Evidence of a military pilot and radar readings convinced the British minister in the existence of "flying saucers."
The incident with the UFO that occurred in the 1950s., Persuaded the British government in the existence of "flying saucers." This is confirmed by documents from the archives of the British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, published by Cambridge University.
In 1952, the British Royal Air Force fighter pilot, Roland Hughes, returning to base after a training session in the sky over West Germany, said the UFO, which flew in front of him with "an incredible rate." Object detected and military radars. Their testimony showed that an unidentified object moving at a speed that could not reach any one aircraft of the time.
Hughes reported the incident to his superiors, and soon he was invited to a meeting with the then Minister of Supply UK Sandeysom Duncan, who later headed the Ministry of Defence. The conversation took place on the basis of the RAF Fassberg in West Germany.
The first question asked by 23-year-old pilot Sandeys — how much beer Hughes drank the night before. But the story of pilot eventually persuaded the Minister that the beer has nothing to do with it. The documents, Hughes reported that he saw a flash "silver light" and closer, I saw that the object is a "silver metal disk." Its surface was "brilliant as foil" and "without a single cavity or convexity." Hughes, in his words, the "amazing clarity saw the ship" with a reflective coating and totally smooth body about 30 m in diameter.
Sandeys being impressed by what he heard, he wrote a report superiors. The documents, which the Minister considers the story of Hughes and radar readings convincing evidence of the existence of UFOs. "I have no doubt that Hughes saw a phenomenon similar to that described by numerous observers in America — wrote Sandeys. — Before will be presented convincing scientific evidence, it would be extremely unwise to believe that the "flying saucers" can only be a manifestation of mass hysteria. "

From the documents indicated that the decision to close the department was correct, since no conclusive evidence of a "cymbals" and has not been found.
The U.S. government, in turn, in the autumn of last year has officially stated that no evidence of the existence of extraterrestrial civilizations and human contact with extraterrestrials. "The U.S. government has no evidence either that any life exists outside our planet, or the fact that extraterrestrial life forms come into contact of any kind with the human race. Besides, we have no reason to believe that evidence of contacts to hide from people, "- answered the requests of citizens, Phil Larson of the White House Department of Science and Technology Policy.
