It must suck to be frightened so badly that you keep your lips sealed until 77 years old. That seems to happen a lot with cases like these. Not that speaking earlier would have changed anything I suppose, other than end his career or end up dead.

It's from the sun eh? It's a tabloid in u.k. that's about as credible as graffiti in a public bathroom.
It's a generic story. Yahoo and the BBC are also carrying stories about it and other items in the latest batch of UK MOD files, which were released today.

I think this quote by the pilot explains alot:

Milton, now 77, said: "I was smoking, as fast as I could go."

So, just to get this straight.

It was decided to fire 24 rockets at something the size of an aircraft carrier that could move at 10 000 miles per hour.

Something tells me that the rockets would have done nothing had they hit, and those in charge of the UFO wouldn't have been too thrilled about this (assuming that it's true, of course). The max speed we've obtained as humans in the atmosphere is significantly under 10 000 mph, and we have nuclear bombs that can destroy pretty large swathes of land. Something tells me that by the time we're hitting 10 000mph, we'll also have more advanced weaponry, hence it's fair to assume that this 10 000mph aircraft carrier could pack some pretty heavy firepower.

I think the word I'm looking for is "fail" ;)
