[Charles I. HALT is a retired United States Air Force colonel and the former base commander of RAF BENTWATERS [+ RAF WOODBRIDGE], near Rendlesham Forest, Woodbridge, Suffolk]
"My name is Charles I. Halt. I retired from the US Air Force in 1991 as a Colonel. I was a base commander at two LARGE installations and at the time of my retirement was Director, Inspections Directorate for the DOD IG. In that position I had inspection oversight of ALL MILITARY SERVICES & DEFENCE AGENCIES. In 1980 I was the Deputy Base Commander of RAF BENTWATERS, the large twin base complex in East Anglia England. At the time this was the LARGEST Tactical Fighter Wing in the AIR FORCE. In late December 1980 I was called upon to investigate a strange event that was distracting our Security Police from their primary duties. Early on the morning of December 26, 1980 our police patrolmen discovered strange lights in the forest east of the back gate of RAF WOODBRIDGE. Three patrolmen were dispatched into the forest to investigate. They reported discovering a strange triangular craft sitting on three legs. The craft was approximately 3 meters on a side. The craft had multiple lights. It rapidly maneuvered and quickly left the area. I was not immediately aware of the details only being told of strange lights and assumed there was a reasonable explanation. Two nights later the family Christmas party was interrupted by the on duty police commander. He told of strange events and claimed "it" was back. Since my boss had to present awards I was tasked to go out and investigate. I fully expected to find an explanation. I took two senior Security Police, a Disaster Preparedness expert and the reporting On Duty Police Commander. At the site we found the three 1 Â½" indentations in the ground in a triangular pattern.

We discovered mild radiation, and evidence including broken branches. We suddenly observed a bright red/orange oval object with a black center. It reminded me of an eye and appeared as though blinking. It maneuvered horizontally through the trees with occasionally vertical movement. When approached it receded and silently broke into five white lights which quickly vanished. We moved out of the forest into a pasture and observed several objects with multiple lights in the Northern sky. They changed in shape from elliptical to round.
Several other objects were seen to the South. One approached at high speed and sent down a concentrated beam near our feet. Another object sent down beams into the [NUCLEAR] WEAPONS STORAGE AREA. The whole time we had difficulty communicating with the base as all three radio frequencies kept breaking up. This activity continued for about an hour.
During this entire event I had my pocket recorder and taped the event as it unfolded. A copy of the tape was released without my knowledge. This is the original recorder and tape. I have no idea what we saw but do know whatever we saw was under intelligent control."
