One of the best UFO photographs ever taken was hung on the wall at the MoD for several years.

Huffington Post said:

It was said to be one of the best photos of a UFO, and a poster-size image of it hung on a wall of Britain's Ministry of Defence. But then, at some point between 1991 to 1994, it vanished, gone, never to be seen again.

I have been digging around a little.

Here is a UFO Digest article with a picture - however it looks like it's just a representation and not an original.

No, but I imagine that anyone wanting to fake a UFO photo might.

I believe he was stating his opinion, if thats ok with you?

I still await the compelling Exhibit A.

Well, whether it was worth mentioning or not - I doubt the poster or the actual photo/negatives will ever surface. Probably destroyed or locked away for a very long time. It is a typically British thing to do though...hang some top secret stuff on a wall until someone realises it shouldn't be there.

It's probably there somewhere. Or ET came and abducted it! :alien:

A lot of these "OLD " stories are re-posted because every year new members join , some of which haven't heard of this incident. Other wise this sight would quickly run out of material.

news/n(y)o͞oz/
Noun:

    Newly received or noteworthy information, esp. about recent or important events.

Note the key words there.....

Interesting anyway. Who would expect that something hanging on the wall of an office is anything important? The perfect place to put something! In plain sight! Still, I suspect it's been put in the relevant security section of the MoD and will only been seen by those who have clearance to do so.

I always wonder, how do you even get clearance to do so, does everybody have it who is important? Does the Queen? Does the PM? Interesting.... Sigh, if only I could enter the MoD :( It'd be so interesting.

We still talk about things that happened hundreds of years ago that aren't solved, so why not discuss things like this? Get over it.

Anyway I hadn't heard of this and I find it interesting, so am gonna read some more about it.

There are things known, and things unknown and in between are the Doors!
