Could the Royal Air Force have believed UFOs were actually Alien tourists out on a joyride? Respected Paranormal Investigator David Clarke is coming out with a book that suggests just that. The book will be detailing the Ministry of Defence’s Top Secret fourteen-year active investigation into 1,200 UFO and paranormal reports in the United Kingdom between 1996 and 2000. The project was eventually compiled into a 400 page document, which was released to the public due to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request by Dr. David Clark. The reports covered everything reported from Air Traffic Controllers, who are trained to be able to keep photographic memories of what they see on the runway every day, to the average Joe walking down the street spotting a strange light in the sky.
As the book reveals, the reports themselves, appear to be as diverse as the reporters. While many of the sightings are well documented and credible, complete with drawings and even photographs, others can border on strange and even at times a bit silly. One sighting, in particular, was of a knobby kneed entity complete with legs and arms, and a body and head shaped like a banana. Beneath this report the words, “Shaped like a banana, maybe blue,” accentuate the comical appearance of the drawing. For the most part, however, these articles are fairly credible and one would be remiss to judge it by the most fantastic of the reports. The files were collected for the most part by a branch called DI-55, which is part of the Defence Intelligence staff. Of course, DI-55’s goals were not solely to discover the presence of extraterrestrials, but also to document all sightings in the sky in case a new type of spy craft was identified. Needless to say, similarities in sightings was of note to the DI-55 personnel.
Geoff Hoon, who oversaw the report, stated, “That (UFOs) exist is indisputable. Credited with the ability to hover, land, take-off, accelerate to exceptional velocities and vanish, they can reportedly alter their direction of flight suddenly and clearly can exhibit aerodynamic characteristics well beyond those of any known aircraft of missile , either manned or unmanned.” The report went on to say that despite this, there was no evidence to suggest that UFOs were a threat to national security. As such, the project was scrapped in 2000.
Dr. Clarke’s book, titled, “The UFO Files,” will cover the Condign project as well as 100 years worth of UFO documentation from other sources. It reveals that many top officials in the Royal Air-force considered UFOs to be potential alien tourists. Perhaps that means certain UFO hot-spots are actually tourist traps.
