UFO SIGHTING REPORT
M6 BETWEEN JUNCTIONS 3 AND 4
TOWARDS BIRMINGHAM AIRPORT
January 10th 1998
The UK.UFO.NW are currently investigating three strange sightings in the West Midlands area of the UK during the months of January and February 1998.
Sighting M6 motorway
Sighting No. 2: At 5.23 am on Saturday 10th January 1998, traffic warden Margaret was driving north along the M6 motorway between junctions 3 and 4 towards Birmingham airport approximately 7 miles away.
Weather conditions on this morning were very good. It was dark and clear. There were no motorway lights at this point.
In the distance at an angle of approximately 40 degrees through her vehicles front windscreen she saw an oblong shape stationary in the air. She viewed the object for 30 seconds before it moved away retrospectively into the distance. Margaret who has worked at Birmingham airport for 7 years stated "I see aircraft everyday of my working life. The oblong shape of this was most unusual and not like any aircraft I have ever seen".
UK.UFO.NW are continuing with enquiries, however it is worth bearing in mind that this sighting occurred only 24 hours after sighting number 1. We also found that the Goodyear blimp was in the UK for the first time in 20 years. It was seen later the same day over the Wolverhampton football field 20 miles from Birmingham airport. Margaret stated: "it was not a blimp."
