This story proves UFOs and some kind of E.T. or whatever it is forces exist.The governments will lie about it.
Well errrm back in October 1983 when I was delivering the newspapers and saw the headline "UFO Lands in Suffolk and that's official" in the News of the World. I would have agreed totally with you.
And before Springer gets in there again it is rare to still be a paperboy at 55 years of age yes!!!
I think all I can say now about the Rendlesham incident is that a number of people are still lying about it.

Rendlesham has always fascinated me. Here is a case with credible eyewitnesses, physical evidence (the trees that were broken off, right where they should have been), and what would seem to be a coverup by both the MOD and the Army. I for one think it was a probe. A small craft sent down from a mother ship to check out the air base. Wasn't there also some talk of the nukes going offline at the time this happened? I'm saying it's probably extraterrestrial.
If you look at the history of UFOs I feel there could be something significant to that mid 1970s - 1980s period that 'may' link a number of incidents to form a bigger picture. Here in the UK we 'enjoyed' (or maybe endured) a 'golden age' of UFO reports from the Berwyn crash in Wales, Rendlesham and a couple of odd cases in the mid 80s. After that there is very little to get excited about. Except, maybe, the Sheffield UFO just after the Phoenix Lights in 1997.

Whatever the radar picked up, it wasn’t a subject of interest for interceptor aircraft because it didn’t come from the east – this was the height of the Cold War. “It would have been sensible to quash any evidence. If something had happened, and it wasn’t picked up, it would have showed we weren’t capable of dealing with something from ‘above’. “Later, I read the MoD said the radar had been switched off at the time, which is a load of rubbish. “I’m no UFO nut, but something extraordinary happened here – outside the parameters of manned aircraft.”
I was going to post this in my own Rendlesham thread but seeing as you beat me to it....
What a very strange statement to make and it looks like Halt's adjusting his story to explain his own lack of action.
Why, despite all the drama of beams flashing down on his base, at his feet and strange craft in the sky did Halt do nothing but walk around a forest?
It is simply not true that the RAF would not react to intrusions in UK airspace from the West. As recent as this year Typhoon Jets were scrambled as the Russians flew two Blackjack Bombers down the West Coast of the British Isles in international airspace. At a time when tensions in Poland were rising ANY intrusion into UK airspace should have resulted in fighters being scrambled. If something was tracked on radar and no action was taken then a fair few people knew what was going on before the incident happened.

And yes Ian Ridpath is a 'skeptic'. You can read a column he wrote for New Scientist magazine in 1977 here :
Ian Ridpath, Flying Saucers Thirty Years on - New Scientist July 14th 1977
That was 40 years ago and it's really disappointing to have to say that a lot of what he said back still resonates today.
It's interesting how they would make the nuke go offline. Is this due to a AC magnetic field affecting power lines or due to a scanning system based on high energy physics such as X-Ray Backscatter:
Don't forget Shag Harbour and the Washington Flap....
The thing I come back to is this, could there be any other reason, other then fame, as to why these military people would fabricate a story like this and jeopardize their military careers?
Still of the opinion that Dr James E MacDonald and his findings he concluded to his UFO investigations way back in the 50/60s still resonates today .
Halt and his men experienced something out of the ordinary and reacted in the most natural way any human would to such stimuli , they were confused and bewildered and as such those out to discredit them seized on that natural bewilderment and confusion.
1. Early in the morning of 27 Dec 80 (approximately 0300L) two USAF security police patrolmen saw unusual lights outside the back gate....
The next day, three depressions 1.5 inches deep and 7 inches in diameter were found where the object had been sighted on the ground. The following night (29 Dec 80) the area was checked for radiation.
I think you have to ask if at least one or more of these military people are knowingly fabricating the story as a part of their military career. Or perhaps even more sinister they have been implanted with false memories. At least two witnesses claim they were drugged during de-briefings by 'special agents'.
