Another possible missile-airline incident in the U.S.

4 June 2009: It was almost a year to the day that a pilot of a Continental Flight 1544 reported seeing appeared to be some type of rocket or missile flying past his cockpit shortly after takeoff from Bush Intercontinental Airport in Texas. The Northeast Intelligence Network reported on that incident at this link.

Last Friday, a Continental Express pilot reported seeing a “missile or rocket” flying within 150 feet of his aircraft as he was flying at 13,000 feet over Liberty County, Texas, on a flight originating in Houston and destined for South Carolina. The pilot reported the incident to the Federal Aviation Administration and the FBI, who met last week with the Liberty County Sheriff’s Department.

According to public news reports, the plane had 29 people on board and continued the flight without further incident. Our investigation is continuing.
