Huge Spaceplane Sighted Over Ireland in 2004

A huge shuttle type spaceplane was sighted over Ireland on April 27th, 2004 by Miles Johnston, a Dublin Tower Rigger at 8:30pm.

It was traveling west to east and took 8 seconds to travel from directly overhead to where it disappeared in the evening sky above greater Belfast, Ireland.

Miles wrote me about a month later and enclosed this drawing and map.

I recently wrote to Miles and asked permission to post this information on ATS and he said by all means. He also said it was ok to give his name.

The only comment I have other than there is no doubt in my mind that this is a space shuttle operated by the U.S. is that it may be constructed out of the new ceramic materials that we have been hearing about. And when I say ‘new’ ceramic materials, they are about 20 years old and can withstand extremely high temperatures. Also, it was probably landing at Macrahanish (about 60 miles north of this sighting.)

Here is Miles drawing. (It was in pencil so I darkened the lines with a black felt tip pen.) Below that his letter and below that the map.

May 24, 2004

Hi John,

I had hoped to have a computer version of this but the pencil line drawing is what I have.

I hope it has enough detail, if not the drawing, the text notes that come with it.

The map is approximate. It could be a few degrees off either way, but the basic direction from west to east, disappearing fro the low sun angle, over the high sky above Belfast is right.

We viewed from 900 feet above sea level, on a high hill at Lough More Co. Monaghan, while servicing my 160 foot pirate radio tower (We joke and call it Alien Mountain, as we have a few odd things go on up here.) So we were looking up at the time.

At 8:30pm on Tuesday April 27th, 2004. The sun was still above the horizon at that time of year, but quite low, and setting more north west than due straight west. The color of the main underbelly was blued by the atmosphere, which indicates its height was high. It was dull grey, gun grey. Some vestigel patterning/vehicle construction marks, gave me the impression to me it was man-made advanced shuttle.

The twin tails appeared very small from the angle of view, but appeared to be just above the dark black rectangular engine bay. It’s possible there were no tails, that this white upper section was the rear of the main upper body.

There were no engines visible, no nozzles. Just a jet black rectangular engine or vent port. Na vapor trail was visible at all.

The white nose implies it does not have a re-entry heating problem that the shuttle has.

The front of the wings looked curved and protected in some way. Not totally dissimilar to a shuttle wing. But much thicker, and extending almost to the very nose.

No flaps or ailerons sections were noticed. I did not have enough time to observe this. After 5 seconds went by I went to get my camera, just 2 feet away, but it was gone by then over greater Belfast.

That’s about it. It really moved through the air effortlessly. It was about the size of a British %p. or U.S. penny, at arms length. (My arm is about 30” from finger to neck.)

I have put a typical passenger jet and its vapor trail in the same scale as we saw this. We had scattered cloud, and this was ell above the clouds, in a band of clear dark blue sky, directly above us.

It was very high from us. Even if it was 10,000 ft. it would be 5 or 10 times bigger than a 747. As I suggest, it was far higher. It really is an enormous craft.

I hope that this is of value. It sure as hell tells me they (us) are flying a very heavy duty off planet bound vehicle that means business

Perhaps an Alternative 3 vehicle?

I want to get ahold of some of this ceramic material.
I need about 5 LBS.............
I have asked around at some ceramic shops to no avail and they try and sell me porsaline clay. Writing to NASA has been a bust...........

John do you have any suggestions of where I might get my hands on 5 LBS of this clay? I am a clay sculptress and I want to try some things with this new ceramic stuff.

I would write to:

The Skunkworks
Lockheed Martin Corporation
Palmdale, California

Tell them what you are looking for and how much you need and be sure and get a price before they ship.

Be sure and tell them that John Lear sent you. You'll get the special treatment.

Could this be the X33 in action? Twin tails, rectangular engine nozzle, wedge shape, the similarities are uncanny!

Except that the X-33 isn't 5x the size of a 747. A 747 has a length of about 70 meters and a wingspan of aobut 60, so this craft could have been 350 meters long and potentially 300 meters wide. That is one large craft. You can only imagine what type of inventory you would be able to transport to and from the moon in a craft the size of that.

A shuttle would be man-rated for space, meaning that it travels at speeds and G's to not kill people. You wouldn't be using a man-rated spacecraft to bring back resources or hardware but transport astronauts/workers to and from any sort of base we might have up there.

Maybe this one?

