RAF leader sought evidence of Highland Sputnik crash


www.bbc.co.uk said:

A former RAF Kinloss Mountain Rescue Team leader has told how he sought evidence that a Russian satellite crashed in the Highlands 50 years ago.

David "Heavy" Whalley was intrigued by a story from the 1960s that a shepherd found the remains of a Sputnik on a moor above Ardgay in Sutherland.

An RAF Kinloss Mountain Rescue Team member sent to the scene later told Mr Whalley of finding unusual debris.

Team members involved were allegedly told to "keep quiet" about it.

After becoming Kinloss's rescue team leader in the late 1980s, Mr Whalley tried to find a record of the search in the team's logs. He believes the information was deliberately suppressed.

:rofl:  LOL Jr.    I guess they didn't bring it back with them.  Something from sputnik would be worth some bucks. Let see, I'm going to need a metal detector, a pony, sleeping bag, food.... passport... ummm.  Hey, maybe we can get Saru to sponsor the trip.

I was dating this Russian girl for a while, it's funny, even she jokes about their space station falling apart, sputnik crashing might not actually be too much of a stretch to believe.
