The Malcolm family are well known in the Bonnybridge area of Scotland for videotaping various UFOs -- disks, triangles, orbs and strange lights in the sky. Mr. and Mrs. Malcolm and their sons Neil and Craig all have had encounters. The area has been a hotbed for sightings for many years, and the Malcolms' home, built near the site of an old Roman fort, is in a good postition to see a lot of the night sky.
On October 21, 1997, at 19:25 (7:25 pm) a spinning orb was videotaped; and at 19:26, a military jet was clearly taped swooping low over the area of the sighting. At 19:28, jumping laser-like points of light were taped.
These are not lights from any laser show on the ground. Before, when friends have called them about lights in the sky, it was positively identified as a laser show. But this [latest] display comes from the sky and is associated with the orbs and discs.
On October 23, 1997 at 18:48 (6:48 pm), the same pulsing, erratic, jumping lights were taped. At this point a friend of the family, who does not want to be named, witnessed from her moving car as she drove from Bonnybridge to Larbert two large orbs of light and a smaller probe-like orb.They merged together into one large mass.
She drove fast to get to the Malcolms' house to alert them, but Mrs. Malcolm had seen the same event from the front of her house and was pumping the horn of a parked van to alert Mr. Malcolm.
At 18:51, the single mass of light was taped. On the video, in slow motion, it can clearly be seen to spin and can be compared to the streetlights below, which are obviously static.... As the object was being filmed across a busy road, a double decker bus drove through the frame, as the object spun in the distance.
In the past, these objects have been seen to disappear on camera, do incredible aerobatics that no conventional aircraft could do, and have been taped with several objects in the sky at once.
What are the people of the area to think? The Malcolms are not the only people seeing this. There have been perhaps up to 4,000 reports in the last 5 years. Many other people have photographed and videotaped the aerial displays, and the media is interested.
On October 24, 1997, Craig Malcolm and Councillor Billy Buchanan (from the local council) were on a UK national breakfast news channel GMTV, watched by approximately 5.5 million viewers.
Craig said what he had been seeing and recording, but the presenter tried to ridicule him and said, "You have been in touch with the Pentagon about this?"
Councillor for Bonnybridge, Billy Buchanan, then went on to say that he had been calling for action for over two years, writing to then Prime Minister John Major and the MOD. He has been told the events in the sky are not a threat to national security, so it was not a problem for the MOD.
This started for Buchanan in 1992, when a friend saw a hovering, soundless object over a road. [Through a newspaper article], Buchanan asked the people of the area for reports, and in the first week 400 people telephoned him or came to his door with sightings of the craft.
He has written to New Labour PM Tony Blair, saying 4,000 people have seen things but were afraid to come forward due to ridicule and fear. "We demand an answer, and a government inquiry. Let's get some action here, Mr. Blair," [Buchanan said].
The presenter [TV host] said that GMTV had contacted the Prime Minister's office, who said that they had no comment to make, but Billy Buchanan's office at Falkirk District Council would be getting a response in due course.
According to Neil Cunningham, Councillor Buchanan is still waiting for that response.
Richard Gall, Scotland Director for Skywatch International, adds that many other witnesses in the Bonnybridge area have had encounters over the years, including possible abductions. Gall writes:
"The most sinister incident took place in winter 1992. Driving along the A70 near the Harperring Reservoir, workmen Colin Wright and Gary Wood spotted a black saucer-shaped object hovering above them.
"According to the men, a shimmering beam of light was released over them and they were transported into a black void. Just as quickly, the black cloak was gone and they continued on their way. On reaching their destination, the startled pair discovered a 35-minute journey had taken two hours longer than normal.
"During hypnotherapy, the pair said they were taken from the car by the light then stripped and inspected by creatures with tiny see-through bodies with pear-shaped heads.
"One-time UFO sceptic Gary Wood admitted, 'My sense of reality and what normal life is all about has changed now.'"
