In the early hours of December 26th, 1980, a security patrol at the east gate of Royal Air Force Woodbridge spotted lights descending into a small pine forest bordering the base. Believing it was a downed civilian aircraft, a small team was assembled and sent to investigate and render assistance.
As the team approached the lights, their radios began to malfunction, the air became electrically charged, animals at the nearby farms went into a frenzy, and walking became difficult. “Like walking in deep water.”
Two of the men pressed on and arrived at a small clearing where the bright lights had seemed to stop moving. There was a massive silent explosion of bright white light. One of the two men was left in a trance-like state while the other approached a small, black, triangular shaped craft hovering above the forest floor. It appeared to be made of seamless opaque black glass and was covered in symbols that looked like hieroglyphs. As he ran his fingers over the surface of the strange symbols, the craft began to slowly ascend through the trees and took off into the sky at an “impossible” speed.
That was only the beginning.
Often referred to as Britain’s Roswell, the Rendlesham Forest Incident is one of the most well documented UFO cases in history. Join us as we explore the case in more detail and discuss some of the more wild tales that have emerged since 1980 including a possible government cover-up, a binary code from the future, and a possible close encounter of the third kind.
