Roy's UFO book entices American visitors to Bay

THE quality and quantity of sightings of UFOs in South Devon attracted a group of American visitors with a professional interest in such sightings.

The five had been on a tour of France and came on a one-day visit to Torquay from Paris.

Three of the five are professional astrologer/mystics and the group had delayed their return to the United States especially to visit Torquay resident Roy Dutton.

They had heard of the book written by Roy, a retired professional aerospace engineer and who has researched strange aerial craft.

Roy, who lives at Watcombe Park, began studying unexplained aircraft sightings in the 1960s.

He says that with his professional knowledge of aircraft and spacecraft he quickly established the craft described by witnesses were not made by man.

He says his analytical studies eventually led him to discover the craft were following established rules of engagement with the Earth, so their activities could be anticipated, even predicted.

These discoveries became encapsulated in an astronautical theory for UFO events, featured in his book UFOs in Reality.

The five Americans had heard about the book and wanted to meet him.

The group visited Babbacombe Downs and Cockington Village and were struck by Torbay's natural environment and views.

    "Three of the five are professional astrologer/mystics" Well that says it all! I wonder if they went into Torquay town centre on a Saturday night...plenty of non-humans floating around there!

    Looking at the actions (New York. wars etc) of the human race I didn't realise there was intelligent life on this planet.

    I once saw a bright light in the sky on a cold clear winters night.It was in Hele Village in 1979, I had just left the Royal Standard after saying goodbye to my mates and finishing my 8th pint of Rough Cider I made my way towards Lichfield Ave I must have slipped up on something, anyway whilst lying on my back looking up at the stars I saw it a great big bright light in the sky.Now to this day I'm not sure what it was, some say it was a "street lamp" others say it was a policemans torch one bloke said it could have been a glowworm to which I said no way you don't them things here. To this day I am convinved it was a UFO, the Hele Village UFO.I have told that story many times down the years and nobody that I can remember believes me apart from Bert who is now dead.

    Don't be such a mug - you need working on. If there is intelligent life out there in the stars they would do well to totally avoid this planet.

    Maybe the the nearest planet from earth with people living on is nearer than we think its just we haven't been able to locate it with our current telescope technology. Google captian bowyer. I don't take any notice of the ufo spam on the internet which it mostly often is but there are some interesting videos with airline pilots talking about having see obivous craft. AIr france pilot said he saw a huge flying disc which was bright brown. if we send out space probes unmanned then whats to say other planets are not doing the same. I think they are un piloted space research probes from other planets. thats means other planets have likely monitored us with powerful telescopes. We really have not explored much of space and is the next gateway outside of our skies. Other planets may be conducting trips to the stars. MAybe our planet itself is on a trip to the stars. Perhaps we will takeoff when ready for departure
