Mystery surrounds claims that jets from RAF Lakenheath were called to intercept a UFO. UFO experts claim to have a recording which they have posted on the internet as proof that London Military Air Traffic Control contacted a flight of US Air Force F-15s from the base, after a UFO was picked up on their radar on January 12.

But air traffic control denies making the call and RAF Lakenheath will not comment without having more detail over the alleged incident.

."One pilot was heard to say to another: 'Did you see that?' And the other replied: 'Yes, but I don't want to talk about it," said Chris Rolfe, of UFO Monitors East Kent.



What a load of crap.......How unrealistic.....'Yes, but I don't want to talk about it'..... hmm.gif

Yeah sure, more like, 'Yeah, what the f*&% was that thing ??'............... yes.gif

All I see is UFO experts peddling this story, no one else..... sad.gif

Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.

What I mean is , if you saw a UFO, what would be your response ??? Would it be , 'I don't wanna talk about it' or ' Holy crap, what was that?' ?????

My response would be the second one obviously........Why wouldn't he want to talk about it ?????

I'd be telling anyone who listened about this............. yes.gif

I second that. I am curious to hear what was said of the UFO.

The reporting site does have the audio file:
F15sANDUFO.wav
Sounds clear for a (ham?) recording of conversations between pilots and tower.  Interesting tho.

Well if the military was more open about it, then ordinary folk would be more willing to speak up as well...... yes.gif

Seeing a real UFO would be quite upsetting to some people's belief systems.   "I don't want to talk about it" is not necessarily an unrealistic comment.  

I'm not saying I'm convinced by this case yet myself,  but I can fathom someone responding in such a matter.

I used to live in Bury and I used to get the Bury Free Press all the time!  Also I was a frequent visitor to RAF Lakenheath.  Man makes me wish I was back there again so I could be closer to this story.

No offense, but I hate when people make comments like this. To YOU it seems unrealistic, but you have to remember: Everyone is different, so they'd all react differently. It is only unrealistic from YOUR stand point(And to some others of course).

Wow, well so far, that adds some credability to the story in my opinion. This is a "staple" and should be referenced to in UFO debates XD!

No offense taken sweetie.... original.gif  It's just that I've always had an interest in UFO's, never seen one and if I ever did, I think I'd be excited......

But then again, he was flying a plane so he was sort of 'up close and personal', different perspective I suppose........ yes.gif
