The 1994 "Boscombe Down Incident"
Almost within walking distance of both Porton Down and Winterbourne Gunner, you'll find the UK's miniaturised answer to America's Edwards Air Force Base and Area 51 at Boscombe Down airbase.
It is where all the RAF's new toys are put through their paces and where US "black projects" are also tested and evaluated.
On September 26th 1994, the Boscombe Down airbase hit the headlines when a serious incident occurred on the main runway. So serious was this incident, that the UK's Special Forces - the SAS - were called in to deal with emergency security measures
Additionally, the CIA got involved in the "damage limitation" operation and aviation enthusiasts who flocked to the scene reported that Area 51 style "Janet" flights were seen arriving. These unmarked US Government-run Boeing 737s are used to ferry the workers into the US top secret "black project" base at Groom Lake.
