The Rendlesham Forest incident is probably the most famous UFO encounter to ever take place in Britain. Now an alleged witness has claimed that he was also in the forest on the same night, took pictures of the UFO and has been sitting on them for 40 years and has now decided to share them.  The following article is taken from The Sun

THESE spooky black and white photos allegedly show the UFO at the centre of Britain’s biggest ever case for the first time.

They were supposedly taken in Rendlesham Forest in Suffolk by a poacher who claims he saw the same UFO being hunted by a military team from a nearby US airbase.

The alleged witness claims he was 200ft away from Colonel Charles Halt, deputy base commander of RAF Bentwaters, and his men, when he spotted the glowing orb – in an unsolved case often dubbed the British Roswell after the infamous US UFO crash.

He said: “When I was younger, I was a poacher. I lived very close to Rendlesham Forest and frequently went poaching there. So back in 1980, 28 December, I was in the forest poaching.

“Now bear this in mind, before this encounter I saw and heard a lot of strange things in that forest. I could tell you stories that would bend your bones, so every time I went poaching, I always took my camera always hoping to capture some evidence.”

The case involved military witnesses from the twin NATO bases RAF Woodbridge and RAF Bentwaters in Suffolk who saw strange lights in late December 1980.

Two airmen, Staff Sgt Jim Penniston and Airman John Burroughs, claim they got so close to a triangular craft they actually touched it.

Colonel Halt then led a military team into the forest to investigate the sightings.

They also saw strange lights and a red orb with a black centre “winking” back at them and claimed a UFO fired a beam of light near their feet.

Halt later wrote a memo to the MOD describing the freakish incident but it was filed away by defence chiefs.
