‘Government Cover-Up Over UFOs’ to Avoid Mass Panic as the Public ‘Can’t Handle Coronavirus’

• The UK Government’s UFO unit closed in 2009 after more than 50 years, concluding that there was never evidence of a potential extraterrestrial threat. Existing records are now being slowly released. The Royal Air Force is set to declassify a cache of UFO sighting files into the public domain this month. A Ministry of Defence spokesman said: “It had been assessed that it would be better to publish these records, rather than continue sending documents to the National Archives, and so they are looking to put them onto a dedicated gov.uk web page.” (see previous ExoArticle here)

• Tony Buckingham, of the East Anglia UFO group, claims that notwithstanding its move toward more transparency, the UK government is still covering up the truth about the existence of UFOs and aliens due to the coronavirus pandemic. He says that disclosure of extraterrestrials during the coronavirus pandemic could very well tip Britons over the edge. Said Buckingham, “I don’t believe the power movers think we are ready for full disclosure yet, and seeing people fight over loo rolls I have to agree with that line of thought.”

• While he feels that UK authorities will be selective in what they choose to release, Buckingham will certainly look at them to see if there are any hidden bombshells that the government may have missed. “[I]f this is anything like the previous attempts to release documents they were quite a disappointment, as they were pretty much only the public’s own sightings they had reported,” said Buckingham. “Having said that, perhaps these reports will really be RAF sightings that have been logged by the military.”

• For many, evidence to suggest UFOs visit Earth is the greatest government secret of all time. Still, Buckingham thinks it won’t be long before the lid is completely blown off the UFO cover-up, with evidence to suggest an alien invasion is in the cards. “There is plenty of evidence and it is all over the world.” “US presidents, UK prime ministers including Margret Thatcher and Churchill, Soviet leaders, military leaders and many more have said we should be concerned,” said Buckingham, “and some say they ‘can’t tell the people’. “There has been a worldwide truth embargo on the topic and is now coming to an end, with soft programming for the past few decades, to where we are now with a majority acceptance of the phenomenon.”

• Former Chief of Defence, Admiral Lord Hill-Norton (1915-2004), had long cited a mass UFO/extraterrestrial cover-up. Said Hill-Norton, “I have frequently been asked why a person of my background, a former Chief of the Defence Staff, a former Chairman of the NATO Military Committee, why I think there is a cover-up of the facts about UFOs. Governments fear that if they did disclose those facts, people would panic. I don’t believe that at all. There is a serious possibility that we are being visited and have been visited for many years by people from outer space, from other civilizations. It behooves us to find out who they are, where they come from, and what they want.”

Tony Buckingham, of the East Anglia UFO (EAUFO) group, believes panic buying over toilet rolls in the wake of the global health crisis is proof the public can’t handle the truth.

It comes as the RAF is set to declassify a cache of UFO sighting files into the public domain this month – after the government faced calls for greater transparency.

But Tony, from Littleport in Cambridgeshire, says the release of the documents which could prove aliens exist coming at a time when whole countries are on a war footing with the coronavirus could tip humanity over the edge.

He said: “I don’t believe the power movers think we are ready for full disclosure yet, and seeing people fight over loo rolls I have to agree with that line of thought.”

But he reckons people are in for a let down if they think they’ll find a treasure trove of spacecraft sightings from top brass if the docs are in fact made public.

However he says he will be “taking a look” at the files to see if they contain bombshell discoveries.
He said: “I have been aware of the latest release for a while now and must say if this is anything like the previous attempts to release documents they were quite a disappointment, as they were pretty much only the public’s own sightings they had reported.

These Are the Strangest UFO Sightings in Scotland

Listen to “E120 10-9-19 These Are the Strangest UFO Sightings in Scotland” on Spreaker.

