Mystery of the Black Triangles

If there is a UFO reality, then why has no one blown the whistle? Informants in the U.K. have been talking about UFO's and Flying Triangles because they see them every day. I have been a faithful subscriber to UFO rags from the U.K. for a long time. These magazines try to use a more down to earth approach as to which UFO's are extra terrestrial and which aren't. In the British UFO Magazines there is no question as to whether or not UFO's exist. In order to understand what I am trying to tell you, you need to understand why Ufology in the UK is commonplace, you need to realize Britain's UFO history. Britain has always been the center of "paranormal" anomalies. From strange structures, to ghosts, to intricate crop circles. With all of these strange things happening you'd think that there would be unlimited investigations. There are your amateurs and then there are some that are appointed. One man in particular is Nick Pope, who joined the British Ministry in 1985 and was involved in policy making during the Gulf War, and the Bosnian-Serb conflict. Pope was then moved in the summer of 1991. He was appointed to a new post at Whitehall Secretariat Air Staff, Department 2A. I guess you could call it the equivalent of the "X-files." As with any classic "I don't belong here" story Pope did not believe in the UFO hysteria, and was very skeptical about the Paranormal. After dealing with the reports from the "UFO" desk Pope was slowly changing his mind on the issue. After 3 years at the "UFO" desk Pope declared that UFO's were a reality. He concluded that there was plenty of evidence to prove their existence. Pope was officially supposed to investigate whether or not these strange aircraft posed a threat to the UK's defense. Unofficially He was expected to dismiss their existence. Pope decided it was up to him to tell the truth about UFO's. Pope claims that his peers and the department labeled him a loose cannon and found him to be very suspicious. They lost trust in him. But Pope stood by his story, analyzing all the data, and claiming that it all added it up to a case for the existence of UFOs. A lot of the M.O.D. workers began humming the Twilight Zone theme when ever he would walk into the room, and after the X-files made it to the UK they called him "Spooky." After all of the ridicule, and after claiming that he felt UFOs posed a major threat to our defense systems, Pope was moved in 1994 from the M.O.D. to the financial department. The thing that is most frustrating is despite Pope's entire candor, he is still bound by Britain's official secrecy act. So is what Pope saying fact or fiction? Apparently it's fact. UFO's are being seen in Britain Some say it can be explained, but Pope says that a technological threat of non-human origin exists. Some say it is Science fiction, Pope continues to investigate such claims. Even though it really isn't his job any more.

Since 1990 there have been over 4000 sightings of what is known as the "Flying Triangle" or "Silent Vulcan" Over Britain. In the early 90's there were a similar number over Belgium, France, Holland and Germany, with fighters being sent up to intercept this unknown craft. With people seeing aircraft "as big as a football field and hovering silently" to "hovering craft that shoot off silently." Another claim was the sighting of "a huge black triangle rising out of the water" it is one of Europe's most enduring waves of sightings. Nick Pope wrote a book about many of these sightings including one over several Army bases in one night. One of the more controversial cases is the Bentwaters -Woodbridge UFO case. The Bentwaters-Woodbridge bases are leased to the United States Airforce under NATO terms. The case is one of the creepiest ones I have ever heard. There were at least 30 witnesses who came forward to tell the story of what happened to USAF personelle and British Military in the Rendlesham forest between the two bases, in December of 1980.

The incident began when two USAF security personelle spotted unusual lights hovering over Rendlesham forest. The security staff was worried that a small plane was crashing in the heavily wooded area. According to Sergeant Larry Warren, who was stationed at Bentwaters, It looked like the plane hit and a fire was smouldering in the forest. A group of men set out to find the strange red glowing area. What the men came a upon was a triangular UFO. Airmen Steve Roberts and James Archer said that the UFO had a red light on top of it and blue and white lights at the middle and bottom. Archer then claimed he saw occupants inside the strange craft. He claimed that they did not appear human. There were also reports of Jeeps and several High-powered "Light all's" abruptly died. Sgts. Larry Warren and Adrian Bustinza said that the energy just drained out. Animals were going crazy, and the men mentioned a yellow mist in the air. There was another strange anomaly in the area away from the clearing . It was transparent, elliptical like a see through aspirin tablet. It then filled with a bright pulsating mist and it emitted a rainbow of coloured lights. There was film shot of the incident. And audio tapes made. However it was later confiscated and flown to Ramstein Airforce base in West Germany. Pentagon officials later claimed that some of the photos but not all were fogged.

