Last month, it was reported that the British Government was going to release its last secret UFO files and now 15 out of 18 of them are available for public viewing. They are unfortunately not digitized yet so if you want to inspect them, you’ll have to take a trip to the National Archives at Kew, London.
The lack of digital copies has done nothing but excite conspiracy theorist that have been overblowing the quite lackluster release of documents provided by the Minister of Defence (MoD).
“No UFO sighting reported to [MoD] has ever revealed anything to suggest an extra-terrestrial presence or military threat to the UK,” Carl Mantell of the RAF‟s Air Command stated in a briefing to the Defence Minister in 2009. “There is no defence benefit in [MoD] recording, collating, analysing or investigating UFO sightings.‟
