The “Dudley Dorito UFO” is the term given to the black triangular craft that has been spotted hovering above the West Midlands conurbation of the United Kingdom since 2007. There has been several reported sightings of the strange hovering craft by many different people. This time, a family claims to have captured the ‘Dudley Dorito UFO’ on video, with great details.

A mysterious triangular UFO dubbed the ‘Dudley Dorito’ has re-appeared in the region’s skies with the latest sighting reported near to a Midlands beauty spot.
Property worker Gary Nock and his family were on the car park of the Badgers Sett pub, Hagley, when they saw the distinctive object flying overhead.
The 52-year-old said the UFO, a black triangle with white lights at each end, was flying at low altitude from the direction of Birmingham.
He said the object had turned silently in the air and they had eventually lost sight of it as it passed over the Clent Hills.
The sighting occurred at around 6.40pm on Wednesday and Mr Nock immediately looked it up on the internet after returning home. And he said the UFO bore a close resemblance to the “Dudley Dorito” first spotted over the skies of the Black Country a few years ago.
Mr Nock said he, his wife Susan, daughter Claire and her boyfriend Jamie Burgoyne had just arrived at the pub to have a meal.
“We were just getting out of the car when we saw this object overhead. It was very low in the sky and could easily be seen,” he said.
“At first I thought it could have been a jet but no aircraft has those types of lights to my knowledge.
“It banked to the one side and made no sound whatsoever which was also strange. It was so low we lost sight of it over the tree line of the Clent Hills. When we got back Jamie and I looked it up on the internet and saw the stories about the Dudley Dorito and what we saw does bear a resemblance to it.”
Like every other paranormal or UFO related video posted here on GhostTheory, this one looks too convenient. I’m going to reserve judgement on the video until the video is examined by professionals and there is a follow-up investigation on the sighting. I’ve seen many convincing UFO videos in the past, most are easy to dispel but every so often I see one that baffles me. This one, isn’t one of them. Although I do find the explanations for the Dudley sightings quite amusing:
Typhoon Eurofighter explanation
At 16.10 hours on Monday 14 January 2008 a sonic boom thought to have been created by an RAF Eurofighter Typhoon was heard in Shropshire. Callers to local radio stations described seeing two large aircraft in the area and reports that a Eurofighter had suffered an undetermined malfunction resulting in a 30,000 ft plunge causing a sonic boom which shook the county. Nearby RAF Shawbury and the Ministry of Defence denied any involvement.
Local press compared descriptions of the unidentified object and that of the Eurofighter and suggested the sightings were linked due to the similarities.
Project Condign explanation
According to the top-secret report UAP in the UK Air Defence Region, aka Project Condign, Black Triangle (UFO) sightings are likely to be caused by a supernormal atmospheric plasma phenomenon akin to Ball Lightning. Bouyant Plasma formations are hypothesized to create electromagnetic or other energy fields which refract light, creating the appearance of a black triangle or polygon between 3 or more points of light.
