It seems Bentwaters has history with UFO incidents.

The objects were travelling at quite impossible speeds like 4-5000 mph
and then came to an abrupt halt near to one of these stations not very
high up. Jet aircraft picked them up on aircraft radar. The objects then
simply made rings round them …. Over the years – although there were not an enormous number of such cases – there were a sufficient number to persuade me, and a number of air staff friends with whom I had to work, that something was going on, sporadically, in British airspace which we could not explain. But we did not particularly want to make public statements about that. Not for something that we had no explanation.

August 13-14 1956, 2 joint RAF/USAF bases were embroiled in a UFO incident, which involved multiple radrar locks and scrambled jets.

Hey Doogle,

How you doing?

I went to Lakenheath back in December of 77 to pick up my pay check. I was stationed at Torrejon AB Spain with the USAF but I was on vacation in England and had my pay check forwarded to Lakenheath. Great country, great people wish I had been stationed there instead.

Well time for a Pepsi throw back.
