Full Description & Details

I was a serving member of the British Royal Air Force my trade was as an RAF police dog handler and my duties was to provide night time security patrols with my Alsation dog guarding a number of then Handley Page Victor nuclear bombers.While on duty one night during October or November at about 11pm I had been patrolling for about 5 hours and decided to sit for a moment under the wing of one of the aircraft leaning against the wheels facing to the rear of the bomber,I hadn't, sat there for long when something made me look up above the aircraft and what I saw took my breath away and made me feel somewhat frightened ,for there hovering above the plane was a very large disc shaped craft it was spinning slowly in a clockwise direction,it was glowing with a very incandescent bright light my estimate that it must have been at least 300 to 400 feet in diameter ,I was used to the size and configureation of the large aircraft we were guarding but this craft was a great deal larger than any aircraft that we had to look after.

This craft was something that was not of this world and definitely far beyond our technology,I observed the craft for approxiamately what I believe to be about 2 to.3 minutes before it slowly moved off in a northerly direction it gathered speed and went off at lightning speed nd disappeared in seconds. I immediately walked to the next patrol area and spoke to one of my fellow dog handlers but he hadn't seen anything .I was picked up at midnight to return my dog to the kennels by land rover ,the senior officer said that I should write a report the next day this I did and luckily another sergeant who was on the other side of the airfield had also seen the craft and also was there to write up a report.Unknown to me the British Air Ministry at the time had issued a directive that any unusual sightings had to be reported to the appropriate authorities .

To conclude my statement , I have never written about this incident before but thought it was time to record what I had witnessed that night ,it is something that after all these years is still a vivid memory and one I will never forget.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

Definitely not any man made object ,I am sure it was of superior technology .

Witness Background

I am now retired ,I had a high school education ,I served in the Royal Air Force for several years as a military policeman ,I served in the Yemen and also in EAst Africa ,I have travelled extensively in the middle east and other countries in that area .I ran my own garage business for 25years before retiring.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I have read about unexplained sightings in the past ,but this was far from my thoughts on this occasion ,I certainly believe that there could be other civilisations on other planets.

Other Comments

I am a genuine person and not influenced by the media or other outside influences ,but I know what I genuinely saw on that night all those years ago.
