Sheffield UFO incident, March 24 1997, we may have proof??

Recommended Posts

I was told from a very reliable source who went to the scene on the night in question, and was part of the investigation. I'm afraid it was nothing more than a jet smashing the sound barrier and people over-reacting.

I remember the radio reports coming in at the time, "unidentified flying object" that had crashed on the evening of the 24th of march 199 as I recall, the day after I was talking to my friend bottle top bill (he was called that for his love of diffrent bottled beers and ales from across the uk) he told me that he had recorded 20 secends of this just as it flew over stocksbridge

 

as we talked about how he managed to run downstair's and crabbed his camcorder, how lucky he was to get this footage and showed me this after he had it transfered to VHS, a year or two later I asked him if he still had the video tape in question of the footage, but unfortunately he had over recorded with footage of his aunt drunk at a wedding to which later he sent into "youve been framed", I then asked him why he did not keep this safe but then he reminded me that the week before the wedding he asked me if I knew of a place that sold good quality blank video tapes in the city centre, but I had one too many cans of skol that night so could not give him some good advice on where to go

I remember the radio reports coming in at the time, "unidentified flying object" that had crashed on the evening of the 24th of march 1997 as I recall, the day after I was talking to my friend bottle top bill (he was called that for his love of different bottled beers and ales from across the uk) he told me that he had recorded 20 seconds of this just as it flew over stocksbridge

I don't mean to go too far off subject here, but I used to know a guy called Bottletop Bill. We called him that for exactly the same reason; he loved different ales. I used to regularly sit in the Banker's Draft with him, sipping a pint of Carling extra cold whilst he worked his way through their range of bottled beers, and chatted about the good old days in Sheffield. He would reminisce about Park Hill flats, an what a great place it was to live in the 70s.

 

I haven't seen Bill for years. Sid, do you still see him? If so, could you find out if it is the same guy I remember? Ask him how he broke his foot in Halfway around a decade ago; if it is him, he will definitely have a tale of woe to regale you with!

 

But odds are it is someone else, I suppose the Bill I knew must be getting on a bit now.

well Chris, I think it is the same person, I remember him telling me about a police car running over his foot while he was waiting for the bus up at halfway, strangly the police car did not stop according to bottle top bill!

I have seen bill just last week in iceland at crystal peaks, as I walked past him I noticed he had a bottle of reggie reggie sauce in his basket and asked him if he likes that stuff, he turned around to me and said "no I dont, but the wife cant stand the sight of the stuff so thats why I buy it" we both had a good laugh and went our diffrent ways, if I see him again I shall refer him to this thread if he is on the internet.

Sid, it is him!! Yes, that happened in Halfway, couldn't believe it at the time.

 

The sauce is a good un, will mention that if I ever see him again.

 

I am not surprised you saw him there, he used to love the goodfellas pizzas they did.

chris, he would often fill his basket with goodfellas ham and pineapple!! oh the good old days!

 

although I think they have had a 30% price increase over the past year without increasing in size, I call that getting tripped by buisness.

Exactly, because the distances involved are so vast.

Too vast for current human technology that is.

 

For people who find the notion of life on other planets ridiculous just look at all the wierd and wonderful life forms that DO exist on this planet and ask yourself why can't it also exist elswhere, why?

Did the OP get abducted or something?

He created an account,made this thread,then a week later was his last post.

I think they got him!! or......

It could just be another crackpot under a different made up username,trying to make the story plausible by using multi accounts.

I'll go for the second option.
