In this section, I am going to cover the
use of E.M. technology, the apparent silence of the M.O.D, with
regard to the UFO subject in general, as well as triangle
sighting within a, fifty mile radius of the Sheffield incident.
There has been and still is large amounts of triangle activity
right across the North of England, and the rest of the UK, as
well as from all areas of the planet.
It would be interesting if any
researchers would be able to take the time out to perhaps perform
a case study of one month of FT sightings from across the Earth.
To perhaps try and gauge how many FTs are in the atmosphere
across the time zones, as I feel quite sure that there are many
of these craft, and after all one craft cannot be every where at
the same time, just a thought.
I would like to remind the readers that
if you have any questions about this incident or comments then I
would be pleased to hear your thoughts either direct by email or
snail mail, or through the medium of this magazine, via the
It is of paramount importance that we
open a dialog on this what I see as a potentially serious matter.
Which I feel is of great importance to
all of the inhabitants of the Earth.

Temporary danger area
The RAF had also been in touch with the
Civil Aviation Authority on 24th March who set up a Dangerous
Flying Zone within a ten mile radius of Howden Moors. Manchester
air traffic control were made aware of the restrictions and had
to adjust flight paths to compensate.
More puzzling still is that although
there are several witnesses to Tornado jets flying around the
alleged crash site, none of the local RAF bases would admit to
launching the fighters. at first One witness reports seeing six
Tornadoes take off from RAF Conisby in Lincolnshire at 20.45 but
officials at the base deny that they had any aircraft in the air
Since neither the Sea King helicopters
nor land based search teams managed to find any plane wreckage,
the authorities later retracted their story that a plane had come
down and reported that a Bolide meteorite had been responsible
for the explosion heard by the gamekeeper and his wife. They also
stated that the meteorite was also responsible for the sonic boom
detected by the Edinburgh Seismic Unit.
Update:. It has now been
confirmed that, there was in fact no space debris in the
atmosphere over the north of England on the 24th March 1997, the
monitoring station at Fylingdales would have picked up any such
debris on the night in question, it is obvious that the
authorities have been party to this cover-up right from the very
beginning. . By, allowing the Bolide story to mature assisted by
certain skeptics/debunkers who are either party to this or they
are being manipulated by the military through official government
channels, or they are simply blind to the evidence while they
have been debunking my research because the skeptics/debunkers
cannot agree that we are being visited by extra terrestrials
because they would have to admit they are wrong.
Would the authorities really have
involved Sea King helicopters, Tornado jets, the Civil Aviation
Authority, the Air Intelligence Service, over two hundred rescue
workers, three police forces, a body recovery specialist and the
local coroner just for a crashed meteorite? Of course not. The
authorities must have thought something much more serious had
occurred in order to drag all these people out of bed in the
middle of the night!
Then of course there is the numerous
witnesses to the UFO itself, they are all adamant that the object
they saw was neither a plane or a meteorite. There are actually
enough reports of sightings to track the flight path of the UFO
to the explosion at Strines. So what really caused the explosion?
A military jet shot down by a UFO? or the use of E.M.P weapons
causing the jet to malfunction?
There is back up data to substantiate
the affect of EM weapons from various Russian and American
servicemen including 1971 aboard the USS John F Kennedy CVA-67.
For your information
1.Fact..Airborne ECM (Electronic Counter
Measures) can knock out enemy radar, blanketing it in high
powered radiation and causing complete loss of screen images, or
confusing it with multiple plots.
2.Fact..EMP from a nuclear burst known
as a 'click' it can destroy radio, radar and electrical circuits,
or simply stop them working for a while, depending on the
strength of the burst.
During the incident onboard the USS John
F Kennedy CVA-67, on board the ship they tried to launch two F-4
Phantoms but they could not use any radar on board the ship or
navigation equipment. In fact for twenty minutes the ship was
effectively dead in the water while it was in close proximity of
a large UFO which was glowing 'orange' after the disappearance of
the UFO control of the ships systems were restored, if this
happened to a computer controlled RAF jet while in contact with
the orange UFO this would explain the cover up of the loss of the
Tornado in respect of a situation that could well be perceived as
a hostile act.
