The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) is said to have blocked public access to documents which reveal a number of strange sightings to impede their “curiosity”.
The CAA has been using European law from 2014 to block access to the public records of sightings or incidents between 2011 and 2017, the Sun reports.
The law reportedly states: “Occurrence information can only be used for the purpose of maintaining or improving aviation safety, and the release of occurrence information to the general public or the media, including in response to Freedom of Information Act (FOI) requests, is not permitted.
“However, if you require occurrence information for the purpose of maintaining or improving aviation safety you are able to make an application to the CAA.”
Although the EU protests that the information is accessible via application, a university professor suggests otherwise.
Dr David Clarke of Sheffield Hallam University was previously granted access to the files.
