A Porter Airlines Dash 8 aircraft with 54 passengers was forced to swerve to avoid collision with a UFO after it encountered the object at about 9,000 feet. At the time, the plane was on approach to Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport. Two people were injured.

"The pilots noticed an object in the distance (and) as they approached the object, they realized it was very close to their flight path," Porter Airlines said in a statement.

At first the pilots thought it was a balloon, but also acknowledged it could have been a drone. Given that no one knows for sure, the object is officially a UFO, causing many to speculate that it was something else entirely.

Whatever the object was, two flight attendants were injured, causing many to be concerned about future flights. Whether it was a drone or something even scarier, this might not be the last incident like this. And next time, it could be worse.
