The Rendlesham Forest incident not only involves one sighting, but a series or sightings of mysterious, unknown lights and the apparent landing of a spaceship or multiple craft in late December 1980 in Rendlesham Forest, Suffolk, England. US Air Force was stationed at RAF Woodbridge at the time, just outside the scene of the UFO sightings.
USA personnel saw various UFO events in their own eyes for the span of two or three days. Now the Rendlesham Forest incident is still one of the best known UFO sightings in any parts of the world. It has been regarded as Britain’s version of the Roswell UFO incident in the US, the reason it is also referred to as Britain’s Roswell.
In a statement released by the Ministry of Defence, the series of sightings did not bring a threat to national security and it was never been investigated as a security matter. However, evidence later surfaced indicating comprehensive investigation done by MoD as supported by substantial file on the subject. Claims of cover-up have risen tremendously after the public knew about the MoD file. Many interpreted the evidence as part of a larger conspiracy to hide the truth about the very true nature of UFOs by both British and United States governments.
