Chinese Passenger Aircraft Has Collision With UFO: E.T Phone Insurance Company?

E.T. Phone Insurance: Chinese Passenger Aircraft Has High Altitude Collision With UFO

airchinacollision

A Chinese flight was cut short earlier this week when the passenger aircraft had a high altitude collision with an “unknown object”, putting a heck of a dent in the hood and grounding the plane. Did a commercial aircraft get into a fender bender with a UFO?

On June 4th, Air China flight CA4307 took off towards Guangzhou, but just 40┬áminutes later, a mid-air collision with a mysterious foreign object resulted in “worsened performance”, and sent the flight back to its departure point.

When the aircraft landed, and the passengers were safely escorted off, maintenance crews noticed a huge dent in the nose of the plane, prompting an internal investigation into the incident that remains ongoing.

There’s been a lot of speculation about whether or not a bird could have caused a dent of that size, but according to aircraft control, the collision occurred at around 26,000 feet, an altitude with far too little oxygen for anything to survive unaided. Furthermore, there isn’t a drop of blood anywhere near the point of contact, something that occurs in almost every case of plane vs. bird collisions.

There are, however, paint transfer marks, which rules out another popular theory regarding collapsing air pressure in the nose. The plane did hit something, and whatever it was has some new white pinstripes.

Perhaps the plane hit a secret government drone? A wayward piece of falling space junk? A meteor? An unidentified flying object?

Maybe they encountered gremlins!? (Reminds me of that Twilight Zone movie, nightmare at 20,000ft with John Lithgow & original with William Shatner).

I’m gonna guess drone. I don’t think I’ve ever heard a tale of a UFO having a paint job. ­čśÇ

You can’t prove they don’t have paint jobs though.

Sir, you get me a ufo, and I will key the hell out of the thing, just to see if there’s paint or not.8

Only if it is double parked, or in a handicap zone without a sticker.

They did not report a collision at 26,000 feet, they reported mechanical failure which could have been a manifestation of interrupted aerodynamics caused by the large dent. They may have actually stuck the object during or soon after take-off. Which still does not make it a bird, but does make it more likely to have been of terrestrial origin.

Alas poor Mothra…

Occasionally similar damages are caused by rapidly heating and expanding air due to static discharge. Weather radar (WX) radomes are made of thin, hollow aluminum and the biggest problem with similar damages is the WX antenna becomes jammed. Similar static discharge episodes are announced by a huge bang that may be mistaken for an impact, usually followed by a WX failure alert. Practice is to level the plane at 10000 ft and 300 knots to see if there are adverse effects. However Air China procedures may be dictate immediate landing at the nearest airport: I admit not knowing much about… Read more »

So where did the paint scrapes come from?
