Under top secret Gov. orders RAF pilots have tried to BLAST UFO
Nick Pope,Under top secret Government directive RAF pilots have tried to BLAST UFOs
Nick Pope who came under criticism this week, when Colin Andrews criticized him for prepared distorted reports about UFOs & Crop circle when he was working as Ministry of Defence’s UFO desk for three years. Later this week Nick Pope even confess about same and told media that:
Some of the issues Colin highlights have arisen because the line between official and private interest - even within government, the military and the intelligence agencies - can be blurred. There are particular sensitivities and political difficulties when members of the Royal Family are involved.
I agree that the MoD has downplayed its interest and involvement in the crop circle issue, as it has with the UFO phenomenon. This has been the policy for many years and it's no secret that I had to play my part in this when I worked for the government.
But now he revealed the rules of engagement for the first time.He claimed RAF pilots had fired at UFOs on several occasions but failed to bring them down.
Mr Pope, said shoot down orders had been issued under the highly-classified directive since the beginning of the 1980s.He believes a pattern has emerged in incidents already publicised in this country and abroad.When a UFO is thought to be threatening a country’s airspace, the drastic action has been taken.
He said: There was a faction in the MoD who said ‘We want to shoot down a UFO and that will resolve the issue one way or another.He claimed credible UFO witness statements had come from dozens of near-misses with planes, police helicopters and RAF jets in recent years.
He said We know of cases where the order has been given to shoot down with little effect to the UFO?Mr Pope said the rules of engagement were drawn up after dozens of close encounters with suspect craft in British airspace.
RAF attacks on UFOs were not automatic but happen when something in our airspace is deemed to be a threat.In the case of UFOs, whether the object is causing a threat is very much a (pilot’s) judgment call.
Earlier this month UFO Blogger told how a UFO was believed to have torn off a 65ft blade as it hit a wind turbine in Conisholme, Lincs.
Back in December,2008 a donuts-shaped UFO was caught on camera near Conisholme wind farm a few weeks also before the wind turbine was damaged.
Where in Wind turbine ufo case Locals saw strange lights streaking towards the 290ft-tall power generator.Even Dale Vince, founder of Ecotrcity has a quite a bit to say about what his company thinks happened to its wind turbine.He indicates that what happened was a 'unique and isolated event".
But any alien battles with the RAF will be kept secret, according to Mr Pope, who worked as a civil servant at the MoD for 21 years.
He said: The public won’t know unless it comes down in a heavily-populated area.
He added: I do believe we will bring one down. We’re developing increasingly sophisticated weapons.Mr Pope also rubbished the MoD’s stance that UFOs pose no danger to the public, saying: I think that’s a line I wrote myself in the 1990s.But if they haven’t investigated, how do they know it poses no threat?
They will try to play it down by talking about flying saucers and little green men. But there are MPs and ministers and a faction of the MoD who do believe in UFOs. Now he is supporting Colin Andrews claim.
