Just thought I would post a few comments...from my Dad actually. I personally have had no experience with UFO's, at least nothing I could easily
explain logically. But my Dad has.
My Dad served in the RAF and is recently retired. He worked as a fighter controller (Looking at a radar screen , spying on enemy activity and
commanding fighter aircraft and so on...) so I though to myself...He must have seen something in his 50 years ....So I asked him. He gave me two very
interesting events when he was stationed in Cyprus (I was around 4 or 5 at the time) . There are no pictures, or anything, just simply me sharing a
1) During a conflict in 1982 between Lebanon and Israel, my Dad was tracking a US Black Bird flying over the theatre making sure that no missles were
fired and that the Israelies did not try and shoot it down. All of a sudden he got a panicked message from the Pilot about an object keeping track
about 3-400 metres from his wing tip and asked my Dad to look at the Radar, do some kind of special scan (Which he still won't tell me about) to try
and see if the object was there. No surprise my dad did not see a thing. But here is a rough transcript of that event that he still had in his
records. Call Sign for my dad in this case is BG:
Pilot: "Object is keeping track.....roughly south....level flight..anything on the Radar"
BG: "Nothing at this stage Pilot. Can you ID"
Pilot " Negative. Object is reflective and silver, can not see any wings, appears to be cylindrical in shape. You must be seeing this on radar"
BG "Nothing on the screen, you are clear, in contact with Fighter Command and no other aircraft are in your zone"
Pilot "Well I can see it.....WOOOHA! It just moved in front of me now....that was fast....It is a cylinda...chrome...no texture. Its matching my
speed. Decending , collision path"
BG " Communications open to ?????? (Can not repeat that bit - scrubbed out of text, I think the comms channels are then opened to other people to
listen in on coversation) Snap shots taken - Still nothing on screen - Decend 2000ft"
Snap Shots - Once something starts happening i.e. Dog Fight or UFO, my dad starts taking snap shots of the radar screen every 5 seconds . After the
event they effectively create a flip book so they can track objects on the screen and see how they reacted.
Pilot "Unable to perform, object now moved below me"
BG "No traffic reported from Israel"
Pilot "Object is moving fast...WOW how fast...I can't even see it..its above me...below me again. Its like its just playing with me"
BG " Course change requested Pilot"
BG " Denied - Stay on course"
Pilot "Aknoweldged - Its crazy. Everthing I do it matches instantly. Object is in front again. Scram to engage?"
BG "Negative - No fighters in your zone"
Pilot" - Object is moving around me again....I can't believe how fast this thing is........its gone....North West....Im shaking"
After the event, my dad sat with the heads of intel at his base and they created the Radar flip book if you like. During the event the radar did not
spot anything. But they did tracking something leaving the location of the Black Bird at the time when the pilot said it had gone North
West.....Travelling at 10,000 KMPH before it went out of radar range.
2) 2nd one is a little shorter. This is when he was back in sunny old England, working at a new facility...which is now closed. It was an underground
Radar base in Norfolk, which is ....believe it or not....for sale. I have been there and its like a flipin town centre...but 1/4 of a mile under
ground. He tracked 5 objects in a V formation travelling over the UK. Only for them to stop mid air for about 1/2 an hour before shooting off the
radar from standing start to 5000 mph in about a second.
So thats it folks....Nowt interesting really, just thought I would share my dads little experience with you.
