RAF Radar Chief: I Saw UFO Fleet

Radar Screen

AN RAF expert yesterday revealed how he tracked a whole fleet of “spaceships” on military radar — but the Ministry of Defence told him to keep quiet.

     Wing Commander Alan Turner, 64, said colleagues sat stunned when 35 super-fast vessels appeared on their screens.

Wing Cmdr Turner, who was a chief operator of the RAF’s radar system for 29 years, said the craft were equally spaced and shot from 3,000ft to 60,000ft at almost 300mph.

Incredibly, every few seconds one of the UFOs would suddenly vanish from radar and be replaced by an identical vessel moments later.

Wing Cmdr Turner said six military radars, plus operators at Heathrow, spotted the UFOs east of Salisbury Plain and filed reports on the unexplained phenomenon in 1971.

The RAF chief even drew a map charting their flight in between key sites like RAF Lyneham, Wilts, and the aircraft navigation transmitter at Brookmans Park, Herts.

Three days later, the Ministry of Defence visited the RAF and instructed staff to “never speak about the incident again”.

Wing Cmdr Turner, who retired from the RAF in 1995, said: “UFOs are a fact — I tracked them on military radar units.

“What I saw defied all logic and was, quite frankly, extraordinary.

“It wasn’t just me.

“More than 30 pairs of eyes of RAF staff and radar operators at Heathrow Airport witnessed the same thing.

“It’s arrogant to believe that we’re the only ones in this universe.”

The dad of three, of Shrewsbury, Shropshire, was a radar supervisor at the now disused RAF Sopley base, Dorset, in 1971.

Wing Cmdr Turner said: “I instantly knew this wasn’t a convoy of military planes.

“The only craft with that rate of climb were supersonic lightning aircraft but they wouldn’t have been able to hold such a perfect formation.

“They also make a lot of noise.

“No one heard a thing on the night in question.”

Wing Cmdr Turner, awarded an MBE in 1984, is guest speaker at the Close Encounters conference in Pontefract, West Yorks, next month.

Philip Mantle, of UFO Data magazine, said: “His testimony is remarkable.”
