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.
We are happy to announce that Monroe Nevels will be a contributor on our up-and-coming definitive book on the Rendlesham Forest Incident.
Yes that was two A10s colliding on the 18th November. The pilots ejected, one was dragged out to sea by his parachute, the RAF rescue Helicopter attended but the rope from the chute wrapped around the winch and dragged the rescuer off. They both drowned. The second Pilot landed in the forest.

Mirage and Sacha, does this relate to Butlers question to Halt:
"What fell off an aircraft that had to be covered up?"
........ the curious decision to go into the woods · very late at night to carry out trace analysis and photography that would have been much easier in daylight, strongly imply to us that the tape recording was a deliberate set-up by the US Air Force to persuade some men to see the lighthouse and interpret it falsely............

My final update is that I listened to the latest phenomenon radio interview, with Dugdale and Butler. This was a long awaited piece and in many ways seemed to be the fuse that lit the public spat with Penniston. Strangely, it had more to do proving Warren sold one tall tale to the newspapers, then gave us another one. Nothing on Penniston... Nothing ground breaking, more a very well researched final nail in the coffin.
With all that said, I'll throw this out there again: where did warren get the photo of the phenomenon and the underground?
Also of interest is this month's Fortean article by Miss Randles. She cautions against 'a stamp collector' mentality and then references that Isaac Koi is working on a huge project. Almost feels contradictory.

Isaac has been working with Ian Ridpath collating everything available on the subject.
I was the idiot who sent him Andrew Pikes book. Fuming about what happened over that.
I know from your posts on the old forum at Rendlesham-Incident.co.uk in a thread entitled “Bustinza phone interview,20 april 1984” and another thread entitled “May 2010 Transcript of Col Halt tape “ that you sold your book at a loss at best (and gave some copies away, including to Sacha Christie) due to the costs of self-publishing and the cost of your research. You also said that “to avoid any further smear of being a money maker on the back of this subject, I am going to withdraw rights from the publisher in an email this morning. It's dead and gone! And so am I, that's it!” - so I will not ask if you have any plans to have the second edition printed and sold commercially.
However, if you want, assuming you are the copyright holder, it would be relatively simple to make your book available as a PDF via a free file storage website.
In this way, you could make your work available to those interested without anyone having any grounds whatsoever for suggesting you are seeking to profit from your work (not that I personally see anything wrong with seeking to recover the costs you incurred or even make a profit on them).
Provided you give your permission for your book to be made for free in this way, I'm sure I can sort things out for you so you would not have to lift a finger. I recently did something similar in relation to another UFO book (Willy Smith's "On pilots and UFOs") which his widow decided she would like to make available free of charge to the UFO community
- as I discussed at the thread below:
Given the time and effort you must have put into your book, it would be a shame if it continued to be unavailable to those interested in reading it.
Basically, Andrew Pike indicated that he was stopping any commercial publication of his book “to avoid any further smear of being a money maker on the back of this subject" so I wrote the relevant email offering AS A FAVOUR TO HIM AND THE UFO COMMUNITY to scan and upload his book to a free file storage website IF HE GAVE HIS PERMISSION.
He was the one talking about having published his book at a loss and I was offering a potential solution.
If he doesn't want his book made available for free online without him incurring any costs, that is - of course - up to him. I'll simply move on to other projects where various UFO researchers want my help in helping make their material more easily available without making any profit.
Why would anyone want to talk when all that ever happens is people get their teeth kicked in for doing so. Too many sales pitches to protect not enough open minds when it comes to the noise makers.
