I know its slightly off topic(Aircorps) but in todays Evening Herald theres a report about the increasing sightings of unknown A/C, and other UFO's over the east coast. This article pays particular attention to a recent event which took place on June 30th at 01.50hrs over Dublin which invovled 11 unknown radar returns at EIDW which appeared at various locations around the city and suburbs. A pilot said he seen green and red lights moving erratically over Santry,Malahide and finglas(GASU heli maybe???) and that they reported it to ATC before having a near miss with an object that caused turbulance and the TCAS to warn of an impending collision before shooting off "like lightning". The pilot also estimated that the object was 30ft long and 10 feet high making it oval in appearance. Intresting stuff guys!!
Frank, how about starting up a thread about this sort of stuff??? The pilots want to remain anonymous for obvious reasons so maybe people could share stories here??
I know some people totally rubbish this subject but it doesnt have to be all about little green men with ray guns, after all these objects/craft that were seen accelerating to warp speed in june had red and green lights, which suggests terrestrial origin. Black ops along the east coast anyone??
I seen a UFO when I was about 13/14, and just for the record, im not a mad man looking for attention, and I mean UFO in its true meaining, not little green men in dust bin lid shaped things
no seriously though, I seen 2 red lights maneuvering about one night, hard to explain in writing but basically thery were crossing each others paths very quickly and there airspeed was fast too, and there was no noise, this was on a completley silent and clear night.
left us who had seen it a little puzzled.
So i wouldnt discount there story completly, especially when they had radar contacts.

If the intruder aircraft has no Mode S, then no altitude information is available and the system will only issue a TA (Traffic Advisory) ie. an aural "TRAFFIC, TRAFFIC" warning.
If both aircraft are Mode S equipped, then if the system percieves a collision with in 20 secs, the TA will be followed by an RA (Resolution Advisory) ie "CLIMB, CLIMB NOW" or "DESCEND, DESCEND NOW", or one of several other types.
