Welcome to B.E.A.M.S.

Founded in 1991, our society consists of a
team of active reporters and field investigators who
factually gather, study and disseminate evidence relating to Earth Mysteries, (e.g. Ley Lines, Terrestrial Energies and Ancient Site Anomalies), Strange Aerial Happenings, (e.g. Unidentified Flying Objects or UFOs), and The Paranormal, (e.g. Spirit and Psychic Phenomena).

Jan 6 1995: UFO Had Near-Miss With Boeing 737 Over Manchester Airport 

A ''near miss'' between a Boeing 737 airliner approaching Manchester Airport and a UFO was investigated by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).

The pilots of British Airways flight 5061 reported the incident as they flew over the Pennines on route from Milan on January 6 1995.

Captain Roger Wills and co-pilot First Officer Mark Stuart both saw a lit object fly down the right-hand side of the aircraft at a high speed from the opposite direction, a CAA report revealed.

The men were able to track the object through the right-hand windscreen and side window, having it in sight for about two seconds.

Manchester Air Traffic Control recorded no known traffic in the vicinity on radar.

In files released by the Ministry of Defence (MoD) and National Archives, correspondence reveals the MoD's take on the incident, following requests for details from the public.

In a letter dated April 1996, an unidentified MoD official said: ''With regards to the airmiss reported by the British Airways pilots approaching Manchester Airport on January 6 1995, I can confirm that as a matter of routine the MoD was notified about the pilots' report by the Civil Aviation Authority shortly after the incident occurred.

''At the time I discussed the matter with the departmental air defence experts who confirmed that they were not aware of anything which would indicate a matter of defence significance associated with the sighting, or any evidence that the UK's air defences had been compromised.

''In the absence of such evidence, MoD interest in the sighting has long since ceased.''

Elsewhere in the 6,000 pages of files released, are accounts of an encounter between a UFO and an airliner near Glasgow Airport in December 1996.

White and red flashing lights were seen by pilots of an aircraft, at the same level - roughly 7,500 feet.

In April 1997, the crew of an Aer Lingus flight on route from Dublin to Amsterdam spotted an UFO.
