Posted by dandare on October 20, 2008

The MOD has released the second batch of UFO files (the 1st was in May 2008 ), consisting of 19 files (800.8mb in all) , and available to download from the National Archives . Please try to download these as soon as possible, as they will not stay free for long: the last batch in May was available for free for a month only.

It also has a highlights guide, * videocast (i have put this in below) and background material also for you to have a look at. The files cover the years 1986 – 1992. 

 For a deeper understanding of these files please see  DI55 document by uk-ufo.org   (especially on how MOD is structured). For some more background information on why the MoD decided to release these Files to the Public, please see here

* The videocast from the national Archives can be seen below:


Also i have addded a BBC Radio Leeds talk with UFO DATA Magazine editor, Russell Callaghan, about the UFO file release (dated 20th october, 2008 at 7.40am) .

Below you can see national and local coverage of the MOD UFO files, with many covering the same incidents (i have not given all the links possible, as many repeat the same things, or are exactely the same article). I think it gives you a flavour of what is out there in the media; some good some not so good. All the articles below are from today, 20th october, unless mentioned otherwise.

    So there’s like hundreds of planets right, in a galaxy, a solar system, and theres trillions of planets solar systems galaxys out there, and were the only one with intellegent life on it? That my friend is bullshit, people who believe that we are the only intellegent life in the whole universe – unlimited space – are just plain blind. We are just 1 planet, we aren’t even a dot on space, we are nothing in the world really, a black hole could kill us, our environment, ourselves (war), a comet, disease or aliens. It is quite worrying, but interesting, that there’s so many sightings, even more recently of UFO’s, from a logical view if we were the only planet of this kind around, wouldn’t they be observing us a lot more? Wouldn’t they be trying to make contact with us and interact? Remember our technology is basically caveman technology to them. From a logical point of view they could want or be doing a number of things, studying us, they could of killed us if they wanted to, that’s obvious, but they haven’t ! Only good things can come from these things in the longrun – hopefully, they could of rinsed our planet of resources or anything if they wanted to, my opinion is that they are studying us, have been for a long time, and will continue to for who knows how long – before we see some real communication.

    Another theory which has been prodded a lot is secret german or russian aircrafts, there was evidence of them constructing aircrafts like this a long time ago, maybe they finished building them and we should all start panicing? Unlikely, but who knows? It’s just another known theory.

    Just think if the government released everything then religion would be finished and the planet would go into chaos, we are only allowed to see the small picture, but for a valid reason! 🙂