Then there were stories of strange shadows that were cast on the craft moving out of synch with the soldiers. They knew it was their shadows, and blue lights would flash above their heads like some strange video game. For some of the soldiers it was the last thing they remember before waking up. Larry Warren says that he awoke with mud caked up to his knees. Warren says he was tested for radiation and was forced to sign a secrecy oath. He and others were then shown High-quality gun camera film of UFO events. One included the downing of a soviet MIG fighter by a flying saucer. Thirty men went through what some likened to a drug-induced nightmare. Remembering sequences that were lost or forgotten. One memory was that of Commander Gordon Williams communicating with silver suited greys.

Official reaction to this case was that it wasn't a threat to National Security. Which prompted British Investigators Jenny Randles and Ralph Noyes to call the reaction utter nonsense. If the collective testimony of thirty men were accurate then it would confirm UFO reality. It would also be nonsense if the testimony were false. It would mean that Nato security would have been entrusted to men who hallucinate. Either alternative would have been a severe threat to security.

Then a British science writer had a theory that what the men saw was the light from a Lighthouse on Orford Ness five miles away. This saved the day. Then residents reported that they had electrical interference and their animals were distressed, hardly any proof, Finally, documents were released in response to a 1983 freedom of information request. There were memos verifying the stories except for the Colonel Williams Alien encounter.

It was then suggested that it could have been the retrieval of Russian Space junk. But the compelling audiotape was released. The men were observing strange craft. The 18-minute tape is said to be edited, and spans through several hours. What happened between the edits is anyone's guess. The case was taken to J. James Exon, of the U.S. Senate armed services committee. After an investigation Exon concluded that there was no cover-up. Maybe he saw something that frightened him.

The Black Triangles still fly over the U.K., and more stories are being generated. Nick Redfern released a book called "A Covert Agenda." This book once again covers the subject of the British government's knowledge of the UFO Phenomena.. Jon Dyton a UK Representative of the S4 database interviewed Nick. Redfern believes that whereas the vast majority of UFO reports are not of extraterrestrial craft, a small minority are. He also believes that while there is no collusion between alien species and our governments. "It is safe to say that the Governments are well aware of their (alien) existence. They know that something strange is going on, however it could be quite possible that a lot of Governments do not know exactly what it is. Only a few may know." He also can state as fact that there is enough evidence to show that there have been two or three occasions in the UK where Roswell type events have taken place. Many times the RAF has attempted interceptions of UFOs. UFO reports of the black triangle type date back to 1964. Video has been taken, photos also, but we are no nearer the who what and why. One of the strangest things about it is the fact that if it is a secret stealth project, It should be labelled "hidden in plain sight". The Triangle seems obsessed with hovering over Motorways, Nuclear Power Stations and graveyards. They often flash a brilliant light on the gravestones (or on empty fields) as if looking for something. Sightings quietened down last year but are now picking up and new video has been taken in daylight.

So the Black triangles are mysterious aircraft flying over Britain. Some may see them as a threat, even an extra terrestrial threat. However the new Ufology tells us that sometimes we should not always jump to the extraterrestrial conclusion with regards to UFOs. From the time of Kenneth Arnold until now Ufology has grown up. Colleges are beginning to accept UFO existence, but they will not go out on a limb and state that extra terrestrials are piloting these craft. There is still that small percentage that might lend itself to the outrageous. But we should not let that get in the way of a true investigation.

The Media will find ways to twist a UFO story. They will come to the conclusion themselves that when a person uses the word UFO that they are meaning, a craft with little grey or green men inside. New ufologists know that this is not the case. It is the old misconceptions that hurt a serious investigation. It is the holding on to old myths that jeopardise true science and analysis. Some will find a hidden meaning in the simplest explanations. To toy with a Freud quote "Sometimes a cigar shaped craft from another world is not necessarily a cigar shaped craft from another world." Tim Mathews is the "Angry young man" of british ufology. He has upset the cosy state that the British scene had got into the post Bufora/Alien Autopsy film and has earned a fast reputation for straight talking and cutting through much of the malaise the scene found itself in the last year. He believes that many sightings can be explained by secret aircraft and suppressed military tests. Mr Mathews exposes a world of political manoeuvring by the authorities to protect financial and political interests. He has exposed the existence of secret planes from year's back, which would be considered "cutting edge" today. Mathews believes that giving the label of an extraterrestrial craft to a UFO is premature, and has spent a lot of his time showing that Military Technology is the most likely answer behind the enigmatic UFO. His research has shown that a lot of flying disc and triangle technology comes from Nazi Germany. It has always been the objective of designers of aircraft to find a craft that can ascend and decend vertically. The craft would have to be circular without wings. Over time we have seen these craft and attributed their remarkable capabilities to some extra-terrestrial intelligence.

