Mysterious MoD UFO poster disappears

Posted on Tuesday, 20 March, 2012 | Comment icon 22 comments

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

The photograph was part of a series of six images taken by hikers of a strange diamond shaped object hovering in the skies over Pitlochry, Scotland in 1990 for over 10 minutes while accompanied by two Harrier jets. UFO investigator Nick Pope noticed the photograph when he was first interviewed at the MoD for the role of chief of the Ministry of Defence's UFO office.

"I went in for an informal interview, and anyone sitting in that office found their eyes drawn to that image," he said. A few years later however both the poster and the original negatives had all but vanished, so what happened to them ?

"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."

whomever posted it is irrelevant news is supposed to be "new". news/n(y)o?oz/ 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 Q... [More]

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.

And Nick Pope is now so desperate for media exposure that an MOD office makeover equals a major cover-up. Truth be told it was probobly that one with 'I WANT TO BELIEVE' on it and it was an ironic nod to X-Files.

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. Quite a prediction I would say? Don't these guys say never say never?
