Secret UFO files released

Tim Barlass

     It is probably the closest Australia has come to scrambling fighter jets to intercept a UFO.

Documents that have just become available under the 30-year rule at the National Archives of Australia reveal how two RAAF Mirage jets were placed on the second highest level of alert to determine the cause of unidentified radar contacts seen on screens at Mascot.

The ''X Files'' viewed in Canberra also give details of other unexplained sightings, some of which are supported by witness statements to police.

In the Sydney alert, the papers stamped ''restricted'' tell how operation ''Close Encounter'' was launched by No.3 Control and Reporting Unit at RAAF Base Williamtown near Newcastle on June 30, 1983, after the phenomenon was first noticed earlier in the month.

Senior air controllers at Mascot said the contacts were mostly located between 70 and 150 nautical miles north of Sydney at ''alleged speeds of 1100-6500 km/h that suggested high altitude''.

  1. The problem with the "UFO" phenomena is that its hard to know where the "UFO" connection stops and the American government connection begins.

    Personally I believe the UFO's (Atlanteans) may have sold out and are either working for the US government or have handed them much of their data collection (including on us) and some of their technology. Big question is to what purpose and why?

    Why is everything secret? Thats another puzzle. "Secrecy is repugnant to an open society..." as the late JFK said.
