UFO Files book jacket by David ClarkeThe close encounter between an Italian airline pilot and a flying object is one of many reported UFO sightings among 19 files that Britain’s National Archives posted Monday to the Web.

While the 1,500-page batch of documents debunks a host of UFO sightings filed between 1986 to 1992, some of them, like the near-miss with Air Alitalia remain unexplained.

More files can be viewed at the National Archives here: www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/ufos.
