“We did see the object again. It was hovering low, like moving up-and-down anywhere from 10-to-20 feet -- back up, back down, back up. There was a red light on top and there were several blue lights on the bottom. But there was also an effect maybe like a prism … with rainbow lights on top, scattered about .. [and] several other colors of light. It was weird … It was a tremendous size. It even surprised me that it was able to fit into the clearing. A tremendous size -- and I use the word 'tremendous' carefully. It was a round, circular shape. I hate to say like a "plate", but it was thicker at the center than it was at the edge.”
LF – Adrian, describe what the machine looked like.
AB – That I won’t forget. It was the first time I’ve seen one like it. It was circular shaped it looked like a pancake. It was thick in the middle, and it would narrow out toward the edges. I’d seen lights, all kind of lights. It would have been a beautiful sight, you know. The lights were so bright that I could only see certain parts of the craft, and there were a bunch of little gadgets on it, too, like some planes got, and other little gadgets that I never even seen on aircraft before.
LF – Was it made of metal?
AB – I would assume.
LF – OK. About how close did you get to this thing?
AB – I’d say I was about, within six to ten feet of it.
LF – And how big was it?
AB – It wasn’t a humongous thing, but it was of a very good size.
LF – Compare it with the size of, say, a Chevy or a Dodge or something like that. Make a comparison with something in size–a truck, tractor trailer in length.
AB – About as wide as an A-10. From what I could see in the beginning, it was very big, but I couldn’t really tell exactly how big as big as a medium-sized house, I would say.
LF – And larger than maybe twelve feet?
AB – Yes, in height, definitely yes.
LF – And how big are the A-10s in length?
AB – About forty feet.
LF – Did you hear any sounds when you were up near it?
AB – The only sound that I heard was like a rumble, like when you hear a jet pass over. But I don’t know whether it was the choppers or it was the sound coming out of the machine down there.
LF – You didn’t see any engines on this machine, right?
AB – No, I didn’t.
LF – When it moved, when it took off, did you hear anything or feel anything?
AB – When it took off, it was, like, hovering. It went up and, like, took off at about a forty-five-degree angle, and if you would have blinked, you would have missed it.
LF – That fast?
AB – That fast. And we got a cold draft of air that lasted about a good ten seconds. You know, like when you get a good blow of dust or wind. No noise though; I do remember that.
LF – OK. When it took off, were you able to see the bottom of it?
AB – No, I can’t say I did.
LF – Did the colors change at all?
AB – The colors were constantly changing while I was there. I remember, it was different colors, and they just, like, go on and off or go to a lower shade.
LF – When the machine was down on the ground, what color was the body of the machine?
AB – I’d say like a blackish greyish.
LF – But it was metal, you’re sure of that?
AB – I’m pretty sure, it had to be metal, yeah.
LF – Black or greyish. And did the machine glow at all when it took off? Did the lights change?
AB – The lights, yes. That’s what it did. It turned, like, into a ball of light.
LF – The whole machine?
AB – The whole machine. And it was like a glow around it, and it just took off.
GB: Can you specify if it was a craft out there, or was it just lights you saw?
AB: There was a landed craft. There was a yellowish haze on the ground; it came up to about knee level, like a low fog, it was very yellow. Everything was so weird, animals were acting strange and nobody had a sense of direction. People had camera equipment, not the normal equipment, and there was a lot of it.
GB: Was Halt out there when it landed?
AB: Let me think. Yeah, when this thing landed, Colonel Halt was already there. You see, I didn’t see it land; it had already landed. I saw it take off; it kind of hovered at first, and then took off. When I arrived it was going in and out through the trees, and at one stage it was hovering. Then it went over to a clearing at the edge of the forest. By the time we got to the clearing it had already landed.
A particularly interesting aspect of the data from all over the world is that electromagnetic effects are frequently observed in association with the presence of UFOs, along with the fact that many observations suggest that what is being observed is a "vehicle" having a plasma region adjacent toil (…) plasma because of bright glows rather than color, changes in the color of the glow associated with changes in velocity, luminous boundary layers
Is everyone forgetting the application of mind-altering drugs during 'debriefings'?
