The Berwyn Mountain Incident is the second most well known British "UFO crash", after the Rendlesham Forest Incident. It took place on 23 January 1974 on the Berwyn Mountainsmarker in Llandrillomarker, Merionethshiremarker, North Walesmarker. Scientific evidence indicates the event was generated by an earthquake and a combination of a bright meteor widely observed over Wales and Northern England at the time.

The Institute of Geological Sciences (now British Geological Survey) reported that a magnitude 3.5 earthquake was felt at 8.38 that night over a wide area of North Wales and as far as Liverpool. It was not immediately identified for what it was, and since a number of unusual lights in the sky had been observed the same evening, it was considered possible that an aircraft had crashed, or a meteorite had impacted. However, the magnitude of the shock was such that had it been due to impact, the resulting crater would have been large enough to be easily visible.

Within an hour, police searched the Berwyn Mountains and were joined by a RAF rescue team from Valleymarker on Angleseymarker. Nothing was found, and all searches were called off at just after 2 pm the following day.

It was later alleged that a UFO crashed, that non-human bodies were found and that the British Government covered up the event. There were later claims that the area was cordoned off by the military while wreckage was recovered. Also, there were reports that the villages in the vicinity were visited by "Men in Black".

The claim that the area was cordoned off by the military was shown by researcher Andy Roberts to relate to a later event in 1982 when an RAF Harrier jet crashed in the area.