The numerous reports of the disabling of
nuclear warheads include "Bentwaters 1980 " also in
Montana 1967 over a minuteman missile site which the military
believed could have been down to an EMP weapon. The warheads went
off-line when a glowing orange UFO was seen over the site... It
is hardly suprising that the government wish to suppress this
The point I am making is that at each of
the above mentioned incidents around the world the use of E.M.P
weapons have been considered as a distinct possibility and at
each of the incidents the reports all talk about a glowing orange
UFO, and with at least 6 witnesses who although did not see the
shape of the triangle due the sightings not being as close as
others who saw the triangle they all said that the object was
We can be certain that a flying triangle
was sighted, an explosion occurred and that the Military have
lost a jet during this encounter the authorities are trying to
cover up their involvement.
Police Mix Up
The local police report for the night of
March 24th contains some interesting information which may even
point to a local police officer actually sighting the UFO.
Detective Inspector Wallace had put out a plea for information on
the position of Hale Bopp in the local area. PC Alan Jarvis
responded saying that the comet was visible as a bright star
moving from Stannington towards Bradfield in a left to right
motion at 22.30. However as all avid astronomers know, comets do
not move visible in the night sky. So what did PC Jarvis see? I
have called PC Jarvis on at least half a dozen occasions and he
has not returned my calls. I feel that he has been told not to
discuss the night of the 24th.
Hospital On Full Alert
If no plane crashed why was the nearest
hospital was put on full alert and why were staff briefed to
receive plane crash victims? They were understandably mystified
when they were told to stand down several hours later. Then when
some of the nurses at the Hallamshire hospital asked what was
going on they were fobbed off and told not to discuss the
evenings events with anyone. Why?
Search Teams To The Rescue
As well as air support being mobilized
on March 24th, land rescue teams were also alerted to the
situation. Seven mountain rescue teams were called to the area
but oddly police ordered their search to be concentrated at an
area four miles from the area the explosion was heard in. It
wasn't until 08.00 on the 25th that a section of the mountain
rescue team, consisting of only four men, began to search the
Strines area. The gamekeeper who reported the explosion had
offered the previous night to lead a search of the exact area but
police refused his help. This seems strange considering the
gamekeeper would have known the surrounding land better than
anyone else present and would easily have been able to lead
search teams. Surely, if as the police kept saying, a plane had
crashed, wouldn't they want all the help they could get to search
for possible survivors? Why then was the search by the mountain
rescue teams called off after only 13 hours, when normal searches
for victims of crashes in mountainous areas last at least 72
hours? It is not surprising that no crashed plane was found?
Again the relevance of these points and those in the witness
statements will be covered at the end in the conclusion.

Within a Fifty Mile Radius Of 'The Sheffield Incident'
Before we look at the conclusions, I
feel that this Triangle data should be included. Nearly all the
sightings you are about read have come from in around the
Pennines area but I have included the Belgium incident due to the
fact that the Belgium triangle was tracked on no less than three
N.A.T.O radar stations and the chase lasted 75 minutes which, on
its own will prove that these large triangles are not part of
some secret Stealth type project.

Omar Fowler, Phenomena Research
Association from The Flying Triangle Mystery
Please note FT denotes Flying Triangle.
During the period 1989/90 it was the
turn of Belgium to be inundated with nightly visits
from this huge black silent triangular
The Belgium ufo group SOBEPS (Societe
Belge d'Etudes des Phenomenes Spatiaux)
became a major player in the quest to
locate the FT's flying over their country.
The SOBEPS reporting organisation was so
widespread and well organised that the Belgium Air Force called
for their assistance in tracking the FT's flying across the
The SOBEPS group were held in such high
standing that during one period the Belgium Air Force made two
F16 fighter interceptors available to be scrambled and directed
by the SOBEPS group.
The FT events in Belgium later became
the subject of the American TV 'Sightings' programme and shown on
British Sky TV in 1993. In this program a number of Belgium
police and air force officers were interviewed and they described
what they had seen in this programme. It also included instrument
panel and radar console film from the F16 showing an actual F16
interception over Belgium, or rather, an attempted interception.
