It was suggested that what the airmen saw flashing in the forest was the Orford Ness lighthouse , a suggestion I resisted for years but if you put the Halt tape together with the 5 second period between lighthouse flashes they do match up to the tape.
Rendlesham. High speed high altitude unmanned variant that was struck by incoming meteor debris. The outer sheath was shredded, it called a distress emergency and was following guided orders to ditch at the nearest nuclear capable base.
The lights in the skies, the beams, all ours. The beams were and still are communications (laser comms) the repeated over flights were due to needing every scrap of the shell. Nothing could be left to be found. The weird 'glyphs' reported across the side are not glyphs, they are liquid magnets that activate in a slow release manner letting the handling crew know when the system is safe to be stripped and the core lifted out. They form weird shapes because the outer shell flows and flexes like bird feathers
The lights are actually the lift / propulsion, and those men are very lucky to be alive. She went to a nuke base because they have the access and manpower to cope with such an emergency (The airmen were supposed to form a perimeter and stay there, not go touching her) even when on soil that wasn't strictly theirs to be on.
There was also the small matter of the base not actually being a nuke base. Her sensors told her weapons were there, but not enough crews knew that.
