Secret UFO Files Reveal British Conspiracy

Science News

18 documents with potentially sensitive information were listed. However, only 15 had been revealed as of last year, and without fanfare, as they denied any appearance of Unidentified Flying Objects.

The last three were recently released for submission to the National Archives and while they don’t contain wild stories about little green men or alien invasions, they do show that the British government has taken on the threat of UFOs, which they call ‘Aerial Phenomena’. Unidentified” (UAP, in English), much more serious than they were willing to admit.

The first revelation present in the new files shows that the Ministry of Defense had two working groups to deal with alleged UFO sightings between the years 1947 and 1997.

While one was public knowledge, as there was a whistleblowing hotline, the second was secret and only staffed by intelligence officials and experts working to investigate possible extraterrestrial threats.

One apparently serious concern revealed by the dossier was that a hostile government (possibly China or the then USSR) had captured a UFO and was willing to use alien technology to attack the UK. So Britain itself was looking for interplanetary help.

Basically, the reports show that the British authorities were desperately interested in finding an alien.

As stated in the document written by an Air Force Commander:

“Monitor all reports in case, in the future, the underlying phenomena, hitherto unknown/misunderstood, are being exploited by another nation.”

“An actual or potential enemy could develop a flying device with the characteristics that these phenomena seem to have […] high speeds, sudden maneuvers, hovering and few radar returns.”

“The RAF needs to be aware of new technologies that could be useful to its programs […] Propulsion, stealth and any new electromagnetic technology are of particular interest.”

The Defense Ministry’s UFO unit was closed in 2000 after an investigation, also made public this year, concluded that the reports “provide no useful information for Defense Intelligence” .
