The Truth Is Out There... UFO Expert Nick Pope Talks About Aliens
By Nick Pope

I've been involved with the subject of UFOs since 1991, but
unlike most people with this interest, this didn't result from
my having a sighting and it wasn't a hobby - it was my
government job! I worked for the Ministry of Defence for 21
years, from 1985 to 2006. I had a varied and enjoyable career,
but by far my most bizarre MoD job was one that I did from 1991
to 1994, when my responsibilities included researching and
investigating UFOs.

The MoD's UFO project dates back to the Fifties and the
wonderfully-named Flying Saucer Working Party. This had been set
up in 1950 by MoD's Chief Scientific Adviser, the great radar
pioneer Sir Henry Tizard, who said that UFO sightings should not
be dismissed without first carrying out some sort of proper
scientific investigation.

In fact, the Working Party's conclusions were sceptical. Their
final report - issued in 1951 - concluded that UFO sightings
were misidentifications, hoaxes or delusions and they
recommended that no further investigations be carried out. But
in 1952 the MoD was reluctantly dragged back into the subject
after a wave of sightings during a large NATO exercise, where
UFOs were seen by numerous RAF pilots, and tracked on radar,
performing extraordinary speeds and manoeuvres.
