RAF Lakenheath - UFO

On Friday, January 12th 2007, London Military Air Traffic Control contacted a
flight of US Air Force F-15s out of RAF Lakenheath, Suffolk, UK, to intercept an
unknown target they had picked up on radar at 3000 to 4000ft altitude.
The F-15s, call-sign Gator, went to investigate, and got a solid radar-lock on the
unidentified target.

They made two passes and passed the object, which was at 17,000ft on the first
pass and then 17,700ft on the second pass. They described it as black in colour
and stated that it was not a bird and unlike any aircraft they had ever seen.
One pilot was heard to say to another: "Did you see that?" And the other replied:
"Yes, but I don't want to talk about it."

An audio file is being analysed by UFO Monitors East Kent, and UFO Data Magazine, from the air-to-air communications by the crews of the F-15s. UFO Monitors East Kent, here in Kent, England, along with UFO Data Magazine are making enquiries into the incident and are hoping to make representations under the US and UK Freedom of Information Acts.
This looks like an intriguing case, especially as the incident was recorded by
radio monitors here in the UK.

Steve Johnson, features writer for UFO Data Magazine, said: "We are still looking into it and we have made a Freedom of Information request to the Ministry of Defence and have also contacted RAF Lakenheath – but they haven't got back to us yet."

It always good to have the audio but as yet this is officially unconfirmed.

There's as much chance (if not more) of UFO's being terrestrially made rather than coming from another galaxy.
