30 years on from the famous UFO incident at Rendlesham Forest the event still remains a mystery.

It still isn't clear what exactly turned up in the woods near Woodbridge airbase in 1980, theories continue to range from extraterrestrial visitation to a top secret military experiment to the lights from a nearby lighthouse.

"Thirty years after claims that UFOs had been spotted in Rendlesham Forest, experts and enthusiasts still can't agree on what happened."

Which Ridpath says could have well been an astronomical event. If you had watched the first ten minutes of the video Boon posted you would know that, and why he says that ie what evidence he has to back that up. Whether it was or not is beside the point. You fail, again and again, to address the arguments that are put forward.

That road is heading South-East towards the forest, look on the maps if you don't belive me.

Oh yes it does, and even the local folks have confirmed the accounts of the military.

On the map skyeagle posted, the road is the dotted line running from East Gate to the yellow road. The pic you posted looks accurate to me, it even shows a part of the track leading off to the right, which is the track you use to get to East Gate when being directed from the car park. The only difference I can see from your pic, and what I remember from being there, is the height of the bushes/trees down the side of that road...that's it though.

I originally put this in the Roswell thread, for reasons that needn't bother us here. I may as well put it here, since it's just some musings that I've been thinking about. An interesting aside is that what Woodbridge was built for, during the war, was as an emergency landing ground for aircraft coming back over the Channel. (If it is the Channel there; maybe the North Sea). Anyway, also considering that the Aerospace Rescue lot were based there as well, weren't they. Wild imaginings time: what if the govt (that's the US govt, of course) had an arrangement with the ETs that... [More]

^^ Further to that, it may even have been a prearranged landing; perhaps not a manned (or aliened) spacecraft, but a probe or drone, to which the USAF was party. So why did it land in the woods? Well, Woodbridge isn't like Area 51; there are people living nearby, you can walk right outside the fence and see what's going on, even at night there'd have been people in the vicinity who could see if something curious landed inside the base, so what if the landing outside the base was deliberate? A rendezvous in a given spot in the woods was prearranged, with those who needed to know in ... [More]

There is an account sourced by one of the original UK investigators, that now rarely gets any airing, and given that it wasn't included in any of the books on the case by the investigators, the account undoubtedly lacks credence. However, allegedly a planned soft-landing of a probe/capsule went slightly off course, and the capsule landed in the forest around 1.3km E of the Woodbridge threshold, this was just S off track 8 and close to the edge of the forest and the field at Capel Green; this was supposedly verified by the local gamekeeper who saw a fire crew damping down a "finned c...

On the Halt question, never really looked into the man, but I did hear or read someone saying he was in charge of a section, and certainly not in a position of authority to be kept in the loop with much else then his particular section.....don't know if that's true, and I don't know how the US ranking system works anyway.....just thought I'd throw that in.....
