Incidentul OZN din Munții Berwyn a fost o presupusă prăbușire a unui OZN în Marea Britanie. Ambele incidente, atât cel din Munții Berwyn cât și cel din Pădurea Rendlesham au fost numite Incidentul Roswell britanic.
Incidentul OZN din Munții Berwyn a avut loc la 23 ianuarie 1974 în Munții Berwyn în Llandrillo, Merionethshire, North Wales.
Un număr neobișnuit de lumini s-au observat pe cer. Evenimentul a fost urmat de o agitare dramatică a pământului. S-a considerat că s-a prăbusit un avion sau un meteorit. Într-o oră, poliția a cercetat Munții Berwyn și a fost ajutată de o echipa de salvare a aviației britanice de la Anglesey. Nimic nu a fost găsit și toate căutările au fost anulate la ora 2 pm în ziua următoare.
Dovezile științifice indică faptul că evenimentul a fost generat de un cutremur combinat cu observarea unui meteorit luminos observat pe scară largă deasupra Țării Galilor și nordul Angliei..
Institutul de Științe Geologice engleză Institute of Geological Sciences a raportat că a fost un cutremur cu o magnitudine 3,5. Cutremurul a fost simțit la 8:38 în acea noapte pe o arie largă din nordul Țării Galilor și în depărtare pâna la Liverpool. Nu a fost identificat imediat ce a fost, până la ancheta poliției. Cu toate acestea, amploarea șocului a fost de așa natură încât la locul impactului craterul rezultat a fost suficient de mare pentru a fi vizibil cu ușurință. Luminile neobișnuite pot să fi fost pur și simplu de la meteorit, dar poate fi inclus, de asemenea, fenomenul cunoscut sub numele de lumina de cutremur.
In Llandrillo, North Wales, United Kingdom, on January 23, 1974, an extremely compelling UFO event began. Many of the residents of the village heard an extremely loud noise. Most of the citizens thought that an explosion had occurred-possibly a plane crash. Those who ventured outside on this cold night were astonished to see blue and orange lights near the Cader Bronwen mountain.
There would be many eyewitness accounts of what was seen. The press immediately investigated the occurrence, and interviewed those close to the scene of the lights on the mountain. The first newspaper accounts made this statement:
„There was a huge explosion a few minutes after 8:30 PM. From various accounts, this preceded, some say, by up to two or three minutes, a violent shaking of the ground, like a medium-sized earthquake-objects inside houses were knocked off shelves.”
Area Cordoned Off:
The scene of the area near the mountain would closely resemble the Kecksburg, Pennsylvania crash of 1965. Local police would arrive at the scene first, soon followed by the Royal Air Force. The area in and around the crash site was zoned off, with no one allowed to enter. A search and rescue effort would be ongoing for several days, with no information being related to interested bystanders or press personnel.
Group of Men:
An employee of a hotel in nearby Bala would come forward with a very interesting story. He stated that a group of men had checked into the hotel, and stayed during the search of the mountains. They did admit that they were involved in the mission, but could not talk about what they had seen or found at the site. Another account was given by a nurse who lived in Llanderfel, also close to the scene of the crash. Local police had asked for the assistance of the nurse at the crash site. She was told a plane had gone down in the area.
A Glowing UFO:
Being rushed to the scene, and not being able to get a sitter for her teenage daughters, she was forced to take them along. Driving on B4391, at 10:00 PM, the road was deserted. As she reached the foot of the mountain chain, she was shocked at what she saw… a glowing UFO. She and her daughters would later relate their story to the press. They saw a UFO, which was almost intact. It was a large, circular object, and glowed an orange color.
Escorted from Site:
They were within a couple of hundred yards of the object, and were certain of what they saw. They also saw emergency personnel-local police and military, close to the object. The nurse was instructed to immediately leave the area. She told the authorities that she was ordered to the site, but was quickly escorted from the area.
Investigation Covered Up:
For several days, all roads leading to the crash area were closed to everyone but authorized personnel. The nurse was told by local shepherds that they were not allowed to tend their flocks during the operation at the mountain. Most of the citizens that lived near the area of the mountain crash were convinced by what they saw that a military cover-up was being conducted. It is still a mystery as what exactly happened on January 23, 1974 near the Berwyn Mountains of Wales.
Alien Bodies Recovered After UFO Crash In Wales?
A top-secret Government research base was used to store alien bodies after their UFO crashed in a remote Welsh valley, it was claimed yesterday.
The mysterious craft came down in the Berwyn Mountains, Clwyd, according to a new book by top UFO investigator Nick Redfern.
In a chilling echo of the infamous Roswell Incident in New Mexico, scores of troops were dispatched on a secret mission to recover the wreckage.
One soldier, quoted in the book under the pseudonym James Prescott, was ordered to Llandderfel with four others and loaded two oblong boxes into their armoured truck.
They then ferried the bodies back to the Chemical and Biological Defence Establishment at Porton Down near Salisbury, Wilts, under strict orders not to stop for anything.
Retired Mr Prescott, who is too afraid of reprisals to be named, said: „Once inside, the boxes were opened by staff at the faculty in our presence. We were shocked to see two creatures which had been placed inside decontamination suits.
„It was obvious the creatures were not of this world and, when examined, were found to be dead.
„The bodies were about five to six feet tall, humanoid in shape, but so thin they looked almost skeletal with a covering skin.
„Although I did not see a craft at the scene of the recovery, I was informed that a large craft had crashed and was recovered by other military units.”
Farmer Huw Lloyd, 39, was a boy of 14 watching TV at home in nearby Llandrillo on the night of the crash in January 1974. He said there was a huge bang followed by a tremor and a blinding blue light.
Huw recalled: „I was amazed at how quickly the police responded and how many people came here.”
The incident has remained classified and the Ministry of Defence refuses to comment.
Details were uncovered by expert Mr Redfern after years of research and are published in his book Cosmic Crashes.
