Location of Sighting: Hucknall
Date of Sighting: 1978
Witness Name: D Henson
Witness Statement:I have decided to let a site know about my sighting. I was around 8 or 9 and was living in Hucknall a small town in Nottingham. It was a Saturday afternoon and I was in our living room playing while my dad watched grandstand. Our window had no net curtains and my dad was laying on the sofa looking towards the window. I don’t know the exact time, but it was defiantly a Saturday around lunch time and I think it was late summer. As I played something dropped out of the clouds or sky and flew directly over our house. Both myself and my farther ran to the window and then I proceeded to run after my dad who got to the rear garden in record time. I remember looking up for this craft/ object/ unknown plane whatever it may have been. But the oddest thing is I remember the day like yesterday and there was no noise. No engine sound, no rumble, no smoke or jet tail. I remember the craft being almost a round fronted shape like today’s stealth bombers, it wasn’t a disc, or cigar shape. What stands out also was the orange colour. It was either an orange craft or the light was orange. It was big enough to be seen by both myself and my dad at the same time. We still to this day talk about it and what it may have been. All I know is that something that day dropped out the sky, flew over our house and had no sound what so ever. It will always be with me, and I’m glad we witnessed it together at the same time. Hope this may help in some way.