Article: September 26, 2019                   (glasgowsouthandeastwoodextra.co.uk)

• As a promotion for the launch of an ‘Alien Takeover’ themed event at the ‘Inflata Nation’ indoor inflatable theme park in Glasgow, Scotland, Inflata Nation founder Matt Ball compiled a list of Scotland’s strangest UFO sightings.

Prestwick Airport – In February 1999, traffic controllers at Glasgow’s Prestwick Airport tracked a fast-moving and unexplained UFO on the airport’s radar. RAF Air Defence staff launched an urgent investigation and impounded radar tapes, but concluded that ‘no additional evidence’ could be found to corroborate the UFO. In August 2003, an eyewitness reported a UFO harassing a plane near Prestwick Airport, describing it as a “fluorescent green UFO, saucer shaped. The pilot could not have missed it as it was level with the plane but say 50 feet away to its left as they passed each other. The UFO started to tilt slowly downwards.”

Glasgow City Centre – On May 11, 2019, witnesses saw an unusual light darting around the sky near the entrance to Glasgow Green park. It was reported as “[A] flying saucer in the middle of town. It just scuds around in the sky as cars pass by underneath, seemingly oblivious.”

The Falkirk Triangle – In northeastern Scotland, the Falkirk Triangle area stretches from the small town of Bonnybridge, east to Fife and then back west to Stirling. This area has been a hotbed of UFO activity going back to the 1990s. In 1992, James Walker was driving from Falkirk to Bonnybridge when he spotted a shining, star-shaped object which was hovering over the road, blocking his path. As Walker sat in his car waiting for it to pass, the object flew away at ‘an incredible speed’. Others have reported seeing a ‘howling’ UFO that buzzed their car, while a cigar-shaped craft was spotted landing on a golf course. In October 1997, Falkirk District Councillor William Buchanan wrote to the then Prime Minister Tony Blair appealing for an investigation into the phenomena. The Ministry of Defence responded that it was ‘satisfied there is no evidence that the UK’s airspace might have been compromised by hostile or unauthorised foreign military activity’.

Decky Hill – In November 1979, forestry worker, Robert Taylor, claimed to see something hovering above the woodland floor in Livingston, West Lothian. “It was a huge thing with a big round dome, a very dark grey color. It had a big flange going all the way around. I could see arms sticking out of this flange, with what I took to be blades on the top. As I stood here, two balls came out, two balls that I think would be about 3 feet in diameter with about six spikes. They came right up beside me and I remember feeling a tug at that time, a very powerful smell, a choking sort of smell and that was it.” Taylor lost consciousness and later woke up next to his truck. He arrived at home battered, bruised and with this clothes torn. The police recorded the matter as a common assault.

A70, South of Edinburgh – In August 1992, Garry Wood and his friend Colin Wright were driving along the A70 between Edinburgh and Tarbrax. When they arrived at their destination an hour and a half late, the pair had a hypnosis session to see what happened. They recalled a two-tiered disc-shaped object had dropped down in front of their van, and aliens then kidnapped them. Said Woods in 1996, “I saw three creatures coming towards my car. I felt intense pain, like an electric shock. Then I was in some room. I saw these things like wee men moving about, doing something to me. I could only see up. Then this 6-foot creature approached. It was white-grey in color with a large head and dark eyes with a long, slender neck, very slim shoulders and waist. There were either ribs or folds of skin on its body. The arms were like ours, but there were four very long fingers.” The incident was investigated by the Ministry of Defence.

 

All eyes were on Area 51 last weekend, the United States Air Force military testing ground located in the Nevada desert.
Conspiracy theorists say the site is home to wreckage from downed alien spaceships – with a plan to ‘storm’ the military base attracting throngs of visitors to the area.

But you don’t need to visit Area 51 to find UFO sightings – Scotland is a hotbed of them.

And when it comes to high strangeness, these encounters give any Nessie sighting a run for its money.

The list has been compiled by top attraction Inflata Nation in Kinning Park, as they prepare to launch an ‘Alien Takeover’ themed event at their indoor inflatable theme park during the October half term.

