On 12 January 1993, smaller Icelandic vessels had to take shelter at Langeness Fjord because of appalling weather conditions which continued for three weeks. By the 6 February 1993, the weather had improved sufficiently for ships to put back to sea. Icelandic Coast Guard vessels and gunboats were ordered to take up their original positions on picket duty. All was quiet at sea for the next few days, until suddenly all ships in the area received a message from the American Flotilla, comprised of three Destroyers. The message instructed all ships to stand off and not to approach any closer than three nautical miles. While outside the exclusion zone ships radar’s suddenly detected sixteen airborne objects which were then visibly seen to approach the American vessels and then hover directly above them. Crews on outlying boat saw the brightly lit amber colored objects remain stationary for a short time before they suddenly sped away in unison at great speed. The watching crews were bemused and knew the objects could not possibly have been helicopters since they were too far from land.

On 15 April 1993, all ships involved in the secret operation were ordered to search for yet another American warship which had gone missing. Only two American Destroyers were now visible to the outlying ships. The names of both the remaining American ships had been removed and the crews were seen wearing full battle dress. Elements of the Russian Navy had now joined the operation and were working in unison with the NATO surface fleet at the mouth of the Barents Sea. On one occasion radio communication between the Russian ships were understood to say: We are engaging unknown underwater craft

On 16 April 1993, British newspapers carried the headline, Joint American and Russian Military Exercises About To Take Place. They announced: For the first time since World War Two, joint exercises involving elite American and Russian troops are about to take place in Siberia near the Russian Port of Tiski. No further information was forthcoming.

Information about other incidents did continue to reach me however, such as one that took place on 21 April 1993, when the crew of an Icelandic Airlines aircraft, travelling from London to Iceland, became aware that two large balls of white light had joined them as they passed over the coast of Scotland. The bright glowing ball took up position on either side of the aircraft towards the tail. The objects maintained this position all the way to Iceland and only when the aircraft began its descent to Keflavik Airport did they depart.  NOTE: The above image is CGI.
