Location of Sighting: Pontefract West Yorkshire
Date of Sighting: October 2012
Witness Name: Andrew & Donna Brook
Witness Statement: At around 7:30pm on a Thursday evening in, i think October last year (2012) my wife and i were driving back home to Wakefield from A1 motor auctions (Manheim) in knottingley after an evening sale (we are a used vehicle motor dealer) and as we came very near to the Pontefract exit 32 my wife Donna was looking to the left and said to me “what the hell is that” as i looked over i also saw what looked like the old Vulcan aircraft as it had the same shape as the Vulcan, triangular shape, and looked to be banking over on its side, but what looked like only about 40ft above the ground, we saw no lights on the craft as its underside was facing away from us.
It was too late for me to come off at the junction as i was passed it by the time i saw it.
The craft looked to be moving very slowly, and anyone knows that an aircraft of this size needs to be going quite fast to stay airborne, it was about the size of a large detached house, sorry but it’s the only way i can describe its size, we were very close to it as it was just behind the trees at the side of the motorway.
I would not have taken it this far had my friend only 2 weeks ago told me he has seen the same thing more than one in the 16 year period he worked in Pontefract for whilst on his way home from work.
There looks to be some kind of outcropping going on there as we went back last month to have another look and show our son where we saw this strange thing.
I am not really a UFO geek but i have to say that i could be a believer now as there is no way that is was a regular aircraft.
My wife Donna is very anti UFO and alien, she certainly is a non-believer and hates things like this and finds it very boring to talk about as a rule, my god it’s even changed her mind lol.
What’s going on in Pontefract then?
