But very few people have ever paid attention to it. Perhaps because it is over 200 pages in size and difficult to plough through? Definitely worth a 2nd look IMHO.
I think we can say something unusual happened and that perhaps Penniston's now expanded story is a complete red herring. Warren's was a compilation of genuine events, hearsay and fabrication down the years. Halt has been deceptive since his memo and perhaps continues to be so to this day. Which leave John's story. He has mainly been consistent down the years with his story. Were his injuries sustained during the incident? If so then that leads us to what?
This is my blog about my thoughts on the events. sacha-christie-infomaniachousewife.blogspot.co.uk...

The next part of the programme was to test psychological deterrent perimeter fencing. This was by means of a leaky coaxial cable running at the edge of the perimeter to be tested. This device emits electro magnetic energy which anyone who's studied paranormal experiences properly knows can be the cause of paranormal experience.

Just came across the part where Mal Scurrah describes the earlier radar event when a Phantom night fighter got scrambled.
He definitely says Oct/Nov 1980.
I'd suggested earlier on that he might've been relating the story from 1956 when two Venom fighters chased a blip.
That can be discounted (if it hadn't been already) for obvious reasons.
There must be another one that wasn't made public but it does make me wonder how often they get these things down there. Pretty busy airspace, and that's just the ones we get told about...............
On 25 November 1980 at 6.40am, the log of a Chevron Oil Rig off the east coast of Scotland described a sighting of a “glowing orange ball” that ﬂoated over one of the drilling platforms. The offshore manager, an ex-Royal Navy commander, discovered it was also visible from another rig 15 miles (24km) away. An RAF Nimrod was put on standby to investigate, but the glow disappeared after hovering for ﬁve minutes. The following weekend, police ofﬁcer Alan Godfrey in Todmorden, West Yorkshire started his shift that ended with a UFO leaving physical traces and alleged ‘alien abduction’.....
Many other sightings occurred across the eastern UK in those weeks, but one of the most pertinent involved military radar. Ofﬁcer Mal Scurrah based at RAF Neatishead in East Anglia was tracking Phantom jets on exercise. Another radar operator picked up a blip with no identiﬁcation code hovering off the Anglian coast and thought it might be an unscheduled helicopter from one of the rigs. Checks with ‘Eastern Radar’ at RAF Watton revealed it was not, and two of the Phantoms were sent to investigate. Scurrah then detected an ‘angel’ on his scope and relayed ongoing movements as it rocketed in minutes from a standing start at 5,000ft (1,500m), just as one Phantom closed in, and was seen by the pilot as a brilliant glow. The UFO rapidly disappeared southward towards Rendlesham and upwards off screen at over 100,000ft (30,500m), far beyond the capabilities of RAF aircraft or further radar coverage.
Other local radar data was quickly accessed by the MoD and Scurrah says that the logs revealed how several military systems tracked other UFOs during this period. Such events indicate an often overlooked build-up of unusual UFO activity on the eastern side of the UK leading up to the Rendlesham story.

They should have called that episode 'Strange But so misleading it may as well be called false', instead of 'Strange But True'!

For those not clear on what Tulpa is referring to it is ITVs (now near 20 year old) show on Rendlesham 'Strange But True' . The start of the programme gives the impression that radar operator Mal Scurrah witnessed something strange just prior to the Rendlesham incident occurring on Dec 25th 1980. This incident did happen but actually occurred around a month or two earlier.
