UFO HITS FLORIDA BOUND AIRLINER OUT OF DETROIT

"A Tampa International Airport spokeswoman initially blamed the dent on a bird, but Bergen said the crew reported the bang while flying at 18,000 feet -- an altitude too high for a bird"

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said Tuesday that the aircraft's fiberglass nose cone and an antenna were shipped to Minneapolis for analysis and that here is "definitely no evidence of a bird strike."Bergen said the crew aboard Flight 478 from Detroit reported a loud bang Monday and then the aircraft's radar became inoperative.

The aircraft landed safely.
"I don't know if they noticed anything was wrong until they got onto the gate and we're walking past the windows and saw the plane the commotion that was happening at the windows," a passenger said.

Not necessarily. Some vultures, hawks fly even higher than 18,000 feet.
UFOs are beginning to be reported by Air Traffic Controllers, especially when multiple pilots call them in.

Traffic is traffic, and if the traffic is not 'squawking' a transponder code, ATC likes to know about it.

Well even so, a bird of any size flying that high still could not have done that kind of damage to an airliner.

You're absolutely right and you know what else, this story was totally snuffed by the media and the airline. I never saw a follow-up.

When will the truth be exposed? Even a small airliner incident like this is covered up and ignored. All because, why? Mass hysteria? That's bull. If anything, I believe that if the world were to know that we're Not Alone in this universe, for the most part, after the initial shock of it all, we would unite as a species. Less hate among ourselves, because we'd know that in this giant universe, we're nothing but a spec, and our fellow men and women are all we got. Sorry, this stuff irritates me a little. haha.

I think just having confirmation that we were being spied on would be a humbling experience for the masses and yes, there would be great change for just that reason - even though there are certainly many more reasons.

Honestly, I don't think anyone is truly hiding anything here in this particular case. The problem anymore is who is responsible for follow-up. Their local city paper may had made a comment but at our end (Ufology), there's nobody to follow up such or make sure it gets followed up.

Based on the altitude and the size of the damage, there is still a good chance it's space junk, which is why nobody at 'our' end followed up.

Makes sense, but what about all the other incidents throughout UFO history and even more recent ones that have been dismissed? It will never end. But that's o.k. because seeing is believing, and I'm a firm believer.
