'Were UFO sightings the US Air Force testing secret stealth bomber?'

'A flurry of UFO sightings was troubling the spooks at the Ministry of Defence.
Hundreds had been reported, by everyone from RAF pilots over Scotland to a woman walking her dog in Norfolk.

But it wasn't the threat of an alien invasion that tormented defence officials during this period of overhead hyperactivity at the end of the 1980s.

Their theory was that our American allies had been building and testing stealth aircraft and spy planes without telling us.

In fact, in many cases they were probably right.

... Details of around 1,200 UFO sightings have come to light after seven files produced by the DI55 branch of the Defence Intelligence Staff from November 1987 to April 1993 were released by the National Archives.

... In one case, photographs taken of a UFO hovering next to an RAF jet over Scotland, were carefully examined after witnesses said they saw a mysterious large diamond-shaped object hanging in the air for about ten minutes before it ascended vertically at high speed.

In 1989 an oilrig worker trained in observing aircraft saw a 'perfect black triangle' escorted by two U.S. fighters.

Other incidents recorded in the files include the report of a woman who said she was approached by an alien with a 'Scandinavian-type accent' as she walked her dog near Norwich in 1989, and a spate of sightings in East London in 1993 explained by the presence of a brightly illuminated airship.

But military officials appear to have paid most attention to the sighting of the diamond-shaped object next to the RAF Harrier on the A9, north of Pitlochry in Scotland, on August 4 1990.

Two members of the public took colour photos and gave them to a newspaper which in turn passed negatives to the MoD.

The ministry responded to questions by saying that 'no definite conclusions' had been reached, but they believed the witnesses may have had a chance sighting of a spy plane called Aurora.'
