'Mile-wide UFO' spotted by British airline pilot

One of the largest UFOs ever seen has been observed by the crew and passengers of an airliner over the Channel Islands.

An official air-miss report on the incident several weeks ago appears in Pilot magazine.

Aurigny Airlines captain Ray Bowyer, 50, flying close to Alderney first spotted the object, described as "a cigar-shaped brilliant white light".

I believe there are more things in the universe than we understand. I am also not arrogant enough to believe that in all that vast universe we are the only intelligent beings (I use the word intelligent loosely)

Much like NCG, I tend to believe there is other intelligent life in the universe. It's simply TOO huge for us to be the only ones in it. Nevertheless, I'm waiting for the day when someone takes a CLEAR picture of a UFO....not blurry, not questionable, not something where people say "well that could be a weird reflection off a plane". It just seems that everytime you see a "photo" of one, you can't really see any details.

I have to agree with WCRob there. I have never seen a photograph that was convincing. I have however, seen things in the sky I could not explain. I'm not saying that they were from outer space. I'm just saying I couldn't identify them.

I believe that I saw a UFO once, no I am not nuts. I actually got my oldest daughter up to witness what I was seeing.

If you read the other news story about this pilot he states that another UFO was further in the distance. Pilots have been saying that they see things out there that are unexplained for quite some time now. Was it not this spring or last winter where the workers in Chicago O'Hare said they saw a UFO?

Who knows what they actually are, but I believe that we are not the only life form in the universe.
