It needs some onomatopoeia in there. Full Size

If that relatively small dent is caused by a collision with a UFO, it must have been a very very small UFO.

Airline officials have so far refused to say what caused the damage - but flying saucer experts saying it could have been a UFO.


And I suppose if they don't know what caused the damage then technically it IS a UFO.

Unless it's that, of course.

Find the plane registration/tail number and look it up in the incident database thing.  Bets on unexpected interaction with something while not doing 800km/p/h

How the heck does a plane run into a streetlight?

Now if they'd have asked bigfoot experts, they'd have told you the damage could have been caused by a yeti.

For once, it's not a lie to say it was just the tip.
2013-06-10 09:07:27 PM  
Now you tell everyone it was a UFO from space, not our brand-new super-secret spy drone we've been working on to watch America, or we cook and eat your ENTIRE family.  Understand?

Sure, it could have been a meteorite. But that's what they want you to think.

Iknhaton: What the hell  is a "Flying Saucer Expert"?

Poor Engrish translation for "Frying Saucer Expert" aka someone who's an expert in frying pans.

I was going to say that shoddy materials and poor construction could have caused the nose cone to partly collapse while in flight due to the air pushing against it.

Ground related incident would seem likely as well.

Looks like it hit a streetlight.

Dang, that's a big dent. How are they going to pop the hood and check the oil before the next flight?

That's definitely a shark bite.

I've seen the nose damage like that before from a birdstrike.

I guess it would be an uniform tidied flying object until the identify the species of bird.
2013-06-10 11:34:48 PM  
UFO people must be terrible drivers to navigate hundreds of light years only to crash into a slow moving jet.....
2013-06-11 01:04:14 AM  
The UFO in question might just be a bird.

I know that bats have been spotted at up to 10,000 feet in Texas feeding on bugs.

I have no idea how the bugs got there.

Looks like a bird strike, but technically that could be a UFO if you don't know what species it was.

Plane made in China...someone probably leaned on it.
2013-06-11 12:08:02 PM  
26,000 feet is a little high for a bird, but it's not unheard of, especially if there were strong thermals in the area.

The thing that strikes me as odd, though, is the absence of the usual smear of blood and feathers. Usually when you hit an animal at 400 mph at least part of that animal is going to end up on your vehicle. I would almost think "giant hailstone", maybe they were flying over some rough weather? The odds of that have got to be much better than "meteorite" or "spaceship from Melmac".
