The world of UFOs and Aliens is filled with controversy, speculation and mystery. What are the UFOs? Do they exist in reality or are they drawn from somewhere within the mind of man? Do they they emanate from another dimension altogether or are they ancient archetypes that we have forgotten with the sands of time? The Archetype of the UFO tackles these dilemmas head on, going where few UFO documentaries have dared to go before. As we near 2012, we now need to abandon any previous notions about this phenomenon and delve deeper into this fascinating realm that lures the entire human race toward its future destiny. Be prepared to think again, outside of standardized reasoning and journey with us into a new paradigm on this controversial and mounting subject. Joining O. H. Krill and Philip Gardiner in this search is Nick Pope, the real-life Fox Mulder with his incredible and unique insight from his days leading the British Ministry of Defence UFO Project

The fate of 200 tanks left in woods in the Urals, is raising further questions from the public over mismanagement in the Russian army. This amateur footage reportedly shows locals with unrestricted access to the tanks, walking freely among them, and even climbing inside them. And that's despite claims by the authorities they're being guarded around the clock, and will be relocated next month. Locals say the Ministry of Defence brought the tanks to the woods in November.

The URC (Unit Run Canteen) employees of Indian Defense Forces threaten to commit suicide at Parliament Gate No.11 on the coming 1st May 2010, the day celebrated as "Labor Day" all over the world, if their demands are not met by 30th April 2010. URC employees from all over India took part in a "Red Kachchha Rally" (participants were half-naked only in red shorts) on 18 Mar 10 in front of the Parliament House to demand justice from Ministry of Defence. They agitate for their meagre pay of only Rs 3000 - 5000 even after long 30 - 40 years of service with no DA, HRA or other facilities. They are even paid less than that paid to a unskilled daily wagers per day. They submitted a memorandum to Mrs Sonia Gandhi, the Chairperson of UPA, Dr Manmohan Singh the honorable PM of India and Mr AK Anthony, the honorable Defence Minister. Their main demands were:
(i) As the CSD (Wholesale Outlet), the retail outlets (URCs) should also be declared as Public Fund and the entire transactions are revealed to the Govt of India.
(ii) The recommendations of the 6th Pay Commission should be implemented with effect from 01 Jan 2006 as applicable to other Govt employees.
Will the Govt take honest step to check the utility of huge earnings from the so-called Non-Public Fund i.e. Unit Run Canteens and do justice to the poor employees and their families.

Keith Reynolds impulsively buys a secondhand metal detector and uses it during a camping weekend with his wife, sister-in-law and her husband.
The discovery by the metal detector and subsequent illicit removal of a handgun from a disused Ministry of Defence (MOD) site, leads to Keith being implicated in the unsolved murder of a senior policeman's brother. The policeman is due for retirement, but has vowed to catch his brother's killer.
With only Keith's fingerprints on the gun and the illicit way he smuggled it out of the MOD grounds, Keith has difficulty proving to the police how it came to be in his possession. News of the gun's discovery leads the real killer to try and retrieve it before ballistic testing begins.
From here, the thrilling murder mystery becomes a paranormal adventure as The Metal Detector takes some strange and dangerous turns.

The third instalment of UFO files, transferred by the the Ministry of Defence, covers the period from 1987 to 1993. One of the more unusual cases recounts the experience of an unidentified female who phoned RAF Wattisham in Norfolk in November 1989: 'She reported she was approached by a man who claimed to come from another planet, similar to earth. During the ten minute conversation, the man claimed his race was responsible for creating crop circles. What's more, he felt it was important for ...
The Panavia Tornado is a family of twin-engine combat aircraft, which was jointly developed by the United Kingdom, West Germany and Italy. There are three primary versions of the Tornado; the Tornado IDS (Interdictor/Strike) fighter-bomber, the suppression of enemy air defences Tornado ECR (Electronic Combat/Reconnaissance) and the Tornado ADV (Air Defence Variant) interceptor. It is one of the world's most sophisticated and capable interdiction and attack aircraft, with a large payload, long range and high survivability.
Developed and built by Panavia, a tri-national consortium consisting of British Aerospace (then the British Aircraft Corporation), MBB of West Germany, and Alenia Aeronautica of Italy, the Tornado first flew on August 14, 1974, and saw action with the RAF and AMI (Italian Air Force) in the Gulf War. International co-operation continued after its entry into service within the Tri-National Tornado Training Establishment, a tri-nation training and evaluation unit operating from RAF Cottesmore, England. Including all variants, 992 aircraft were built for the three partner nations and Saudi Arabia.

The first British prototype made its maiden flight on 30 October 1974. On 11 July 1985 the RAF reconnaissance version (GR1A) made its maiden flight. RAF Tornado GR1s were used during the Gulf War, Operation Desert Fox and the Kosovo War.
For the Gulf War (Operation Granby), the ALARM missile and TIALD pod were rushed into service for RAF IDSs. Seven aircraft were lost to ground fire. It is said that these Tornados were shot down by AAA fire and MANPADS during delivery of the JP233 missions, whereas in fact none of the losses occurred during the attack phase of a JP 233 mission. (One Tornado was shot down three minutes after the attack had been completed.)
Laser guided bombing was introduced at Muharraq on 2 February using Buccaneers as airborne designators. Over 1500 bombing sorties and 100 JP233 sorties were flown by RAF Tornados during the Gulf War.
On 14 February 1994 the RAF received the first GR.1B maritime strike aircraft.
As early as May 1984 the UK Ministry of Defence began studies for the first Tornado upgrade project, but the project stalled. In March 1993 a new Mid-Life Upgrade (MLU) project was launched. On 29 May the first GR.4 development aircraft made its maiden flight. On 29 July 1994 the UK signed a contract for MLU of GR1/GR1A/GR1Bs to GR.4/GR.4A standard. The first flight of an upgraded GR4 was on 4 April 1997, with the first delivery to the RAF on 31 October. The GR4 entered front line service on 28 April 1998. The Tornado GR4 made its operational debut in patrols during Operation Southern Watch. The aircraft flew from Ali Al Salem in Kuwait, and patrolled a large part of southern Iraq. Several times bombs were dropped when the aircraft were fired upon by Iraqi ground defences.
The GR4 version's full wartime debut came in Operation Telic, the British part of the invasion of Iraq in 2003. The aircraft, according to all indications in the public domain, performed well. The campaign in Iraq marked a number of firsts for the aircraft. No. 617 Squadron used the Storm Shadow Missile for the first time, and enhanced Paveway smart bombs were used to attack runways. On 23 March 2003 a Tornado GR4 was lost to friendly fire when it was engaged and shot down by a U.S. Patriot missile battery. Both crew members were killed.
In early 2009, Tornado GR4s are due to replace the detachment of Harrier GR7/9 ground-attack aircraft that has been based at Afghanistan's Kandahar airfield since November 2004.
