in the mid 90s I heard on the BBc news about a R.A.F. harrier that went crashed into the english channel but the poilot was not in the plane when the navy got to it ( it was been trackd on rader because it suddenly vered of course) but the poilet was found later in a field asleep, with out a parachute ( I think a passerby found him I cant be sure) I never heard anymore about this I was woundering did anyone here here of this and has any futher info on it I have searched all over the net but found nothing, ( I heard that there was a lot of ufo activity in the area at the time) so I would be very happy if anyone out there could help get more info .... I know this has nothing to do with this thread but I didnt know where to start asking

Hi WG3,

Could you thell me if this is correct ? :

The closest distance between the trees and you is 0.4 mile (700 m). Was your photo used for the reconstruction taken on the same road and within one of your POV during the sighting ?

Thanks.

It may indeed have been a thin, vertical, rectangular balloon, who knows? It didn't 'feel' a balloon. As we all have, I've seen lots of balloons and this wasn't 'balloon like' as I perceived it.

Even with very conservative estimates, this object would be at least 15 m thick and 50 m high. If I'm not mistaken, let's say 1.5 cm (less than a thumb width but it is easy to overestimate angular size) at arm's length, 70 cm. For 700 m (a bit less than a half mile, let's be conservative again) the width would be 15 m! Not so "thin" !

Yes, your Google map shows the correct location.
The image for my reconstruction was simply taken from Google Images. I didn't have a camera with me. I just selected what looked like a similar scene and used that to add the object in a simple paint program. Nothing in that reconstruction was created at the actual location. My intention was to give everyone a reasonably close impression of scale and distance.

OK, to complete my report on this phenomenon, I decided to go back to the location this morning and take some photos of the terrain. On the Google Earth images, you'll see a small loop like layby on the left side of the northbound A19 just past the tile works. I parked there and took four pictures of the view looking north-west towards the small wood about a half mile away. This was as close to the place as I could get on foot. The A19 heads north alongside the right edge of this composite image. There's no footpath and I wasn't prepared to endanger myself by walking up the highway. The weather was pretty much as it was on Sunday and I arrived at the same time in order to match the lighting conditions (sunny).

Here is the 10mb image I made from four separate shots in a Fuji Finepix pocket camera.


Viewed full size, this image is much wider than a monitor screen so it will require scrolling to see everything.

I have inserted where I think the object would be as seen from the layby. As I drove up the A19, I saw it above the tree line to the north-west. I remember observing it through several passing trees located closer to the road. I guess these were probably trees A and B. By the time I had passed tree B, the roadside hedge began to rise higher and I soon lost sight of the object because of this. It continues all the way into Escrick.

Prior to taking the photos, I followed the A19 and turned left just before Escrick and travelled a mile or so along the tree line as you see it in the collage. There is nothing in the area which might have given rise to an optical illusion of some kind. There are just rolling fields, farmsteads and trees. The phenomenon I observed remains a mystery. The only rational explanation I can come up with is a gigantic balloon of some kind. However, the shape, scale and character of what I saw, is unlike any balloon I have ever seen and it is unlike anything Balloon Rides Ltd are familiar with.

May I deduce that you work for BSC filters?

You lost me I'm afraid. But no.

You were looking at me. I answered.

Hi WG3,

Your observation took place in the countryside, there's nothing in front or behind the trees that could explain why would someone use a balloon tied to the ground because it is too far away from any busy road to advertise anything written on it. But does the shape & color alone of X remind you of anything (product) that could be advertised and that's being sold in the UK ?

Things I would verify if I were you :

I would go to all the farms you spotted on google earth and ask them the following questions :

-Did they see it or heard any story related to your sighting ?
-Did they or their fellow farmers rent their land for a rave party & party or heard anything (sounds) the night before or during the day ?
-Did they hear anything about some commercial & short movie & movie & music video that was filmed in the area or any kind of special event that gathered people like a blimp contest with airship modelers for example or similar ?


Then I would do the same thing in the little town and houses located NW of the little forest...you never know but I would not waste any time.

Google search might help you as well in trying to find out if any perticular event took place in the area. Oh and don't forget to check on any local or national ufo-related websites & forums, etc...


That's all I can tell you for now but I guess I can undestand how you feel because my sighting took place during daytime as well and I still cannot find a rational explanation. Very frustrating isn't it ?

Cheers and good luck.
Europa

Was reading a hot topic thread today WG3 and came across your thread. I realize it's almost a year old, not sure if you'll read this or not.

But In the process of reading links to the hot topic, there was a thread here on ATS www.abovetopsecret.com... by a guy named NeoSocialist, who is or was from York area also when his wife reported seeing something almost identical to what you saw.

Anyways, just a heads up.
