The UFO Phenomenon

Classified 1990 UFO photograph has surfaced 32 years on

A photo taken by two men who spotted a strange object above Scotland in 1990 has finally been published.
On August 4th of that year, two young chefs had been walking in the Cairngorms National Park near Perth when they spotted a strange diamond-shaped object in the sky nearby.

Terrified, the men hid behind some bushes to observe the mysterious craft.

A short time later, they heard the sound of an RAF jet approaching. The plane seemed to change course and circle the UFO for a time before returning to its original course.

Keen to take a photograph, one of the men aimed their camera at the sky and took a few snaps.

A few seconds later, the object flew upwards into the heavens and was gone.
Convinced that they had seen a UFO, the men passed their best photograph along to a local newspaper, however it was promptly handed over to the Ministry of Defense and was never published.

The image would stay classified, in fact, for over 30 years until it turned out that retired RAF officer Craig Lindsay had broken protocol by stashing a copy of it inside his desk.

Now 83, he was only too happy to provide the image so that it could finally see the light of day.

Intriguingly, it shows exactly what the two men had described - a diamond-shaped object hovering in the sky with the RAF jet visible circling it in the background.

Exactly what the object could have been, however, continues to remain a mystery.

Looks real to me and as we have a jet with it that says its RAF owned.

I think it is something that was there at the time and real in that sense.  The grain in the image generally and on the object are not different for example.  But more importantly the photo analysis done recently and in the past seem to show that manufacturing a hoax in the darkroom was ruled out. Another idea is that the object is an image of an island on a lake with its reflection directly underneath. Yet there is no real aircraft, the one shown would also be a reflection of the actual aircraft, despite the field of view being big enough to show if it was there.

Hard to say, it might also show vapour spun off from the wing *. More likely in a turn. But its at the resolution limit of the photo. As shown at start of this video *.

Because you need wings and fins to travel through space.

The fact I see a tale and little wings in the end tells me clearly this is new tech man made, the older generation of the stealth bomber and nothing more. Even it looks similar.

Right, she had crap health and i read several expects in radiation exposure saying that the sysmptom claims if it had been radiation she would have just died then, one suggested her burns were self inflicted with a sun lamp, radiation. The car dash being soft was bs as was chopper claims. I still think she got carried away thinking she could cha ching off it and messed up when she let ufos are aliens loons get involved, I still give this case 98% bs and 2% secret military human craft.
