This is from Khagol, the quarterly bulletin of the IUCAA of India. It is entitled "A Narrow Miss."
A passenger jet was traversing Arizona on a clear day. The copilot was bombarding the passengers with remarks about landmarks over the PA system.

"Coming up on the right side of our cabin, you can see the Meteor Crater. A major tourist attraction in northern Arizona, it was formed when a lump of nickel and iron weighing 300,000 tons, 150 feet across, struck the earth at 40,000 miles an hour, scattering white-hot debris for miles in every direction. The hole measures nearly a mile across and is 570 feet deep."

From the cabin, a passenger was heard to exclaim, "Wow! It just missed the highway!"
