Aviation experts and ufologists are puzzled by an object that forced a Perth-bound flight to take evasive measures, last year, to avoid a collision.

On March 19, a Skippers Aviation flight was forced to change its approach to Perth airport after the crew spotted a "bright strobe light" directly in front of the aircraft.

The DeHavilland DHC-8 aircraft was about 25 kilometres north-east of Perth at an altitude of around 4000 feet when the object passed within 20 metres of the flight, according to an incident report lodged with the Australian Transport Safety Authority.

The pilot's testimony in the report described the object as "cylindrical in shape and grey in colour."

UFO researcher Paul Dean told 6PR that while this object is definitely terrestrial in origin, it begs further investigation. Especially given it was the second time a Skippers flight had reported an incident like this.

Speaking with Chris Ilsley, Mr. Dean said another Skippers' flight reported an identical incident in nearly the same location at approximately the same time on January 4, 2013.

"Someone is launching stuff, possibly missile like, from the ground. And whether it's being deliberately done at planes or not, we don't know. But it tells us there is something not quite right."

Mr. Dean said military sources have ruled out the possibility of a drone or a missile test from known military sites like Pearce Air Base. An assertion that is backed by the ATSA's report from the 2014 incident.
