Dad captures spooky footage of 'RAF pilot ghost' haunting abandoned corridor in deserted air force base

A dad-turned-ghosthunter has revealed spooky footage of the 'ghost of an RAF pilot' haunting a corridor in an abandoned air force base.

Steve Wesson, 44, visited Manby Hall, in Lincolnshire, earlier this year with his UK Ghost Hunts team and could not believe his luck when he captured the 'freaky' footage.

The team didn't realise that an unknown figure wanders through the background until looking at the video later that night but Steve insists it could not have been any of his team and there was no one else in the building.

Steve believes he must have seen the shape in the corner of his eye as he followed the suspected phantom into a stairwell, which footage shows was eerily empty.

Manby was a key area for the RAF during WWII and the hall was once used as an RAF base as well as an old people's home before closing down.

Steve, from Kimberley, in Nottingham 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 wondering 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."

It has been said that Manby is haunted by a Second World War pilot who is sometimes seen wearing a long coat.

Steve said: "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."

Steve said: "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."