To me the very thought of an alternative to the extraterrestrial explanation is just as intriguing. We must be careful not to eagerly romanticise UFO events. Tim Mathews is correct in stating that it is premature to label an unknown craft an extra-terrestrial vehicle. Back in August of 1998 Ground Zero had a struggle in trying to get out a story of what appeared to be a UFO that may had crashed or was shot down over Tracy California. The overwhelming evidence suggested that this strange anomaly was quite possibly an aircraft of some kind. This aircraft threatened Los Angeles and San Francisco. The craft travelled at speeds topping Mach 60. If the mainstream media had done their homework they would have found alternative ideas as to what this "unknown" was. Since it was a UFO it was already prematurely labelled. This started the downplaying outright. A "meteor" was the verdict given. The words "probably" and "definitely" were used to describe the meteor. I have been somewhat unfair to the media for downplaying the event. What other choice did they have? The UFO was reported and soon people were awaiting the arrival of the space elders. Everyone wanted to downplay it without the facts, because a vast majority of people think that everyone in Ufology considers a UFO to be an extra-terrestrial spacecraft.

What if it was a missile heading towards Los Angeles. Or an as of yet unknown secret plane? What people forget is that missiles can be fired at populated areas and wipe them out. So while everyone is staring at the strange meteor coming out of the sky, they fail to realise that the "meteor" could have a warhead attached to it and that it would also deliver a mushroom cloud. I am not saying that the Tracy case was a missile, but look at the times we live in. Terrorists, secret governments, organised subversives, can get their hands on money and technology and create things that can only be dreamed of in the movies. Tim Mathews is correct. Use good judgement. The UK Triangles are very real. There is evidence and eyewitnesses to validate their existence. These are the times where the truth will be revealed. We cannot risk losing the ability to inform when a group we rely on for information still hangs on to speculation, without looking over all of the evidence. Remember, while the media can't dictate how we are to think, they certainly can set the agenda on what we think about. For the majority of the media UFO's will remain an issue to be avoided. The reason? No one wants to look stupid. Reporters consider themselves conventional thinkers. Ego machines that want to convince the world that their idea is the one true fact. I should know, I do it all the time. I feel however that I am justified in saying this. The facts are there, the witnesses will not keep quiet, and there is no mystery to a person with an open mind who uses wisdom.

Do Flying Triangles Have Underwater Bases Around Our Coast?

The arrival of a Flying Triangle UFO craft in Missouri and Kansas in 1980, caused concern and wonderment, as hundreds of witnesses, including policemen, watched a huge craft displaying a triangular pattern of lights, move slowly over the countryside for a period of four hours. It was seen over 22 towns and at one stage the enormous craft appeared to be dropping what a local truck driver described as satellites, which appeared to be round and emitted a bluish glow. The whole event was tracked on radar during the four hour period and must rate as one of the most awesome sightings to date. One witness described the Flying Triangle as being "as big as a football field." This event was the first indication of their presence, but within a decade, Flying Triangular craft were to be reported world wide. During January 1981, a huge boomerang shaped craft was seen over Arizona, with one witness proclaiming the object "was bigger than several football fields!" The Vshaped craft was later reported over New York State and Connecticut in March 1983. Once again the craft was described as being "as big as two football fields" and this time, the craft flashed its lights on and off as though trying to attract attention. The next major event was the Belgian Flap, when huge triangular craft visited this small country during the period 1989/90. The SOBEPS Group (Societe Belge d Etudes des Phenomenes Spatiaux), were inundated with hundreds of reports during this period. Such was the efficiency of their organization that the Belgian Air Force asked for their co-operation and assistance! With SOBEPS members being widespread throughout the country, they were able to identify Flying Triangles in their locality and report their position to the Belgian Air Force.

In this manner, the SOBEPS members acted as trained observers for the Belgian Air Force. At one stage, two F16 interceptor fighters were placed at their disposal, to be directed to various parts of the country where the FTs were reported! This co-operation resulted in the F16s intercepting a number of the Flying Triangles, although the aircraft were completely unable to match the speed and manoeuvrability of the FTs, as subsequent cockpit radar film footage showed.

