreed that it appeared to have been blue and yellow or silver in colour with a small frontal area, but "bigger than a balloon".

The pilot asked the controller at Glasgow Airport if he was "talking to anything in the area" as he had "got quite close" to a blue and yellow aircraft, travelling in the opposite direction, which had passed just below him.


The controller stated that he was not talking to anyone else in that area and that nothing was seen on radar.

Search action was taken with no result and the A320 pilot stated his intention to file a report to Airprox, which investigates near misses.


Air traffic control said they had no trace of any other objects in the area at the time of the incident, although the radar at Prestwick did spot an "unidentified track history" 1.3 nautical miles east of the A320's position 28 seconds earlier.


Once the aircraft had landed, the pilot told the Glasgow Aerodrome Controller: "We seemed to only miss it by a couple of hundred feet, it went directly beneath us. Wherever we were when we called it in it was within about 10 seconds. Couldn't tell what direction it was going but it went right underneath us."

Bonnybridge is just 10 miles north east of Glasgow Airport - and depending on which flight path the plane was approaching it may have passed over that area

*Yeah Seth,
...We know that Bonnybridge is, at least locally, referred to as the U F O Capital of what...Scotland? Anywho...you also took flying lessons...at least 3 of them...in a Cessna as a birthday present last year.

Did you ever 'go ahead' and SOLO...take the rest of flight training/etc.?

Hmmm...maybe you were the UFO in question here...flying up underneath the 'airbus'. Well, somethings can be conjectured :lol:
