British CAA interested in pilot UFO reports

Unlike the MoD, the British Civil Aviation Authority have decided to continue collecting UFO reports.

Recently it was revealed that the Ministry of Defense had shut down their UFO desk and were no longer looking in to cases, a move that would seem to put an end to official UFO investigations. The Civil Aviation Authority however has other ideas, believing that UFO cases by pilots are still worth looking in to as they could represent a legitimate air safety threat.

One particularly interesting case occurred in 1985 when pilot David Hastings was flying over the Mojave Desert in America when he and his co-pilot encountered a strange object as it passed above them. "We were sitting there enjoying the sunshine when we both suddenly saw this speck out on the horizon at our 12 o'clock position," said Hastings. "This speck suddenly grew extremely quickly until we saw this huge shadow go over the top of us."

"Despite the fact the UK's Ministry of Defense officially ended its UFO investigations in 2009, it appears that the British Civil Aviation Authority decided -- unbeknownst to the public -- to continue collecting reports that involved UFOs with possible flight safety issues."

The MoD has no specific capability for identifying the nature of such sightings. This is why governments choose to ignore it around the world. Most of them, anyway. I don't think the superpowers put to much stock in military reports out of Borneo.

Interesting the eyes could not see what the camera recorded. Do not both work in the same range of visible light? Or does the camera extend into the UV or Infrared? If you ever watched the old sci-fi show, Babylon5, you may remember the "Shadows" (here with the evil Mr. Morden) which could not be seen by the eye but were visible using electronic means which could detect other wavelengths. That was a great series!

Many of the pictures in the slide show have been debunked as hoaxes on SyFy's Fact or Faked.

Just like Project Bluebook in the late 60's that the USAF conducted, the MoD decides to end their version as well. Getting a lot of reports but gaining little ground or so it seems.

I would not trust Sy Fy's facted or faked If I were you or for that matter anything else on Tv that involves UFOs, or, Paranormal research, or ghost hunting, or monster hunting. all they are interested is ratings. Regardless of what is real they will say and do whatever they think will get them the most ratings. ( i don't trust people who run the moment things start getting interesting )
