“It was like Jim went into a trance and he started acting like he was re-living it from thirty years before. He acted like he was walking around it (black, glassy, triangular craft in forest).”
- USAF Airman 1st Class John Burroughs, December 26, 1980,
Rendlesham Forest near RAF Bentwaters/Woodbridge, England
“On a repeat of coming back touching these symbols, I get a bright light
and I can't see. ...I just see these symbols (zeros and ones)...they are coming at me fast!”
- USAF S/Sgt. James Penniston, December 26, 1980, Rendlesham Forest near RAF Bentwaters/Woodbridge, England
January 28, 2011 Albuquerque, New Mexico - Thirty years ago on December 26, 1980, around 3 AM, USAF Airman 1st Class John Burroughs, USAF Staff Sergeant James Penniston and USAF Airman Ed Cabansag were in Rendlesham Forest under orders to investigate highly strange and colorful aerial lights. According to signed and dated statements at the time, John Burroughs and Jim Penniston came close to the lights and a “craft of unknown origin” on the forest floor. Jim Penniston described approaching a 9-foot-long by 6-foot-high triangular object and touching its black, glassy surface. As his fingers went over raised symbols “like Braille” in a 3.5 foot long section toward the pointed end of the craft, S/Sgt. Penniston's mind was telepathically flooded with binary code and some information about the intelligence behind the craft and lights.
