Well, surprise, surprise the story of two separate UK airline pilots sighting multiple UFO's has conflicting reports and the story is only a few days old!!
The Guernsey Star originally reported that there was NO radar signal and even quoted the air traffic controller as saying, “If the object was stationary, our equipment would not have picked it up because the radar would have screened it out.”
The term RADAR was coined in 1941 as an acronym for
Radio Detection and Ranging.
Radar is a system that uses electromagnetic waves to identify the range, altitude, direction, or speed of both moving and fixed objects such as aircraft, ships, motor vehicles, weather formations, and terrain, so if the UFO wasn't moving the signature surely would still be visible. And as for the radar equipment, “Screening it out” I find it impossible to believe that air traffic control radar equipment would screen out possible adverse weather conditions as well as possible collision detection with the objects in question which were reportedly up to a mile long! !
Radar works in principle by a transmitter which emits radio waves, which are then reflected by the target and detected by a receiver, typically in the same location as the transmitter. Although the radio signal returned is usually very weak, radio signals can easily be amplified, thus enabling radar to detect objects at ranges where other emissions, such as sound or visible light, would be too weak to detect.
It's only been a few months since the sighting at the O'Hare airport caused quite a stir as it was originally denied by the F.A.A. despite being seen by several independent witnesses including a lot of the nervous airport staff. As the O'Hare UFO shot into the sky it actually displaced heavy cloud cover by creating a hole in the cloud which took quite some time to close back up.
This case is already becoming bigger than this sighting as it transpires that nearly all of the passengers on the flights also seen the UFO. So that's two experienced airline pilots and most of their civilian passengers.
I have also included an interview which the pilot gave in which he says he was quite scared by the experience as well as stating that he has been told that the objects DEFINITELY showed up on radar. The fact that the UFOs could be seen from approximately 40 miles away gives some indication as to the colossal size of the crafts which the pilot still maintains could easily be over a mile in length.
Even former investigator of UFOs for the Ministry of Defence, Nick Pope has said, "While no witnesses are infallible, pilots are trained observers and less likely than most people to misidentify something mundane.”
Also, on The Professional Pilots Rumour Network (PPRuNe) Forums a brand new member signed up and instantly posted a very poor, obviously photoshopped image of a hazy nondescript object which looked nothing like the pilots reports, and also due to the location of the actual sighting was (in my opinion) an impossibility that it was the UFO in question!! The poster claimed it was floating around various emails and whether the poster was just genuinely misinformed, a glory seeker or part of a, “Greater conspiracy” is presently unknown.
And on the back of all of this confusion the current spokesperson for the UK Ministry of Defence said that they would not be investigating this incident adding that while it does monitor air space for any unusual foreign objects which might pose a threat, they would not be carrying out an investigation in this instance?!!?
British military air space starts 40 miles north of Guernsey and French military air space starts 20 miles west of Guernsey and occupies an area of approximately 150 square miles.
So two UFO's which are possibly over one mile in length are reported by two reliable airline pilots and are corroborated by multiple witnesses, then couple this with the fact that they are on the borders of TWO secure no-fly testing areas and the Ministry Of Defence WILL NOT BE INVESTIGATING.
The implications are truly staggering.
- Do they already know something?
- Will they be investigating privately?
- Do they not want to know?
- Does anybody anywhere care??
Another well documented case involving a civilian flight happened back in 1978 in Australia , on Saturday October 21, 1978, a 20 year old Australian pilot, Frederick Valentich, took off from Moorabbin Airport in Melbourne .
He later contacted air traffic control stating that he had sighted a UFO. As he became increasingly panicked at the proximity of the UFO all communication was lost.
FrederickValentich was never seen or heard from again!!
This has became one of the most puzzling and disturbing cases in the history of Ufology. To this day, the Valentich disappearance remains as puzzling now as it was over 25 years ago.
Bearing this in mind it would appear that the UK Ministry Of Defence are displaying negligence of an almost criminal nature. If this UFO sighting doesn't warrant a full investigation, then what on earth (pun intended) does?!?
Could this be the beginning of, “Full Disclosure?”
These revelations come on the back of a discovery that there is another close (close in cosmic terms) planet which is capable of supporting life, as well as the French releasing their UFO files to the public via the internet (which crashed their servers for the first couple of days such was the public interest).
Also just recently we have also learned that the very same Ministry Of Defence which will not be investigating this case have decided to release 24 UFO files which contain some 7,000 reports plus analysis and correspondence. The archive also contains all 3,000 UFO reports received by MoD between 1987 and 1997. But due to the size of the task in hand it may take quite some time before they are available online.
But hey, it's already been nearly ten years since they decided to release them and it's already been a rollercoaster ride. What with the files been recovered from a basement laden with asbestos and which were previously thought to be unrecoverable and at a reported cost of around £3 million of public funds it seems that the government is definitely gearing up for something.
It would also appear that the logic, flawed thinking and clandestine inner workings of the, “People in the know” could prove to be a bigger mystery than the UFO phenomenon itself!!
Who knows, fingers crossed we may yet see full disclosure in our lifetime………….