If it was so large, why only one sighting? By the way, the X-33 was supposedly never built, therefore it aint 5 times the size of anything. I think you may be basing your figures on boeings specs that were released to the PUBLIC.
Maybe a scaled up version? It's a bit suss that millions and millions of dollars were spent on the X-33 and all they have is a few CGI pictures of it! How do you explain design similarities? Rectangular exhaust, dual tail fin, etc? Also why do the photos of the X-33 show shuttle type tiles on it? You mean to say we have nothing better 30 years later? I thought the tiles were a major reason the shuttle was being phased out. Also, when did anyone see the x33 to compare it to a 747? Also, the craft spotted was not white, it may have appeared to be bigger but was actually lower. Also, this one time, at band camp......

Sure reminds me of that excellent pic posted by DuncanIdahoGholem of the X-33. Here's a couple of other possible canidates.

Rectangular exhaust nozzle. Giveaway if you ask me. John, I just started a new thread based on the Learjet conversion to spaceplane. It's in space exploration. I really look forward to your input. Carnival, thanks, i looked at all those but could't spot the rectangular exhaust.

There maybe the object was Aurora Military Plane. As well as the picture of it looks like the same spacecraft I had seen on a History Channel program.

Hi, By its speed when it past over my megawatt FM station, it was over Belfast in 8 seconds.(that is 50 miles away from where we were. Damn it I had a power winding Canon with a zoom lens, but it was just too fast.)
The background to my Pirate station 200yards from the UK border, was Alien Contact.(in simple terms)We ran a million watts of unlicensed FM power into Belfast , and our Station manager got abducted FOUR times, only a mile from the transmitter site (inside the North, at a sacred healing well called St Patrick's Chair and Well)

We used sit up there in the "Alien Mountain" transmitter site, and wish to see a god dam mother ship...or better
We had loads of really weird things happen at the transmitter, like the whole dimensional set up of site would change.. just as in the old KISS FM days in 88.
The reason why we called the station ENERGY 106.6 was, due to the feeling of immense powerful positive energy at the site.
Even the DJs/Station Manager's DOG got abducted!
These were little guys a bit like Greys, except with cloaks on.

Normally we had orbs.
The worst things were the Black Energy beings.. like giant octopuses and Spiders / Very nasty stuff... We new we were being attacked from day one, so we went to appropriate efforts to protect the transmissions from these nasties hijacking the stations output, as they do on most other stations.
That's why we had such an effect.

The structure of this vehicle was definately of a what you would expect of a very well financed very advanced Shuttle. There is no doubt this was coming on approach to a landing site.
John mentions Machrihanish, which has many strange stories... not least the loss of most of the top military and civilian intell who knew what was what about Ulster's "issues"... all taken out in one chopper "crash".

If it did land there, it must have entered a invisibility portal. This might sound off the wall, but there have been reports and VIDEO of items entering mountains in South Wales, and near Las Vegas,.. i think the Red Rock area. Objects travelling at about 10,000mph.... straight into a cliff face.

The Welsh stuff is the book, "the Welsh Triangle"... a book which some say, rattled a few cages in Whitehall.

If this did not land at the Scottish peninsula, where the base is, it would have been over northern Russia in about another 2 minutes.

I have heard of bases up there in Norway... involved cloned man made Aliens... but they have trouble walking, and mind control "Trip Seats"... all a bit like the Barry King stuff, in Peasemore, and the Montauk stuff.

Its probable there is a big base up there... possibly in plane sight, lie a major civilian airport... where they outposts, with access to underground facilities with the EBEs..

So, it was no surprise,.. rather more a signature from someone we had done our job...

Anyway, that craft was big, and had a large solid panelled dark blue (it was not meant to be seen) look about it.
The only reason we saw it, was the very lo sun angle, and the fact we were looking up at my tower, with my Tower rigger guys. Both of us the ground, the other up the tower.

Are there any Irish Air Corps base near this location?

posted on Jun, 4 2007 @ 09:54 AM
What a story.

Would it be fair to assume that under the given theory (secret spaceflight shuttles) this flightpath is most likely used on a regular basis? So forth i guess a second sighting is not impossible.

Interesting story.

Added by edit : My poor eyesight and loss of memory made me ask for coordinates when there is a perfectly good map posted above

Maybe the Irish have a secret space program too and the Irish jokes are a disinformation exercise
Any chance it could be British? It would not surprise me if they had some really high tech stuff that nobody knows about, Uncle Sam may have let them peruse the specs for the X-33 after NASA pulled the pin. A lot of money had already been spent so there's a few dollars saved. Anyone remember Moon Raker?

Hey Megawatts,

Are you the mad Irishman (only joking - you may not be Irish) I had several/many beers with at Laughlin earlier this year ?

You may recall my strange Brummie accent whilst slowly (... no, rapidly ) getting p****d with yourself, Jim Marrs and Larry Warren et al ?

