It rose swiftly, encircling the locality, then finally rushed upwards disappearing into space. Army units were rushed to the spot and made an exhaustive search of the brushwood on the seashore. The next day a team of divers did the same in the water.

When the object moved out of sight it appeared to be going at least Mach 2 or 3. The length of observation was 15 seconds. The Project Blue Book conclusion for this sighting was a Mirage.

Date:  April 29 1957
Location:  English Channel 
Time:  
Summary:  Mysterious objects sighted over the English Channel allegedly turned out to be two of a large number of British Hunter jet fighters on a training exercise, the Air Secretary George Ward said. The objects aroused wide speculation at the time and Royal Air Force Javelin fighters went up to chase them. But they outstripped the Javelins. Questioned in the House of Commons today, Ward said that the Hunters’ movements, as observed by radar, were somewhat unusual and aroused the suspicions of the Radar Defense.
