Real life X Files to show ‘hundreds and hundreds’ of close encounters with UFOs
Real life X Files about to be made public for the first time will reveal 'hundreds and hundreds' of close encounters with UFOs, according to a former US Senate chief.
Harry Reid reckons the publishing of military encounters with unexplained craft will trigger a `Wright Brothers' era in the hunt for alien life.
The siblings' first powered flight in 1903 paved the way for modern air travel.
The ex-US Senate majority leader reckons the release of contact with `unidentified aerial phenomena' later this month (June) will have a similar impact on future UFO research.
"I believe it’s just as if we were starting airplanes. Airplanes were not understood very quickly,'' he said.
"There’s so much to learn. Technologically everything today is happening quickly.
"UFOs fascinate people who are pilots, physicists, because they can’t understand how these UFOs have no vapour trail, no lights on them, yet they can go so fast, so quickly.
"If it was under the technology we have today it would kill the pilots. We’re at the infancy of it.''
In 2007 Mr Reid, 81, helped launch the Pentagon's Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program to examine UFO sightings over US military bases.
He said he thought there would be '20 or 40' sightings.

But he said: "They had many sightings – hundreds and hundreds of these sightings. I was stunned. It was hundreds of them.''
The secret £15 million operation was shut down after five years.
But Mr Reid wants UFO research to become an 'ongoing program' once more with input from space pioneers such as Elon Musk.
The former senator credits the multi-billionaire's SpaceX rocket launches with helping re-ignite the public's interest in UFOs.
"The work that Musk has done is really breathtaking and how it has influenced the public forum today – people are fascinated by what he’s doing,'' Mr Reid said.
"We have these spaceships going up and coming back, he fixes them up, sends them back up.
"There’s every indication that there’s going to be a lot more space travel.
"They’ll have colonies on the moon and we’ll have room beyond that.''
Britain is set to re-launch its own team of UFO investigators following the publication of the files – ordered by Donald Trump in one of his last acts as US President.
His former director of national security John Ratcliffe has said the report will include previously unknown sightings from `all over the world'.
Part of the mission is to determine if any unexplained objects sighted have links to adversarial foreign governments' and thethreat they pose to US military assets and installations'.
That could prompt the Ministry Of Defence to bump up its own probe into UFOs spotted in the skies over Britain.
The UK's original X Files squad was axed in 2009 after nearly 60 years of official research and investigations.
Depending on the findings of the US report the MoD's UFO desk could be re-established.
A source said: "I think that if there was enough evidence to suggest that there was something, and that we needed to do it as well as the US, then of course we'd think about it. We'd look at it.
"There's all sorts of things that we wouldn't rule out and this would certainly be one of them.''
