Friends Rob Davies and Chris Felton were driving down a road near Belsay, Northumberland, England when they capture this image of what appears to be a man dressed in a WW2 British flight suit.

The two said they were on there way home after recording a story on the anniversary of the medieval Battle of Otterburn, between the Scottish and English forces, and were returning along the A696 just after 11.30pm on Wednesday when they spotted the ghostly figure.

Rob, 27, said, “We saw a man standing at the side of the road. We both actually jumped at first because we didn’t see him until very late.”

“He was dressed in a beige color from head to toe, and he was sticking his arm out for a lift, but we could not stop in time because we were doing 60mph.”

“Chris was driving and we decided to turn around for him, but we both agreed that he looked a bit odd.”

“We were two miles north of the nearest village and there was nothing else for miles.”

“We thought we would pick him up if he was real and just make sure he was dropped at the nearest village, and we joked he might be a phantom hitchhiker.”

“I started filming on my iPhone as it seemed a bit odd.”

“We couldn’t remember how far back he was, but we saw him again and slowed.”

“He was dressed in what I can only describe as RAF gear and was holding something under his arm, which looked like a helmet or some kind of bag.”

“We had to turn again so we could pick him up.”

Rob said that this is where it gets really creepy and he went on to say, “It was only seconds and no other car had been past, but when we turned around he was gone.”

“We continued driving and there was nobody walking on either side of the road.”

“We cannot explain it, the only explanation is that he walked off into the darkness.”

“There was another car behind us but he did not stop either.”

“We can only assume this driver would have seen him also as his clothes caught the light of the headlights.”

“It would be interesting if they, or any other motorists on that road, have seen him.”

“We are 100% certain that nobody stopped or we would have seen them pulling over.”

Upon doing some investigating, Rob found out about the plane crash close to where the man was seen standing, which happened during a training exercise back in 1943.

He said, “When we got home, I Googled all of the fatal accidents that has happened on that piece of road, and there are lots. But when I Googled RAF incidents, I found a search result that linked a crash from 1943, and it even lists serial numbers of the plane involved.”

The pilots was Sergeant John Knight, a RAF trainee, and he died in a Spitfire crash at nearby Middlepart Farm in July 1943.

The pilot was 20 or 21 at the time, had grew up in Dorset and was based at RAF Eshott, around 15 miles from where he died.
