THE internationally-famous Rendlesham “UFO incident” story was a cover-up to save the blushes of blundering US helicopter pilots, a special investigation claimed last night.
BBC Radio Suffolk broadcast a live programme to investigate the enduring mystery of the UFO “crash” in the Suffolk forest nearly 30 years ago – a story which has gripped enthusiasts across the world.
“The Woodbridge airbase was home to the Apollo recovery team which would be called out if the rocket landed anywhere other than the Pacific,” he explained.
“For whatever reason, it seems the helicopter crew went up on Christmas night and took the capsule out for a trip, suspended below it on chains.
“The helicopter was flying low and it smashed into the runway lights, causing it to drop the capsule into the forest. They then came back the next day to recover the capsule. It was then taken to an air force base in America and, apparently, its dimensions match up with those in the forest supposedly caused by the ‘alien spacecraft’.

So Ridpath has to be completely wrong, the Lighthouse theory is completely wrong and the helicopter made absolutely no noise. Dear dear... I honestly cannot see how anyone can even give 10 seconds of their time and consideration for this explanation, it doesn't just stretch credibility wafter thin, it tears it asunder. There is n't a shred of evidence to support the helicopter theory as anyone who is interested has heard the Halt tape and there isn't a hint of a helicopter motor and blades.....edit on 18-12-2010 by FireMoon because: (no reason given)

I think that fact that there is more of a chance that is was an Apollo craft dropped than UFO/Aliens landing should be enough.

So now we're supposed to believe that military officers somehow failed to recognize an iconic Apollo capsule?
That's like saying one failed to recognize the Statue of Liberty... :@@
