UK Releases UFO Files

Here’s something interesting. Because of a great many Freedom of Information requests to the United Kingdom to release cases of UFOs, 1,000 pages of formerly secret UFO documents were released this week by Britain’s National Archives.

Some of these cases were just misidentified commercial airplanes or others. But there are some truly interesting cases that defy Earthly explanation. Such as this case:

In 1984, at around 4 in the afternoon, “a bright circular object, flashing different colors” was seen by two experienced British air traffic controllers at a small airport.

“Everyone became aware that the object was unidentified,” the report stated, as reported by the Associated Press. “SATCO [codename for a controller with 14 years’ experience] reports that the object came in ‘at speed,’ made a touch and go on runway 27, then departed at ‘terrific speed’ in a ‘near vertical’ climb.”

It certainly doesn’t sound like the planet Venus or swamp gas too me.

For many years and even today, there are credible eyewitnesses to incredible aircraft that defy physics as we know it, with great speeds, maneuvers and designs that have not been accomplished by man as of yet.

While many laugh off UFO sightings as wild imaginations of drunken people or farmers, it can’t be denied that experienced pilots, air traffic controllers and other sober professionals have seen unknown aircraft for years.

So why isn’t there more of an interest? Why aren’t these stories by credible witnesses getting more serious media play? Surely a drunken celebrity flashing her private parts can’t be anywhere nearly as important as possible visits by aliens.

Maybe it’s time we start demanding more disclosures from our own American government about secret UFO files it has and start demanding a truthful and open investigation into the matter.
