Fighter Jets chase UFO down the M5

It must be true because it is in the Sun newspaper.
The alledged fighters look a bit F/A-18 ish to my unskilled eye.

If you were chasing this UFO down the M5 perhaps you could shed a bit of light on the matter

Well it proves my theory that if ever we were invaded by aliens, we'd rely on the Americans anyway. Where were our hugely expensive Typhoons?

Nice to see he kept filming until the jets arrived on station - either the flew right past or there was one heck of a battle

What skillfull use of the camera.

To zoom in & focus almost immediately on two fighters takes a fair bit of skill. Pity the continuity lets this scam down, as the fighters would have passed the "object" seconds after he panned back to the it.

We really give them far too much credibility by even having a thread about it!

(No offence intended to Navy_Adversary of course)

Computer generated crap just look at the two trucks at the start then listen to the traffic passing by! M5 was strangely quiet

It's very poor CG. The blacks are wrong, ditto noise, motion blur, lighting and the colours are too uniform. When was the last time anyone saw trucks and shipping containers that clean and shiny, with no rust or crap in the drivers cab?

If Nick Pope thinks it's convincing, he needs to take a visit to a well known high street opticians.

Looks like the Jupiter 2 to my trained eye.
No, it's obviously Marvin the Martian.

Clearly faked by Gordon Brown to distract from the real issues! Or in his case The Big Issue which he'll be selling in a few weeks time.

Since the MoD has decided not to bother with UFO report investigation any more (they can't afford it), this was probably some mate from Sirius popping down the M5 towards Box to visit his chums....

I wonder what those people in those black ca.....arrggghhh.....

Are there ever any sharp pictures of UFOs? (Of course, their anti-gravity drive distorts their image).

They look to me like a couple of F15s on a downwind leg.

"anti-gravity drive", could this have been derived from the anti gravity paint that was being developed the early Harriers?

I've been a UFO, does that count?

The Lancashire UFO Society decided my jet with malfunctioning reheat and lights, around dusk, was from another world. Whilst some who know me would agree, the nav was upset.

and they're F15s and a CGI
