The UK Department of Defense has blocked the planned release of a dossier detailing the famous UFO incident.
Back in August 1990, two tourists walking in the Scottish Highlands near Calvine, Pitlochry, witnessed a strange rhombic object hovering over the nearby landscape.
They managed to take pictures of the UFO before it flew away at significant speed.
Eager to share what they saw, the couple contacted the Scottish Daily Record and shared both their story and the photos they took.
Then the journalists shared the pictures with the UK Department of Defense.
It turned out that the tourists weren’t the only ones who saw the object – the pilot of the RAF Harrier jet also witnessed the phenomenon – again near Calvine – after being forced to investigate this UFO.
Military intelligence officers sent these images to JARIC, which is the Joint Air Intelligence and Reconnaissance Center.
It is the UK’s military center of excellence when it comes to image analysis. These intelligence officers concluded that these photographs were real and that no one had the slightest idea what they were.
Thirty years later, the dossier of the Ministry of Defense, including photographs, was scheduled for declassification and publication, which is typical of such documents.
However, the release has now been postponed for another 50 years for unknown reasons.
According to the 30-year rule, the file was supposed to be released on January 1, 2021, but if the ministry gets it, it won’t be released until January 1, 2072 – an 82-year closure.
“By the time the world gets to see the file, the two witnesses will be dead. It is crazy. What are the authorities trying to hide?”
A complaint lodged under the Freedom of Information Act about the National Archives withholding the documents is now under investigation by the UK information watchdog, the Information Commissioner’s Office.
The National Archives refused to comment further. The MOD refused to comment at all.
