Exhall Scareship, Warwickshire


According to David Taylor's excellent article 'Scareships or Motherships : The British phantom airship scare 1909 – 1918', in 1913, an airship or aeroplane, at a considerable height, was seen for about five minutes on a clear moonlit night at about 9.45pm by a number of witnesses ‘of irreproachable character’ including policemen and colliers, in Exhall and Longford. It appeared to be carrying two headlights and a rear light, came from the direction of Leicester and headed west towards Birmingham at high speed.
