UFO News Article:
“Base in UFO mystery”

(North Wales Weekly News, Conwy, UK)

Sources: UFO Newsclipping Service, Plumerville, Arkansas and

The whole article (Page 11):
“RAF Staxton Wold played a key part in a UFO sighting off the East Coast, it has been revealed.

One of the most credible reports of a possible visit by extraterrestrials is one made by an RAF pilot and two officers at RAF Boulmer in Northumberland 30 years ago (1975).

The Information was released by the Ministry of Defence’s special UFO department under the Freedom of Information laws.

The files show that Flt Lt A M Wood reported ‘bright objects hanging over the sea’ and the closest object was ‘five times larger than a helicopter’. He said the object changed shape to become body-shaped with projections like arms and legs.

They [sic] objects were also seen on the Staxton Wold radar picture which is relayed to (RAF) West Drayton, near London.”

“The 1953 UFO Chronology”

Quote from the UFO report:
Fran Ridge:
This report is an on-going project, and it will take many months to get active links to cases all in place. Many sightings have no details and are those selected By Dr. James E. McDonald as those worthy of inclusion in this report as we locate them. Our thanks go to Rebecca Wise (Project Blue Book Archive), Dan Wilson, Brad Sparks (Comprehensive Catalog of Project Blue Book Unknowns) and Jean Waskiewicz, outstanding members of my team.

Jan. 16, 1953
Maj. Dewey Fournet presented his ‘motion study’ to the Robertson Panel. This study is significant and it is similar to the earlier 1948 ‘Estimate of the Situation’ and illustrates once again the reason why the Extraterrestrial Hypothesis was seriously considered. And as always, the study was not stopped as it went up, but was rejected at the top.
