UFO spotters and believers in extra terrestrial visitation will no longer have to ‘look to the skies’ for records of Unidentified Flying Objects, instead, they can simply go online.
The Royal Airforce is to publish details of sightings reported to their now defunct UFO unit online.
In the past, details of these reported sightings were given over to the National Archives and were often only declassified years after the supposed events had taken place.
Excitingly for UFO enthusiasts, following a Freedom of Information Act request, even the RAF’s newer reports will be published online, though the RAF’s reasoning for allowing such material to become widely available may be a little disappointing.
The Airforce it seems, has reasoned that since not a single report in the last 50 years has led to any significant discovery there is no reason for the details to remain covert.
Basically, as far the RAF is concerned we can have as much information as we like about UFOs, because in their eyes the reports lead nowhere anywhere. Although officially “The MoD has no opinion on the existence or otherwise of extra terrestrial life and does not investigate UFO reports”.
The RAF official closed its UFO unit in 2009. No doubt, Mulder will be devastated.