....After the debriefing, Airman Burroughs and I were put on authorized break for six days, so we drove home to Ipswich. I dropped Airman Burroughs off, then went home, changed clothes, and drove back to Woodbridge. But first I stopped by a friend’s place in Ipswich, who was a contractor and painter, who gave me some plaster. Then, I went back out to the forest and the clearing where the three indentations left by the craft we had seen were.
“I poured plaster into the impressions left in the ground by the craft and waited about 40 minutes. Then I pulled them up and put them in the back of my car, just as Maj. Ed Drurry, the Deputy Security Police Commander, and the assistant operations officer showed up. They asked me what I was doing. I told them I was just looking around. They told me they wanted to do the same.
“I didn’t tell them about making the casts, because I didn’t think it would be prudent. Later I found out that the deputy base commander, then-Lieutenant Colonel Halt, had also visited the site later that same day and noticed that there were traces of plaster around the impressions, the indentations, and later, much later, I finally admitted to him what I had done. I needed something for myself, something to prove to me that this had really happened, really physically happened.......

It was not the Condign report's general hypothesis -- i.e., that ufos [redesignated as UAPs] can be accounted for as naturally occurring phenomena -- that finally enabled Burroughs to obtain his medical records. It was the specific statement made in the Condign report identifying Bentwaters 1980 as a site where damaging forms of radiation had likely harmed individuals close to the object arriving in Capel Green that forced the release of Burrough's records and the consequent funding of his surgery by the US Department of Defense.
"The well-reported Rendlesham Forest/Bentwaters event is an example where it might be postulated that several observers were probably exposed to UAP [Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon] radiation for longer than normal UAP sighting periods."
In the meantime, I think it's naive to assume that Condign's unsupported hypothesis has accounted for, and should dispel our interest in, the data obtained in 65 years of military interaction with ufos in the air, on land, and in the sea, which support the thesis that some ufos are physically substantial, technologically superior, machines, intelligently -- and intentionally -- operating in our atmosphere and in space, and that they are 'not ours'.
The well-reported Rendlesham Forest/Bentwaters event is an example where it might be postulated that several observers were probably exposed to UAP radiation for longer than normal UAP sighting periods. There may be other cases which remain unreported. It is clear that the recipients of these effects are not aware that their behaviour/perception of what they are observing is being modified
Mr. X (the contractor assigned to carrying out the study) single-handedly input basic data from various time periods covering approximately 25 years into a Microsoft Access computer database. One of these periods spanned 10 years from 1987 to 1997. This span, along with two clusters from 1988 and 1996, were then statistically analyzed, along with the subsequent writing of the substantial 465 page report, all in just over three years...........

"several observers were probably exposed to UAP radiation for longer than normal UAP sighting periods’ which caused ‘modified behaviour/perception’"
-- more than suggests that a great deal of what happened during those three nights was investigated to some extent at the time by government/military/security agencies in the UK, but that their discoveries were never disclosed to the public.
I think the higher military and government agencies were aware of events at Rendelsham [sic] from nearly the beginning as a result of the radar report sent to the base from the London radar tower indicating a large unidentified hovering over the base
By the time of the events at Capel Green on the third night, a group of observers (some in uniforms and some plain-clothed) numbering around 30 individuals according to Bustinza and Warren had assembled on the Green before they themselves got there. B and W also remember seeing some observers equipped with cameras of different sorts, a memory laid down before the pyrotechnics of the apparent landing and before the subsequent debriefings. It seems likely to me that these people would have been representatives of several security agencies (UK and also likely US) on the scene to record events. Otherwise, who were they and why were they there?
At the same time, they could not have learned much about the preceding two nights' events, could not have measured the effects of the craft that Penniston approached closely and even touched on the first night.
We know that mind-altering drugs were used on the witnesses in the 'debriefings' that followed, with the obvious intent of confusing their memories of what had happened and rendering their testimony confused and therefore unreliable.
It seems to me that Bentwaters-Rendelsham 1980 was indeed Britain's Roswell, and that the UK's security agencies had learned from the coverup of the Roswell events how to bury evidence of it and further devised a way to discredit the witnesses to it with a smokescreen of vague and unsupported suggestions that plasmas can radically distort the perceptions and minds of individuals coming into close proximity to them
I think Condign is essentially a coverup and that it was motivated by the continuing interest in the Rendelsham events.
