Mystery as commercial jet pilot sees 'missile or rocket' flying straight towards his aeroplane
Quote:The FBI is investigating after a Continental Airlines pilot with military training reported seeing a 'missile or rocket' flying straight at his aeroplane.

The pilot spotted the unidentified object flying towards his commuter flight on Friday night at 8.09pm shortly after take-off from Bush Intercontinental Airport in Texas.

It barely missed the passenger jet, passing just 100 feet below it. It is not known how many were people on board the regional Continental Express flight to Greenville in South Carolina.

The pilot immediately contacted officials, who brought in the Federal Aviation Administration to investigate.

'The FAA then contacted the Liberty County department dispatcher and reported their pilot reported an object flying straight at his aircraft and passed 100 feet under it,' Ken DeFoor, chief deputy for the Liberty County Sheriff’s Department, was quoted as saying in local media.

'The pilot, from what we understand, was former military,' a police spokesman said. 'He was able to get the coordinates down real quick.'

Last night the FBI met with the sheriff's department and the FAA to discuss the sighting.

'While we have no information to indicate there was a criminal act we certainly do not rule anything out and certainly would not want to speculate on what it may or may not have been,' an FBI spokeswoman said.

Police said local hobbyists do set off rockets in the area, but that a search yielded no evidence of anyone doing so.

They are still debriefing the pilot on what he saw.

'We are going to try and come up with a more definite track of this object and its path,' a spokesman said. 'We are trying to find out where it came from, where it went, and who may be responsible for it.'

What kind of retard hobbyists would launch rockets around an airport?
