APRIL 1983 OR 1984 FAIRWOOD COMMON
APRIL 1983 OR 1984 – FAIRWOOD COMMON
The witness is unsure if this sighting was in 1983 or 1984. However, he does remember that it was a Thursday in April.
The time was about 8.15-20 PM. Brian Harry was living at 40 Hen Parc Lane, Upper Killay, Swansea. It was at dusk, clear sky, no clouds. Brian was in his back garden when he saw a solid black disc approaching from the direction of Pennard in the south-west, and flying over Fairwood Common at a high altitude. It was travelling at a slow speed on a steady course. Its size he compared to that of the length of a Boeing 747 airliner.
He described it as like two saucers joined together at the rim, totally black, and above and below, but not touching the object, was a strobe light of a silvery white colour, like that of lightning, flashinh very fast. There was no sound, and the object left no trail behind it.
He immediately called his wife, Jennifer, and the next-door neighbour, Bob, a truck driver, and the three of them watched it continue on its course towards Swansea Bay in the east, for 5 or 6 minutes.
Suddenly, without warning, it shot off at high speed in the direction of Cardiff.
