Former members of the US air force have reported seeing strange metallic objects hovering in the forest near RAF Woodbridge, Suffolk, United Kingdom, the Irish Times reports.

Long-time UFO researcher Robert Hastings gave a press conference in Washington, yesterday, and urged to “address the vital issue of UFO incursions at US nuclear weapons sites over the past six decades.”

Hastings claimed to have gathered witness testimony from more than 120 former or retired US Air Force personnel showing infiltration of nuclear sites. Six retired officers and one former NCO spoke of their personal experiences.  “Once trusted to operate or guard weapons of mass destruction they have come forward and revealed ongoing UFO surveillance of, and occasional interference with, our nuclear weapons.”

“This information alters the historical perspective on the nuclear arms race and much, much more,” Hastings said. “The fact that the Pentagon and CIA have successfully kept the truth from public view for so long is in itself mind-boggling.”

Mr Hastings believes that during the Cold War aliens had been seeking to send “a sign to Washington and Moscow that we are playing with fire”.

Captain Robert Salas, a former US Air Force Inter-continental Ballistic Missile Launch officer, said he was on duty during one missile disruption incident at Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana in 1967 when a “large glowing, pulsating red oval shaped object” hovered over the front gate.

He then noticed that the Minuteman missiles he was overseeing had shut down. “The indicators for all or nearly all 10 missiles showed as red-coloured ’fault’ lights, which meant that the missiles were disabled and could not be launched.”

Salas said he was ordered not to discuss the matter but was never given an explanation by his superior officers.

 

In Britain, Colonel Charles Halt said that in the early hours of December 27th, 1980 he watched a UFO directing beams of light down into the RAF Bentwaters airbase near Ipswich. The Rendlesham Forest incident, often described as “Britain’s Roswell” was used as one example of evidence aliens had visited nuclear weapons sites. The incident was never fully explained.
