Canberra Crew Encounters UFO / Radar/Visual
Early 1953
Over Salisbury Plain

Within this report, as told by GTW to Jenney Randles, there is evidence indicating a more serious interest by the British and also their early knowledge of the Estimate of the Situation, which most people knew nothing about at that time. Reference is also made to an FBI document, stating "some Military officials are seriously considering the possibility of interplanetary ships", which is provided below.
