Near Miss Between "Rocket" and Continental Flight Over Texas

An interesting tidbit from my neck of the woods:

Liberty County Sheriff’s officials are expected to meet with the FAA on Tuesday to discuss what a Continental Express pilot reported as a “missile or rocket” flying near his airplane.

A pilot reported to the Federal Aviation Administration that at about 8:15 p.m. Friday, an object passed within 150 feet beneath the aircraft, sheriff’s officials said.

The aircraft was near the southern edge of the county, flying at about 13,000 feet

Local authorities searched the area reported by the jet’s pilot but turned up nothing.
