I was hoping any of you great people would be able to provide me with any further information regarding a mass sighting of a UFO that appeared above
RAF Akrotiri sometime back in the early 70's.
My father was working alongside a number (Hundreds) of other servicemen on night shift one night when a very bright light appeared over the base. My
father, who does not like to discuss this often (If at all) describes the UFO as miles wide light. It was so bright that everything became like
daylight. He says it could be up to four to five miles wide (square / rectangle shape). He and many others walked outside of the hangers to take a
look in to the sky. He said that when he got outside, it was difficult to look up. He had to cover/shield his eyes. He says that (to him) the object
looked like a large frame of scaffolding?? It made no sound at all, but he says others who saw it spoke of feeling it?
It apparently hung around for a while, enough for several hundred people to get a good look at it.
I believe some jets were sent up to intercept or inspect the craft but at that instant it vanished?
I believe they were all made to describe and draw what they had all seen and to not discuss anything.
My father is a very humble and grounded person and never one to lie. He mentioned it once when he was drunk one night when I was a kid, but gets
extremely shy about it when I've asked him since. I would love to know if anyone has any other information about this sighting.
I believe there may have been nuclear weapons there at that time? Dad was part of 617 squadron (Yes, Dam busters) but during this time it was the Avro
Vulcan with a payload of "Blue-Steel" bombs. What with odd sightings at other nuclear bases, maybe this had something to do with it?
However, if Aliens were ever going to make a point and show up, they certainly did that night. Apparently this thing was HUGE. Horizon blocking HUGE.
