Crime Stoppers is offering a reward for information what appeared to be a model rocket that nearly missed a Continental Express jet late last month.

The rocket sizzled past the plane after it took off from Bush Intercontinental Airport about 8 p.m. on May 29, officials said.

Investigators determined it lifted off somewhere in Chambers County, but they have been unable to find out who launched it.

The pilot said the rocket passed about 100 feet beneath the plane. It looked to be five to seven feet long.
