David Cayton Biography
David Cayton served 10 years in the Royal Air Force as a photographer from 1955 to 1965, enjoying interesting ‘Cold War’ times and serving in the U.K., Cyprus and Germany. During last 18 months of Service became involved in NDT (Non-Destructive Testing) and in 1966 he joined the Engineering Research Department at Hawker Siddeley Aviation Manchester which later became British Aerospace & BAe Systems.
By 1970 he had been promoted to Head of NDT in the Design Department Laboratories at Woodford being responsible for developing NDT Procedures for mandatory implementation by the Airline Operators and the MoD. These were essential for critical inspection for hidden fatigue cracking and corrosion inside airframes and components utilising radiography, ultrasound and other NDT methods - used on aircraft types such as: Vulcans, Shackleton, Andover, Nimrod, Argosy, HS748, and later Victors, VC10, amongst others for which BAe Manchester ultimately held the ‘Design Authority’ responsibility.
After 27 years’ service David I took an early retirement package in January 1993 nad in October that year he became a UFO Investigator for Quest International reporting to ex-police sergeant Tony Dodd and Director, Graham Birdsall. In 1994, joined the Centre for Crop Circle Studies and spent approximately 12 years researching the crop circles, mainly in Wiltshire.
In 1997, decided that investigating the problem of unusual animal deaths and mutilations might produce more positive evidence that our planet is being regularly visited by advanced beings from other planets and was fortunate to enlist the support and help from a Professor of Pathology, who agreed to examine tissues and also smaller complete animal bodies. David teamed up with Phil Hoyle in 2001 and formed the Animal Pathology Field Unit (APFU) and has since given numerous radio and TV interviews on the subjects of UFO’s Crop Circles and the animal mutilations. Taken part in Live TV Studio Debates and contributed to several TV Documentaries, latterly with Richard D. Hall of RichPlanet TV