The rapid acceleration and change in altitude made it impossible
for the F16's to follow the FT. Even if it had been possible for
the aircraft to follow the FT, the pilot would have been unable
to withstand the G forces involved in such manoeuvres especially
when, on camera the FT dropped from 9000ft to 500ft in 1 second.
The FT also accelerated away from 0 mph to 900 mph in just a few
seconds. All of these events being captured on the cockpit
The Belgium Military went on National TV
and said "The craft was performing well outside the
parameters of an aircraft."
With the widespread use of home video
cameras, it was not long before a number of Belgium
ufo witnesses came forward with video
footage of strange lights in the sky, several photographs were
also obtained, one being enhanced and producing a convincing
triangular shape with lights on each corner and a central red
The possibility that these Flying
Triangles could be explained away as a new experimental Stealth
aircraft must surely be discounted. In one particular Belgium
incident a cyclist riding along a country road saw a huge silent
FT hovering low over the countryside. He dismounted from his
bicycle and pushing it walked underneath the craft and gazed up
The FT then slowly moved off and out of
One of the earliest reports of strange
sightings that has come to light is that of Mr Robin Gibbard who
witnessed an unusual event at 11.00 on April 19 1956.
Mr Gibbard and another joiner were
working on a house roof in Allestree, Derby, when he heard the
sound of an approaching aircraft. At that time Mr Gibbard was
deeply involved in competition model flying and this, together
with his hobby of aircraft recognition, made him familiar with
all types of aircraft flying at the time.
Mr Gibbard recounted the event:-
"The day was very clear, with very little cloud about. On
hearing an aircraft approaching, I looked up to see a twin radial
engine, propeller driven, Avro Anson (which even then was
becoming a rarity). The aircraft was approaching at a height of
about 2000ft. in altitude or less. These aircraft were very slow
fliers and used mainly for reconnaissance."
"I was amazed to see a delta wing
plane circling fairly close to the Avro Ansen, actually circling
around the plane at least twice, at a speed not much more than
the plane's speed but making no audible sound, the only sound
came from the Anson."
"After making two circuits, it (the
delta) broke away and then increasing its speed to a phenomenal
amount, disappeared upwards on a long curve in about 5-10
"My partner also saw this
occurrence, but unfortunately he has since died and cannot
corroborate this statement."
"It could not have been a glider
because of its breakaway speed and any possible delta aircraft of
that period always made plenty of noise." (Avro 707A, Avro
707B, Avro 707C, BP111, FD1, FD2, Gloster, Javelin, etc.) Model
planes of any classification could not perform these

Mansfield Nottinghamshire 23/8/94
On the night of the 23rd August 1994, Mr
Daryl Spence and his friend (two young ex miners), decided to
hold a sky-watch. They positioned themselves on top of an old
coal tip at Shirebrook, Notts, with the intention of trying out
their 8mm video camera. It was shortly before midnight when they
observed a very bright light moving rapidly across the sky. Daryl
Spence began to video what turned out to be a very fascinating
Using their binoculars, they were able
to make out the shape of a 'Flying Triangle'. It had a bright
white light on the nose and a series of coloured lights around
it. The FT, which was travelling at low altitude, slowed down and
appeared to hover over the Mansfield area. Daryl Spence continued
to video as the stationary light shone brightly low over the
It was then they heard what they thought
was a lone helicopter approaching (it turned out to be three) The
helicopters' lights were clearly visible as they headed towards
the hovering white light (as though being vectored onto a target
by radar). As the helicopters drew closer, the hovering FT light
'blinked' off. The helicopters flew around for several minutes as
though searching for something. After they departed, the FT
blinked back and became a bright light source once again. Shortly
afterwards it flew off and was lost from view.
The military authorities later denied
that any aircraft had been in the vicinity.
