Another aircraft on a collision course with yours is one of the hardest
objects to locate in what you see out the window.  This is particularly
true if it's in straight and flight, because the geometry of the
situation is such that that a/c will not move relative to your window,
and is thus indistinguishable from a speck of dirt until it's rather
late.
