Good afternoon Mr Pope (well, it is here in Blighty!).
I do not normally get involved in the UFO discussions as they descend into aliens for and against camps rather than a sensible discussion.
However, one case in particular piques my attention, although the details are hazy. From what i remember, it was around 1998 and occurred over the
East Coast of the UK (and i think therefore it happened during your tenure at the MoD). The report i read at the time (in either the Times or the
Telegraph) was a typically brusque affair of a couple of paragraphs but detailed Radar operators (both civilian and military from memory) tracking an
object the size the of a Second World War Battleship around the East Coast of the UK before it flew off at ridiculous speeds (i want to say estimated
at around Mach 20 but in all honesty i could have made that up!).
My question is do you remember this incident? Was it investigated? And if so, was it deemed to be explainable or one of the 5% that cannot be
Many thanks for taking the time to answer so many questions from so many people.
Seeing you response immediately below to a different member, i take it back as you clearly were not in the Department in 1998. Still, any other info
would be greatly appreciated.
