Two brothers saw a 'UFO battle' 40 years ago

Rob and Phil Tindale have stood by their claim that they witnessed two UFOs battling in the skies over Australia.
At around 9:30pm on February 7th, 1980, the ten-year-old siblings had been at their family home in Aldgate when they spotted a bright yellow object 'bobbing about' in the sky about 20 miles away.

A few minutes later, it was joined by a second, slightly larger object that was emitting a red light.

According to the brothers, the second object would fly up to the first, stop, reverse, then repeat the process over and over as if it was trying to provoke a reaction.

Then, without warning, the yellow object took off at great speed, prompting a cat-and-mouse chase through the sky with both objects exhibiting remarkable maneuvering capabilities and speeds.

After about 15 minutes, the two objects zoomed off over a hill and out of sight.

Even to this day, the two brothers remain adamant about what they had seen.
"Certainly there were two lights, one appeared to be chasing the other, they both dipped below the horizon," said Rob. "It was a very memorable thing."

There were other witnesses too, including local farmhand Daryl Browne who reported seeing a "speedboat-shaped yellow thing" crash into some nearby trees.

When he went out to investigate, he encountered the object which he claimed was 30ft across.

He quickly called the police, but by the time anyone showed up the object had disappeared.

Broken branches were found strewn across the crash site, but that was all.

"Over the years I've done lots of reading but also personal investigation, contacting people one to one," said Rob. "There are loads of people out there who just don't report it, don't talk about it."

"Not everyone has a fantastically compelling sighting, often it's just lights in the sky, but there are significant numbers of sightings where there is an object that is so far beyond our capability it has to be extraterrestrial."

Hawken, one of my favorite bear stories was when my daughter was a teen. She was home alone when she heard a disturbance in the basement. She thinks an animal is in the basement and when she looks she sees that the basement door was ajar. She doesn't want to go to the door and close it for fear that a wild animal might appear at the door. She backs off to a door leading outside. It has a screen door so she goes through that and looks into the house listen to the banging around coming out of the basement. She stares in through the screen door waiting for whatever beast is in the basement to com... [More]

I believe stories like this but this could have been experimental aircraft amongst other possibilities. I understand the term UFO Only means unidentified flying object not necessarily extraterrestrial so I never assume it's extraterrestrial. The public is not made aware of the newest experimental technology it's all secret many people don't think about this they just assume it's got to be extraterrestrial and use the term UFO to denote this, well I don't think most people know what we're actually capable of these days.

Get ready there is a cult of dear blind faith true believers who insist that we ( people who think like you and i do )  claim UFOs do not exist....and it gets better, they seldom come right out and say that UFO means "alien"  ( because it sounds so silly ) but they make it clear that to them UFO means alien.

 You seem to be confusing 'imagination' and 'fabrication'. If a child comes screaming from their bedroom saying they saw a 'bogeyman', and investigation discovers a coat hanging on a door, it would be fair to say the child's imagination ran away with him, but was not fabricating a story. This is one of the main problems in all of these UFO and bigfoot stories. The seed is planted in gullible peoples minds so that when they see something they can not identify, aliens and large, hairy bipeds are the only possibilities.

That is just one explanation of 1000s of explanations of UFOs.

This sighting was experimental aircraft?  Where from?
Comment icon #37 Posted by kel_kel on 26 October, 2019, 4:15
I don't know where it was from but I suspect it was probably terrestrial but I don't have a closed mind about it either.

Why? Can you give more detail what it was and why it was where it was?
