**Second batch of MOD UFO files can now be downloaded for free **

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.