During the period December 1994 to May
1995, 52 'Flying Triangle' incidents were reported in the Derby
and surrounding area. There follows a selection of these
Amateur astronomer Mr Andrew Emmerson
was driving home from work when he noticed a bright light source
in the sky. He drove to a nearby hill where he observed a FT with
white lights, two pulsating red lights and a green light. The FT
hovered and then shone a white beam of light to the ground. The
witness watched the FT for approximately half an hour before it
Long Eaton, Nottinghamshire 4-2-97
As Mr Raymond Spybey walked down Oxford
Street in his home town of Long Eaton
in Nottinghamshire he noticed what
appeared to be "lights in the distance". The time was
on the night of February 4th. He took no
notice of the lights at first until he realised they were
stationary. "When I stopped walking they came towards me,
then when I started walking again 'it' stopped.The next thing I
knew was that the lights were above me and I could make out that
the shape was triangular, with yellowish lights at each angle and
one in the centre, there was a little red light on one of the
sides.Then I lost sight of it over some factories and although I
made for a nearby bridge, to get a better view, when I got there,
it had vanished."
"I remember that I heard a
faint humming sound as it was moving, but when it stopped it was
silent. I could clearly see that it was a black triangle craft
and it was about 400ft up. It appeared from the North and
disappeared heading in a NW direction."
Littleover, Derby 2-3-97
On the night of March 2 1997, a Mr B.M.
of Littleover, Derby decided to go outside to his car and switch
on his car alarm system. The time was 19.55. He continues with
his story: -
"It was a clear night and I noticed
how bright the stars were, I noticed the flashing lights of two
aircraft in the distance, over towards Castle Donnington."
(East Midlands Airport).
"Then I looked around and as I
looked straight above me, I saw a triangular shaped object come
from above me and travel quickly towards the SE. I looked at this
triangle several times, before my mind registered what I was
seeing. The FT seemed to be heading towards the aircraft, as if
to go under and between them. Then I lost sight of the object, as
it disappeared in the night sky."
"There was no noise whatsoever from
the FT and it carried no lights. It travelled in a straight line
with the point of the triangle going first."
That same evening, a Mr Steve Gamble had
been travelling towards Long Eaton, (just a few miles to the
south east of Derby), when he saw a lightening flash in the sky.
Then he saw something like "a golf ball of light flash
across the sky!"
Also that evening Pauline Cooper of
Derby, reported seeing a bright light moving across the sky at
Witness Mr Keith Thompson reported that
he had been watching two FT's through his binoculars from his
home in Repton (near Derby). He had been able to make out a
number of red, green and white flashing lights. Shortly
afterwards a FT flew over his house causing his TV picture to
distort (seen by his wife) and he noticed that his map compass
had fluctuated. He also commented that the FT had moved with a
"jerky, stop-go motion."
Mr Peter Hickie and his brother were
driving along the A52 near Willington south of Derby. The pair
were returning from a holiday in Eire and had landed at Holyhead
a few hours previously.
Peter, who is retired, continues the
"We were on our way from Willington
to Swarkstone and we had just negotiated a right hand bend in the
road, when we saw a very large triangular object coming directly
towards us. I said to my brother, what on earth is that?"
"I noticed that it had
approximately nine, large, three dimensional light panels, like
blocks of white light, underneath the aircraft. They were very
bright and made it difficult to distinguish the exact outline,
once it was overhead, but then it appeared to be a type of delta
We stopped the car and got out for
several minutes. We heard a sound like jet engines and we could
only think that it was a type of aircraft used for night
surveying of some sort. However, it was so cold, we got back into
the car and watched it until it went out of sight behind some
trees, heading for Swarkstone. We couldn't understand why, if it
was a military aircraft, it had such a large block of lights
Mr Keith Thompson (an ex-military person
and keen observer), reported that he had seen unusual lights over
the Littleover area (near Sinfin), Derby. Mr Thompson had spent
many hours searching the sky with binoculars since the FT 'flap'
began in December 1994. He also managed to capture the lights
with his video camera.
A witness Mr S.H. was driving home from
work through Derby on the A5111 ring road. The traffic slowed
down at the busy 'spider bridge' roundabout, Allerton. When the
witness reached the junction, he stopped to let traffic pass and
while he was stationary, he happened to glance upwards. There
hovering high over the bridge was 'the triangle'. (The local
media had made many people aware that FT's were visiting the
Mr S.H. continued: -
"I looked, I really looked! I know
in my mind that I saw it. There were cars behind me and one
vehicle to the right of me, I couldn't possibly be the only
person to have seen it."
