Mystery object nearly causes mid-air collision

Authorities are investigating a mysterious object that almost caused a mid-air collision last week. The Federal Aviation Administration are attempting to determine what the object was and if it could pose further risk to aircraft. Described by the pilot at the time as a "large remote controlled aircraft", the object came close enough to cause serious concern as the plane flew at around 8,000ft over Cherry Creek. "That's an issue because now we have something in controlled airspace that poses a danger," said aviation analyst Greg Feith. "Was this an unmanned vehicle that was part of some sort of law enforcement operation? Was this somebody that had flown a large model aircraft inadvertently into the airspace?"
