Heathrow Jet Pilot Reports That Cigar Shape UFO Nearly Hit Him

The pilot of an Airbus A320 saw what he described as a “cigar/rugby ball-like in shape, bright silver and metallic-like in construction” fly directly at him at great speed. The pilot ducked to protect himself then once he realized the collision was avoided, he asked his co-pilot if he’d seen the UFO. The event occurred in the skies around London’s Heathrow Airport.

The report of what happened in July has just been released by the UK Airprox Board, part of the Civil Aviation Authority.

Predictably, the Air authorities pretty much dismissed in their report the idea that this could be a UFO, arguing that what the pilot saw was likely a reflection from an aircraft to the west.

“Although only supposition, members opined that this may have been due to a combination of a possible reflection of the low sun off one of the aircraft to the west, and of the pilot’s head movement as he looked forward.”

How does a very detailed description (cigar shape, metallic) of a large object coming straight at the pilot can be absurdly brushed off as some reflection by people who weren’t even near the event? Who are those experts and would they ever consider UFOs to be real? Or is it something that they simply can’t and won’t consider? Of course, one thing is sure, the report wouldn’t have been released by the UK Airprox Board if its conclusion wouldn’t have been dismissive.

Many pilots over the last 50 years have revealed witnessing UFOs, often time the cigar shape variety. Of course we can’t trust any of them, “experts” sitting at their desk will find all sorts of oddball theories to explain and dismiss what happened, while always being unchallenged by the docile media.
