A UFO came within seconds of colliding with a passenger jet in a terrifying close call.

The rogue object came at the packed Boeing 737 plane “almost head on” as pilots prepared to land at Leeds Bradford airport.

The scare on September 1 was rated a ‘Category A’ event by the UK Airprox Board – which monitors and investigates near-miss events.

The unidentifiable object – which could have been a drone or lantern – was just 10 feet away from the flight arriving from Spain.

The Airprox report revealed: “Both pilots suddenly saw a bright light and an object which appeared to be moving toward the aircraft, almost head on, slightly up and to the left.

“The object appeared without warning and there was no time to act.”

After landing, the pilots were told that a police helicopter had seen lanterns flying in the area.

But the report added: “Neither of the pilots believed what they saw was a lantern.”

Investigators ruled that “a definite risk of collision had existed”.

The near miss came three days before a drone came three feet away from striking an Easyjet flight which had taken off from Manchester Airport.


The Airbus A320, carrying 186 passengers, was 8,000ft over Greater Manchester. The drone was flying 20 times above the legal height.

Pilots have reported fears of drones getting close to passenger jets.

There have been more than 400 incidents in the past five years.
