Near Miss! UK Airbus & UFO Near Collision - Glasgow, UK

We have written for many years about one of the real reasons for the UFO coverip by the FAA - that is the serious threat they pose to the safety of commercial aircraft.
Another story of this has come in about an Airbus almost having a near crash with a UFO over Glasgow UK:

A PASSENGER jet was just seconds from crashing into a UFO over Glasgow, an official probe has found. The Airbus came within 300ft of the blue and yellow object as it flew at 3,500ft above the city. The shocked pilot radioed the airport’s control tower saying: “We just had something pass underneath us quite close. Have you got anything on in our area?” The tower replied: “Negative. We’ve got nothing on radar.” The pilot later said there had been a “high” risk of collision as the object “loomed ahead at a range of 100m” as the Airbus A320 came in to land in sunny weather. Both him and his co-pilot described the object, seen above the city’s Ballieston area, as “bigger than a balloon” with a small frontal area. He told investigators: “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 ten seconds. We couldn’t tell what direction it was going but it went right underneath us.” Asked if he thought it was a glider, the pilot replied: “Well maybe a microlight.” But the UK Airprox Board — which investigates near misses — RULED OUT that type of aircraft and has been unable to confirm what the object was despite an extensive investigation.Read more:
