where to start...or as Frank Herbert wrote "a beginning is a delicate place".

have been investigating the paranormal since I was at secondary school in the mid 1970s.

have been at various times a member of, and contributor to the journals of ASSAP, SPI, SSPR and the Ghost Club. :oops:

Have been on far to many investigations over the years to list, organised a few, then became so despondant with the TV hype (or is that tripe) of appalling so called reality paranormal shows - you know the ones, that I took a back seat to it all and started writing up my experiences and researching airfields. There are far more haunted airfields that you may think.

These days all I concern myself with are haunted airfields - of which I am currently engaged in writing a 3 volume set - the first volume is published later this year. I have even taken to the field again at 2 places that I have been graciously invited to.

anyway...that's me - oh and I ride a Triumph morotcycle, drink tea and have been a Vegetarian for years. Some say that I am a medium.. :shock:

they lie I am an extra large. :D

Chris

Very interesting. You can ignore my comment on the other thread asking about your book now.
If NGI can be of any help to you in future don't hesitate to ask.

greetings back...

In our little bit of the universe...apart from the Former NAAFI (Snooker Centre) at Thornaby have you any other accounts in the area that you know of (NE that is)..

I have general accounts from houses that are on the site of former Thornaby, one account from a building that was the Army Cadet base for a while - don't know where or if it still is...and a fascinating account from woods near the former airfield (probably long gone) which was the location of a crash site.

others.

I have one tentative account from Greatham (West Hartlepool) - which probably wont make the book as it's too airy fairy.

Croft circuit has a Canadian airman wandering around but they don't like to talk about it...so that's getting sidelined as well.

am contemplating the write up of Usworth and not really sure yet what to put in - many accounts and a lot of chaff amongst the wheat....need to have a really long bath and a think about it.

then Ouston which is an Army Barracks

N. Yorkshire by comparison seems to need just a hoop thrown in the air and it's bound to land on a haunted airfield :D

I'm sure people will chip in if they know of any other places in the local area.

I do know that 'The George' hotel at Durham Tees Valley Airport is reputedly haunted by the ghost of an airman.

Thanks for that.

I'm guessing you've got the NE Air Museum covered too.

Feel free.

Even though may of the topics have been inactive for a while, we're all still here behind the scenes, so I'm sure people will reply to your posts when they drop in.

It was here I saw my first "ghost" .. well, half of one .. a pair of disembodied legs walking amongst the aircaft in the main hanger. In fact, a number of people saw them and wasn't just me (and everyone was accounted for).

Plus, my "beastial" shadow figure (tho I admit this could have just been my eyes due to the distance involved). Dark shadow in one corner of the hanger (I was at the opposite corner) from which a "beastial" figure emerged - all gangly arms and legs - leapt onto the side of hanger wall and began "crawling" towards me at a fair clip. Not as fast as me running in the opposite direction tho .. :) ..

Out of practice tho and getting on a bit now .. the Anti-Technology gene has switched on and that means I've lost all knowledge of even operating the TV remote control let alone doing fancy stuff like posting on here in a correct fashion!

Dark shadow - all gangly arms and legs


strange you should mention this - I witnessed something similar when I was 17 or 18 out in a field when in the South east...felt bloody cold and none to pleasant, writhing is the best description I can name and was appraching me slowly - put the wind up right me and I scarpered.

later discovered that the area was used for Black Magic rituals.


doubt the NEAM allows these though :D

I'm sure some NGI members saw something like this in the Golden Fleece, and didn't you have something similar in the upstairs corridor of the Busby Stoop Anth?

My first air museum was the North East Air Museum, close to Sunderland.... just a few months after getting to know my blood mother (she was out of my life for 30 years and we kinds got back in touch with each other) well her new husband (a well known medium around north east) invited me to the air museum and said that he was best of friends with one of the spirit pilots... as we watched a hunt taking place we where basically in their shadows and staying out of their way, I remember each of those people where paying £30 - £40 a ticket, as I was a guest and just alone with him, her and another guy we waited for the paying customers to go for their break, then we 4 went into the big steel barn with a lot of planes. We knew we where the only ones in there at the time and turned our torches off, waited and then the step father and blood mother done some calling out, he named himself stating that he was a friend and to give us a sign that he was still around... we waited and a few seconds later a metalic sound was made, like it was some metal object thrown to the floor, was kinda close too... shame we couldn't of steel a little longer, a few minutes later the group had come back, so we had to leave

the writhing nasties do occur - fortunately not too common, but I do believe firmly that they have a brooding negativity to them - best avoided if possible.

Interesting place the NEAM...have seen 2 German aircrew in the Hangar you mention - by the door just looking....then there was an RAF type in Uniform (not Battledress) walking down the stairs from the new Mezzanine floor near the entrance lobby..he stopped about halfway down and just stared..

lots of unexplained swirls going on.

and there's an are of the hangar I don't like much in the far corner (diagonally across) from the entrance..I think there's a helicopter over there (if memory serves)...a very bad feeling. quite hostile in fact.


always annoying when things are getting interesting at a location and the punters come back mob handed...ere we go...ere we go etc ad infinitum.

sad but true

It's why you've got so many teams constantly running guest nights at all the usual haunts. Sure it offsets your costs for the location and it gets you out more, but in no way can an event like this be classed as a serious investigation.

I have organised a few events for charity...and sorry - never again

the great unwashed (oops) havent got a clue about what they are doing and actaually expect something to happen

small team where everyone knows each other and where they are all comfortable is the best approach. get better results too.
