.....The team then received orders to proceed with speed towards North Wales, but were halted on the outskirts of the English city of Chester, in readiness for a military exercise they were told was about to take place in the area. Not long after, the orders changed yet again: make your way to the town of Llangollen, North-East Wales. On arrival at Llangollen, recalled Prescott, the unit noticed a great deal of ground-based activity in the area. In addition, military aircraft were soaring across the darkened, mountainous Welsh skies.

There may be some new documents in the UFO files being released, but I doubt they'll add much to the story.
The documents I've seen suggest the whole Berwyn Mountain UFO crash was a combination of meteors/fireballs, a small earthquake, a search and rescue operation launched because of calls suggesting an aircraft had crashed, rumour, hysteria and the overactive imagination of certain UFO enthusiasts.

What are the chances that this novel, Operation Thunder Child is based somewhat, if not entirely, upon the main topic of this thread?
Part one of a two book series that deals with the concept of the UK taking EBE's to Porton Down after a UFO Crashes and was written by Nick Pope.
According to him, it is the only Sci-fi novel that has ever needed government clearance before publishing.

I;ve gone through the documentary and I can say it brings really nothing, I don't see any piece of evidence here at all, no wonder it is so worldly unknown case.
It fails to mention the more speculative theories but gives a good general idea of the area with some archive footage as well.

Very interesting topic a story from a Reginald DePinter who's grandfather was an eye witness
This must be the same story that was told over and over again by my grandparents.
"Apparently some time in January of 1974, my uncle, who was the choir master in the local church had just locked the church doors having completed a choir practice. He and my uncle’s friend Devon were walking home along the road when they felt the ground shaking under them. They laughed but were a little frightened by the earthquake then suddenly they saw bright lights in the sky followed by a terribly loud bang. They were convinced they had just witnessed an aircraft crash and because the crash scene was only a short distance away, they ran quickly to the spot. They said what they saw looked like plane wreckage but the craft was obviously circular in shape because the ground was still ablaze in a round shape. Then they spotted two very small dark figures speedily rushing away to disappear into the adjoining forest. They hurried home and phoned the local police who came promptly and listened to their account of what they witnessed. This was followed by Royal Air Force investigators who seemed more interested in the small runaways from the crash than they were with anything else. Both my uncle Neville and his pal Devon swore by what they saw, but the RAF boys seemed very incredulous and even though both of them were quizzed again and again, several times, nobody in authority really believed their story. However, to their dying days, both men stuck by what they knew they observed and their story never wavered"
......Liverpool Daily Post 25 Jan 1974 p1). It was now further suggested that many people, especially in the Isle of Man, had actually seen an RAF photo-flash night bombing exercise. It was also noted 4 that many of the light phenomena were reported after the tremor (Liverpool Daily Post 25 Jan 1974 p1).
