“The lights were red and blue, the red one above the blue one and they were flashing on and off. Because I never saw anything like that coming from the woods before, we decided to drive down and see what it was.”

April 16, 2010 Albuquerque, New Mexico - On April 10, 2010, at the Eureka Springs, Arkansas, UFO conference, I presented a 2-hour update of my continued investigation of the December 1980 to January 1981, unidentified aerial lights and craft phenomena at the then-joint U. S. and U. K. RAF Bentwaters and Woodbridge air base northeast of London in Suffolk County, England. I have broken that 2-hour presentation down into several parts that begin today in Part 1.
Brief RAF Bentwaters/Woodbridge Background
In 1942, the British Royal Air Force constructed an air base between Butley and Tunstall (larger pink circle near top of map) in Suffolk County, England, on the northeastern edge of Rendlesham Forest. It was called RAF Butley – about 4 miles northeast of RAF Woodbridge (large pink circle on far left). More trees were planted to build up the Rendlesham Forest in the 1940s to help shield military activities.
