Newly-Released UFO Files - PAU inglés 2011 Andalucía resuelto

UFO flying on the countryside
The Ministry of Defence has released eighteen UFO -Unidentified Flying Object- files that include an account of a wartime meeting attended by the Prime Minister Winston Churchill. He was so concerned about the issue that he ordered it to be kept secret for at least 50 years to prevent “mass panic.” Nick Pope, a UFO sightings investigator, explained: "What happened is that a scientist, whose grandfather was one of Churchill's bodyguards, said that Churchill and Eisenhower got together to hide a phenomenal UFO sighting that was witnessed by a RAF crew on their way back from a bombing raid.” The interesting thing is that most of the UFO files from that period have been deleted. The reason apparently was that Churchill believed it would cause mass panic and it would shatter people's religious views.
According to the files, there were also more than 600 reports of sightings of UFOs in 1996. Dr David Clarke, a UFO consultant to the National Archives, explained to the BBC why the papers are being made public now: "Since the Freedom of Information Act arrived in 2005, UFOs have become the third-most popular subject for people to write to the Ministry of Defence saying “Please, could you release this file or papers that you hold on this particular case?" What they've decided to do is to be totally open and to say “Look, we're not holding any secrets back about this subject, we've got all these files and we're going to make them available to the public.”
These files are part of a project between the Ministry of Defence and the National Archives and they are available at their website.