Three witnesses at Ilkeston, Derbyshire
watched a FT stationary in the sky, covered in 'stars' with a red
light adjacent to the white 'nose' light. It was observed for
over half an hour. A witness described it as follows:-
"The object was roughly triangular,
with many projections, as though three stars had been pressed
together. It was less than a mile away and about 500ft high, my
estimate is based on known comparisons. It was far brighter than
any star and in the top left hand corner there was a small red
A female witness, together with her twin
daughters (10) observed a large grey FT while driving home in
Derby. The FT was seen hovering over the Derwent Housing Estate.
It appeared to have 'rounded' corners (see Belgian FT) and had a
series of bright red lights around the edges of the craft. (See
A witness, Mr R.C. had just returned to
his home in Mackworth, Derby, when he observed two FT's with
numerous lights. They were stationary at first, but then began to
move towards the witness. He heard a 'humming noise' as they
passed slowly overhead. He noticed that his dogs were nervous. A
second person at Mackworth also witnessed this incident (there
were three independent witnesses). A Mr Mark Purvis saw two
bright light approaching his house. He was able to make out the
shape of two FT's as they passed overhead. He also heard a
'humming' noise and commented on that his dogs snapped at each
Mark Cheetham / Tracey
While travelling from Matlock, on the
Moorwood road near Southingfield, Derbyshire, Mark Cheetham and
his girlfriend (Tracey), noticed a light in the sky that they at
first took to be an aircraft. They were driving in the direction
of the light that they estimated to be about a mile away. They
were becoming increasingly curious and were soon close enough to
establish that the light was not moving, but hovering quite low.
It was at a height about 200/300ft from the ground and close to a
nearby cottage. Mark told his girlfriend that he was determined
to find out what it was and he turned the car down a road heading
towards the cottage. Tracey was now becoming very frightened and
Mark slowed the car down to about 10mph. Finally he pulled the
car to a halt when they were about 75 yards away from the lights.
The lights were hovering motionless, about 200ft to the left of
Mark and Tracey peered out into the
night and Mark asked his girlfriend what she could see. Both
agreed that the object had three red lights in a triangular
formation of about 40ft in diameter, with two round white lights
the size of an old dustbin lid in the centre of the craft.
Then the craft started to move towards
them, at a speed of no more than 20mph. It took only 30/45
seconds before it was directly over the car! "Tracey was
screaming at me to drive off but all I could do was sit there and
watch it, until it was overhead and out of my vision by then I
was getting really worried, so I started to drive off. At this
point at this point I asked Tracey where it was and she said it
went straight up and disappeared in the direction of Tansley.
The following incidents reported by
several witnesses relate how on the 1st March
1995 there was progressive FT activity
throughout the day in the area of the A52 Derby to
Ashbourne main road. This appeared to be
a day of intense FT activity in the Derby area,
although FT incidents were reported
several days before and after the 1st March 1995.
Pete, a witness at Kirk Langley (a
village on the A52 Derby to Ashbourne road)
reported that in the middle of the night
he heard a noise "It sounded like a washing machine."
He saw bright orange lights reflected in
his bedroom, he looked out of his window but saw nothing. He
commented "Strange things happen around here, there are
lights that are not lights."
A Mr D.W. was driving on the A6 (approx.
3 miles East of Kirk Langley), from Derby to Belper when he saw a
vivid bright light in the sky. The witness was driving alone at
the time and he was unable to give a clearer description, other
than seeing a bright hovering light in the sky.
A Mr B and his partner were travelling
in their car on the busy A52 Derby to Ashborne road. They were a
few miles out from Derby and heading north west, when they
noticed a bright light in the sky above them. As they drew closer
they were aware that the traffic was slowing down.They were then
able to see the reason for the traffic delay. The bright light
was in fact a series of lights in the shape of a flying triangle
and the FT was hovering low over the main A52 road. The traffic
had slowed down to a crawl as drivers peered up, looking at the
brightly lit FT. "It was so low that you could not fail to
notice it." commented Mr B. "I cannot understand why
other drivers did not report it." Though they had.
