National Archives files show Winston Churchill may have orderedUFO cover-up:
BRITAIN'S Ministry of Defence investigated a claim that Winston Churchill ordered a cover-up of a UFO sighting during World War II, according to files released by the National Archives.
Documents from the MoD unit assigned to deal with public inquiries about UFOs show that civil servants took seriously a claim that the wartime leader knew about a mysterious craft spotted by an RAF crew.
The allegation came from a member of the public whose grandfather had acted as one of Churchill's bodyguards during the latter stages of the war. The correspondent, whose name has been blacked out from the released files, wrote in August 1999 to ask about an incident over the British coast in the 1940s, when airmen saw a metallic object draw alongside their aircraft and hover near by.
The man said: "My grandfather witnessed the discussion of the event by both Mr Churchill and Mr (Dwight) Eisenhower in the United States, and the great concern that it caused in both countries.
"During the discussion with Mr Churchill, a consultant dismissed any possibility that the object had been a missile, since a missile could not suddenly match its speed with a slower aircraft and then accelerate again.
``Another person at the meeting raised the possibility of an unidentified flying object, at which point Mr Churchill declared that the incident should be immediately classified for at least 50 years and its status reviewed by a future prime minister."