Did you ever pull that Germanic bird ( the one that was/is writing a book) after all the effort you put in?

Anyways, in all seriousness, you never mentioned this bloody great silent triangular shaped craft to me and I thought we were mates!!

When is the next Irish UFO conference to be sure? I'll come over to the Emerald Isle if you let me know. I want to know more. Is it the same type of triangular shaped craft that glided silently over RAF Cosford some time back?



PS I am assuming you are Miles ..... if not then then i'm on my way to see the men in white coats.

Theres a very long runway at Iqaluit across the atlantic in northern canada....its the third longest i believe in N America...Maybe theres a secret underground base there?Iqaluit is situated on baffin Island...
The runway is an old SAC base....

Hi Pippadee... Yeap its me... The Pirate Radio Border Blaster that blew the creaps out of Belfast, with over 1million watts of Pirate FM pure and sweet, for almost two decades on and off.

As far as the plane is concerned, people should know of the massive mothership craft that flew around and in and out of the Atlantic near South West Ireland, in the 90s. These were massive, and they came over land, with people being abducted. Ships were seen coming to to lay down the smaller craft to do the abductions, and then to return, to do the pick up.
Various Intelligence agencies set up quasi civilian encounter groups to do ESP tests with the craft. It even reached the level of the Irish Tourist board.

Massive Triangular craft were pursued by the French Air-force over Ireland.
One entire village went missing.. only to be returned.

A Known location of a possible undersea "Alien" base, is south of Belfast, north of Dundalk, off the coast at the Mourne Mountains. A sighting in Carlingford Lough was important enough for the witness to be vsisited by US Intell, and have his film taken from him by "polite force". Another witness, that I personally investiagted was visited by British and US intell... and warned off speaking to mE..
"as I am a very Dangerous man"... wow.. everyone shudder!

The Problem about the entire area, from the RAF Machrihannish base in the Scottish Peninsula north east of Belfast, is, according Barry King, it has one long huge tunnel.
So that could be desribed as the north eastern corner, and Carlingford the south eastern corner.

OF:- zone which, when you fly into Belfast from London., its possible to detect a zone of "differential dimensional integrity". If you take the fast jet ferry out of Belfast you can detect the same thing.
In essence someone is operating a massive "tesla Sheild" or Reality shield of some kind.
Perhaps they have a big fat invisiiblity zone over the Scottish base, which would allow sucha massive craft to simply come in and land, and no one be the wiser.

Of course, it may just have flown on, to a base in northern Europe, near Finland / or Russia. Or skipped on through the atmosphere and moved on.

There are rumours of an island off the south west coast of Cork. Never given back to the Irish, after partition. Its on no map, and you wont see it. Rumours are that fishermen known of a place not to go to.
It would be the place where all those undersea UFOs came from ..perhaps.

What is interesting, that on the single occasion I took the long slow Ferry from south Wales to Cork... by "coincidence" I should see on the walls, toilet graffiti that said "Cork Harbour holds the secret to the entire UFO subject"

So if we consider the undersea CORK bases.. (portal from Atlantis??), the zones in the north Irish Sea, and the Welsh Triangle (south Irish Sea), The Cork / South West Ireland Atlantic Ocean sightings, The massive UFO display set up for British Psi Spies off the Sligo Coast, I would say that Ireland is one of the best concealed UFO hot spots in the planet.

Well I don't know why your station would be attracting anything? I live very close to a set of large TV and FM antennas two as tall as the Empire state building in NewYork and the only thing they attract is lightning. I saw a single bolt come down to form two and hit the two at the same time. It was really cool and would have made for a great picture.

i dont know if this story is related but as soon as i read this thread, it reminded me about a story a work mate told me.

he said, him and a good mate was night fishing in 2004, the sky was clear with stars shining, all of a sudden both of them heard (as he told me) a "bubbling sound as if the lake was boiling" and a huge black shape which blacked out the sky, drifted directly over them and didnt make any noise apart from "the lake bubbling". as soon as it passed over their heads "the bubbling" stopped.

i personally believe him because he is a very religious guy who does not believe in aliens and only told me his story because i had told him about a ghostly experience i once had. he thought after hearing my story his didnt seem so bad
and i am the only person he has ever told it too.

i do know he told me this happened in 2004 but he didnt say what month, he did tell me where they were fishing but i honestly cant remember the lake he said.
i have not seen him for a long while, we dont work together anymore but if it worth anything too anybody, i will chase him down and find out what lake he was fishing and what month

i should have also said, i live between lough neagh and armagh and i am guessing my mate was fishing very close or even in lough neagh
