Quote from the article:
One of the RAAF’s base level, unusual aerial sightings files, which I found on RecordSearch earlier this month, has just been digitised for me. I am waiting for two others to be digitised.
It is National Archives of Australia file series A9755 control symbol 10, barcode 3533543. It’s status is ‘Open with exception.’ The file was formerly a Department of Defence file, simply titled ‘Unusual Aerial Sightings,’ number 5/113/AIR Part 10, held by number 82 bomber wing, Amberley RAAF base in Queensland.
The digitised version has 39 pages, but there is a standard blue mask on the file indicating that 2.5 cms thickness of other documents are on the file, but outside the Archive Act.
The only way to obtain these remaining papers is by submitting a request under the Freedom of Information Act to the Department of Defence. As this would cost around Aust$1,000 I am not going to do this. If any reader would like to go through this process, the Australian UFO community would be very grateful.”
