On the night of December 24th 1980, my wife and i her brother and his wife where on our way for an evening celebration as it was my wife's birthday.
We had decided to go to a restaurant in the town of Henley-In-Arden Warwickshire. The time was around 8.00 pm as we set off along the A34 road out of
south Birmingham. This was a route that we had traveled on numerous occasions. As we cleared the city and drove into the countryside the buildings
where replaced by open farm fields. I was sitting in the rear of the car on the near side with my wife next to me. My brother-in-law was driving with
his wife next to him in the front passenger seat.
After traveling for about 10 minuites in the countryside i happen to glace at an open field on my left hand side. What i saw just transfixed me. In
the far side of the field ( i would estimate about 300 yards from my position) was what i could only describe as a "Craft" It was about 50 feet
across and about 9 feet high. It was cone shaped and was giving off what i would describe as a "mother of pearl" effect. It was changing colour from
red to blue to green to white. There are two things to bear in mind here:-
1) it was about 8.25 pm and in December the night is pitch dark so what i saw was very prominent against the blackness of the surroundings.
2) I had traveled this route on numerous occasions over many years and i knew from past experience that there are no buildings, outhouses etc in those
fields. That's why my attention was fixed as i did not expect anything to be there.
We continued on the journey toward Henley-In-Arden and no one had utter a word within the car during the period i had made the "sighting" we where
all quite. However about one and a half mile further along the road my brother-in-law suddenly said aloud "You will never guess what i think i saw in
one of the fields back there?" Within unison all three of us replied "a ufo". My brother-in-law said "I am going to stop, turn around and go back
and have a look" We all agreed. We returned to the location and.........nothing. It had gone.
Some years later i was watching on TV a documentary about the Rendlesham Forest UFO incident which occurred over Christmas 1980. When the UFO was
described by people who had witnessed it at Rendlesham, they where in fact describing the EXACT "Craft" that four other people had seen in
Warwickshire on December 24th 1980.
I hope my story may be of interest to some on here.
