UFOs & Airplanes: Near Misses & Mid-Air
I'm always confused when I hear the term "near miss." What does that even mean? They should call them "near-hits" because that's what they do. They nearly hit in mid-air. "Near miss" is such a boring term that people don't pay attention to on the news when a story breaks. I think it's because "near miss" sounds like the incident was no big deal. There was no mid air collision, so why would someone give a frogs fat-ass about a story that "almost" happened... but totally didn't. It's so anticlimactic.
The people in charge need to change the mid air collision terminology to something more intriguing and exciting. It would be way better for everything if they referred to "near misses" as "near mid air explosions" or "near mid air implosions" or "near mid air nosedive" or even "near mid air everyone crapped their pants, but no one died."
Below is a video that displays several cases of "near mid air everyone crapped their pants, but no one died." Each clip focused on collisions that were narrowly avoided between an Airplane and a UFO. Maybe aliens are just horrible pilots....
