At a speaking engagement at Woodbridge Community Centre in Suffolk, England, Colonel Charles Halt, former deputy commander at Bentwaters AFB, confirmed that he had seen the objects that were reported by numerous other base personnel during the Rendlesham Forest incident in December 1980.
Halt, who retired from the USAF in 1991, has also gathered written statements from the base’s radar operators, of whom also confirm that they had tracked fast-moving objects on their equipment that night, but had declined to report it at the time, due to discouragement from their superiors regarding the reporting of UFOs.
"I have confirmation that (Bentwaters radar operators)… saw the object go across their 60 mile (96km) scope in two or three seconds, thousands of miles an hour, he came back across their scope again, stopped near the water tower… they watched it and observed it go into the forest where we were," said Col Halt.
"Whatever was there was clearly under intelligent control."
Halt says that the UFO appearing on radar provides evidence that the alternative explanation put forward by the government, that the sighting was caused by the nearby Orfordness lighthouse, is not correct.
The British Ministry of Defense has already released the "Condign Report" which confirms that "plasmas unknown to science" were observed by military personnel during the Rendlesham Forest incident, and has stated that 18 policy documents that were claimed to have been lost, in fact, exist and will be released in March of 2016. If these documents are not altered or redacted, they will confirm the impression of the personnel present that the unidentified objects or plasmas appeared to be under intelligent control, and will discuss policy in regard to this.
