the notion of " pranking " an entire base for the actions of a few is so idiotic - only the daily fail would fall for it
In August the SAS mounted a covert night exercise to penetrate the Bentwaters SSA. Troopers parachuted into the forest from a C130 that had ‘strayed’ into the area from a training zone. But the plan was rumbled when their black parachutes were detected by the new base surveillance equipment.
During the autumn nights were spent reconnoitring the perimeter of the twin base complex where it met the Forestry Commission plantation known as Tangham Forest (Rendlesham).
As December approached lights and coloured flares were rigged in the forest. Black helium balloons coupled to remote-controlled kites carried suspended materials into the sky, activated by radio-controls.
Airman First Class John Burroughs was involved in an incident in Rendlesham Forest in December 1980 which has become known as "Britain's Roswell". He was exposed to huge doses of radiation whilst investigating a mysterious craft and claimed this left him in need of "lifesaving" heart surgery.
After decades of being "stonewalled", he has finally persuaded the US Veteran's Association (VA) to pay for his treatment.

It’s been my experience that protecting nuclear arsenals means shoot first, ask questions later. It’s widely know you don’t play pranks on guards guarding nukes. Everything to them is life and death, with no question they are allowed to used deadly force.
The opening post is made believable by the fairytale that is Hollywood. Not people understand the reality of guarding nuclear weapons.
