Men in Black and Personal Experiences


I personally believe there are two types of Men in Black (MIB) I will discuss both. I do believe I have had experiences of both and I will discuss personal encounters of others and myself.

It is commonly thought that the MIB first appeared during the 1940’s and arguably the 1950’s.  There is evidence to suggest otherwise and encounters can relate back to the late 1890’s (The UFO Silencers: Mystery of the Men-In-Black). Suggestions that Cotton Mather a 17th century witch hunter, who was involved in the Salem Witch Trials was visited by darkly dressed figures.

Nigel Wright a UFO researcher found a report in Barmouth Advertiser (dated 1905) and a report in the Exmouth Journal newspaper (dated, 21st May, 1909) indicating possible MIB sightings.  Reports in the early 1900’s of MIB being seen, near Machiavellian in Wales.

The MIB are thought to be associated with UFO related incidents only, this is incorrect.  MIB have been seen after paranormal activity of ghosts, poltergeist, monsters, and energy forms and people reading up on UFO activity, Ouija Boards, Devil worshipping, MIB seem to cover all anomalous phenomena. MIB appeared in 1960’s at the famous Mothman sighting in West Virginia at Point Pleasant and several UFO’s were seen around the same time.

The aim of the MIB is to silence the witness, researcher or whoever is taking an interest in the general paranormal but more so UFO related activity.  They have succeeded in many cases and any evidence is taken away.

 Descriptions of the MIB:

Type one:

They are often seen in two’s or threes (but have been seen on their own and in fours), usually in 1950’s black Cadillac or a Lincoln in the USA, 1960’s Rolls Royce or Jaguars in the UK.  Ultra violet or blue glowing light is sometimes seen in the vehicles. Dressed in a black suit, black tie, black hats and a white shirt, some wear sunglasses and some carry brief cases.  If more than one, they almost look identical with an oriental or foreign appearance with a smooth skin and a lack of facial hair, with black shiny hair and they have odd and strangely spaced eyes.

Their voices are expressionless, cold and mechanical and they seem to possess telepathic powers, mind control tricks. They seem to know information about a person that no one else knows. Some people describe them as disappearing into thin air, one minute they are there and the next minute they are gone without any trace. They claim they work for the Air Force, investigating UFOs but make it clear that you should not talk about any experiences you have had and some witnesses receive threats to their life if they do choose to talk about an encounter.  Some believe that the MIB are of an extra-terrestrial origin.

Colonel George P. Freeman, the spokesperson for Project Blue Book at the Pentagon gave a statement:

“Mysterious men dressed in Air Force uniforms or all in black and bearing impressive credentials from government agencies have been silencing UFO witnesses. We have checked a number of these cases, and these men are not connected to the Air Force in any way. We haven’t been able to find out anything about these men. By posing as Air Force officers and government agents, they are committing a Federal offense. We would sure like to catch one, unfortunately the trail is always too cold by the time we hear about these cases, but we are still trying.”

Witnesses become dizzy, fearful and nauseous once the MIB leave.  Their lives either change by becoming successful or lose everything and some do turn to addictions and many feel they have been victimized.

 Type two: 

There are suggestions that the MIB are part of an unknown branch of the Ministry of Defence, CIA or secretive government agent.  Bill Moore (author and former UFO researcher) suggests they are members of the Air Force Special Activities Centre (AFSAC).

Thought the Freedom of Information Act in USA and UK, documents obtained show that the MIB are attached to the British Royal Air Force Provost and Security Services.  Documents in USA show the MIB being agents of the FBI.

It has been suggested that the Office of Scientific Investigation and Research (O.S.I.R) are the MIB.  The organization conducts scientific research into anomalous phenomena such as supernatural, paranormal, metaphysical and parapsychological.  Their true agenda is unknown but they operate independent from private organizations and all governments (

Other Ideas:

Reports of other forms of intimidation that is outside of the above two:

An enormous beastly creature with a foul odour and huge red eyes that visits people. An invisible entity that violates the body, leaving the body covered in scratches.


Black unmarked helicopters have followed people, the common thought is that it is the military and the helicopters are stealth aircraft, which are not detected on radar.  Other suggestions say that UFO’s are disguising themselves as helicopters.

People being watched from the distance is quite common, sometimes by single men dressed in black, with black overcoat, black trousers, black shoes, black hat and a nearby black car.

Some researchers are suggesting that the MIB are occult based and might be Demons.

Suggestions of MIB being from the future, time travellers, the problem I have with this is why not update their clothes and the vehicles they drive.

Military and ex-military personal are not excluded from encounters with the MIB, some have reported incidents.

Some researchers, media people and writers have suffered a mysterious death.

Below are some accounts I have had with who I believe are the MIB.

