I have always wanted to share this on ATS, but as I have seen so many similar experiences just be completely shut down rather than nicely shared and
talked about, I never really got round to it. However, I have decided that regardless, I want to share my experience. Isn't that part of what ATS is
Okay so firstly some background info. I live in the UK, in the County of Essex, and the town of Benfleet. 13.4 miles east of my home, is the
Shoeburyness MOD base which is co-run by a company called Qinetiq.
As you can see, this base is rather ordinary. Nothing special. It has some bombs go off and what not, but as far as I can see, nothing interesting
goes on there.
Also, for those looking on a map, Southend Airport is not to far away from me either! I do see the planes coming in for landing around about 1-2 miles
South of my house, and occasionally planes bank around my house to get onto the landing flight path. The noise is pretty minimal and does not really
pose any "Noise pollution" to my area.
Now, I have always been the kind of guy who "Believes it when he see's it", but I do not claim people to be liars. I never rule anything out, but
my decision is made when I see something. I have never seen a secret project, a UFO or anything out of the ordinary so I am yet to have the experience
of a life-time. However, back in around January, I think this may have changed.
I was out in my garden around mid-night having a smoke (Incase people wonder why I stand in my garden in the middle of the night), just pottering
around and well.... Smoking. I heard a noise I thought was a plane so I look up to see if I can spot it. Nothing. I assumed it was banking somewhere
or just was out my view. However this noise, it kept getting louder and louder, and really really deep in frequency. I instantly thought it was a
plane coming to crash, but there was no sudden boom or silence. This noise just kept coming. It got to a point where I was about to cover my ears and
go inside, but I really wanted to know what this thing was. It wasn't until I stopped and thought about it, that I realised this thing was not a
plane! I finally clocked on that this noise was something else, and whatever it was, it was right above my house and the surrounding areas. It didn't
move fast, but I came to realise this thing was passing from East to West. I was in awe of this sound. It slowly moved West and the sound slowly went
away. But I am telling you, whatever this thing was. IT WAS HUGE!
Now, I am not saying this is aliens or anything. But I simply just couldn't and still haven't worked out what this thing /noise was!!!.
I mentioned the base and airport earlier so you can help me in trying to figure this out. This was not a plane, I know what a plane sounds likes and
trust me. This was not a plane!!
So, with that in mind... What was this thing?
