#3 The Rendlesham Forest Incident
The following from: http://www.therendleshamforestincident.com/
“I’ve gone on record saying Rendlesham might be the turning point in history that leads to the explanation of the UFO phenomenon”
-Nick Pope, Directorate of Defence Security, Ministry of Defence
“The Rendlesham Forest Incident, also known as ‘Britain’s Roswell’, is undoubtedly one of the best documented and most significant military encounters with a Craft of Unknown Origin or UFO. It is also a case that involved very credible witnesses, trained (USAF) United States Air Force observers and security police.
The incident spanned three days in 1980. Rendlesham Forest is a large pine forest, east of Ipswich, in Suffolk, England. Nearby are the twin NATO air bases, RAF Bentwaters and RAF Woodbridge; at the time both bases were being leased to the United States Air Force. Several UFO incidents, including multiple-witness sightings by military personnel, ground traces, and radioactive anomalies were reported from Rendlesham forest.
According to USAF security patrolmen on duty, “the object was described as being metallic in appearance and triangular in shape, approx. 2-3 meters across the base… it illuminated the entire forest with a white light and had a pulsing red light on top and a bank(s) of blue lights underneath.” In November, 2002, the British Ministry of Defense released the “Rendlesham File” of documents related to and confirming the Rendlesham Forest incident.”
My personal comments: What makes this event a smoking gun of the unexplained are the numerous independent credible witnesses. In one case the “craft” was examined up close by two individuals and touched by one. Attempts to debunk (the lighthouse, etc.) are laughable explanations that do not match the evidence. While it is always possible that the craft was a very advanced and highly classified propulsion system nothing resembling it has materialized almost forty years later. If it was part of a classified project why would it be “tested” in a such a highly visible location. It just makes no sense.
There are many thousand of unexplained UFO incidents. Many with hundreds of witnesses and others with “close” contact. The Rendlesham Forest incident stands out among these and is deserving of our recognition.
