Aircraft almost collides with UFO


Pilot takes evasive action after spotting unidentified object

There are concerns for aviation safety in the skies over Denver, USA, after a plane almost collided with a mysterious object. The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating what the object could be and has warned that it could continue to pose a serious safety hazard to other aircraft in the region.
The incident occurred when a corporate jet, a Cessna Citation 525 CJ1, took evasive action to avoid hitting the strange object. He transmitted to air traffic control: “A remote controlled aircraft, or what? Something just went by the other way […] About 20 to 30 seconds ago. It was like a large remote-controlled aircraft.”
Experts believe the object could be a military or law enforcement drone, a remote controlled aircraft, or a very large bird. Any of these can have terrible consequences if it collides with an aircraft. A weather balloon was later found on the ground by police, but there is no proof as to whether this could have been the thing in the sky.
