Below: Video of Another Witness to This Event - David Kingston, Former RAF Man.
Two Lynx helicopters from nearby Portland Naval base, were scrambled to intercept; as they approached, the UFO suddenly ascended to about 60,000 feet... in the blink an eye! 'Frame-by-frame analysis of the video has also revealed some small, anomalous spheres flying close to the object.'
So, is this the best daylight footage ever?...showing a structured, metallic UFO?
Many have claimed that the video was a prank, so, Rod Dickinson, (the camerman), was traced and contacted by email, asking him the question outright... and this is his reply;
'Thanks for your mail. I did take the footage some 10 years ago. For what it is worth it is not a hoax - at least one other person I met saw the thing while I was filming it. I think others saw it too. Obviously I don't think it's an alien spacecraft/ufo.' (data obtained from abovetopsecret.com)
Still frame from video
Even with certain negative factors working against the footage, such as the various accusations of trickery which are across the net, I still considered this video interesting enough to warrant the effort involved in restoration. (Kenneth John Parsons - BEAMS Chairman/Founder)
