Description: I was driving west on the M40 and coming down Stokenchurch hill with Oxfordshire opening up as I came over the top. I looked left towards Abingdon power plant chimneys and saw this object shaped like a matchbox, stationary above what I presume was the American Airbase. I noticed a very small object circling which I also presumed was a helicopter. THEN, it shimmered and transformed into a cigar shape in vertical position.
I slapped my face pretty hard incase I was seeing things, then looked again as it shimmered back to matchbox shape..I slapped my face again in disbelief by which time I was at the bottom of the hill and the sighting was behind me.. For the next few weeks I listened to radio BRMB for anyone mentioning the incident. After a few day the radio station said that any more calls on the sightings would be forwarded to the MoD.. Any ideas..
Hi John. Thanks for replying. Been meaning for years to try and find out about it. Whatever it was must have been huge as it dwarfed the cooling towers at Abingdon/Didcot.
