Arthur C. Clarke and UFOs.
I am intrigued why Arther C Clerk not writing anything about UFOs.
He would have been one of the earliest guys to have seen UFOs.
UFO recording were reported during the latter part of the war and Hitler had a program which Americans hijacked.
1. He was in the Air Force.
2. He was a radar communication officer.
3. He was a pilot.
4. He was active when Roswell incident happened.
5. Why his services were terminated?
6. He believed in God.
6. Why did he come to Ceylon (apart from his sexual exploits)?
7. Did the MI5 ask him to shut his mouth?
No disclosure of facts and events.
Just being a gentleman, he probably kept this secret all his life.
Instead, he put his effort to Science fiction.
I never read any of his books (simply because they were fiction) to make my own observations.
Was he part of the cover up?
Was he a victim of powerful military?
He had all the credentials including a degree in physics.We will never know the truth!
Second World War
During the Second World War from 1941 to 1946 he served in the Royal Air Force as a radar specialist and was involved in the early-warning radar defense system, which contributed to the RAF's success during the Battle of Britain. Clarke spent most of his wartime service working on ground-controlled approach (GCA) radar, as documented in the semi-autobiographical Glide Path, his only non-science-fiction novel. Although GCA did not see much practical use during the war, it proved vital to the Berlin Airlift of 1948–1949 after several years of development. Clarke initially served in the ranks, and was a corporal instructor on radar at No. 2 Radio School, RAF Yatesbury in Wiltshire. He was commissioned as a pilot officer (technical branch) on 27 May 1943.
He was promoted flying officer on 27 November 1943. He was appointed chief training instructor at RAF Honiley in Warwickshire and was demobilized with the rank of flight lieutenant.After the war he attained a first-class degree in mathematics and physics from King's College London. After this he worked as assistant editor at Physics Abstracts. Clarke then served as chairman of the British Interplanetary Society from 1946 to 1947 and again from 1951 to 1953.
