Britains 1st Flying Saucer

Britains 1st Flying Saucer

Date: June 1, 1950

Location: RAF Tangmere - Tangmere, England

A Gloster Meteor at RAF Tangmere passes a flying saucer lit up with lights, this was described as Britains first flying saucer.

The object was reported to be shining, revolving, and disk like at 20,000' at 2:30 p.m., flying eastwards over the Portsmouth area.

RAF Tangmere asked the radar station at RAF Wartling in Sussex if it had seen the object, and it had on its PPI screen. It led to the setting up of the Flying Saucer Working Party.