There had meanwhile been a number of isolated reports over the UK, but on the 26th September 1993, a huge Flying Triangle craft arrived over Bakewell in Derbyshire. Many residents of this small town were to share in the experience of watching a huge black craft, slowly and silently flying over their town. With a bright white light on each corner of its triangular shape and numerous smaller lights running along the edges of the craft, the FT flew low and at an estimated speed of only 30 mph. (A witness driving his vehicle at 40 mph overtook it!) The triangular craft the performed several slow manoeuvres over the town before returning to its original course and flying slowly out of sight. It was just a few months later, on January 6th 1995, that a British Airways Boeing 737 aircraft was buzzed by a glowing triangular craft as it approached Manchester Airport! This was the forerunner of a Flying Triangle invasion, as the FTs then began to arrive in force.

There were 52 FT incidents recorded in and around the city of Derby from December 1994 to May 1995. These included hovering illuminated craft and in one instance, a huge triangular craft was observed hovering over one of the main traffic islands (Spider Bridge) on the A5111 circular road. Numerous witnesses were able to sketch and describe the FT craft in detail. The reports include FT craft hovering and shining down white beams of light onto the countryside at night. Lights have been reported on numerous occasions, but it seems highly unlikely that they are searchlights as such. Our new Doppler Radar technology enables present day satellites to look down through any weather onto the ground below and we presume that the FTs are the product of a far more advanced technology. The purpose of the FT searchlight beam could be something else, but what? Witnesses have described the FTs white beam of light as sometimes "ending in mid air, like a fluorescent tube." As the number of FT reports have increased, a pattern of behaviour has begun to emerge. The FT craft appear to be coming in over the East coast of England and flying slowly across the countryside to various destinations including a number of Nuclear Power Stations, before returning back out to sea a few hours later.

Statistics from the Project FT database, under the discerning direction of Victor J. Kean have shown the following:

1995 - TOTAL FT REPORTS - 1797 of which 476 were observed over Nuclear Power Stations.

1996 - TOTAL FT REPORTS 1437 of which 988 were observed over Nuclear Power Stations.

1997 - TOTAL FT REPORTS - 1339 of which 1242 were observed over Nuclear Power Stations.

(NB - Figures for 1996 and 1997 are still being compiled and do not include associate spheres.)

The latest information from the Essex UFO Research Group under the able leadership of Ron West, (sadly no longer with us) (one of thirty groups operating under Project FT), states that since 1995, there have been reports of FT craft being seen entering and leaving the sea off the East coast near Lowestoft. There have also been 25 reports of lights seen moving under the surface of the sea in the same area. Could FTs have an undersea base somewhere along this coastline? Certainly, similar underwater activity has been reported from various parts of the world.

One startling coincidence has recently come to light and that is the number of references made to the subject of underwater bases by Larry Warren in his book Left At East Gate. The book deals primarily with the UFO incident in Rendlesham Forest, which took place in late December 1980, but then Larry Warren then goes on to reveal a further event. It appears that after the Rendlesham Forest incident, he got himself into trouble with the authorities by telephoning his mother about the UFO landing. He was subsequently ordered to go to a certain parking lot on the base where he would be met by a dark blue sedan car. When Larry arrived at the parking lot, he saw the car. As he entered into the vehicle, he remembered a greenish glow and then by all account, lost consciousness. He later recovered to find himself in an underground complex under the Woodbridge base, where he learnt from a black uniformed guard that it was part of a tunnel complex that led to the North Sea (p61). Larry Warren was then taken into a strange darkened glass room, where he was contacted by a telepathic alien figure, partly hidden by a glowing screen.

Larry then learnt that he was in an underground complex that had been built in the 1940s. The complex contained many aliens, with their support personnel; Larry went on to state, "The crafts they travelled and entered and exited via an extensive tunnel system. One exit was a mile off Lowestoft, Suffolk another, near Orford Key." If Larry's encounter with the alien is true and not a hallucination, could it mean that the aliens are controlling the Flying Triangle craft that have been reported disappearing into the sea off Lowestoft? If there is an underground facility at the Woodbridge air force base, does it have tunnels leading to the North Sea? Larry Warren claims that it does *. His co-writer Peter Robbins states, "It is quite an amazing aspect of Left At East Gate and one I am convinced is real though what REAL means has yet to be established".

