MoD release Ulster UFO sightings

REPORTS of unidentified flying objects in Northern Ireland have been released by the Ministry of Defence.

The government department has released the information to the National Archives and have made 19 files available online for public viewing.

One of these files refers to separate reported sightings in Northern Ireland.

In one instance, correspondence by the Ministry of Defence refers to three reported sights of UFOs at Aldergrove in December 1989 and January 1990.

Another refers to an alleged sighting near Glenavy, also in 1989.

Officials conclude in this instance, while admitting an investigation was necessary, that due to no UFO activity being reported elsewhere in the UK, the person concerned "probably witnessed the arrival or departure of the helo's (helicopters) at Aldergrove".

The 19 files cover the six-year period from 1986 to 1992.

Almost 200 files will be made available by the MoD over the course of the next four years.

Nationally, it was revealed a passenger jet bound for Heathrow in 1991 had a close altercation when a brown missile-shaped object hurtled towards it near Kent.
