This is a potentially interesting one. Chris Rolfe solicited
offers of help on this List (03/03/07) but an email from me has
gone unanswered for 3 weeks, and the URL above takes you to a
page reading

"Not Found - The requested URL /F15sANDUFO.wav was not found on
this server"

none of which is very helpful.

[It works, as of this post --ebk]

Fortunately an FOI request was made independently by Dave
Clarke, who was able to tell me promptly that according to MoD
there is no record of military ATC involvement but that USAF
planes detected the object on onboard radar and made a number of
passes "on their own initiative", believing it to be football-
sized and moving with the wind. I understand that a second
request to MoD for the source of this information is pending.
