Manby Hall in Lincolnshire, UK, was once a key RAF base during world war two and is rumoured to be haunted by a second world war RAF pilot who is sometimes seen wearing a long dark coat.
UK Ghosts Haunts may have proved those rumours are true as they say they have captured the ghost of the RAF pilot on camera while filming a new documentary for their YouTube channel.
The footage shows a dark figure walking past an empty corridor in front of the investigators. They only discovered the figure after reviewing their footage, and they say it wasn’t any member of the team as there wasn’t anyone else in the building.
This is the footage.
Steve Wesson who shot the footage says that he didn’t see anything at the time but he must have seen something out the corner of his eye as he decided to follow something, which turned out to be the figure, into a stairwell.
He said “The security guard went in the left room with two of the team members and I was following filming with a camera.
“I didn’t hear any footsteps in the corridor neither did the rest of the team or the security guard.
“I must have seen something out the corner of my eye for me to go in there but I didn’t really notice it at the time and didn’t take any other notice and rejoined the guys, as you can see there are shadows on the back wall cast from our torch light but no shadows cast from the figure.
“As you can see in the footage, the figure seems to be carrying a torch or bright ball but if this was someone wandering around within the building we would have seen their light and knew they were there.
“After seeing the footage we went back to where it was taken to have a proper look at the room and corridors to find a reasonable explanation for what we caught.
“It is a former RAF base then it was an old people’s home and now it is closed and only security have access to the building. However there are many ghost stories about the hall.
“It was definitely not one of us four and there was definitely no one else in the building.
Steve added “Rumours in the area are that Manby is haunted. I know we all presume that ghosts are a ‘mist’ or ‘shadows’ but what if the footage is of an apparition?
“All I can say is that there was four of us in total in this building and all four of us were accounted for.
“Whatever this was, a human or a ghost, none of us noticed the figure as we turned into a room and no one heard any noise from footsteps on the rubble that is left over these corridors.’
“There is 24 hours’ worth of footage and for something to just walk in and for us to not acknowledge it was there at the time is very weird.
“It’s really strange that a very large figure can pass in front of all of us silently and without being noticed within 15 feet of us.
“It’s really cool because we know where we all were in the building. It’s pretty freaky.’
Is this actually the ghost of the pilot or just a living person walking past?
