When electronics engineer Mitch MacAfee spots a UFO as "big as a battleship," from his plane, the Air Force scrambles planes to investigate. However, nothing shows up on radar, and one of the jets is lost during the action. MacAfee is regarded as a dangerous crackpot until other incidents and disappearances convince the authorities that the threat is real. Some believe it is a French-Canadian folk legend come to life, but it turns out to be an extraterrestrial giant bird composed of anti-matter whose disregard for human life and architecture threatens the world.

Flying beast out of prehistoric skies!
Did You Know?
If the gigantic bird were really from an antimatter galaxy, it could not enter the Earth's atmosphere. Its atoms would be comprised of positrons, anti-protons and anti-neutrons. These would immediately undergo annihilation events as they came in contact with any of the regular atomic matter of the air (molecular nitrogen, molecular oxygen, water vapor, etc.). See more
Well, flying battleships, pink elephants, same difference.
I said it looked like a battleship, not that it was a battleship.
