RAF told to shoot down UFOs – ex MoD employee spills the space beans


A gentleman who used to work for the Ministry of Defence has said that the RAF has been trying, unsuccessfully, to shoot down UFOs for years.

Nick Pope, who worked on the MoD’s UFO desk for three years, told the Sun:

“We know of cases where the order has been given to shoot down – with little effect to the UFO.”

According to Pope, pilots only open fire if they consider the UFO to be a threat to UK airspace…

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.

I feel rather sorry for the sixth man to walk on the moon aka Dr Edgar Micthell. Here he is, on radio, telling the world exactly what they want to hear and I’m about to sit and just take the piss. I can’t help it, but I promise to be gentle Dr M, I promise.

Wingless electromagnetic air vehicle (UFO! UFO! UFO!) set to take off this year


Technically, that flying saucer to the left there is known as a wingless electromagnetic air vehicle, or WEAV for short. We’ll just scream “UFO!” and run from it in terror, though, if that’s OK.

It’s powered by “magnetohydrodynamics” – a way of propelling vehicles by ionising air with an electrical current then shooting it out at great speed. The thing also spins, to help keep it stable. It is, basically, your archetypal flying saucer.
