Salisbury Plain, Wiltshire.
UFO Testimony by a Trained Military Pilot
In the summer of 2002, I was invited to a party at a large house situated deep in the rural countryside on Salisbury plain in the south of England. The house was miles from any other property and was effectively in the middle of nowhere. We had driven miles and miles through rural back road farm land to get to the house. There was no street lighting for what felt like more than ten miles, although we had travelled to the house in the middle of the afternoon, arriving at the house in the early evening. This place was surrounded by farm land and fields, the nearest town was about ten or more miles away from the house, so there was no light pollution at all and as the evening grew dark, people started to group on the large patio at the back of the house where there was a BBQ. As I stood with others in conversation I looked up at the stars as it was a beautiful warm summers evening and a crystal clear night.
The sky was clear and full of stars it was like having a front row seat looking out at the cosmos. There was around one hundred plus people at the party many of which were outside on the patio enjoying the BBQ. As I stood in a group talking, I recall being keen to just stop chatting and simply gaze up at the un obscured night sky. I am a trained Pilot and Ex-RAF Commissioned Officer: I also flew in the Airline industry for a number of years as well as military flying. I have gained thousands of hours flying over the years.
As I looked up at the clear night sky and detected a small white light travelling at a very high altitude and at a speed faster than any commercial aircraft. I was familiar with what a satellite looked like in the sky and had seen a number of them before. I knew that they were seen as a single light in the sky but they are flying at a constant speed and never turn in fact they are easy to spot and quite different to that I was seeing so I knew it was not a satellite: My initial thoughts at the time was that it might have been a fast jet I considered that it could have possibly been a US military fast jet such as a stealth bomber: However, I quickly concluded that it was most definitely not a UK fast jet aircraft for reasons that may become apparent as I explain what happened next. I also concluded that it was not a USAF fast jet as well. I Began to track the single white light from my two o 'clock position as I tracked the craft, it looked like a single light from the tail of a commercial aircraft yet there were no navigation lights and no anti-collision beacons or strobe lights.
I continued to track the “Aircraft ” or craft across the night sky until it reached my eleven o clock position. F ascinated by what I was seeing, I mentioned it to the other people I was standing with on the patio, who all looked up, but due to their lack of aviation understanding were unable to appreciate what they were looking at, which was at that time effectively a single white light travelling at high altitude and great speed without any form of navigation lights on it whatsoever.
However as the craft reached my 11 o'clock, I saw what looked to be a star in the sky around an inch or so below and an inch further away from the craft. I would have said it was approximately around five nautical miles to the right of the path of the first craft which I had been tracking. As the first craft approached the “star” like object, I was astonished to see the second light which had been relatively dim in the night sky as if it was a normal stationary starlight in the sky. surprisingly and totally unexpectedly suddenly burst into a massive bright white star like light illuminating a relatively large area of sky around its own vicinity which was again at high altitude which my aviation experience would suggest was in excess of 50,000 ft or FL500 power away at a tremendous speed, with the acceleration well beyond any military aircraft I have ever seen in the nine years of military aviation experience, which includes some fast jet flying and a total of twenty two years of aviation experience in.
As the first craft I had been tracking from my 2'oclock which had been travelling from my right to left and was now at my 11 o'c lock approached upon the second statuary light which had just burst into the bright light and powered away at tremendous speed. The first craft I had been tracking had almost reached the second craft when the second craft burst in to life and shot away. Moments later as in around five second later the first craft also burst in to a bright burst of light which again illuminating a relatively large area of the night sky around the crafts own vicinity and immediately accelerated away catching the second craft which had been the first craft I had seen burst in to a ball of bright light and accelerate away from the approaching first craft. The first craft caught up with the other one and together as if in formation the two craft simply powered away in a climbing attitude and continued to accelerate upwards out of the earth’s atmosphere.
Only two of the people I had shown the craft to from the beginning had bothered to watch it all happen as it was all extremely high up in the night sky and people were more interested in eating and chatting. After the event I commented on what we had seen and I was keen to discuss in much detail but without any interest from other guests. The subject was dropped and never discussed again. Though for me the experience of what I witnessed on Salisbury plain that night has never left me and it is as if it had taken place yesterday and has been a life changing experience which has convinced me that we are not alone and that we are being visited by an intelligence far greater than ours. I am totally convinced that what I saw was piloted by an intelligent life force.
