I dont trust nor believe anything that Nick Pope says, that bloke seems to be a false information agent to me. I cant tell you why and honestly dont have actual proof but for the last five years every time I see him he just feels wrong to me, like he tries to push himself into every single UFO debate or investigation, he just doesn't sit right with me and beside, I wouldn't really take this claim to heart because they cant prove it, I can sit here and say The Queen is a three eyed six legged Alien spider from the planet Aracnid' and if the Royals came out and said 'Oh it's not true' and people said 'Oh but they reckon it's not true' I'd only come back with 'And what, you were expecting them to say that they were?'
Nick Pope in anything UFO related puts me off it straight away, so the above might just be a ramble but I still dont trust him.

The similarity to the F-117 is obvious to me. Today we have seen tons of pictures, but in April 1990 it was shown (completly) publically. Two Scottish hikers not familiar with planes? What would they have thought?
By Chance: Did anybody write down the dates when the F-117 left the US desert to head to Iraq? The F-177 is quiet slow and it could appear as "hovering" from a distance. It would also be kind of logic that "standard" planes clear the route in forein airspace, because other civilian planes can't see them. This was practise in the US before with A-7 and T-38 night guards.
And the max air speed of the Harrier fits also for the F-117... would you send it for a real UFO?
“My comments concerning Alien Invasion etc, arose because I was commissioned to do some tie-in PR for the launch of the alien invasion themed Sony Playstation game, “Resistance: Burning Skies”, out exclusively on the Playstation Vita. I came up with the idea of an alien invasion war plan."
"Turning specifically to your comments concerning Mr Pope, I
should point out that he was a junior desk officer in the
Secretariat(Air Staff)2a section from 1991-1994 and was not in
charge of, or the head of any part of Secretariat (Air Staff)2.
Mr Pope was an executive officer and shared the support of one
administrative officer. Although Sec(AS)2a was, and still is,
the focal point for handling queries directed at the MOD in
connection with "unexplained" aerial sightings, during Mr Pope's
time such work represented a small part of his overall duties.
There were no staff working on this subject on a full-time basis
and this remains the case."
(DEFE24/2000 page 43)
"The first point to make is that there is no 'UFO Project'.
Handling of UFO sightings is a very small element of our work."

People are ready to accept someone who works for a government office to be credible, since a common logical fallacy is the argument from authority. People have a tendency to believe that big credentials mean integrity and trustworthiness.
Whatever the object in that 'UFO' picture is, an F-117 it most certainly is not.
He claimed there would be mass UFO sightings during the 2012 Olympics.
Speaking earlier this month, he said: 'It has been a widely held belief in Ministry of Defence circles that "aliens" have been able to detect us for decades via TV and radio broadcasts.
'What once seemed like science fiction is steadily being realised by central governing bodies as distinctly real.
'If aliens have studied our psychology, they may choose to appear in our skies on a significant date.
'The closing ceremony of the Olympic Games is one date being widely circulated by conspiracy groups.

He is usually referred to (and refers to himself as) a "senior MoD official"
