UK's Ministry of Defence plans to release 50 years of UFO reports sometime in 2020

According to a piece in The Telegraph, the UK's Ministry of Defence has announced plans to make available online over 50 years of UFO sightings reported to the RAF.

The RAF discontinued its UFO reporting program in 2009 after claiming that nothing reported during the five decades of the program posed any sort of threat. UFO sightings are now reported to local police.

The reports are said to be scheduled to show up online (on a dedicated gov.uk web page) sometime during the first part of 2020.
