Often referred to as “Britain’s Roswell” events at a U.S. air base at the end of December 1980 stay one of the most enduring mysteries of the 20th century.
The strangeness started on the 26th of December when US soldiers stationed at RAF Woodbridge witnessed an unidentified object descending into the forest.
When they investigated, they found a glowing metallic object that appeared to move through the trees as they approached.
They found three triangular impressions in the ground at the same spot when they returned the following day.
The object appeared a second time on December 28th, urging deputy base commander Lt Col Charles Halt and a group of servants to investigate in the woods.
What they saw that night would go on to haunt them for the rest of their lives.
Now Michael Smith, who at the moment of the incident was part of RAF Bentwaters ‘ 81st Airborne Police Squadron, has come forward to disclose his own experience.
“A month before the base was put on alert I was called out and I got onto a bunker by one of the gates,” he said. “I was having a pee outside when I saw an orange glowing light in the woods.”
“It was a reddish ball. It stopped right in front of me – it just stayed there and hovered two feet off the ground and I called for reinforcements I was scared to death.”
Had this been the same object Halt and his people met a few weeks later?
