While on radar vectors for an ILS approach in class D airspace (Bāle TMA), in descent from 5,000 ft to 4,000 ft, the crew of a Bombardier Challenger 300 business jet (HB-JGQ) saw a glider at the same level at a short distance, on a converging path. The pilot flying disconnected the autopilot and carried out an evasive manoeuvre requiring him to bank up to 45 degrees and take a nose-down attitude. The crew estimated that the glider flew past the right side of the aeroplane at a distance of 30 m and they saw the glider pilot in the cockpit along with the glider's registration number (German registration).
