'UFOs? I've seen 180'

Forget Roswell. If you want to spot UFOs, the "Falkirk triangle"
is said to be your best bet. Here Scottish farm worker Craig
Malcolm tells of his years scanning the skies for unidentified
flying objects.

My nephew, who is four, loves watching the skies. We did the ET
ride at Universal Studios and the wee man thought it was
brilliant. Now he thinks ET is going to come and see him.

I saw my first UFO in 1991 when I was 19. My big brother came
into the house one night pure white - we thought he'd been in a
car crash. He said, 'something's just chased me' - yeah, right.

We went outside and this thing was above our house. The only way
I can describe it is a figure of eight rotating through the sky.

There was no sound; just pulsating lights coming off it. We
videoed it, and when we played it back, we noticed smaller
objects coming off it and flying off in opposite directions.

 From there, it just snowballed. I've seen about 180 now, and
have got 13 hours of footage of strange phenomena flying about
in the sky above my house. I've also filmed planes and
helicopters just to compare them.

Roswell UFO museum

Roswell has attracted alien-seekers for decades
I sent this footage to SETI i in the US for analysis. It came back
that 95% was UFOs and 5% was aircraft.

I'd been a bit of a sceptic before I saw what I saw; I'm a 100%
believer now.

This stuff about Bonnybridge being the Costa del Sol for aliens,
I think they're having a laugh. But if it creates a bit of
interest and gets people up here, that's a good thing because
tourism has died a death what with foot-and-mouth.

Conspiracy theory

I've had a few hair-raising experiences. Something chased me
while I was in the car with my dad.

We'd seen something hovering and had got out to have a look when
two balls came out as if to get us. At that point I jumped back
in the car - I was all for leaving my dad on the side of the
road, I was that terrified.

As we drove off, we noticed a red BMW sitting in a lay-by so
stopped to ask if they'd seen it. These two guys said that they
hadn't seen anything and that they didn't want to talk to us.
Then they just drove off.

The next day, the police came to my work - I'd been in a company
vehicle the night before - and asked why I'd been on that road.
By the end of the week, I'd lost my job.


I think there might be some kind of base in the area. There's a
hell of a lot of activity, with military helicopters and such
like flying about.

I know it's typical to blame the government, but I worked for
the Ministry of Defence a while back and had my eyes opened by
that job. I drove senior staff to and from military
establishments all over the place - there's a lot more out there
than people like to believe.

'Level-headed guy'

People who haven't seen things tend to be total sceptics and
call me a crackpot. But I'm a pretty level-headed sort of guy
and I don't drink or take drugs.


I know what I've seen, what my family's seen. These things are
totally bizarre. They do neck-breaking manoeuvres. They
disappear and reappear in different places. We've seen discs,
triangles, tubes, spheres, all different lights and colours.

We all believe there's something strange, whether it be
government or UFO. I reckon we'll never really find out what's
out there.
