Bonnybridge has been a hive of activity for quite some time.
I remember listening to Scot FM around Autumn 1992 when a great number of people were phoning into Wee Fat Bob to report sightings on one particular
night. There were the odd funny ones -"I saw an orange light, and then it went red and after a while green" "Was it traffic lights?" "Aye! it
was" but there was also a lot of people saying they really had seen things. Long distance truck drivers, taxi drivers, families and so forth were all
I hoped into a car and headed out hoping to see it for myself. The sightings were still coming in thick and fast when the radio presenter Scottie
McClue came on air at 10PM. He was a bit of an antagonist and was telling people to stop wasting his time but people were calling up and were adamant
about what they were seeing.
I stayed out until 2AM looking for any unusual aerial activity. I got a decent vantage point on a hill near Bonnybridge (Near a company that had a
weird logo that looked a bit like a 'Grey' alien head) and I saw a helicopter but nothing else.
I was a touch more of a 'believer' then and was desperate to get a sighting but seems I was out of luck on that front.
Whatever the cause of these sightings are is unknown to me. There are a few military bases near the area and 2 large airports in Glasgow and Edinburgh
which provide the sky with constant traffic. That's why when many people call in about unusual flying objects you can be sure that they know what a
commercial jet is.
There are a few interesting stories surrounding UFOs and the area but there are also some hoaxes (Some guy got Chinese lanterns at New Year but is
convinced that they're something more than that).
Nice thread Karl and I hope you get many more tales which give you something to research. S+F
