This all sounds very fishy doesn't it?

...why is his book so hard to get hold of?

That might have been the entire test..
and the reason that events went on for 3 or 4 nights.
Halt said one of the things they came in to check was the codes in hot row... That was what he stated and I can say no more on that. There was also statements made about a special team that came in on it with equipment.
They parked the C-5 back in an area where it was impossible to see what they were doing and they took care of their own security. I can also say there was a lot of Helicopters flying around the forest and vehicles going into the woods.
The Russian part has been talked about for years in many different ways. One of the theories was we brought down a Russian Sat and we came in to recover it.
It also was stated they could have tried something on us. I do not feel it had anything to do with inside the Base but an outside source!
There seems to be substantive info - and not just from Chris Armold - pointing to Halt and a team first plodding through the forest for hours on end on the SECOND night (26th - 27th) but seeing nothing. Presumably Penniston's 'landing site' was the focus. Was Tamplin's emotional 'breakdown' the event that inspired the trek, or an incidental detail?
If so, what was the sight investigated on the THIRD night? Presumably the one witnessed by personnel earlier that evening who saw multi-coloured lights over a yellow mist. Was Bustinza part of that early party, and did that inform his later interviews as well as his later trek with Halt? Why were there personnel wandering through UK territory anyway whilst the Xmas party was swinging? Who gave permission? Was there a routine drill going on?
By the morning of [27 December 1980] I contacted Maj Zickler for information of the alleged sighting. His information was all second hand and sketchy. Those with first hand accounts were citing career concerns as justification for remaining silent.
“Frankly at this point, Lt Col Halt and I were discussing what level of involvement was required from my office. We knew that silence would likely lead to allegation of cover up. With the rumor mill already operating it was a matter of time before the press got the story. We did not want the press to report the appearance of misinformation or cover up. We decided that a brief in-house investigation was in order. If we could find any credible evidence to justify a request for more high-tech investigators, then we would be in a position to pass the entire episode on to the British authorities
Why did Halt once say that the 'main event' occurred after lights started beaming down in the field? Was the half-hour break in the tape after 3.30am the timing of such an event? Does this explain Bustinza's 'machine' the size of a house? (who had no reason to lie in separate interviews). Why did Halt later tell Burroughs (when lights were still beaming down, after 4am) that there had been a "landing" in the field?
Why was there activity in the forest for the next two days surrounding the arrival of a major aircraft, according to Burroughs?
