The Staffordshire UFO Group had a brief but exciting life, as it aimed to find out why things go bump in the night locally! We look back at its achievements
The Staffordshire UFO Group was started in 1995 with a remit to investigate UFO cases in Staffordshire. It appears to have folded sometime in 2007.
During those years, a number of the more interesting cases were investigated - including some of those which have occurred in the past on its borders such as the RAF Cosford/Shawbury event.
Staffordshire UFO Group produced a full length professional documentary on flying triangular shaped craft in 2004. It was awarded an 'EBE' at the 2005 Laughlin, Nevada - (International UFO Congress Conference).
This documentary became available for sale and covers a well documented event from Staffordshire.
The organisers of the Staffordshire UFO Group have been proactive in disseminating information about the subject and have made a number of visits to BBC Radio Stoke as well as BBC Radio West Midlands and international shows.
Shows such as 'Lets Talk Paranormal' in America (hosted by former 'Stokie'- Tracey Austin), and a recently filmed interview for Channel 5 have been platforms in which the group debated the subject of UFOs.
You can see a film made by its erstwhile chairman Graham Allen elsewhere on this site (just return to the 'Odd Staffordshire menu).
I knew there was a UFO group locally but it seems to have died, shame really would have been interesting to join them.
