Both Rob Davies and Chris Felton are Gateshead Radio hosts and they were out doing recording of an item on the centenary of the medieval combat of Otterburn among the English and Scotting when they drew out their camera for recording the eerie form after considering it to be weird that he had beige RAF clothing on. They found “this man” waiting besides a rural highway close to Belsay at about 11.30pm. He had been pointing his arm for getting a lift. When they made a U-turn for picking “the phantom” vanished. They later found out that the just behind the place where this figure was an RAF crash had taken place while a 1943 schooling exercise was underway.
