Did a UFO crash in Hucknall in November 1987?

The alledged crash took place on the date of November 12th 1987, whilst most people were asleep in bed. The silence of the night was shattered in the early hours after a thunderball tore through homes in Kirkby in Ashfield. Freak weather was blamed at the time, but since the event multiple witnesses have come forward. Certainly something highly sensitive and inexplicable happened that night. Windows of 13 houses were blown out, chimney stacks fell from roofs, severe damage to buildings due to an airborne collision were reported.

First hand reports of military activity in the area of the A60 known as Thieves wood, closing off of roads, implementation of armed guards, systematic questioning of locals. People were stopped in their cars, by a road block near Annesley and told they could go no further as a helicopter had come down in the local woods. Other witnesses had snippets of information an object of intense light was trying to avoid built up areas and was veering south towards the Hucknall airfield.

A regular bus driver of the A60 route at the time recalls the time very well. Dominic Beglin of the East Midlands UFO Research association held a public talk and discussion regarding the UFO Crash in 1997, in Basford. Mr Beglin quoted an Ashfield district councillor “God only knows how no one was killed, it was like the blitz” during his talk. Witnesses at the time said the ball of light didn’t travel in a straight line witnesses claim to have seen in dive down and up again distinctly over the hills and lay of the land. Thieves wood has a number of tales of its own.



Reports of ghosts, apparitions, strange sensations… well this as you can imagine can only add to the list going on there and adding to the local lore.