Inflata Nation founder, Matt Ball says: “When you think of strange sightings in Scotland, you immediately think of Loch Ness.

“And the recent ‘Storm’ Loch Ness monster hunt – another Facebook event similar to ‘Storm Area 51’ – proves how popular that myth still is.

“But if you really want to see something odd, you should be looking at Scotland’s skies, not its bodies of water…”

Prestwick Airport

Glasgow Prestwick Airport isn’t just popular with tourists heading to sunnier climes – it’s also a jumping-off point for UFOs, reports have revealed.

In 2010, the MoD released a series of files which documented a strange encounter at the airport in February 1999. The traffic controller there tracked a fast-moving and unexplained UFO on the airport radar, sparking a flurry of activity.

The RAF air defence staff launched an urgent investigation and impounded radar tapes. But the report concluded that ‘no additional evidence’ could be found to corroborate the so-called ‘Prestwick incident’.

Near Miss Investigations Prompt Renowned ‘X Files’ Investigator to Speak Out

Listen to “E105 9-24-19 Near Miss Investigations Prompt Renowned ‘X Files’ Investigator to Speak Out” on Spreaker.
Article by Joanna Morris                       September 9, 2019                    (thenorthernecho.co.uk)

• Included in a list of aviation near-misses reported to the UK Airprox Board is a UFO seen by a pilot cruising above Barnard Castle in February 2017. According to the pilot, the UFO was flying “almost directly overhead (of) the aircraft in the opposite direction” as the plane traveled at an altitude approaching 18,000 ft. The UFO passed at high speed 200 ft above the aircraft, and remained in view for just two seconds.

• The Airprox report reflects a situation in which the distance between an aircraft and the object could have compromised the safety of the aircraft. There were 36 such reports involving unknown objects in UK airspace investigated by the Board between 2017 and 2019, according to analysis by Newsquest’s Data Investigations Unit. The Civil Aviation Authority said it was likely that most reports involved drones, model aircraft or balloons.

• The pilot in the Barnard Castle case initially believed the moving object could have been a military jet or potentially a drone. However, many reports reviewed by the board involved sightings of unknown objects at thousands of feet off the ground, at heights above drone capability.

• Nick Pope, who investigated UFO sightings for the Ministry of Defence (MoD), said there were many incidents that deserved more interrogation. Said Pope, “[M]any reports being attributed to drone activity should more properly be characterized as ‘unknown objects’.” We’re “being too quick to blame drones”.

• Pope continued, “The situation has been under-resourced since the 2009 termination of the MoD’s UFO program, and while I’m aware that the MoD continues to study such matters, more should be done.”

• UFO researcher Glen Richardson said he receives multiple reports a year relating to potential alien activity in the North-East, including claims of abduction. Richardson thinks the UK authorities could be working covertly to investigate such cases, and urged them to be more transparent about their findings.

• Dr David Clarke with the Centre for Contemporary Legend at Sheffield Hallam University said, “Things that are unexplained are likely to be natural phenomenon – not aliens from other planets. That’s not to say those reports are of no interest.”

• A Ministry of Defence spokesman said that with the millions of flights in UK airspace each year, “[t]he low number of these incidents highlight the professionalism of commercial, military and private aviators.”

 

A REAL-LIFE X Files investigator has joined a UFO researcher from the North-East in calling for more to be done to uncover the truth behind mysterious objects spotted in the skies.

A unidentified flying object seen by a pilot cruising above Barnard Castle is included in a list of near-misses reported to the organisation responsible for monitoring close calls that could compromise the safety of aircraft in flight.

In February 2017, the moving object caught the captain’s attention, flying “almost directly overhead the aircraft in the opposite direction” as the plane travelled at an altitude approaching 18,000ft.

According to data from the UK Airprox Board, the angular and fast-moving entity passed at high speed and remained in view for just two seconds, approximately 200ft above the aircraft.
