New UK-UFO Government Files

The following just in from Dave Clarke in the UK:

"From Sunday 22 March 2009 a third collection of UK MoD UFO files can be downloaded from The National Archives website:

"Visitors to the website can download a highlights guide, a podcast and an updated background briefing I have prepared as consultant to The National Archives on the ongoing UFO files release programme.

"'This tranche consists of seven files containing more than 2000 pagesof material. Six of the files include UFO reports received by the MoD's Defence Intelligence branch DI55 between 1987 and 1993.

"During this period MoD received 1200 individual UFO sighting reports.

"One incident that remained unexplained involves a set of colour photographs taken in Scotland during 1990. These show a diamond-shaped UFO apparently shadowed by Harrier jets.

"A detailed list of highlights from the files and discussion of the key stories contained therein can be found on my blogger page:

"Media coverage of the story will follow the lifting of the TNA press embargo at 0001 hrs GMT on Sunday, 22 March 2009."
