- Lord Hill-Norton, chief of the defence
staff in the Seventies, is convinced that a United States Air Force squadron
in Suffolk [on the Norfolk/Suffolk County border and 70 crow miles NNE
of London -- G¬ ] is tracking UFOs which may threaten Earth.
- "There's something fishy at the
base and I am puzzled," he told me. "I have asked a number of
questions about the base and never get a satisfactory answer."
- The Ministry of Defence did admit that
RAF Feltwell has a special US unit "tracking man-made objects in deep
- But it refused to answer Hill-Norton's
question about how many objects "remain unidentified and how many
of these were transmitting a signal" citing the need for secrecy.
- An MoD spokesman said: "We are entitled
to refuse certain information on topics which we consider to be sensitive."
- But he did admit that UFOs would be tracked
if they were spotted.
- "They need to catalogue everything
up in space," he added.
- Officially, the US 5th Space Surveillance
Squadron is part of Britain's early warning system to protect against missile
attack from space.
- But Lord Hill-Norton will not accept
that it is there purely to defend us against earthling enemies.
- "For a start, there are no man-made
objects in inter-stellar space. So I want to know what they are really
- "And I want to know what the Government
is doing about the UFO problem.
- "There are things flying about in
our atmosphere and we don't know what they are, who directs them or what
their purpose might be. We ought to know."
- Lord Hill-Norton believes that UFOs are
the product of "extra-terrestrial intelligences".
- He added: "There is overwhleming
evidence that there are physical objects in Earth's atmosphere and they
are not man-made."
