‘Record’ Newspaper

We revealed earlier this year that pilots preparing to land at Glasgow Airport reported a strange object flying underneath the plane at 3500ft. Little Billy Orsmond thinks he could have solved the mystery.

The A320 airliner had 180 passengers on board and was on its final approach to Glasgow airport.

The Record revealed yesterday that aviation experts had been left baffled when the crew of the airliner described how a strange object loomed in front of them before flying underneath the plane at 3500ft.

Neither radar nor the plane’s traffic collision avoidance system picked up the UFO.

A mysterious track, 1.3 nautical miles east of the plane, was reported by Prestwick Air Traffic Control.

And the incident was logged in the official UK Airprox report into aviation near misses. It happened last December over Baillieston, 13 miles from Glasgow airport.

Billy Osmond The mystery of a UFO which narrowly missed an aircraft above Scotland could lie in the hands of a four-year-old boy. Around the same time, little Billy Orsmond lost grip of his prized 6ft-long helium-filled shark toy and watched it fly into the air, never to be seen again.

Billy’s dad, James, 25, of Baillieston, said last night: “I saw the Record story and just about fell over.

“The report said the object was blue and yellow and silvery. I just thought, ‘Aw naw’ because that was the colour of Billy’s remote control shark and it went missing round about the time of the incident.

“Billy only had the toy for a couple of weeks. It cost about £15 from Argos, but the shark was big and would probably look bigger in the sky. We’d just had it re-filled with helium before this incident happened. At the time, I thought that was why it flew out his hands and into the sky.

“We had no idea it could cause this type of thing to happen but the more I think about it, the more I think that is what happened.

“Billy was gutted about losing it and I was gutted for him, too. But part of me was glad to see the back of it. It used to float around the house, turning up when you didn’t expect it.

“I nearly had a heart attack one night when I woke up and there it was hovering next to the bed. Billy’s mum, Julie, was terrified of it.”