I personally have come across the men in black, not actually meeting them but knowing they are there.  While at Rendlesham Forest on 15th August 2008 with another person.  A few things happened that, proved the military were watching or the MIB? As we left Rendlesham Forest, driving between the B1084 and the A1152 a black van appeared behind us from nowhere.  It followed us down the road, I saw the passenger, he was all in black with very short hair, typical military looking.  The van left us at the roundabout, but my mobile phone did not work until a day after.

The person I was with went back to Rendlesham during the week.  He phoned me to say the black van has parked across the car park entrance; he could not get out of the car park.  While I was on the phone to him, the van disappeared, the car park is gravel and the van leaving would have been heard by him.  I told him to get out of there.  On his way home, the van appeared with an additional car, following him.  He said he would go on msn when he got home in about half an hour.  An hour later, nothing, I kept trying to phone him and could not get through.  Two hours later, he was home and said that he just got home and could not understand why I kept saying why it took him so long.  Later, I was told what happened; apparently, he was stopped at Martlesham.  He was asked alot of questions but after that, he cannot remember anything. I believed him and still do, this could explain about the time loss.

On the 30th September or 1st October 2010, while travelling on the A14 from Ipswich towards Gorleston with three other people and without stopping at Rendlesham or that area.  We approached the roundabout that turned off onto the A1152 toward Sutton Hoo and Rendlesham Forest, I joking said, I wonder about the MIB appearing.  I feel my phone is tracked, further down the A14 a car appeared out of nowhere.  It had extremely bright headlights that filled the car and dazzled the driver and anyone else in the car.  It did not over take; the road was quiet, so overtaking would not have been a problem.  The car followed us for a while and then it disappeared into thin air.  I would suggest this encounter is a type one.

During the early part of the year of 2011, I got a warning! I was told face to face to stay away from investigating Rendlesham and Lakenheath was mentioned.  I was told, it would be quite easy for me to go ‘missing’, then I pointed out I was very vocal and I would be missed if I just disappeared!  A lot more could be said about this, but the main point is there for everyone to see!  This would have to be a type two encounter.

On the 8th March 2011 a friend and I went to Rendlesham, we went to RAF Bentwaters, Butley end of Friday Street.  While we were looking around, we had a car turn up, driving around and the car was near where we were going.  They were an old couple and seemed to be watching us, this was confirmed when another car pulled up beside them and we were later watched by this other black car.  Another car appeared and was watching us.  We decided to leave and go to the oyster pub at Butley to get something to eat.  While driving, we came to a junctionand the black 4×4 was waiting to turn, I stared and he raised his hand in acknowledgement, I took it as saying, yes, we know you know we are there.

We arrived at the pub; I decided to have a cigarette and the black 4×4 drove past and did see me.  We left the pub and went to Capel Green, farmer’s house end.  We saw the black 4×4 again several times.  Then we had an unmarked apache turn up, followed by another unmarked apache.  I stood waving at them and we took photos because they were taking photos of us.


We decided to leave there and drive around to Woodbridge Base, Sutton Hoo side.  The whole time the Apaches were following us and then they left.  We decided to find somewhere to eat and then realised we were being followed.  The driver had to go at speed to lose them, which we did in the end. Some would argue that the apaches were on training there, as it is well known they train at the forest from RAF Wattisham, but they were unmarked and I have been to the forest for years and never seen them before.  However, it does not explain the strange behaviour of three different cars.

On the 21st June 2011, I went to Rendlesham Forest with two different male friends.  Nothing out of the ordinary until got into the so-called landing site.  We heard what sounded like apache helicopters; we left as we thought we would be able to see them from the farmer’s field.  We got to the farmers field and could not see them, but I remembered an encounter someone else had of helicopters in the farmer’s field and decided we needed to get back within the trees.  We headed back to track 10; we could still hear the apaches but only saw them once at the bottom of the track, near Woodbridge base.  We walked towards the base and when we were about 10 minutes away, the apaches left.  When we went to East gate we could hear the apaches in the distance, it sounded like they were over Bentwaters.  Was this training or not, I do not know, but I do know it scared the crap out of me but it would not a second time.

I was not sure, if I should include this or not as not sure, if MIB related or not.  On the 3rd May 2012, we were driving home for an investigation at Harwich along the A12 heading towards Ipswich.  A car appeared behind us, pulled up alongside us, turning their lights off.  They then slowed down so they were behind us and then disappeared.

The 17th May 2012 I was on my way to Chillingham Castle Weekend, we were driving on the A17 near Newark, a drone appeared and flew over drone - Copyfrom the right and positioned itself into the lane we were in and was flying low, was this coincidence or not? A friend asked for Freedom of Information (FOIA) request, the reply stated that there were no Drones in the UK at that time.  I know what I saw, another passenger have confirmed what the drone was etc.  So make your own minds up on this one!

