A flight between Ibiza and Manchester encountered a “rugby ball” size UFO which came within feet of striking the aircraft over the skies Reading above the UK. Thomas Cook Airbus A320 nearly collided with the UFO on July 19 and 2013. The aircraft was flying at 34,000 feet and at 516 miles an hour when the incident occurred. The event happened with such speed that the aircraft was unable to take evasive action so it was quite fortunate the two did not collide. The incident was investigated by the UK Airprox Board as a near miss and you can learn more about the event HERE.
