I'm surprised this case hasn't been discussed yet..absolutely unbelievable case.

After a search here, I found only two other threads related to Binbrook. The first one only mentions the name in a list.

The second one is:

From over a year ago.

There's a link on that thread that looks pretty interesting

Interesting story. I used to live in Binbrook, right next to the base, when I was a kid, we moved away in 1970 just before this incident.

Pretty strange that some instruments and the pilot was missing.

With all the spelling and punctuation errors, it's hard for me to take it seriously.

Interesting story nonetheless.

so what happened to the pilot? I think the gov got to him first before his fellow air men were able to mount a rescue. They were buying time by having him fly in circles. I don t think aliens had anything to do with his dissapearance .... well not directly. I think he saw and was involved in something that demands utmost secrecy and to keep that secret he was picked up first by the ..well i dunno MIB?

The article about the "incident at RAF Binbrook" is a rather distasteful and inaccurate portrayal of the death of Captain William Schaffner when his Lightning jet crashed into the North Sea during September 1970.

I hope that the members of the "Fair Skeptic" Registry being discussed in a separate thread do not wait to be invited to criticize such offensive material. They need to be proactive in commenting upon such material.

Nick Pope has written about the distress expressed by Captain Schaffner's sons about the UFO rumours concerning their father's death. Nick has written: "The aircraft had crashed during a tactical evaluation exercise. Schaffner's aircraft was vectored onto a Shackleton, with a view to practising low speed shadowing and shepherding. During the course of this difficult task, Schaffner flew his aircraft into the sea. There was no hint of any UFO connection."

Various other British researchers (including Dave Clarke) have made similar comments following their research into the death of Captain Schaffner.

For discussion of this incident in various UFO books, see also:

Clarke, David and Roberts, Andy in their “Out of the Shadows” (2002) at pages 211-213 (in Chapter 11) of the Piatkus hardback edition.

Dodd, Tony in his “Alien Investigator” (1999) at pages 233-252 (in Chapter 8) of the Headline paperback edition.

Downes, Jonathan in his “The Blackdown Mystery” (2000) at pages 23-25 (in Chapter 3) of the CFZ spiralbound edition.

Druffel, Ann in her “Firestorm : Dr James E McDonald’s Fight for UFO Science” (2003) at pages 358-360 (in Chapter 13) of the Wild Flower Press softcover edition.

Pope, Nick in his “Open Skies, Closed Minds” (1996) at pages 194-195 (in Chapter 11) of the Simon and Schuster hardback edition, with the same page numbering in the Pocket Books paperback edition.

Redfern, Nick in his “Cosmic Crashes” (1999) at pages 101-106 (in Chapter 5), 206 (in Chapter 10) of the Simon & Schuster hardback edition.
