      Liberty Co., FAA to discuss report of object near plane

      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, officials said.
      �The pilot, from what we understand, was former military. He was able to get the coordinates down real quick,� said Cpl. Hugh Bishop with the Liberty County Sheriff�s Department.
      Sheriff�s deputies searched Friday night for signs of evidence where a missile might have been launched or landed.
      �We couldn�t find anything,� Bishop said.
