Britain’s Race to Beat Russia to Alien Weapons Revealed in Secret Files

by Mark Branagan              July 1, 2018               (express.co.uk)

• According to a 1000-page dossier called “UAPs (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena) in the UK Air Defence Region” recently obtained by British X-Files expert Dr. David Clarke, the British government had been running two separate UFO desks. The public UFO desk was only set up to gather reports of sightings. The real work was being done by experts within Defence Intelligence.

• The dossier reveals that the RAF (Royal Air Force) was “particularly interested in any novel technologies which might be useful to their programmes”. Intelligence service chiefs urged the British government to be on the alert for sightings of strange foreign aircraft showing sinister signs of extraterrestrial tinkering. “Particular attention should be paid to any aircraft behaving like a UFO with the tell-tale signs of “high velocities, sharp manoeuvre, stationary ‘flight’, and few radar returns”.

• British spies planned to capture a flying saucer and use its alien technology to build superweapons, the secret files revealed. After the Cold War, there were fears that the Soviet Union or China were harvesting UFO secrets to develop superfast warplanes that could hover in mid-air and be invisible to radar.

• By 1997, the British government had determined that investigating things such as ‘alien abductions’ had become “a diversion from their main duties” and ordered the X-Files desks to be shut down. This 1000-page dossier was held back from the UFO records earmarked for transfer to the National Archives as part of the Open Government project from 2008 to 2013. But earlier this year, a complete set of redacted copies of the dossier was sent to Dr. Clarke ahead of its release to the National Archives. Says Dr. Clarke, “Even though they have been partly censored they can’t conceal the fact the UK military were interested in capturing UFOs.”

Even after the Cold War, there were fears that the Soviet Union or China had impounded a UFO and were harvesting its secrets to develop superfast warplanes that could hover in mid-air and be invisible to radar.

The public UFO desk was only set up to gather reports of sightings.

The real work was being done by experts from Defence Intelligence.

For half a century, spy bosses pored over the reports convinced they represented “as grave a threat to the Realm as the Soviet Union”.

But by 1997, the word had come down from Whitehall that the security services investigating “X-files stuff such as alien abductions” had become “a diversion from their main duties”.

A review was ordered to confirm the desk should be shut down, but also to determine whether anything had been learned over the years which could be useful to military.

The dossier reveals the RAF were “particularly interested in any novel technologies which might be useful to their programmes”.

“Propulsion, stealth, and any novel electromagnetic technologies are of particular interest,” the confidential memos added.

UFOs: When Governments Come Clean

by Nick Redfern                    May 27, 2018                   (mysteriousuniverse.org)

• A British Government file, declassified in the 1980’s, presents the following account: On Friday, September 19, 1952, Flight Lieutenant John Kilburn of the Royal Air Force in Yorkshire, along with four other aircrew personnel of No. 269 Squadron, witnessed a meteor gradually descending from the east at about 5000 feet. Suddenly a silver, saucer shaped object appeared in the sky at about ten to twenty thousand feet in altitude and five miles astern of the meteor, maintaining a similar course before slowly descending toward the meteor. “Suddenly it accelerated at an incredible speed towards the west turning onto a south-easterly heading before disappearing. All this occurred in a matter of fifteen to twenty seconds. The movements of the object were not identifiable with anything I have seen in the air and the rate of acceleration was unbelievable.”

• Another declassified British government file reveals that on March 26, 1957, Royal Air Force personnel, Church Lawford, reported seeing an object on radar instantly accelerate from a stationary position to a speed of 1400 mph.

• A week later on April 4, 1957, Royal Air Force personnel in Scotland picked up a squadron of huge, unknown aircraft over UK airspace. The Air Ministry “… deduced from these reports that altogether five objects were detected by the three radars. …[T]hey must have been either of considerable size or else constructed to be especially good reflectors. …Even if balloons had been in the area these would not account for the sudden change of direction and the movement at high speed against the prevailing wind. …It is considered unlikely that they were conventional aircraft, meteorological balloons or charged clouds.”

