UFO Encounter Of The Third Kind: The Rendlesham UFO Case
The Rendlesham Forest Incident is one of the most amazing incidents in UFO history. In December 1980, an unprecedented series of sightings and the actual landing of multiple craft of unknown origin occurred in Rendlesham Forest, Suffolk, England. The base was used by the U.S. Air during this period, therefore dozens of USAF personnel were eyewitnesses to these events as they occurred over a 2-3 day period. Landed craft were not only directly encountered by military personnel, but a hovering UFO was seen emitting a beam of light directly over a missile silo which reportedly disarmed it. Eyewitness and Deputy Base Commander, Colonel Charles Halt insists the event was covered up by both the U.K. and U.S. intelligence services. Later, evidence indicated that there was a substantial MoD file on the subject, which led to claims of a cover-up. Some interpreted this as part of a larger pattern of information suppression concerning the true nature of unidentified flying objects, by both the American and British governments.
