Richard Thomas – who has written 35 posts on UFOMystic. Richard Thomas lives in Swansea, South Wales, and graduated from Swansea University with a BA in American Studies in 2007. Richard grew up watching science fiction shows, including his all-time favourite program: Doctor Who. As a child, this enthusiasm for Sci-Fi evolved into an interest in space, UFOs and other esoteric subjects.
In 2008, Richard began to write his regular 'Room 101' column for the popular esoteric website Binnall of America, a bi-weekly column focusing on parapolitics and the unexplained, in addition to interviews with some of the leading researchers in these fields, including among others, Nick Pope, Timothy Good and Nick Redfern. Soon after that, he started writing a Sci-Fi / TV related column for Stuart Miller's Alien Worlds Magazine.
In 2009, he expanded his contributions to BoA with a second column, titled 'Sci-Fi Worlds,' exploring the connection between science fiction and the esoteric.
Recently, he’s contributed feature articles for publications such as the glossy Paranormal Magazine and Scott Burditt’s Doomwatch Fanzine.
I used to be a full-on believer that something anomalous occurred on the Berwyns.
But there’s an important point to remember. In both 1972 and 1982, military aircraft crashed on the Berwyn mountains in roughly the same area, and there was a heavy military presence, security measures etc, and there’s some evidence that people relating what they truly believe to have been relative to the events of 1974 may have been related to the recovery of a military aircraft in 1972.
