Missile Narrowly Misses Continental Airlines Flight in Texas


HOUSTON - A missile may have just barely miss hitting a Continental Airlines flight on Friday.

Liberty County sheriff deputies are meeting with the FBI and FAA to discuss this incident.

Sheriff deputies say on Friday a missile may have been launched near Interstate 10 and mount Belview. A continental flight which had just taken off from Bush Intercontinental Airport may have been the target.

"If it was done deliberately, how much more dangerous can you get?" said Chief Deputy Ken DeFoor with the Liberty County Sheriff's Department. He went on to explain, "It was less than a hundred feet from the airplane itself, going underneath the cockpit of the airplane."

According to investigators, the aircraft was a small commuter plane with 25-29 passengers and about four crew members on board.

It was flying above 12,000 feet when just after 8 p.m., the pilot reported seeing what's being described as a missile.
