I agree. The MoD's 'no defence significance' assessment of UFO
sightings is only meaningful if based on proper investigations.
Otherwise, it's nothing more than guesswork and assumption.

Again, I agree. The flight safety issue should be of interest
and concern to everyone, whatever their beliefs on UFOs.

One of Project Condign's most intriguing recommendations reads
"No attempt should be made to out-manoeuvre a UAP during
interception". Another recommendation states "At higher
altitudes, although UAP appear to be benign to civil air-
traffic, pilots should be advised not to manoeuvre, other than
to place the object astern, if possible".

Best wishes,
