Was rocket moments from striking Continental flight?

Probe of launch near Bush airport has stalled, FAA records indicate

A Continental airliner might have been only a minute away from colliding with what the pilot described as a model rocket that shot past his cockpit window, Federal Aviation Administration records obtained by the Houston Chronicle show.

On Memorial Day, the Continental pilot reported being startled by his encounter with this object that "went straight up" and left a long white vapor trail.

Yet the trail to identifying this object has appeared to run cold since the FAA and the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force launched their investigation into the episode.

For starters, the radar at George Bush Intercontinental Airport was unable to detect any unusual object in the sky when Flight 1544 took off. A video recording, acquired from the FAA through a Chronicle open record request, shows the radar detected nothing but dozens of airplanes.

UK Sightings Persist, Lantern Theory Crumbles and UFOs Invade The Outback

Even though the news media has satisfied itself that the UFO sightings that began on June 7, 2008 in the UK were nothing more than Chinese lanterns set off for a wedding celebration that same day, there is yet another credible sighting report that occurred in the area days later. Dr Simon Griffey, 50, and his son Jack, 23, say they were driving near Llangynidr Mountain in the Brecon Beacons, Powys, when they spotted unusual lights over Talybont-on-Usk in Wales. The incident took place on June 12, 2008 at around 11:40pm and Jack took a cell phone photograph of the lights. It would have been impossible for the lanterns released on June 7th to account for those lights because they would have all burned out and crashed to earth by that time.
