Welcome to B.E.A.M.S.

Founded in 1991, our society consists of a
team of active reporters and field investigators who
factually gather, study and disseminate evidence relating to Earth Mysteries, (e.g. Ley Lines, Terrestrial Energies and Ancient Site Anomalies), Strange Aerial Happenings, (e.g. Unidentified Flying Objects or UFO's), and The Paranormal, (e.g. Spirit and Psychic Phenomena).

Hi, my name is John and I have decided to become part of the BEAMS Team.

Firstly, this subject has been a lifelong interest. I have been involved in Aviation since I was 15, and I spent many years in the RAF, travelling the world, leaving just after the Falklands War.

There are few places that I have not seen. I then worked in the Middle East, coming back to this country as Engineering Manager of General Aviation company at Bristol Airport. Following this, I was offered a lecturing post at Brunel College, teaching the CAA/JAA License, then Rotary Wing at Yeovil. On retirement, I was elected as General Secretary of the Association of Licensed Aircraft Engineers, combining this with membership of various RAeS committees and initiatives, such as "Youth into Aerospace". Whilst on the RAeS Accreditation Committee, I visited many of the companies and Aerospace Universities, to approve their personal development programs for Young Engineers. Winding down, I became an External Examiner for Coventry University, mainly working with Emirates in Dubai.

Needless to say, I always have a camera and binoculars to hand but at 77 (and slightly arthritic) am not inclined to place much value on viewing fuzzy and indistinct UFOs; the reports are interesting but add little to the main debate. My interests go beyond this. I do not doubt alien objects at all but consider that this matter will not be resolved by viewing indistinct light sources at a distance, using our current technology. We live in a designated Dark Skies Area, in fact just below the Space Watch Observatory. I am a member of the British Society of Dowsers, and was a long time member of the Dowsing Research Group, which is interested in the Quantum aspects of the dowsing phenomena, which covers Remote Viewing.

In hours of sky watching, an aviation professionals habit, I have only had one sighting of a UFO, which on analysis turned out to be a flock of geese, albeit very high. I have also had paranormal experiences, but that goes hand in hand with Dowsing and we take it for granted.

Overall perhaps I am not of much use, taking into account your highlighted text, but might be able to contribute in an academic role, with the occasional observation. Incidentally, I agree with the comments on your website re Nick Pope. Part of my job in the RAF was to deal with UFO reports from the general public as the first point of contact, and forward the subsequent formal Report to him for filing!

Beer\wine making,gardening, aeromodelling and a vintage MGB are amongst my other interests.
