MoD releases UFO files


The Ministry of Defence, under pressure from “enthusiasts”, has just released a bunch of data about UFO sightings between 1986 and 1992. The sightings are dotted across the UK, but include Belfast International Airport, Glenavy, Heathrow and Lydd in Kent.

One sighting was from the captain of an Altilia airliner, who saw a brown missile-shaped object shoot past overhead, who shouted “look out!”. Neither the Civil Aviation Authority, nor military investigations, could explain the event or what happened. If you’re interested in poring through the reports yourself to try to work it out, then they’ve been made available on a dedicated, and rather attractive, website from the National Archives.
