At what point is a drill more than just a drill? Maybe when it is so massive it could be confused for an invasion force, involving a mind-blowing 155,000 troops, more than the armies of most sovereign nations, 4,000 armoured vehicles, 632 planes and helicopters and 84 vessels.

The British Ministry of Defense is still withholding high-level UFO public policy papers, along with other key information, despite the public stance that all material has been transferred to the National Archives, according to John F. Burroughs, a retired USAF security officer. Burroughs, 54, was stationed at RAF Bentwaters in 1980 and witnessed one of the most significant UFO events in English history.
