A Close Encounter In Norfolk Road

A researcher is trying to unravel a Huntingdonshire UFO mystery
that has just been uncovered after more than 30 years.

It took place in November, 1976, in the skies above Huntingdon.

A man, who gave his address as Norfolk Road, had been out
walking his dog when he spotted an object in the sky. According
to a letter, it was to be his 'close encounter'.

UFO researcher John Hanson, 61, has uncovered the letter, which
was sent to the Ministry of Defence, detailing the unidentified
flying object experience.

"It seems this gentleman had been taking his dog for a walk in
the Sapley Playing Fields area at about 6.20am on November 5,"
Mr Hanson said. "As he made his regular walk, he came across a
most unusual object hovering above the ground with the letters
VAWCON marked on the side."

Mr Hanson, a retired police officer, claims that an RAF
investigator was dispatched from RAF Wyton to interview the man
about the sighting.

The man, who only wished to be identified as Dave, was said to
have told the official: "I saw a dome-shaped structure with
coloured lights on the top, hovering above the playing field. It
had a telescopic probe which appeared from its metallic dome
structure. I was petrified and ran home."

The man also drew a sketch of the craft.

The documents have only come to light recently, following
investigations by Mr Hanson, who lives in Worcestershire.

Mr Hanson, who has been researching the paranormal since his
retirement from the police force in 1995, said: "This case is
one of the most unusual I have discovered during my
investigations. I've got an open mind about the existence of
aliens but there does seem to be lots of evidence - and a lot of
hoaxes as well.

"I would be delighted to hear from any Hunts Post readers who
might be able to shed some light on the incident or help me find
the man involved."

George Robbins, 77, chairman of the Norfolk Road Residents
Association, has been living in the road since 1973, but
believes it has always been UFO-free.

"I used to know the chap involved but I can't recall anything
about a UFO sighting," he said. "UFOs aren't much of a concern,
to be honest. We've got more problems with parking and

A police spokesman added: "We do get some calls about UFOs. We
had one last Christmas from a woman in Fenland who had seen
bright lights above her house.

"We wondered whether it might have been Santa in his sleigh."

There was another report of a UFO sighting on the Oxmoor in
1999, by a resident claiming to have seen a dark shape fly over
his house.

The object was described as 'an equilateral triangle with the
top cut off'. No action was taken.
