British Ufologists Quick To Look into Aerial Police Chase of UFO
Gary Anthony, Dave Clarke, and myself are onto this already.
The MoD UFO department has told me that they have no knowledge of this event, though I enquired about the date provided in the newspaper article (7th June).
Dave Clarke has spoken to the Police and they informed him that the event took place on 8th June at 00:40. They also told him that they did not attempt to pursue the object and that it was not saucer-shaped but shaped like an aircraft.
The recent sighting of an alleged UFO by the crew of the South Wales Police Helicopter has generated a veritable storm of inaccurate reporting and sensationalism by news media outlets worldwide.
Continuing hysterical reporting by the Sun newspaper, including their recent devoting of an entire section of their site to the UFO "phenomena" - replete with tales of abduction and dodgy photos galore - are leading to a huge increase in people believing that "something is going on".
Something is going on alright, it's called selling newspapers.
A South Wales Police spokesperson said:
"South Wales Police can confirm the South & East Wales Air Support Unit sighted an unusual aircraft. This was reported to the relevant authorities for their investigation. In today's skies, there are a wide variety of aircrafts which come in a range of different shapes and sizes and in all probability, this sighting has just confirmed that one of these was in the area at the relevant time."
**It was not a flying saucer and has not been described as so.
**the helicopter did not chase it.
**the police helicopter was not attacked.
**The unusual aircraft did not speed straight at the helicopter.
** The helicopter did not have to swerve sharply to avoid being hit and the crew would not have been "dead" as stated in The Sun.
**The helicopter did not follow it, or chase it, across the Bristol Channel and the North Devon coast.
**we haven't confirmed any of the details in The Sun story and a lot of the details are inaccurate.
While there is no doubt that the three man crew of the South & East Wales Air Support Unit saw an unusual aircraft while waiting to land at their base in St Athan, one has to wonder why the Sun newspaper would twist and turn the facts of the story to such an extent as to make it completely unrecognisable from the (boring) truth.
