Is it a bird, is it a plane? No - it's a mystery man flying past an Airbus full of passengers as it flew over Macclesfield at 3,500ft
Pilots of Airbus 320 left stunned when a 'flying man' passed their aircraft
The man flew within 100 metres of the plane as it made its descent into Manchester Airport
There was no sign of him on the radar and neither pilot could see a canopy suspending him
The official report in to the incident said it was 'frustrating' they could not corroborate what happened

Pilots on a holiday jet were left stunned when a 'flying man' whizzed past their aircraft at 3,500 feet.
The mystery man flew within 100 metres of the plane and left the pilots baffled as to how he was moving through the air, as neither could see a canopy suspending him.
There was also no sign of him on the radar and further checks failed to reveal any paragliders, parachutists or balloonists in the area at the time.

The man whizzed within 100 metres of the plane over Macclesfield and left pilots baffled (stock image)
He appeared from nowhere as the Airbus 320 was coming in to land at Manchester Airport on Friday June 13
He appeared from nowhere as the Airbus 320 passed Macclesfield while it was coming in to land at Manchester Airport and has been dubbed the 'Superman of Macclesfield'.


The Airprox Board, which looks in to near misses, said: 'They first sighted the object a few hundred metres in the 11 o'clock position 200 to 300ft above.
'It passed down the left-hand side of the aircraft at 100 to 200m.
'The crew only saw it fleetingly, there was no time to take avoiding action and they based their assumptions on it being a person under a canopy. But neither can remember seeing a canopy.'

The man has been dubbed 'Superman of Macclesfield' after he was spotted in the air over the Cheshire town
The official report in to the incident on Friday June 13 admitted it was 'unfortunate' and 'frustrating' there was 'no way of corroborating what they had reported'.
It added that the flight crew 'couldn't be certain that it wasn't a person-shaped balloon.'
Aviation expert Chris Yates said: 'It is a complete and utter mystery.'

That's actually a good idea Silver! Might even get a few more UFO videos.
