I Was Ordered to Shoot Down a UFO

Season 1, Ep. 280

On episode 280 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, we explore the Milton Torres UFO incident. In 2007, the UK's Ministry of Defense released thousands of UFO files to the public. Among them were reports of simple lights in the sky. But some stood out as being truly incredible. One of those was the story of Milton Torres, a decorated United States Air Force pilot, who, while stationed in England in 1957, was ordered to shoot down a UFO. What exactly was caught on radar, tracked by the pilot, and locked on to fire at? You'll hear directly from Milton Torres about that harrowing day.
