As we were driving, all of a sudden we saw this green light in the sky ahead of us and it seemed to be an arcing light, but it was very sudden, totally unexpected, different to anything ever seen before. On arriving at Llandrillo many of the residents were outside in the streets with the consensus that something had crashed into the nearby mountain range.
Telex message to chief constable Gwynedd constabulary.
Explosion. PC receiving 999 calls of UFO. A witness who saw an object on the hillside reported: 'Saw bright red light, like coal fire red. Large perfect circle. Like a big bonfire. Could see lights above and to the right and white lights moving to bottom. Light changed colour to yellowish white and back again.'
'There's been a large explosion in the area and there is a large fire in the mountainside. I am speaking from ... and can see the fire where I am.'
I believe an object came down, it stayed for about an hour and a half and left of its own volition. It was hanging around before January 23rd and it was around for up to three weeks afterwards. The military was waiting for it that night. The only way they knew to be there was because it had been coming for a few days.
In a chilling echo of the infamous Roswell Incident in New Mexico, scores of troops were dispatched on a secret mission to recover the wreckage. One soldier, (under the pseudonym) James Prescott, was ordered to Llandderfel with four others and loaded two oblong boxes into their armoured truck. They then ferried the bodies back to the Chemical and Biological Defence Establishment at Porton Down near Salisbury, Wilts, under strict orders not to stop for anything
I was of the opinion that a UFO had come down, then I changed my mind after reading the research of Andy Roberts. However, I still get accounts now and again from locals and retired military people (all from RAF Valley, interestingly enough) of knowledge of bodies recovered and taken to Porton Down, Wiltshire. So, I'll be the first to admit that, today, it's one that continues to puzzle me. On the one hand, I am convinced that Andy has solved massive parts of the story. But, on the other hand, it's difficult to dismiss the testimony of the military people who have accounts to relate, and nothing to gain by spreading a false story. I think, though, that we have not heard the last of the case by any means!
During the late afternoon and early evening of 23rd January 1974 there was an exercise from Jurby Range on the Isle of Man. “ The exercise was called ‘Photoflash' and coastguards were advised to expect at least 10 aircraft taking part and at least 80 flashes around the Liverpool Bay area and the North Wales coastline
From my research, there were three separate craft that were flushed out of the ocean that night, military craft were involved and there was an engagement.
“I spoke to a fisherman who saw one come out near Puffin Island, his colleagues at the time told him to say nothing about it because it was considered bad luck, and he never spoke about it for years. I have correspondence with a group of men who told me they were moved on by military personnel on the roadside at Llandrillo where one of the craft came down. “They said they saw aliens getting out the craft who were helping two of their own who were injured. They were then loaded onto the back of a flat back truck and taken away. The epicentre of the earthquake was at Bala Lake. That is where one of the craft came down.
The other one smashed into the mountain side at Berwyn.
It was definitely a flying saucer. It was a pity I didn't have a camera because it was there for at least 10 minutes, just hovering. We were on the way down to play darts when something caught our eye in the south-east, so we stopped. 'It looked like a rugger (rugby) ball, but the ends of it were more pointy. When it took off, it just went like lightning on the same line as it hovered. I wrote it down in my diary. It was 6.45pm on the Friday night. If we were coming back from the pub, people would be saying, 'They've had one or two.' But we were going TO the pub.

firstly many thanks to the board moderators for accepting my membership of this excellent and thought provoking site. I was delighted to see this story on this board as im from wales, which is a country which has seen quite a lot of interesting ufo related events and encounters down the years. In addition to the fascinating berwyn mountain's incident there was also the famous welsh triangle of the 1970s of course, while board members may be unaware that another ufo is said to have crashed or landed in wales - this time in 1983 just outside the mid wales town of aberystwyth...more can be found on this here
while board members interested in this story might also be interested in a book that was recently published that looks at the history of ufos in wales.
the book is also available as a kindle on amazon

Great stuff Mirageman, well put together and nicely presented. Interesting to see whose name crops up, yet again, trying to claim "it's solved" when, a person from the locality is saying,
"Hang on a second, it wasn't quite that simple"
There's a definite pattern, in my opinion, beginning to emerge with certain cases where certain individuals are increasingly starting to look wholly untrustworthy when it comes to either, ignoring evidence or frankly, the deliberate misinterpretation of evidence.
....a private investigation done on behalf of the British Astronomical Society concluded however that the meteor may in fact have disintegrated over Manchester, and that its appearance was preceded at 8.32pm by an earth tremor in the Berwyn mountains with which it had no connection.
