Britain releases batch of files on UFO sightings


news.yahoo.com


"Everyone became aware that the object was unidentified," their report said. "SATCO (code name for a controller with 14 years experience) reports that the object came in 'at speed,' made a touch and go on runway 27, then departed at 'terrific speed' in a 'near vertical' climb."

The incident is one of the more credible in the newly public files because it was reported by air traffic controllers, said David Clarke, a UFO expert who worked with the National Archives on the document release.

"They were absolutely astonished," he said. "It was a bright, circular object, flashing different colors, and after it touched down it disappeared at fantastic speed. The report comes from very qualified people, and it's one of the few that remained unexplained."The incident is one of hundreds of reported sightings contained in more than 1,000 pages of formerly secret UFO documents being released Wednesday by Britain's National Archives. It is one of the few that was never explained.

So there seems to be a serious trend towards disclosure at the Moment...

Vatican declares belief in Aliens congruent with belief in God

Recent Mass Sightings in Germany

Alabama Sightings

Not to mention a billion others I didn't want to link here....

So Is This The Year?

Not to get all whiney or anything, but 5 flags and no replies? Really?
Is there anyone across the pond who might have some more information on this? Some hands on information perhaps? Does anyone else see this as another step in the future disclosure?

Starred and Flagged! Thanks for posting this jason!

It has been a terrific cover-up job by TPTB for the past 60 years, but it can't last forever.


I have had too many sightings to count.

Was about to post it myself but you got in first. Will be downloading the files when available.

Starred and Flagged.

BTW Did you see the other thread about NASA's announcement to make a statement on the 15th? Don't know what it's about but it could be interesting (based on all this current disclosure that's going on).

Hey, from you thats quite a compliment.
I believe that the announcement is actually just about one of the four types of energy. At least thats what I found out.... Does anyone here live in England? Give us the lowdown on what this really is and means?

Okay, so I've backtracked and filled in all the links, to both the BBC article, and the actual UK site for the release. I have no Idea why I have 9 flags, and two responses, but I am assuming that you are all trying to absorb the data. Please share with me anything that looks real interesting. I cannot get the files myself...

I wonder when North America will come forward and offer disclosure on the subject. I think Canada will not disclose until the US does. Full disclosure will be when the American government discloses.

I have asked some of our Chinese and Russian friends on this site what they believe, and some of them have pointed out that due to the impact of what full disclosure will mean, these super-powers, the ones who actually interacted on a larger scale, hold disclosure as the ultimate trump card. You have to deal with the fall out, but can also leave a lot of trust dissipated with the others government. Disclosure is one of the last great weapons...

Well it's not like the people trust the government anyway. They have lied to us many times, they have had injustice, and let corporations take over. It's not like a disclosure will hurt anyone. My parents have been Christian for about 50 years now and they believe in aliens, as do my neighbors. If they lied to us the best way to fix it is to start telling us the honest truth and restore our trust in them.

What I believe more is that there just might actually be a secret government agreement with certain species, or even more, that we would find out that our government has been hiding technological breakthroughs...

I am a christian, and I find the idea of other beings an obvious fact, one that does not contradict my faith..

I'm staying up late, waiting for our friends,in the UK to wake up... so is there any good things in these reports? Anything we can link to the French releases last year?

The National Archives UFO files are kept at the following URL UFO's at the National Archives

And here are Direct links to the files in question:

DEFE/24/1925 - UFO reports (51.7 Mb)

DEFE/24/1924 - UFO reports (43.2 Mb)

DEFE/24/1923 - UFO reports (32.7 Mb)

DEFE/24/1922 - UFO reports (13.8 Mb)

DEFE/31/175 - UFO incidents (15.3 Mb)

DEFE/31/174 - UFO incidents (22.6 Mb)

DEFE/31/173 - UFO incidents (45.7 Mb)

DEFE/31/172 - UFO incidents (14.6 Mb)

Be careful however as it looks like either the site is connected to the internet using a waxed thread and tin cups or its being hammered for traffic.

At the moment I am not getting anything greater than 1k per second even when I can get into a page so I will have to leave the job to my auto downloaders to see what happens.

As for the BBC article... Well, you can see for yourself it's an MSM media point and laugh job highlighting only the most ridiculous and easily debunk-able cases whilst simultaneously providing an official denial negating the phenomena and discouraging people from actually going to look directly at the files..

It's also important to remember that these documents are provided in response to a UK FOI request and as such will contain nothing which may be deemed as of 'defence significance' since that information is exempt from FOI as determined by the national secrets act and the air force and sec-def has even told the commons that such information will never be disclosed.

Cheers.
Absence.

From the BBC News Story my favorite has got to be:


A further document reveals how, on 21 February 1982, a group of customers and staff at a Tunbridge Wells pub reported an unknown object with green and red flashing lights - seen heading in the direction of Gatwick airport.


No wonder the report was classified!

Thank you so much for finally linking these. I realize that all but he most esily debatable sightings are probably still classified, however I am most interested in finding some links between these cases and th French cases released last year. It will probably take a while to link all of these, as I see what you mean about the DL time... If anyone else can help with these connections, feel free....
I think a major part of understanding why some of these visis occur will rely heavily on determining world flight paths....

They had a brief news article on this on GMTV (uk breakfast show) this morning, of course the news reader laughed as she was reading the story and they highlighted "little green men" and displayed a pretty childish drawing to which the presenters commented no wonder they were kept secret if that's the quality of the reports...or words to that effect.

On Sky news, they had a slightly more journalistic approach to it although they did play the X files music over the video footage.. Nick Pope was on and looked fairly despondent about the whole affair..

Ah well .. there you go, just what you'd expect really

All the best
