UFO News Article:
Merseyside Men Saw Strange Object”

26 August 1955
(Liverpool Echo, UK)


The whole article:
“A flying object spun through the air along the Mersey last night [25 August 1955], according to two people in different parts of the city. It was huge and cylindrical, strangely phosphorescent, and hovered for fully five minutes over the Pierhead.

Peter Wilson, 17-years-old builder, of 200 Queen’s Drive, Liverpool 14, was walking with his girl friend near the Clubmoor Cinema when he saw the saucer. ‘I was scared stiff,’ he told the Echo. ‘My girl friend was so startled she ran home.’

He thought the object was about 15 yards in diameter and was spinning 700 feet above the ground. ‘It seemed to be looking at something,’ he commented. At 10.45 p.m. it raced away in the direction of the Pierhead.

Meanwhile, when he was walking home, Mr. Eilton Fishgold, 4b Woolton Road, Birkenhead, said he saw a saucer hovering over the Pierhead at 11 p.m. ‘I was scared stiff. At first I couldn’t believe my eyes but it was there—a great big glowing thing spinning round all the time,’ he said this afternoon.”

The whole UFO case report:
Brad Sparks:
Aug. 21, 1955; Kelly, 7 miles N of Hopkinsville, Kentucky (BBU)
7, 8-11 p.m., 2:30-4:45 a.m. At about 7 p.m. Billy Ray Taylor went into the backyard of the Sutton farmhouse and saw a bright object from the SW [or actually about SSW about 210° azimuth from the direction of Fort Campbell U.S. Army base] then pass over and descend into a gully about 500 [300-600?] ft N of the farmhouse and about 35-40 ft lower elevation. Mrs. Glennie Lankford and 6 other adults [most Sutton family], plus 3 children (Charlton, Lonnie and Mary Lankford), saw two or more 3 ft tall gremlin-like creatures float down from trees and approach the house from the dark, which were shot at by rifle and shotgun fire without effect. At about 11 p.m. the entire group fled in terror in their two cars and drove at high speed into Hopkinsville to report the incident to the Police Dept. State police officer leaving the Shady Oaks restaurant 3 miles N of Hopkinsville in a car to respond to the call heard several meteor-like objects streaking over him sounding like artillery shells, and was able to see 2 in a series looking like meteors from the SW [or actually about S, from about 190° azimuth, headed towards Kelly from the direction of Fort Campbell and the TOP SECRET Armed Forces Special Weapons Project Site C, Clarksville Base, 36.665° N, 87.487° W, National Stockpile Site for nuclear weapons storage apparently recently including multi-megaton yield H­ bombs]. City, county, state and military police and reporters drove out to the Sutton farm to investigate from around 11:30 p.m. to 2 a.m. UFO entities returned at about 2:30 a.m. and were again shot at without effect, finally disappearing at about 4:45 a.m. (Davis-Bloecher 1978; Hynek UFO Rpt pp. 212-6; VallĂ©e Magonia 372; FUFOR Index)”

UFO Case Directory (RADCAT):
“RAF Mosquito Pursues Radar Target (BBU)
January 16, 1947
North Sea, 50 miles from Holland”

30 June 2009

The whole UFO case report:
Fran Ridge:
10:30 p.m. (GMT). RAF pilot of Mosquito pursued unidentified radar target showing efficient controlled evasive action at 22,000 ft speed equal or greater than Mosquito, headed W? towards Norfolk, Eng. (FOIA) This was five months before the Kenneth Arnold sighting and the beginning of the Wave of 1947, followed by the crash at Roswell in early July. The incident was also linked to another ‘X raid’ tracked by radar earlier that same day. An FBI document from July of 1947 quoted the Air Ministry case summary stating that: ‘no explanation has been forthcoming, nor has it been repeated.’ This information was not entirely accurate, because a very similar incident had occurred just 24 hours after the North Sea incident. As a direct result, Fighter Command immediately extended its night radar watch.

Dan Wilson:
At 11:30 at night in the North Sea an RAF Mosquito pilot picked up a strange object on radar 50 miles north of the coast of Holland. The UFO seemed to be taking evasive maneuvers when approached by the fighter aircraft. The UFO was pursued for 30 minutes until over the Norfolk, England coast, at which point the object darted away. (Source: APRO Bulletin, December 1977, p. 7). See report from Project Blue Book files below.

Jan Aldrich:
The U.S. got a full report on this which (Captain Edward) Ruppelt saw and summarized. The summary was in Hynek’s files now at CUFOS, Operation Charlie, which Martin Shough and Dave Clarke dug out of the UK archives. This impressive case involves more than one incident, and the British archives is missing some information. Apparently the Americans got a report on the incident including information that is now missing from the UK archives.”
