Considering the efforts that you, David and others had to put
into getting the MoD files released in the first place and which
have been coming out in clumps for some years now would it not
make sense that the RAF's inability to guarantee the UK's
airspace would likely produce some embarrassing cases that might
be held back?

The United States and Canada have done the same and all three
have parroted one another with the claim that these unidentified
objects pose no threat to national security.

On August 4 in Washington, DC two F-16s intercepted a 75 year
old woman flying a 60 horsepower J-3 Piper Cub (a rag wing as we
call them) when she drifted into restricted airspace over
Chicago (she didn't get the NOTAM) because President Obama was
there for his birthday celebration. The pilot, Myrtle Rose
thought they flew by to admire her pretty little Cub but she was
met by the police when she landed.

Myrtle was no threat to national security either but they chased
her anyway when NORAD reported her straying into the  Secret
Service's paranoia zone. The radar signature of a J-3 Cub is
pretty small. Cars below pass J-3s on the four lane highways.
Flying close over top of a J-3 with an F-16 would destroy it by
the way.

One wonders if Ms Rose was able to suddenly warp away at Mach 15
in her J-3 Cub, out maneuver her F-16 persuit, avoid being shot
down would she then NOT be a threat to national security? Would
it then be classified Top Secret because it is too embarrassing
to release to the public; claimed not a threat to national
security; or redacted to the point of un-readability?

It appears that if these air forces can't catch or out maneuver
an unidentified flying object then said object is no longer a
threat to national security. During WWII it was imperative to
have air superiority over Europe and Japan in order for the
allies to win.

Funny how times change.