Another driver Mr Hutchinson, was also
driving along the A52 Derby to Ashbourne road at that time and
reported seeing a FT with red and green lights around it.
A Mrs A. H. reported that during the
same early evening, she had also been driving along the A52 Derby
to Ashbourne road. Suddenly a bright global object with a series
of white, red and green lights and a"triangular" base
had zoomed by close to her car and then "vanished out of
Derby (Rolls-Royce Aero Works)
In the early hours (01.20) of the 29th
June 1994, Mr Alan Beardmore was driving his van on his way home
from a snooker tournament. His journey took him past the engine
testing facility of the Rolls-Royce Engine Company. On one side
of the road there is a series of large concrete buildings and on
the other there is open countryside with a series of electrical
pylons carrying to the test facility. As Mr Beardmore was driving
along his van headlights went out and almost at the same time he
noticed a series of lights hovering over a nearby field. He
pulled to a stop and peered out of the window, everywhere was
deserted apart from a formation of three bright white lights
hovering over a nearby power line pylon.
The witness was able to make out what
appeared to be a triangle of lights and close to the 'nose', he
noticed a bright red light which was positioned next to the
bright white light. Mr Beardmore looked through the side window
of his van and peered into the darkness. He was just able to make
out the classic FT shape then as he watched it started to move
away. He turned his van around to follow the FT, but it was now
out of sight then suddenly his headlights came on again! He
surveyed the sky and had one last look for the FT, but it had

1992 as Russell Kennett drove back from visiting a friend at the
famous 'Jimmy's' hospital in Leeds. Russell had set off from the
hospital in his car at 22.30 and as he approached the roundabout
at the junction for Pudsey, his attention was attracted by a
"glowing green light in the sky." "I thought that
it was a firework at first," commented Russell. "There
was a Michael Jackson concert on in Rounhay Park and there were
to be fireworks at the end of the concert. Then as we were
turning right onto the Leeds to Bradford road, I realised that it
was a large glowing green object moving in a cloud."
"As it moved closer, I realised that it was a big 'Flying
Triangle'. To my amazement, it moved overhead, very slowly and
silently, heading from a NW to a SE direction, it seemed to
I opened the car window to get a better
view, but there were other cars behind me and I moved on. I
looked again to see where it had gone to, but I could not see it,
the 'Flying Triangle' had gone."
The FT was described as being very big,
glowing green, with no sound and very large. "It was so big,
someone else must have seen it." commented Russell.
The 'Flying Triangle' obviously made a
big impression on him as it passed silently overhead. "It
seemed to glide." commented Russell.
In the early hours of Wednesday 1st May
1996, postal driver Mr Tom Culleton was travelling on his nightly
route which runs between Derby, Burton-on-Trent and Swadlincote.
It was a journey that the driver had travelled frequently over
the previous three years. It was a routine journey delivering
parcels between the various postal depots, normally without
incident and Tom had no reason to believe that this was going to
be any different. Tom takes up the story:-
"I was driving a Post Office mail
van along the A50 Swadlincote to Burton-on-Trent road. It was
approximately 01.50 as I approached the Stanhope Arms Hotel. It
was just after passing the Cheterfield Arms, that I noticed a
bright light in the sky ahead of me and slightly to my right. It
appeared to be descending and coming in my direction. It was a
dark night but clear. As I passed the Burton golf course, the
houses to my right obscured my view of it. For some unknown
reason, I stopped at the Bretby Lane junction, where I could see
up Bretby Lane."
