UFO Mystery At RAF Lakenheath

Mystery surrounds claims that jets from RAF Lakenheath were
called to intercept a UFO.

UFO experts claim to have a recording which they have posted on
the internet as proof that London Military Air Traffic Control
contacted a flight of US Air Force

F-15s from the base, after a UFO was picked up on their radar on
January 12.

But air traffic control denies making the call =96 and RAF
Lakenheath will not comment without having more detail over the
alleged incident.

Steve Johnson, features writer for UFO Data Magazine, said: "We
are still looking into it and we have made a Freedom of
Information request to the Ministry of Defence and have also
contacted RAF Lakenheath =96 but they haven't got back to us yet."

The magazine and UFO Monitors East Kent are analysing an audio
file picked up by radio enthusiasts purporting to be a call made
by London Military Air Traffic Control to a crew of F-15s flying
out of RAF Lakenheath.

They claim it tells the American airmen to intercept an unknown
target at 3,000 to 4,000ft.

The F-15s get a radar lock on the target and make a 'pass' at
17,000ft and then again at 17,700ft.

Pilots described the black rock like object as unlike any
aircraft they have ever seen.

"One pilot was heard to say to another: 'Did you see that?' And
the other replied: 'Yes, but I don't want to talk about it,"
said Chris Rolfe, of UFO Monitors East Kent.

It is also claimed that the object occasionally appeared to come
to a complete halt.

UFO monitors are unable to give a location or a time for the
incident, saying only that it happened in the afternoon. The
base itself said it was unable to look into the incident without
these details.

A spokesman for London Military Air Traffic Control said: "I've
spoken with both the civil and military supervisors at London
Control. Neither has any record of an intercept request on or
around January 12 =96 and intercept requests are recorded =96 so I
cannot verify this account."
