The following is based on interviews conducted with eyewitnesses:
Two witness looked up in amazement as a black, wedge-shaped craft flew over Putnoe, Bedford, Beds, UK towards the town.
The event took place at 3:15pm, on a bright blue-sky afternoon, with the triangle no more than 400 feet or so up in the air.
There was even a small private plane chasing the object about 100ft away, and only the sound from the trailing aircraft could be heard.
There were no lights above or below on the main body of the triangle, and only a faint one on it's flank.
It flew over in about 25 seconds and was gone, but about 15 minutes later, another object came into view, this time a definite manmade aircraft, but which had strange appendages attached on it's front... possibly some kind of radar device.
I interviewed the witnesses, and both were most perplexed by this object, never having seen anything like it before, one of whome has provided a very accurate drawing of what he saw.

Here is another case report submitted to BEAMS - possibly related to the aforementioned object .
"A few years ago myself and my sister witnessed a black triangle hovering near RAF Chicksands.
We witnessed it on a summers evening, it was just off the 603 near Henlow - there is a wind sock along the road; it was hovering about 50ft I could see the top of it.
It had a raised bit on the top, all black I could not see any glass! There was a light in the middle underneath and some smaller ones on each corner, with even smaller lights between them; there was no noise at all! It turned at one point .. It's a fast road to stop on, but I had my window open and I slowed down to about 5mph. As we went past I looked in the rear view mirror and I think it went up in the air! I kick myself because my camera was in the boot! This object is 100% the same as your 'famous black Bedford triangle', if you want to chat on the phone I would be glad to. Regards Dino."
