FOO FIGHTERS

During the Second World War Allied pilots were reporting sightings of strange craft whilst on missions. What were these UFOs?
Cases of mistaken identity?
Known aerial phenomenon?
Or visitors from another planet observing mans self destruction?


The Foo Fighter phenomena was taken very seriously at the time of the sightings during WW2, reports were studied by very well known scientists such as H.P.Robertson  and others however no information has ever been released that satisfactorily explains what the phenomenon was.

A popular comic strip at the time by cartoonist Bill Hollman featured a character known as Smokey Stover, this characters favourite saying was  " Where there's foo there's fire " as many of the objects spotted looked fiery in nature, the words Foo Fighter seemed quite an apt name to describe them.

Most descriptions of Foo Fighters describe glowing red or orange balls that would follow the plane performing outrageous maneuvers that were just not possible in any allied plane, this led initially into the belief that the objects may have been a German secret weapon, however after the war it emerged that the Axis pilots were also seeing similar objects during their missions. Strangely not only were these objects seen on numerous occasions they were also captured on radar, as reported by radio operator Andrew. V. Ambrose "I had frequently picked up a target on the radar screen that appeared to be a conventional aircraft," he said. "But... upon being tracked [it] would accelerate to a fantastic speed, which made it impossible to set a rate on and even more difficult to identify. So we referred to them as 'ghosts'... I have always been puzzled by the occurrence of these sightings I have personally made on radar.". So it certainly seems that in many instances that the Foo Fighter sightings definitely had a physical substance and were most definitely not just optical illusions.



UFOs are often spotted by commercial airline pilots today but the sheer amount of Foo Fighters spotted during WW2 by both sides is quite unbelievable, one explanation could be that they were an electromagnetic phenomenon something akin to St Elmos fire, indeed in all case sightings the objects never appeared to impose a physical threat. One B29 gunner claimed to have fired and hit a Foo Fighter, with it breaking up into smaller pieces before falling to the ground and setting fire to some buildings below, another possible explanation could be they were some sort of dazzle effect caused by flak fire, this could explain certain sightings if they were near land but not the sightings that would occur over sea, no definitive answer has ever been given to what Foo Fighters were and to this day they remain in the file marked unexplained.

Triangular Shaped Craft Spotted in Canada.

I was recently having a drink  in a local pub when i was approached by friend who introduced me to a pal of his, knowing that i have a keen interest  in the UFO phenomena he was sure that i would be interested in the story his pal had to tell, the man, middle aged and semi retired lived in the English midlands but owned a holiday home in Canada in the middle of nowhere, a really secluded place which had an hours drive to the nearest store and no other dwellings within walking distance apart from one neighbor ( a Canadian citizen ) who's home was only 100ft or so away.

One night with his wife retired for the evening the man ( lets call him Eric ) decided that he was going to sit outside on the patio area and relax with a glass of something, just chill, and look up at the stars, he had not been sitting out long before he noticed that something looked wrong about the sky, the way he described it was that there seemed to be a patch where the stars were obscured by something, after going back inside to fetch binoculars he carried on observing when suddenly three bright red lights appeared in the area of the patch just described, it was at this point he noticed that there appeared to be an outline joining the lights which formed a triangular shape and Eric realised what he was seeing was some type of craft, Eric decided to run over and inform his neighbor, to his surprise the neighbor came out took a quick look up at the sky and announced " Oh, their back again huh! " and went off back inside!
Eric observed the craft for a few more minutes before it slowly moved off into the distance, now sightings of triangular craft have been relatively common over the years so my first question was  " How big did it look, the size of a car, bus ? " Eric then laughed and this was his reply " A car a bus? , it was the size of about 3 or 4 football pitches put together! It was enormous "
Now i have got to know Eric quite well since this time and have found him not to be a man predisposed to lying or for that matter exaggeration, if he says that's what he saw that's what he saw.
