hi eveyone im quite new here.....and i just wondered if anyone can help me....

I dont know if you heard about the British Army seeing a UFO flying right infront of their aircraft in Wales, UK a couple of months ago and they apparently recorded it.... it was in the news over here, but then suddenly no one hears anything else about it, they said that some officials in the Army had viewed the footage and it was 'very interesting' and that it had been sent to be analised.......

Probably a long shot but i was just wondering if anyone knows anything...

Well, the official stand could be summed up as "reported to relevant authorities, not a police matter, no video recording was made; case closed"

Hi, Linseylegs.
You are probably talking about the UFO sighting that took place in Cardiff, on June 8, 2008.

UFO spotted by police helicopter
A police helicopter crew has spotted what is described as an unusual aircraft in the Vale of Glamorgan.


The helicopter was above St Athan, which is home to an RAF base and close to Cardiff International Airport.
But three-man crew could not capture any images before the object vanished over the Bristol Channel on 8 June.
South Wales Police said the helicopter did not give chase and described the crew as very experienced. The sighting has been reported for investigation.
The helicopter was hovering in the sky at 0040 BST above the base, waiting to land.
A police spokesperson said: "The crew are very experienced and responded in a professional manner in relation to what they saw.

In todays 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,
the spokesperson added.

A Ministry of Defence spokesperson said it had heard nothing about the incident.


But it is certainly not advisable for police helicopters to go chasing what they think are UFOs,
the spokesperson said.

Cardiff International Airport said air traffic control provided a service to the police helicopter to ensure it had appropriate air space, including allowing it space to return to RAF St Athan to refuel.
Meanwhile, a Cardiff pensioner says he also saw something

peculiar with lots of flashing lights
on the same day.

George Withrington, of St Mellons, said he reported the sighting to police and was given an incident number.

The ex-RAF glider pilot said he was sitting in his garden reading a book on 8 June when he spotted the object at around 1620hrs.

There's no footage regarding the sighting.
Some genius, uploaded a video related to THIS sighting

UFO film sparks fresh ET debate
Saturday 17 May, 2003


The images captured over the south coast were filmed by a police helicopter. The UFO was spotted travelling across the coast and was followed for about 10 miles.


None of the crew members on board the helicopter had seen anything like it before or since.

The footage has aroused the interest of UFO enthusiasts. So what could it be? Well, some people think it could be a balloon or some other simple explanation...

wow thanx internos...... yes this is the exact article i was on about,

I didn't hear anything else about it and thought it was strange.....

Well there is always 'a logical explaination' for these things isn't there? I just cant believe that this was reported by trained people, and then just brushed under the carpet 'again'

Ridiculous!

Hi, tarifa37:
no, it's NOT your video the one i was talking about, lolololol: i embedded your video because it HAS to do with the case of the OP: what a funny misunderstanding
.

I was talking about the one uploaded to Liveleak: precisely, THIS ONE which actually is the footage taken by Brighton Police over the Sussex skies but in its description reads:


UK Police Helicopter captures 'UFO' on film
Featured
Raw video:June 08/08:Recently released footage:Welsh police confirmed that one of their helicopter crews had spotted an "unusual aircraft" flying over Cardiff earlier this month.

An investigation into the sighting had been launched, they said.

The police clarification came after tabloid newspaper The Sun reported a UFO had "attacked" a police helicopter, following it for several miles over t More..he Bristol Channel.

"The pilot banked sharply to avoid being hit, then launched into a high-speed pursuit. But he was forced to give up the chase as the helicopter's fuel ran low -- and the UFO escaped," the tabloid reported.

The helicopter crew had described the object as "flying saucer-shaped and circled by flashing lights," it added.

As you can see, the description is misleadeing to say the least: it shows a video taken in Brighton on 2003 and gives a description of the UFO sighting of Cardiff on 2008.
As consequence of that, for example, this thread was started here:
Leaked UFO footage of Police Helicopter Chase

Basically your video HAS to do with the Cardiff's case (and its description is correct), while the one of Liveleak created a series of misunderstandings (including this funny last one
because was misleading, lol ).

Besides, i recall that some UK website or blog also reported that some video was taken even in Cardiff, but as stated by the Crew itself, no videos nor photos were taken. I hope all is clear now.

It's always chinese lanterns or balloons or something random like that.
They are hardly going to say that it was an advanced craft, the likes of which they have never seen are they?

That's right: in almost all the previous threads was mentioned this article:


Wedding couple sparked UFO alert



Guests at the wedding made a wish before each glow lantern was lit
Special glow lanterns set off at a wedding could have been mistaken for a UFO by police officers in a helicopter.

The three-man crew spotted an unusual object in the sky above St Athan on 8 June in the Vale of Glamorgan.

It made headlines around the world but it was only when newlyweds Lucy and Lyn Thomas saw reports on honeymoon that they realised what could have happened. The lanterns were lit in Cowbridge and floated off towards St Athan, close to an RAF base and Cardiff airport.

"There's no doubt in my mind it was our lanterns," said Mr Thomas, 30, a salesman from Llantwit Major in the Vale of Glamorgan.

"We went on the internet on our honeymoon in Turkey and saw a report about this UFO. I thought, 'oh no, it was exactly the same time and I remember they were going straight towards St Athan way'."



The couple first saw the glow lanterns at the Glastonbury festival last year and thought they would make an ideal alternative to fireworks for their "mini festival" wedding party for 150 guests in a field near Cowbridge.

Mr Thomas bought 100 lanterns on an internet auction site and set off about 30 - with guests making wishes - from about 2300 BST on 7 June until 0200 BST on 8 June.

hi daxman

im actually in Rhyl in N.Wales but know Caerphilly quite well as i am in S.wales quite a bit with my job and also have family all around there....

yes i know what you are refering to about the lanterns but i think that was a seperate story, apparently the police got a lot of phone calls that evening... and its so funny that this has been mentioned as my sister threw a party a couple of weeks ago and we let some of these lanterns off in the evening in rememberence to some people and when they are quite high in the sky i understand how people can mistake them for ufo's as they do look strange....

To be frank you've got to be basically blind to confuse a pulating ufo orb with a paper bag elevated by a candle. This is the latest weather balloon type excuse. They look different and they move very differently.

hello 'Frank'

i obviously know this...... i just mentioned this because i understand how some people can just wonder what these things are......

and as for your comment, how can you possibly say what you have just said as you dont actually know for sure what your seeing either.....do you?

pfff!

I know exactly what I'm seeing............ ufo orbs. An intelligent organic life form that probably lives here and in the sky, most of the time in a dimension not visible to very limited human sight in the available light spectrum, shows intelligence, travels largely in similar 'type' pairs, can communicate with you, can fly at dazzling speeds and acrobatics. I also know what they aren't and that certainly includes silly paper bags with candles inside. Include marsh gas too please.
