Was it the RAF vs. UFOs?
AIR Force Top Guns have already battled UFOs in the skies over Britain under a top-secret Government directive, a former senior insider has sensationally claimed.
Nick Pope – whose 21-year stint at the Ministry of Defence included three years on the UFO desk – told The Sun of the rules of engagement for the first time.
He claimed RAF pilots had fired at UFOs several times – but couldn’t take them out.
And he added: “We know of cases where the order has been given to shoot down – with little effect to the UFO.”
Mr Pope said the rules of engagement were drawn up after dozens of close encounters with suspect craft in British airspace.
RAF attacks on UFOs were “not automatic but happen when something in our airspace is deemed to be a threat”.
Mr Pope said the orders had been issued under the highly classified directive since the early 1980s.
He also claimed credible UFO witness statements had come from dozens of near misses with planes, police helicopters and RAF jets in recent years.
The MoD did not comment.
We’re just a joke they sometimes crack, they’ll get away with anything
The government is holding back, they won’t say a word
Now is that a light in sky or just a spark in my heart?
Can I accept this as evidence or will that tear the whole act apart?
Waiting for the ufos waiting for the ufos