The latest information received indicates that there is intense UFO activity along the East Coast, particularly near Lowestoft and strange things are still happening in the vicinity of Rendlesham Forest! Just what is going on? * Two independent sources have recently confirmed, that not only does a tunnel system exist below Woodbridge, but it is joined to the nearby Bentwaters base and is part of an extensive tunnel system throughout England. We believe that a tunnel complex was built along this coast in the 1940s and we can only speculate that it was probably extended in total secrecy during the recent Cold War period. (O.F. March 1998)

1989-Petit Rechain, Belgium. One of the most famous UFO pictures ever taken. The photographer, to my knowledge, still remains unnamed. Taken on an April night during a well known "wave," the photo very clearly shows a triangle-shaped object with lights. One of the best proofs of UFOs we have. Original photo was too dark to show object outline, and had to be lightened. Many of the Belgian objects were filmed, but negatives were blank, which indicated to researchers that either electromagnetic or radioactive anomalies were present.
1990-Wallonia, Belgium-This photograph was part of the Belgian Wave of 1989-1990. Taken by J.S. Henrardi on June 15, 1990. Mr. Henrardi released all copyright ownership to the photograph in 2003, making it available for public use. The object very closely resembles the Petit Rechain triangle (above), also part of the Belgium wave. The triangles were reported by hundreds of witnesses during the wave over Belgium.
1997-Phoenix, Arizona. One of the most publicized UFO events in history. First observed in a hexagram pattern at about 7:30 PM over the Superstition Mountains area east of Phoenix, the characteristic 8+1 formation of amber orbs was next seen in two separate arc patterns with "trailing lights" over the Gila River area at about 9:50 and again at 10:00 at the southern edge of Phoenix, were they were seen by thousands and videotaped by a handful who had camcorders close enough at hand to catch the fleeting minutes of their displays. Objects seen were described as ovoid and also triangular.
2002-Glascow, Scotland. The photographer said he took the picture at about 10:00 P.M. in Glasgow, Ayrshire, Scotland. He said: "At around 10pm 2 months ago I was looking out my window (I was actually looking for my cat that had ran out the door) when I saw this strange thing in the sky as soon as I seen it I just grabbed my digital camera and took a picture... after I took the picture I turned round to give the camera to my girlfriend... Looked back and it was gone... There was no noise just total silence. P.S. the pic isn't great my hands were a bit shaky."
2002-Las Cruces, New Mexico. Taken on October 5, 2002. Witness stated: I took 4 pictures of the mountains to the west of Las Cruces, NM. The camera was a Canon G2 digital. The last shot taken at 4:49 pm was enlarged after downloading to a computer. Only then were the images of 2 objects noticed in the sky. One in the upper left was disk-shaped (enlargement showed it to be triangular) and appeared metallic in luster. A second object, below and to the right of the first, was apparently much smaller and/or further away. A previous shot taken 2 minutes earlier showed no objects.
2003-Wisconsin-Photographer was taking photos of Mars, which was rising early on 01-08-03. Mars was close to Venus, and the witness took several photographs. He was not happy with his first photos, because of the cloud cover. So, he took a few more snaps, and just before calling the session over, he noticed a slow moving object, fairly bright to the naked eye. He took a couple of photos of it, and was surprised later when he reviewed the photos. What he captured on film was a definite triangle shaped object. Taken at 7:18 AM.
2005-Kaufman Co. Texas. February 9. Taken by videographer extraordinare lawwalk. Two red lights going east at not too fast a clip. Looked like two horizontal lights side by side at first with no noticeable flashing lights which caught my attention plus I didn't hear any sound from it. As I zoomed in on it, it shows to have three lights in a triangle shape. I got about thirty seconds or more of it before it went behind my house. I'm not real good at this night time discerning of what some of these lights are, because, heck you can't see the shape, could be anything.
2005-Louisiana. March 4. My co-worker’s 13-year old son was in his back yard in Westwego, LA, taking a picture of the sunset. When he downloaded his pictures to his computer he noticed a spot in the top center of the photo (first photo). When you enlarge the area you see a triangle with lights on each tip (second photo). If you look even closer, you can see a black dot to the right and above the triangle (close-up of this in third photo). Westwego is directly across the Mississippi River form New Orleans.
2005-Puerto Rico-The following is a preliminary report of this event in Puerto Rico -- the flight of a large triangular UFO over Puerto Rico. More witnesses to this sighting are coming forward, since there were more people on the avenue when the event took place. We would like any witnesses living in Puerto Rico's Carolina and Urb. Los Angeles districts to please phone us at the following numbers in order to continue our research. At this time only one person has photographed the object, but we are aware that more people saw it, including administrative personnel from the [Luis Munoz Marin International] Airport. Tel.787-821-1671 and 787-764-3206
2009-South Carolina-03-16-09-A UFO Casebook exclusive. The witness was sitting outside waiting for the mailman, when he saw a black triangle in the skies above him. He was able to take three excellent, clear, photographs of the object. He used a Konica Minolta-DiMage Z20 camera. See full report and more photographs at Three Clear Photographs Taken of Triangular UFO over South Carolina. source: www.ufocasebook.com
