This is a very curious report and rather unique too. It's the first time it's been heard on the interwebz and only seems to have had a
mention once before by veteran Robert Barrow.
Back in the mid-1970s, a woman phoned the National UFO Reporting Center
with an extraordinary account involving a
UFO sighting over RAF Chicksands
, England in 1964 or ’65.
She describes how she was playing badminton with a friend and they were laughing and chatting. At some point, they could no longer hear anything and
their attention was then caught by an object hovering above the nearby oaks. She runs to tell her father who notifies the base security; he’s
apparently a senior NCO and attends to matters on the base - he’s gone all night.
Several years later, she asks him about this incident. He tells her that six other listening stations simultaneously experienced the same events and
he won’t go further than saying, ‘They weren’t ours.’
Naturally, I’ve spent some time trying to substantiate anything in the claim and haven’t uncovered much. At the same time, it’s important to
recognise that nothing leaves secure sites like these. As it stands, this is a single report that hasn’t been repeated anywhere else. In many ways,
it’s unique. She was correct about family quarters, there were tall trees and the secret nature of the base was likewise accurate. If there were any
UFO sightings at the other listening stations
they haven't seen the light of day...I
haven't found any reports yet.
The nearest relation to a claim like this could be the British Topcliffe and
UFO reports from 1952. Military witnesses reported seeing various objects including a disc-shaped craft. Those sightings
are considered by some to be amongst the best evidence for actual unknown craft in the skies.
In the event of this being a hoax, I wonder what would motivate her? Why choose a base in England and why opt for one whose purpose was little-known
and secret? If she did indeed spend part of her childhood there, would that render the broad fabric of the story true? Sounding sincere is no
guarantee of honesty or sanity, but she does sound at ease and not manic.
Anyway, give her a listen and see what you think about it. Right now, I can't say I'm certain one way or another although hoaxery is often a chief
suspect. Also apologies for the video...they are so annoying to make!
