The UFO Sighting That Convinced A Government Minister
By Jasper Copping

One of the most tantalising ever accounts of an apparent
encounter with a UFO =96 deemed so credible it apparently
convinced a British minister =96 can be told for the first time.

It is one of the most tantalising ever official accounts of an
encounter with a UFO =96 deemed so credible it even convinced the
government minister who investigated it.

Now, for the first time, the sighting of a flying saucer by an
RAF fighter pilot and the subsequent high level inquiry it
prompted can be revealed.

The sighting occurred in 30 July 1952, when Flight Sergeant
Roland Hughes was on a training flight over West Germany in a de
Havilland Vampire FB9.

As he was returning to base, he reported being intercepted by a
"gleaming silver, metallic disc" which flew alongside his
aircraft before speeding off. The mystery object was also
detected by RAF radars on the ground, which recorded it
travelling at speeds far in excess of any known aircraft.

Hughes reported the sighting to his senior officers who sent him
to see Duncan Sandys, the then aviation minister, to brief him
personally.
