Britain Opens Up Secret UFO Files




LONDON The men were air traffic controllers. Experienced, calm professionals. Nobody was drinking.

What they saw has never been explained. And they were so worried about losing their jobs that they demanded their names be kept off the official reports.

No one, they knew, would believe their claim that an unidentified flying object landed at the airfield they were overseeing in the east of England, touched down briefly, then took off again at tremendous speed.

But that's what they reported happening at four in the afternoon on April 19, 1984, at an unspecified small airport near the eastern coast of England.

Their "Report of Unusual Aerial Phenomenon" is one of more than 1,000 pages of formerly secret UFO documents released Wednesday by Britain's National Archives.

The air traffic controllers, each with more than eight years on the job, describe how they were helping guide a small plane to a safe landing on runway 22 when they were distracted by a brightly lit object approaching a different runway without clearance.

"Everyone became aware that the object was unidentified," the report on the incident said. "SATCO [codename for a controller with 14 years' experience] reports that the object came in 'at speed,' made a touch and go on runway 27, then departed at 'terrific speed' in a 'near vertical' climb."

The incident is one of the more credible in the newly public files because it was reported by air traffic controllers, said David Clarke, a UFO expert who has worked with the National Archives on the document release.

"They were absolutely astonished," he said. "It was a bright, circular object, flashing different colors, and after it touched down it disappeared at fantastic speed. The report comes from very qualified people, and it's one of the few that remained unexplained."

More?

I've heard this account before and yes,it's one of the most credible.We don't know what we don't know..

I've never believed in UFOs...

The term UFO - Unidentified Flying Object...Can inly be used by those who CAN'T actually identify it...

But if someone CAN identify it...whether or not it's public...automatically discounts the term...

If 75 million people can't identify it...but 1 can...then it ain't a UFO...

Unidentified in this case is used as an adjective, to mean nameless or not publicly known. If it cannot be identified as something that we have assigned a name to (i.e. jet, weather balloon, etc.), it is indeed an Unidentified Flying Object.

Not sure how I feel about UFOs (have enough to think about with the stuff that happens on this planet), but it is hard for me to believe that there are no other life forms in the galaxy. Whether or not they can make it here,
