Did you ever hear about what happened at RAF Bentwaters / Woodbridge, while I was assigned to the 81st TFW I had a little Machine Shop on the back of the base near the Rendlesham forest side of RAF Woodbridge during the early eighties.
I lived there for 2 years and I'll tell you one thing, If you ever been to that area you would know the fog is thicker than pea soup and as still and quite as a tomb. Sometimes on those nights there would be this weird green glow that would move up and down in the middle of the forest. You can make out what appeared to be reflection of eyes moving about the ferns in the forest. People said they were dogs but they must have had long legs for dogs.
That area has an ancient history with druid swamps and haunted towns. Some of them were marked with really old signs with black dogs painted on them. I ask one of the locals what that meant and he said it meant the area was haunted and the black dogs represent evil.
I was actually their but I arrived soon after the so called incident. It was very strange because as soon as I stepped on base I was rushed over to some big chief who ordered me to volunteer for a special duty assignment. It was away from the main base at Bentwaters a few miles to the south at Woodbridge separated by old forest and farmland. We had squadrons of A-10’s and a rescue wing that flew Jolly Greens and C-130’s.
RAF Woodbridge was an old WWII bomber crash base. Allied bombers returning from their runs over Germany would come back all shot up and rather than risk ruining a good air strip they would crash land at Woodbridge. It was close to the North Sea and had a wide dirt runway that could be fixed easily. You could still find old wreckage sticking out of the ground.
I ask the Chief what happened to the old machinist and he made up some story. I thought it was strange by the way they rushed me in to the position and when I saw the shop I was shocked, it was like a ghost shop, no one had worked their in years and the dust and cob webs covered everything. Everyone told me a different story about why the old machinist had left.
Soon I started rebuilding the shop I acquired all new machinery and tools working 12 hour days and 6 -7 days a week. It was like I was possessed. The only thing I could think about was fixing that shop. I never worked so hard in my life. After about 10 months it started looking like a real machine shop. But the strange thing it was that it was located at the edge of the base right next to this big old forest. The base military cops were always rushing out into that forest to check things out. I thought it was protesters trying to disrupt things on the base and when I asked, everyone would keep really quite and say things like didn't you hear what happened? But they would not elaborate and became evasive.
When we had exercises we would work through the night and that's when I noticed the lights.
One day while cleaning out my shop I noticed this rather large spider. One of the vehicle mechanics a local man who lived in the area was there and as I went to do away with the spider he stopped me and said don’t kill it, that’s a homing spider. I said what’s a homing spider? He bent down, and carefully picked up the spider, cupping it in his two hands. I said aren’t you afraid it will bite you? He said by all means of course not, these spiders are friendly. He said come on now, follow me. We walked out the back door of the shop across the tree cover lawn to the edge of the forest. He bent down and released the spider. No sooner than that, the 2-1/2 inch diameter spider started to move straight back towards the shop. I could not believe my eyes. He said the homing spiders always know the way home and will not stop until they get there. Continued in part (2)

I'll be waiting to check out part two before I make any kind of definitive judgment. However, in my experience, if someone is telling the truth about something they generally don't make a point to say that it is true. I know that when I'm messing with someone I preface it by saying "True Story." Just keep that in mind OP. Peace Out.

To the OP: Couldn't you have just replied to your own thread when you ran out of space for text as opposed to starting three?

'Nother thing. You spread your post out over three threads. Shoulda just posted in the same thread. Maybe a MOD can sort it out.

I guess I should have but since, this was my first posting, I wasn't quite sure about it, and besides I'm old and my brain isn't what it use to be.
Sorry about that.

Why do you not let the man finish , or post in the third thread?
patience is a Kingly virtue. Think things through before you cut into it.

You haven't heard of Rendelsham and Bentwaters, you need more help than I can offer. Anyone who waits 25 years to talk about Rendelsham has my complete attention.

Kiss Google a few times while you search.

He "did" finish it, in three separate posts. As you would know had you "bothered" to read the thread. Thank you! DRIVE THROUGH!

Indeed, like a movie where some random guy on ATS decides to piggyback a story of his own devising onto an established UFO case, to wit, the Rendlesham Forest Incident. Friendly space spider indeed. But I'll do what a wise man taught me years ago. Acknowledge....Move on....

Nice to know we reached the same point here. The finale needs work. It lacks any impact. Something is missing when we find this superior race stole a spider.

I am hoping there is more.
Or that you have more thoughts to share on the matter.

They were posted for a short time, seems a mod deleted them instead of merging them.. Perhaps the OP can repost them here in this thread?

Wow! That's very interesting.

Personally, I think what you've written sounds like highly polished fiction, but so what!

Keep posting!
