26th july 2012

At 9.30am on the 26th of June, Monique Klinkenbergh flew over the Knoll Down area just west of Avebury in
Wiltshire. She filmed the area as she flew over it, and a still from her footage shows that, at this time, there
was no crop circle in the field at Knoll Down. (The crop circle was later discovered in the front right hand
corner of the pinkish field in the still photo below):

The next day she learned that there was a new crop circle in the area, and that it had been discovered from a
microlight aircraft by Bart Klein Beernink. The same day she interviewed both Bart's parents, Jan and
Charlene Klein Beernink, and the pilots Julian Midder and Tony Hughes. The following information has been
provided by Monique Klinkenbergh:

During the morning of the 26th of June the pilots Julian Mider og Tony Hughes had several times flown over
the Knoll Down area without spotting any crop circle. The area is only a few hundred metres away from
Yatesbury airfield.

At 11.10am the Dutch crop cicle enthusiast Bart Klein Beernink took off in a microlight from Yatesbury
Airfield. He flew with pilot Julian Midder:

The stems with the bent nodes were all fully suspended on the ground.
(The stems did not strech upwards from the nodes, a state referred to as phototropism,- the plant's natural
tendency to reorient itself to sunlight.)