On the 27th May 2012, travelling back from near Bury St Edmunds to Norwich on the A1088 we had a strange encounter.  Another car from our group was in front of us.  A car appeared behind us from nowhere.  The first thing I noticed, how bright the headlights were.  The driver slowed down, so the car could overtake as the road was quiet and straight enough for it to overtake.  It kept following us for quite a while and we lost sight of the car in front of us, due to us slowing down.  When entering Thetford, we did not take the turning on the roundabout that we should have, but the other car did.  We went around the roundabout and then took the right turning.  Driving up the road, we saw the car parked at a junction, it saw us and it pulled out and sat in the middle of the road, I told the driver not to stop, she slowed down and the car eventually moved.

The 24th August 2012, I contacted RAF Lakenheath via email about UFO’s seen over Norfolk.  Since then I have contacted them several times in different ways but had no written response of any kind.

The 27th August 2012 I went to the Brickmakers in Norwich with a friend and one of my daughters and her friend.  While there, we had our photo taken at the time we did not think too much of it.  Later when I was alone, sitting out the back as I did not like the band that was on.  A bloke was out there, nothing unusual there, and then another bloke came out and was giving me dirty looks, staring, went over and talked to the other one and they moved away.  The second guy went to go back in, giving me the same sort of looks as before.  Then straightaway the first guy came over and spoke to me, first thing he said was you are psychic and you do the cards, my reply was, you must be too otherwise how would you know that.  Anyway, he then talked about all subjects possible and it was amazing how much we had in common with our interests.  We exchanged phone numbers and agreed to meet up at another time.  I got home and the friend of mine had sent me a text message, saying that a car was waiting for her when she got home, sitting opposite her house. The car was as far on the path as possible, not taking up much of the road. As my friend arrived home, the woman in the car got on her mobile phone.  My friend took a pen out and noted the number plate and at that point, the woman drove off rather quickly but she did not seem familiar with the area and panicked when she drove further into the road instead of coming out the way she came. My friend had no reason to be paranoid or suspicious of people at that point.

The next morning, I thought about the man from the night before and realised I might have been had, this proceeded with lots of swearing.  He was talking about everything that I have an interest in or can do; it was as if he was given a rundown of me.  Anyway, I do a bit of mouthing off on Facebook, as I know my Facebook is watched, but I decided to text him anyway, but got nothing back.  That night was odd, the bloke seemed to appear at the end of the night, the second guy I did not see during the whole night and he would have stood out if he were there, the reasons I will not disclose here, but if you want to know, message me.  Maybe I would not have thought too much of it, if it were not for the fact of the car waiting for my friend when she got home and another incident that has happened to her since.  The funniest part of this thou are that UFO’s and anything alone those lines were not mentioned, everything else but not UFO’s, that I find quite funny.  I still have the mobile number.

During the same week a male friend of mine who have been witness to some MIB incidents with myself, was being followed and this bloke was seen twice, he gave me the description of the second man from the Brickmakers but I cannot 100% confirm this as I did not see the man at that time.  I will just state that he did not know what this second man looked like or anything about him.

The friend that was with me at the Brickmakers on the 27th August 2012 had another strange experience on 12th October 2012.  She was walking along Newport Beach towards Caistor when she noticed a young man dressed in dark glasses, thin build, short dark hair, black suit. He was sitting on bench and he stayed there until they got up to the dune that was almost where he was and then he scarpered. This friend has no interest in Rendlesham, she has not researched into the incident, and we do not talk about anything that is related!

I have always been watched and/or monitored from about the age of 17 years old but had strange things happen since being a young child.  I have had my phones monitored/listened to; many other people have confirmed this.  My emails disappear to reappear and I am watched on the internet.  Stopped from accessing some sites on the net, the list could goes on.

On the 17th November 2012, I was with two male friends and two Apache helicopters appeared, both unmarked, while on track 10.  We moved to track 12 near the farmer’s field and the Apaches appeared, of course, I have photos again, were we being watched, it seemed they knew where we were.  We walked past one of the men doing the logging and two of us noticed him getting on his radio just as we passed him.  Not sure on this one but thought it was worth mentioning.

I could list more, but I think the point is made with the above.

 Why do I think I am being watched?

Good question, I have no defined answer to this, but will list some reasons to maybe why.

Around the time, I was seeing unexplained stuff in the sky (aged 17); I was regularly followed by vehicles but at a distance while I was on my motorbike.  This happened too often for my liking.  I also remember my bike playing up, all sorts of problems, including it slowing down and only reaching 5 mph for no reason and later it would be all right.  This happened often when cars and the unexplained object in the sky were following me.

