UFO over Glasgow

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by Filthy Fifth, May 1, 2013.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. A passenger aircraft had a narrow miss with an unidentified object over Glasgow, a report has revealed.
    The Airbus A320 was making its final approach to Glasgow Airport on 2 December when an object passed about 300ft underneath it.
    The pilot of the aircraft said the risk of collision with the object, which did not show up on radar, had been "high".

    Empty bottle of Buckie ? 'Feck off ya bass'
  2. BBC News - Airliner 'had narrow miss with UFO'

    The Airprox report included a transcript of the conversation that took place between the aircraft and the controller at 12:55:

    A320: "Glasgow Approach [A320 C/S]"
    EGPF: "[A320 C/S] pass your message"
    A320: "Er yeah we just had something pass underneath us quite close [1255:30] and nothing on TCAS have you got anything on in our area"
    EGPF: "Er negative er we've got nothing on er radar and we're n- not talking to any traffic either"
    A320: "Er not quite sure what it was but it definitely er quite large [1255:40] and it's blue and yellow"
    EGPF: "OK that's understood er do you have a an estimate for the height"
    A320: "Maybe er [1255:50] yeah we were probably about erm four hundred to five hundred feet above it so it's probably about three and a half thousand feet."

    Lot of "er-ing" going on!
  3. Any transcript has lots of "ers" and "ums". It does make them sound like chimps when you read it but when verbalised, sounds quite normal.

    The papers report that an airliner has had a narrow miss with a 'UFO' near Glasgow.

    The date and time corresponds to a seemingly unrelated report by a farmer that some of his pigs went missing when they spotted a Glaswegian eating vegetables.

  6. UFOs are hardly ever reported in Scotland; there's just no demand for UnFried Objects.

  8. Finally, proof that we are not alone.....oh wait.

    I bet the sweaty's will be thinking twice about independence and ask the English Air Force will defend them from the invading aliens.

  11. It appears, It was wee Billy's 6ft long helium filled shark shaped balloon, His dad had bought him. He was 'gutted' about it when it slipped iut of his hand and when his dad read the story he thought 'aw no'

    Please place any and all tinfoil hats gently on the floor.

  12. It was caused by a particularly bad batch of Buckfast hitting Glasgow the day before
  13. Blue and yellow. Sounds like a police helicopter , just a thought.
  14. Shit, not Glasgow. Please, let our first contact with extraterrestrial life be anywhere but Glasgow.

    Mogadishu, Abuja even. If there's a loving God out there, just do this one little thing?
