UFO in near-miss with jet plane


The pilot of an Alitalia passenger jet had a near-miss with a UFO as he came into land at Heathrow airport, newly-released Ministry of Defence files have revealed.

The captain shouted "look out" to his co-pilot after seeing the missile-shaped object shoot past them in 1991.

Lizo Mzimba reports.