The object passed across Bretby Lane,
over the houses and it appeared to be low. To me, it appeared
just above the houses. It was very large, very bright and had
lots of bright lights. I noticed a green light at the rear. I
thought, it looked like the USA Space Shuttle in shape and size,
as I have seen that on TV after it has landed. I could see some
windows, square, but rounded in the corners. It crossed over
Bretby Lane and to me at least, it seemed to be going very slow,
almost in slow motion! It then disappeared behind the houses. It
made no noise, it was silent. I may be wrong, but to me it
appeared to be approximatly 200 yards away from me when it
crossed over Bretby Lane. The colour of the object was greyish,
with lots of very bright lights and a green light at the rear
(the same as a traffic lights green colour). It travelled very
slowly. It was the size of a U.S. Space Shuttle! It could not
have landed on Derby football ground, it was too big!"Tom
travelled on this journey in the early hours of 1st of May. On
the 2nd of May, this trip was undertaken by a relief driver (who
later arrived at the sorting office in a state of shock, after
also having a FT encounter). On 3rd May, Tom returned to his
normal route, Derby, Swadlincote, Burton-on-Trent and had a
further frightening experience.......our investigation continues.
A Discussion of Interest
Source: In absolute confidence please, I
deal with aviation products, I do pilot supplies
satellite navigation supplies and
equipment, I retail various products. We did an exhibition at
Christmas in Telford.
This chappie came to see me and we were
talking about aircraft. I gather that he is a civilian in his
60's ex-military and had flown a lot of aircraft, all sorts of
aircraft. We were talking about aircraft and I sprung the
question on him that I do with all sorts of people, "So do
you believe in UFOs?"
Source: He said to me "What do you
mean?" I replied that I had heard of quite a few people who
have had quite a few sightings of the 'Flying Triangle'.
"Yes," he said "Yes, I make them." I said,
"How do you mean you make them?" "Well let me put
it this way" he said "We are actually making triangular
shaped craft in this country, but we are aware of what we would
call extra-terrestrial craft flying over this country." He
repeated when questioned, "We are aware that there are
triangular craft flying over this country that are not of this
Source: At this, I moved him away from
the other customers, as this was a private conversation. I said
to him "Do you mind me asking you one question, where are
you?" "I can't tell you that." he said. I said
"I'll ask you one other question, what is the chance of me
visiting your factory?" "Absolutely not, We're not top
secret, we're levels above top secret. We have materials now, in
this country, that we could manufacture Stealth aircraft with,
that would be virtually undetectable."
Source: Undetectable by what means, I
don't know, visual night vision, radar, I don't know. He
complained to me, "Quite frankly, there were too many, so
and so's in London sitting on their backsides, who were not
releasing funds to us. But, we have the technology to lead the
world in Stealth aircraft." then he said, "Our aircraft
are telemetrically controlled."
Source: That is 100% the truth, but
please don't mention my name. I said to my wife afterwards, I was
quite surprised, he told me what he had told me. I remember he
"Yes, I expect our craft have been
seen by people."
Source: He seemed a very sincere fellow.
I can't disclose his name for obvious reasons, but yes that's
what I was told.
SILENCE - IGNORANCE OR INTRIGUE
The apparent lack of M.O.D interest in
the UFO subject and flying triangles in particular could be taken
as a rebuff to the many hundreds of sincere and concerned
witnesses who have reported their sightings and encounters during
The M.O.D. apparently wishes to give the
impression that it is generally unconcerned about UFO reports and
that "They are of no defense significance." It is only
recently that the prominent figure of Nick Pope has emerged on
the ufology scene and has been prepared to 'tell all.'
With three years experience in an M.O.D.
department attributed with being 'the only' department concerned
with the analysis of UFO reports. Nick Pope has revealed
instances where there have been cases of mysterious unidentified
craft flying over military air bases and witnessed by experienced
RAF officers. Hardly a case of "no defense
Nick Pope has also stated that as far as
he is aware, his department was the only one dealing with ufo
reports, but is this statement correct? The security surrounding
this subject has been quoted by several prominent researchers as
being above that of the 'H bomb'.
Is it therefore likely that we really
have an inkling of what is going on in top secret military
Although Nick Pope appears convinced
that his department was the only one involved in analysis of UFO
events, other sources indicate that his department was probably
no higher than number three in the chain of command, concerned
with examination of UFO activity over the UK It is believed to be
superseded by the DSTI (Department of Scientific Intelligence)
and also by the DI55 (Defense Intelligence Unit).
