Kind of small for a Yeti footprint

A team of Japanese adventurers say they have discovered footprints [in Kathmandu] they believe were made by the legendary yeti said to roam the Himalayan regions of Nepal and Tibet.

“The footprints were about 20 centimetres eight inches long and looked like a human’s,” Yoshiteru Takahashi, the leader of the Yeti Project Japan, told AFP in Kathmandu on Monday.

Takahashi was speaking after he returned with his seven-member team from their third attempt to track down the half-man-half-ape, tales of which have gripped the imaginations of Western adventurers and mountaineers for decades.

UFO skeedadles

A former Top Gun told yesterday how he was ordered to shoot down a massive UFO — over Norwich.

RAF controllers told US pilot Milton Torres to lock on and launch all 24 of his rockets over the city. But as he came within seconds of firing at the alien intruder — the size of an aircraft carrier on his radar — it vanished…

The amazing close encounter is revealed in secret Ministry of Defence X-Files which are declassified today.
