PICTURES: UFOs fleet converged over airbase, sparking fears of alien invasion of RNAS Yeovilton

Fleets of UFOs are flying in formation close to a top UK military base sparking fears of an alien invasion.

Up to 40 of the giant mystery craft have been seen hovering over Axminster in Devon - just a few miles from air base RNAS Yeovilton.

Retired council worker Ray Johnson has pictured the bizarre flying formations and has even reported them to police.

The 76-year-old retired council parks officer has kept a detailed log of his sightings over the last 18 months some of which have been corroborated by his daughter, Alison.

He says he has seen large and small craft, mostly cylindrical in shape.

He said: "I'd rather people called me a crackpot than ignore it," he said. "Some of them are huge – others are smaller and seem to fly in and out them. "Sometimes there are as many as 30 or 40 of them. "When I first saw them I was so alarmed I called the police but they said there was nothing they could do. "It makes you wonder if we are going to be invaded  but perhaps they are just observing us."

Mr Johnson added the UFOs can be best seen when skies are clear in the early hours of the morning but sometimes can be seen as early as 7pm. "The large ones are sometimes accompanied by smaller ones which seem to stop like they are standing by, he said. "They make no noise and often just fade away.  "Sometimes there are lights all along the side – like searchlights – so bright they can hurt your eyes. "One night my daughter Alison, from Wolverhampton, was with me and she was amazed – she had thought I was pulling her leg. "There were about 10-15 of these huge craft – white, oval-shaped things they made no noise and eventually just faded away.

"My daughter took a photo on her small Olympus camera – you can see the shape of one of them, and if you use a magnifying glass you can ,see the stars behind it. "RNAS Yeovilton is nearby – I often see their planes and helicopters flying by. 

"These UFOs are different  – they're huge and silent and the lights don't flash like aircraft lights." Mr Johnson said the UFOs were sometimes accompanied by orange and red lights and were capable of moving at amazing speeds and could disappear suddenly. 

He added that he has only ever seen a UFO once before in 1954 when he was on sentry duty in the Army and saw two mystery white lights in the sky.  

A spokesman at Axminster Police Station confirmed they had been contacted by Mr Johnson but said there had been no other reports of unidentified flying objects being spotted above the town.

 Mr Johnson said: "I asked the police to send two men out just so they could see the UFOs too – but they didn't do it."

    Oh I do feel sorry for you, I did some back work before commenting or believing , if you don't believe it that's fine, that's your right. I just object to you having a personal dig at me and my father which is out of order and unnecessary. People have seen it, and have reported it to MOD and police and air traffic controller.... Please Jeremy, don't comment for comments sake.. Have a valid reason.

    Oh how the guilible are fooled by such silly stories, how come no-one else saw this. You checked planetary alignments? Why would you bother if stars do not visually move? I say again how long are we going to be listening and reporting such claptrap.Sorry, failed to add comment : Object doesn't support property or method 't'

    Well Jeremy.. That 'Old Man' is my Father a very good and decent man. So I am afraid I take great offence to your comment. Further more just because someone tells you that there is nothing out there... You believe it? Or do you have an open mind to the possibility that there are things that you will never be aware of even if the worlds leaders knew something do you really think that you are important enough to share the information with ?? Doubt it. There have been sightings, and cave paintings from all around the world in different time frames and centuries... Who can tell if this is 'normal' or indeed a message. Who showed the Egyptians and the myans how to build pyramids .. In the same formation, with the same technique... Thousands of miles apart.. With no reporters tv, or newspapers.?? I was sceptical, until I stood for a while with binoculars and looked.. It was not a star... I checked the planetary alignments .. That was not it either... The colours were outstanding.. And moved across the sky... Hundreds of miles within an hour then Gone... Stars do not visually move.. Unless I am mistaken.

    How strange that one old man and his daughter with a cheap camera were the only people to see the so-called UFO's. Dear oh dear. how long are we going to be listening and reporting such claptrap?
