From BBC Latest Headlines:

After not being able to explain what actually took place back in 1991, "nineteen files covering sightings between 1986 and 1992 are being made available online." These 19 files will be joined by ~200 files that will be made available in the coming 4 years.

I'm curious as to what the files contain. Personally, and being a scientist, I only believe what I can see and explain.

Here's the link: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/7679145.stm

Dang, that was close!!

I'm sure the TCAS was going off like crazy with its RAs.

(Note: attempt at humor and tongue-in-cheekedness.)



DingDong, honey, please answer the doorbell!

If you want to see the report listed by Capt. Zarghetti for this "near miss", look for the book "Beyond Top Secret" written by Timothy Good published in 1996. It's around page 130/131.

That's the funny thing (pun intended). According to what I have read about this near miss, the pilot had to shout "look out!" when he saw a "brown thing" flying over them. Huh. I wonder what it was.

If this had happened in 2008, I'd say it was the shit hitting the fan!

I think it's disturbing that none of this is being seen from the perspective of the UFO; they come here from light years away, fully briefed and see that one thing they least expected to see ... a working Alitalia crew.

The shock was just too much.

No wonder they bolted at warp speed back to the outer nebula of somewhere in a galaxy far, far away. They probably thought they'd made some calculation or arrived in a parallel unierse.

Can anyone provide a direct link to download the document? I wouldn't mind reading the CVR of this event if it's available! All I know is a shout from the captain "look out, look out"! Unless the media have over-dramatised it!

It must've been an awesome sight though! There must be many events over the year which pilots witness something not quite right in the skies around them! It must also be quite lonely particularly if it's just you and the other pilot, the door sealed shut on a very dark night!

Interesting! Very interesting!  Smile Smile

If it was a brown flying thing, knowing Alitalia's flight paths, I think an Air France plane isn't out of the question..!

the other lights

The other lights look like stars to me. I don't really see any movement.

Is there a skyteam trend here? Thanks God for the KLM! =P
