It was getting a bit too late last night to add my own comments on the Steve La Plume part of the story and Rendlesham in general. Having finally
found the details, verified them, edited them down to something more concise and digestible and posted them it was gone midnight here in the UK.
La Plume did appear back in 2010 on the Return to Rendlesham radio show behindtheparanormal.com...
. It is fairly unique in that
major witnesses Halt, Penniston, Burroughs, Warren and his co-author Peter Robbins all appear along with researchers Nick Pope, Bill Birnes, Stanton
Friedman, Linda Moulton Howe and Gary Heseltine across a number of shows . For anyone who wants to research this case further all podcasts are
available free of charge.
So, La Plume's tale of his days at the twin bases seems to be one of a fearful paranoid young man. The question is, was it down to his own fragile
mental state, independent of the people and environment at Bentwaters/Woodbridge or were they a catalyst to trigger this state of mind?
Larry Warren has hinted at a large number of recruits being "placed" at the base for a reason, and that perhaps some exotic experiment was going on
with them all. It seems unlikely in my opinion. Surely Halt would not have sent his infamous memo if this was all a test. Perhaps the reason was that
these young men were there was that they were not up there with the best recruits of the US Air Force. Maybe Bentwaters was seen as the destination
for those who didn't quite fit in? If La Plume's story is true then it supports the stories of many strange goings in the area of East Anglia beyond
3 days over Christmas 1980. If not then what should we make of it? He does appear to have faded out of the limelight again. Was his story true or
There are no real answers to Rendlesham. Something strange may have really happened there but all we seem to get is more questions?
Why did Penniston see a triangular craft, glyph like markings, made notes for 45 mins, took photos than came out all blurred and even received a
machine to brain binary download from the said craft whilst John Burroughs standing within a few yards of him remembers none of this?
Why does Halt insist he saw craft that were under "intelligent control" beaming lights onto the base but there was no major red alert and he took a
couple of weeks to send his low key memo onto the RAF.?
Why does Warren insists he saw aliens and an underground facility when there is little evidence to back him up on that one?
Maybe some, if not all of the witnesses, have been "meddled with" by sinister forces hiding some real truth? Or maybe there is a more logical
explanation to why their stories are so fragmented?
I can honestly say that it seems impossible who to believe now.
John Burroughs seems to be the most level headed of the witnesses who has changed his story very little since 1980. He has been critical of Halt,
Penniston and Warren but seems to have developed an uneasy truce with Penniston in recent years. Perhaps for fear of being sidelined. Burroughs has
claimed Halt tried to keep him out of documentaries over the years and that Halt knows a lot more than he is telling. A Machiavellian game is still
being played out by these guys after all these years and only Warren will admit to this day that nuclear warheads were stored at the base.
I have known about this case since the 1980s as a kid ,when it first broke, watched the "Strange But True" and "Unsolved Mysteries" TV shows in
the 1990s and read books "You Can't Tell the People" and "Left at East Gate". Since the turn of the century I have accumulated a number of
documents and podcasts, and TV/radio shows on the subject.
If people aren't bored with Rendlesham and this thread doesn't fade away then I'll look over them again and see if there is anything else of
