I was talking to my friend today and he was was telling about anincident that took place in the mid 90s, it was about an R.A.F. harrier jet that went out of control and crashed in to the english channel but when it was recoverd the poilot was not in the cockpit and the canopy was still intact,but the poilot was found asleep in a field in a field unharmd has any one else heard this story or know where I can find more info about it ... thanks
Britain’s most plausible alien abduction happened off the East Yorkshire coast, according to some UFOlogists.
The incident happened in September 1970. Foxtrot 94, an RAF Lightning fighter jet crashed into the North Sea.
UFOlogists claim its pilot, Captain William Schaffner was abducted by an alien spacecraft after he’d scrambled to intercept it off Flamborough Head.
The Lightning aircraft was recovered three months later from the seabed. Remarkably, it was virtually undamaged.
The cockpit canopy was shut but there was no sign of Captain Schaffner’s body.
The unusual condition of the wreckage fueled UFOlogists speculations of an alien abduction.
22 October 1987 BAe GR5 (ZD325) lost over the sea while on a pre-delivery test flight from BAe Dunsfold. The pilot was inadvertently removed from the cockpit by the seat separation drogue gun, leaving the Harrier to fly un-manned with the broken canopy attached. The aircraft was intercepted by a passing USAF Lockheed C-5 Galaxy, to check for signs of life, before crashing in the Atlantic Ocean off the Irish coast, due to fuel exhaustion.
22 October 1987 crash of a Harrier aircraft was caused by energies associated with crop circles, and that these energies had caused the spontaneous firing of the pilot’s ejector seat, leading to the man’s death (The body was found in Wiltshire, not far from where some crop circles had appeared in the Summer).
Andrews showed official documents dating from the first crop circles that appeared in England in 1985 to prove the government interest in crop circles has been sustained and comprehensive.
Andrews showed photos of a UFO ‘orb’ in the vicinity of a crop circle that was monitored by two military helicopters. Andrews revealed how the helicopters tried to intimidate crop circle researchers to leave the vicinity and stop filming what was happening. The relationship between the UFO and recently created crop circle was obvious to researchers but this was downplayed by the British government.
Andrews most startling claim was that a British Harrier jet that passed over several crop circles on October 22, 1987, left the scene without its pilot and later crashed 300 miles into the Atlantic ocean. One theory subject to an official inquiry, according to Andrews, was that the Harrier had passed over the crop circle’s energy field and this triggered the ejection mechanism of the plane. Essentially, the pilot ejected through the canopy which caused his death and his body was found near three crop circles.