• When these military files were declassified in the late 1980s, more than a few U.K. ufologists were surprised by the government’s decision to release them, given the fact that their content verified that UFOs are real.

 

Just recently I wrote an article titled “A factual object of very unusual nature.” It served to demonstrate that, contrary to what some have said, the U.S. Freedom of Information Act has led to the release of genuinely intriguing UFO reports. It’s certainly not the case that all the “good” reports remain hidden behind closed doors. Yes, many probably do remain classified. But, that does not take away the fact that there are some fascinating, once-classified, files on UFOs in the public domain. Today, I’m focusing on some of the files that the British Government declassified back in the 1980s. They too demonstrate – to an amazing degree – that at times government agencies are prepared to reveal to us accounts of a very extraordinary type.

In September 1952, a notable UFO encounter occurred at Royal Air Force Topcliffe, a military base in Yorkshire, England. One of the witnesses, Flight Lieutenant John Kilburn, said of the incident: “Sir, I have the honor to report the following incident which I witnessed on Friday, 19th September, 1952. I was standing with four other aircrew personnel of No. 269 Squadron watching a Meteor fighter gradually descending. The Meteor was at approximately 5000 feet and approaching from the east. [Flight Officer R.N.] Paris suddenly noticed a white object in the sky at a height between ten and twenty thousand feet some five miles astern of the Meteor.”

“The object was silver in color and circular in shape, it appeared to be traveling at a much slower speed than the Meteor but was on a similar course. It maintained the slow forward speed for a few seconds before commencing to descend, swinging in a pendular motion during descent similar to a falling sycamore leaf…After a few seconds, the object stopped its pendulous motion and its descent and began to rotate about its own axis.

“Suddenly it accelerated at an incredible speed towards the west turning onto a south-easterly heading before disappearing. All this occurred in a matter of fifteen to twenty seconds. The movements of the object were not identifiable with anything I have seen in the air and the rate of acceleration was unbelievable.”

Former RAF officer recalls mindblowing UFO encounter in 1985

by Nirmal Narayanan           March 28, 2018             (ibtimes.sg)

• An unnamed former Royal Air Force officer who served from 1941 to 1946, and who also served in the UK Ministry of Defense from 1949 to 1977 has revealed that in 1985 he witnessed a silent, triangular UFO with an array of lights hovering over Borehamwood, just north of London, for more than three minutes. He reported the incident to the Ministry of Defense.

• Said the former RAF officer, “I rather doubt that I am easily deceived by aerial phenomena. My distinct impression is that I perceived an event for which no ready explanation is possible in wholly conventional terms.” He ruled out the possibility of the UFO being a conventional aircraft.

• Hopeful conspiracy theorists believe that 2018 will be the year of disclosure when governments and space agencies will reveal the existence of extra-terrestrials.

 

A former Royal Air Force (UK) officer who served the force from 1941 to 1946 has opened up about some UFO encounter he had in 1985. The man who wished to be unnamed, revealed that he had witnessed a triangular UFO hovering over Borehamwood in Britain. The man had also served in the Ministry of Defense from 1949 to 1977.

The man says that he does not have any explanation for this sighting despite tracking the skies professionally for the past three decades.

“I rather doubt that I am easily deceived by aerial phenomena. My distinct impression is that I perceived an event for which no ready explanation is possible in wholly conventional terms. Astronomical phenomena are, I think, ruled out by the extensive cloud cover as well as by the very regular, triangular formation of the three lights seen,” said the former RAF officer, Express.co.uk reports.

He even ruled out the possibility of this vehicle being an aircraft, as there is no known aircraft in the world with such a shape. Soon after the sighting, he reported the incident to the Ministry of Defense. According to the report, he saw an array of triangular lights heading southwest while he was in his friend’s garden. He told the MOD that the UFO produced no sound, and it hovered above the cloud for more than three minutes.
