A previously-declassified document regarding a mass UFO sighting by school children in Wales in 1977 has prompted a British Lord to call on the Ministry of Defense to come clean about what it knows about the subject of UFOs.The image is one of the drawings made by the children.
The book in question, "The Watchers", recently published by researcher Neil Spring, included a re-investigation of the case of the Brook Haven Triangle sightings from 1977. This re-examination included a letter that discussed the UFO flap, written by the chief of the S4 Wing of the Ministry of Defense, addressed to the Provost & Security Service, the military police of the Royal Air Force. The letter emphasized the legitimacy of the case, and recommended that a discreet inquiry be made into the case. This recommendation was made despite the MoD’s public stance that they had no interest in the subject of UFOs.
One of Spring’s readers, Guy Black, who is a Conservative Life Peer member of the House of Lords, has an interest in UFOs, and has called on the MoD to come clean about what it knows about the subject:
"A number of recently released Ministry of Defense files leave little doubt that a small number of sightings of aerial phenomena – particularly by military personnel, pilots and air traffic controllers – remain unexplained and unidentified. There needs to be further examination of these issues in the hope of learning something new." Lord Black is referring to such files as the Condign Report, released in 2006, which states frankly that "plasmas unknown to science" exist. It goes on to claim that they are of natural origin, but without explaining why, as they are also unknown to science, that would be so.
Nick Pope, who previously researched UFO cases for the MoD, remarks: “This bombshell document shows how the MoD’s UFO project asked the RAF Police to conduct a secret investigation into these mysterious events, while Parliament, the media and the public were being told the subject was of no defense significance."
"Defense ministers were cut out of the loop."
The illustration is a sketch made by one of the children involved in the encounter at Broad Haven. The cases itself is strikingly similar to one that took place at a school in Zimbabwe in 1994, which was extensively investigated by the late Dr. John Mack.
