Nick Pope worked for the British Ministry of Defense (MoD) for over two
decades, three of which were spent directing the UFO program. With the
recent release of Britain's classified files on UFO investigations,
address key misconceptions about the release as well as highlights a
few interesting UFO sightings, including those which were reported by
police officers, those tracked by radar, and one which nearly resulted
in a collision with a commercial aircraft.
Spurred by the French government's disclosure of it's UFO files in
2007, as well as by the need to move away from individual requests for
information on UFO reports, the British MoD began in May of 2008 to release their complete UFO caseload to the public. Since the
beginning of the publication, thousands of reports spanning from 1978 to 1992
can now be publically accessed via the internet. For the UFO
enthusiast, Pope provides specific websites and search words to
streamline the hunt for information. New files will be released every six months and there's no doubt that
Nick Pope will continue to share his insights.
