RAF Bentwaters when it was a United States Air Force base

There has been widespread and continuing belief that the mysterious lights and flying saucer seen in a remote forest next to a US Air Force base on Boxing Day 1980 were alien ships. But now as the 30th anniversary of the bizarre incident approaches, locals have suggested the real explanation lies with an American helicopter crew who bungled the transfer of an Apollo space capsule and tried to cover it up with the UFO claim.

They believe the "alien spacecraft" was actually the crew pod from a space rocket which was accidentally dropped in Rendlesham Forest, Woodbridge, Suffolk by the helicopter from the nearby Bentwaters air base.

Witnesses reported seeing bright fast moving lights in the sky leading to speculation that it was a UFO. Several badly-shaken American airmen gave detailed descriptions of the craft after it landed and security teams, guarding NATO nuclear weapons on the base, raced to investigate.

Even the base commander Lt Col Charles Halt was called in but the incident was allegedly hushed up and the MoD still refuses to believe it was a UFO. Other explanations include the beam from a nearby lighthouse at Orford, a meteor shower or a Russian rocket breaking up on re-entry.

Well, who's right? Do you still believe it was a UFO incident (meaning of alien nature-not of this world) or was it a cover up for a bad mistake for the Apollo hauling teams?

I have to say that I have now changed my stance and now leaning to the If was a Military screw up. Anyone who has been in the military knows what I am saying.

Anyone with some detail/inside info that can confirm that there was a US team there specifically to recover Apollo mission craft etc?

And, lastly, for even the UFO hunters to say that it was a military blunder... that says a lot.

If it was a screw up, some people have been having one hell of a laugh everytime this story comes up.

Sorry about that Sir. Just so you know, I did a search but it appears the search feature is not working right now. My bad for the double posting.

There was a thread in November that discussed the (then) upcoming radio broadcast.

I correctly predicted what the 'new' theory was going to be (smug mode
)

Of course it's not well known that the Apollo capsule actually the had the ability to split into five separate objects and fly off at high speed
