Location of Sighting: Birtley , County Durham
Date of Sighting: 18th May 2013
Time: 10.30 ish (pm)
Witness Name: Paul
Witness Statement: I was standing in my front garden talking to a friend with my son in my arms , as we were watching a plane coming in from the south we noticed another plane coming in right behind it and it was coming in faster , i then shouted of my wife to come and see , then what we thought was a second plane came to an almost stop and started heading east towards the coast , we then grabbed a pair of binoculars from the house and what we saw was what appeared to be a diamond shaped craft top half was white and the bottom was red the whole thing was glowing really bright at that point it was just drifting absolutely silent and then just shot off out of sight , bearing in mind we only live about 10 mile away from the airport so both the plane and whatever the hell it was were quite low but yet the “UFO” !! Was totaly silent , no flashing lights , no wings or windows that we could see , weird !!
