Pilot ordered to shoot down UFO

Pilot ordered to shoot down UFO

LONDON - TWO US fighter planes were scrambled and ordered to shoot down an unidentified flying object (UFO) over the English countryside during the Cold War, according to secret files made public on Monday.

One pilot said he was seconds away from firing 24 rockets at the object, which moved erratically and gave a radar reading like 'a flying aircraft carrier'.

The pilot, Milton Torres, now 77 and living in Miami, said it spent periods motionless in the sky before reaching estimated speeds of more than 7,600 mph (12,000 kph).

After the alert, a shadowy figure told Mr Torres he must never talk about the incident and he duly kept silent for more than 30 years.

His story was among dozens of UFO sightings in defence ministry files released at the National Archives in London.

In a written account, Torres described how he scrambled his F-86 D Sabre jet in calm weather from the Royal Air Force base at Manston, Kent in May 1957.

'I was only a lieutenant and very much aware of the gravity of the situation. I felt very much like a one-legged man in an ass-kicking contest,' he said.

'The order came to fire a salvo of rockets at the UFO. The authentication was valid and I selected 24 rockets.

'I had a lock-on that had the proportions of a flying aircraft carrier,' he added. '

The larger the airplane, the easier the lock-on. This blip almost locked itself.'

At the last moment, the object disappeared from the radar screen and the high-speed chase was called off.

He returned to base and was debriefed the next day by an unnamed man who 'looked like a well-dressed IBM salesman'.

'He threatened me with a national security breach if I breathed a word about it to anyone,' he said.

The documents contain no official explanation for the incident, which came at a time of heightened tension between the West and the Soviet Union. Planes were on constant stand-by at British bases for a possible Soviet attack.

The files blame other UFO sightings on weather balloons, clouds or normal aircraft. Torres said he had been waiting 50 years for an explanation.

'I shall never forget it,' he told the Times. 'On that night I was ordered to open fire even before I had taken off. That had never happened before.'

UFO expert David Clarke said the sighting may have been part of a secret US project to create phantom aircraft on radar screens to test Soviet air defences.

'Perhaps what this pilot had seen was some kind of experiment in electronic warfare or maybe it was a UFO,' he said. 'Something very unusual happened.' -- REUTERS

Re: UK UFO files reveal alleged attempt to shoot UFO

a family member's told me a few times about this UFO he saw when he was a teenager. funnily enough, when he went to get a camera it flew off super fast.
coincidentally, this happened around the time he and his friends started experimenting with alcohol

Re: UK UFO files reveal alleged attempt to shoot UFO

UFO (Unknown flying object)..many of the times its just experimental aircraft of some kind. But other times, its more of alien kind. I cant blame those who doesnt believe in one as it takes its own eyes to actually witness and believe its more of a fact than fiction. Personally, i believe they exists, too many encounters and facts presented since early 50s to dismiss such alien activity does not exists..

By definition yes. it does. but if u ask me to prove it..then its kinda hard. Coz every freaking government in the world try to cover them up by claiming its some kinda experimental aircraft or just another hoax. Doing so to prevent the world from going chaos..