Over past years there have been many
instances where UFO witnesses have been visited by smartly
dressed strangers, inquiring about the 'UFO event'.
In several cases the gentlemen concerned
have produced identification showing them to be members of
military intelligence or one of the American intelligence
I have in my possession sixteen
documents recovered from the public records office at Kew London
which confirm at least seven secret departments, operating inside
the armed forces who have been carrying out investigations into
the subject of UFO's in a covert manner, including the sending
out of field operatives to interview witnesses pertaining to UFO
sightings, as well as interaction between similar American
groups, and the playing down of the whole subject so as to not
fuel an outcry for a public investigation into the subject of
UFO's in the Houses of Parliament, in one communication between
UK and US.
Groups it is mentioned with regard to
UFO's here in the UK that as we play down the subject, UFO's have
only been mentioned in the houses of Parliament one in the last
five or six years, and then only in a perfunctory way.
All these secret groups who the MOD
claim do not exist, all operate behind the scenes of the front
window letter writing UFO office at Whitehall, now known as Air

Triangles & Stealth Technology
What are we to make of the mysterious
flying triangles? Could they be a result of the advanced
technology now being used by aircraft manufactures at the cutting
edge of avionics development.
It is quite probable that there are now
in existence, aircraft of an advanced triangular design.
We have heard that stealth materials now
being used are not all 'man made'.
(Source: Aeronautical engineer, recently
returned from an 'exchange' visit to the USA).
If such advanced aircraft as the FT
exists, there are a number of questions that remain unanswered:-
A) Why would they be test flown, low,
over heavily built up areas of the U.K? Such an aircraft would be
designated 'Top Secret' and normally flown from establishments
such as Boscombe Down.
B) If they are Stealth aircraft, why
would they fly around at night, illuminated like "Christmas
Trees" or alternatively, why would they fly close to
airports, without any navigation or strobe lights?
C) If they were undertaking a normal
night flying test program, why would they undertake such
irresponsible behavior as to silently hover near an isolated
witness or car full of witnesses, far from any airfield?
D) It has been said that a triangle is
an excellent design for flight and this could explain their
design, but what could explain the FT's 'broad side first'
movement, seen by numerous witnesses?
E) If they are under Air Traffic Control
in the U.K, why have they been observed frequently flying over
Nuclear Power Stations, a restricted 'no flying' area?
F) Could the UK afford to develop such a
Stealth aircraft as the 'Flying Triangle', when the British
Aircraft industry currently has to co-operate with several other
countries to develop the 'Eurofighter'. Without this co-operation
the UK couldn't afford to proceed alone.
G) It is claimed that the 'Flying
Triangle' is a product of the British Aerospace Establishment at
Warton, Lancs. If this is the case, why was Simon Lewis of the
North Lancashire UFO Investigation Group, invited to address a
meeting of British Aerospace engineers at Warton to explain what
the 'Flying Triangle' thing is all about. They had heard of the
huge FT craft and exclaimed "Its not ours!" However
this does not preclude the possibility that a smaller 'Stealth'
triangular craft may be undertaking flying trials over the UK.
H) If the FT was due to exercise in
Belgium air space during the period 1989/90, why did the Belgium
Air Force have no knowledge of the FT flight plan? Why was it
necessary for the Belgium Air Force to 'scramble' a group of
F16's to intercept the 'Flying Triangles'?
I) We have had reports of FT's dating
back to the mid-50's, why hasn't the technology been revealed by
now? The American authorities wasted no time in disclosing the
use of Stealth aircraft in the recent Gulf War.
J) If the FT is British (or American)
what is it doing flying around Japan, Guatemala, Belgium, Spain,
Canada, Brazil etc.?
K) Are we being confronted with both a
huge extra-terrestrial craft and a smaller military Stealth
At this point I feel would be a good
place to make the break for part 2. Please check out part 3 in
which we will go over a brief overview of the situation followed
by my conclusions. I would also like to thank Roy Hale for giving
myself the chance to have this incident placed in the public
domain, as always your comments are welcome on this matter.