My granddad was in the USAF, my dad was born and I knew from a young age he grew up on USAF Lakenheath.  When my dad when he was dying from cancer, he did tell me he did live on Bentwaters, possibly in the early 1950’s, he never told anyone this, not even my mother, I told her after he died.  I found this odd that he never said anything before, I did ask him a couple of questions, but he gave the look that said he could not answer my questions.  This also explained the interest he had of my visits there and the research I was doing. Maybe they think I know something connected to that place or what actually did go on there and bearing in mind UFO’s were seen in the 1950’s.  I need to find out more of what my granddad done while serving.

I worked for a company that supplied the MOD here and abroad with equipment, I do not think this is connected, but I do not want to rule it out.

I have done so much research on the Rendlesham Forest Incident of 1980, but I have not stuck to UFO’s. I have covered everything possible including experiments that could have taken place there and other areas of research.  Talking to other people that have had MIB experiences, I feel it might be the experiment research that has got their attention as I started that years ago but it could be any research that I have looked at.

I could probably think of more reasons to list.  I am classed as a troublemaker because I have a big mouth and stand up for myself and for others and will say it as it is and nothing frightens me at all and I will never be threatened or blackmailed by anyone!  Hence why I am doing this article!

A friend of mine had an incident during 1989.  A few of us from Essex UFO went in Ron West’s car to Rendlesham Forest, due to reports of UFO activity. Being from Essex none of us knew the area, i had been to Woodbridge once to play football against a team from bentwaters and that match was played off base. We drove around in the dark we saw some flashlights in the woods.  We parked the car and went on foot to investigate.  We came across two big black 4×4 s and about six to eight men dressed in black uniforms. They identified themselves as Greenpeace.  These guys had a lot of equipment and looked like they were ready for battle.   There was Ron, 2 females and myself. These men threatened us, told us to leave or they would make us. We made a Hastie retreat and left. Who they were, if indeed they were Greenpeace, we never found out. I have since contacted Greenpeace, who did eventually get back to me with a polite email saying that they had no records of being in Rendlesham in 1980s that has not to say they would have admited it anyway. Looking back on things, we should have followed it up, but being ejected as UFO nuts, as we were often referred to was nothing unusual. I must point out, as a group; we did not know much about the rendlesham forest incident at the time and Suffolk was not really our area.

I will keep doing what I am doing and nothing will make me change my mind. Should I have published this, the only answer is yes. Am I paranoid, no is the answer and the reason I say no is because other people are with me when 90% of things happen or are witness to something (e.g. net, phone calls etc), if it happened when I was on my own then I would question my own sanity, there are too many witnesses.

This is a link connected to the drone i saw in May 2012 I would suggest that they had drones here all the time and they would not say they had them due to national security.  I am assuming, but as i saw one close to RAF Waddington, then i would say i was right to assume and we all know we are not told anything when it comes to the military.

An RAF base in Britain is being used by America in its controversial drone warfare campaign, it was claimed last night.

Documents seen by The Mail on Sunday reveal that the United States has established a drone ‘operations centre’ in the heart of the Lincolnshire countryside which could be used to co-ordinate attacks in the Middle East and Africa.

Last night, the revelation sparked claims of British complicity in the US Airforce (USAF) assassination programme which is being investigated by the United Nations.

One document requests US security-cleared staff to work at RAF Waddington on a USAF drone called the Predator. The weapon has killed hundreds of people in Pakistan, Somalia and Yemen.

A second document describes a role for a communications technician at the same base ‘supporting 24/7 operations of critical real-time USAF/ANG [Air National Guard] mission operations’.

  1. 536483 711734Hello! I just wish to give a huge thumbs up for the very good information youve gotten appropriate here on this post. I will likely be coming back to your weblog for far more soon. 924820

  2. This is something that I have extensively studied, and looked into on various parallels across the world. The black fedora shadow figure is not something that is specific to one country nor is it based on any specific folklore or urban legend. In fact, many people (especially children) have seen these beings while they were young – and even continue to see them later in life. Most people that experience this “phenomenon” and I use that term very loosely, do not come forward with their experiences in fear of personal safety and social standing. Every 1 person that comes forward, accounts for about 1 in 1000 or so unspoken experiences.

    There is a very dark and sinister story behind these beings, and the only reason they appear with human characteristics is so we can associate them to a being that belongs amongst the populous. They have been seen in every culture, at every stage of human advancement. They have been recorded ever since writings and records have been kept – therefore it is also safe to say that they predate those records. Their forms have changed, but not their actions or intentions.

    The same fedora hat being, and the “men in black (MiB)” are one in the same. There is no difference between the two other than how and when they present themselves. Both seeking suppression of the truth , through fear and oppression to those that they visit. They are searching, for evidence that the time is at hand, and they are searching for a higher knowledge than they themselves possess. This is also why there is no records which can be found of these individuals. The real “boogyman” was first conceived from this same experience – which later was adopted into many various forms and creatures in hollywood.
