During the first hour, Charles Halt, former USAF base commander, shared his eyewitness account of the 1980 Rendlesham Forest sightings, and his personal investigation of the UFO landing site. During the morning of December 26th 1980, he learned that two officers had been chasing UFOs the night before in the woods. Two nights later, he heard from a lieutenant that the UFO was back in the forest, so he went out to the site. He saw indentation marks in the ground, and tested the area with a Geiger counter and found that it had higher than normal radiation levels. Then, they saw a glowing red object in a farmer's field that moved into the forest, avoiding the trees.
Later, the object silently exploded sort of like fireworks, and they saw multiple aerial objects moving nearby, Halt detailed. One of the objects sent down the equivalent of a laser beam that illuminated the ground; another of the objects moved above the weapons storage area of the Bentwaters base, he reported. Halt pointed out that the Rendlesham Forest area is known as a location for high strangeness, and he theorized that it could be a type of portal between dimensions or places.
Appearing during the latter 3 hours of the show, ufologist Robert Hastings discussed his research into the phenomenal Rendlesham case, as well as other incidents involving UFOs at nuclear bases. He interviewed two air traffic controllers on duty during the Rendlesham sightings who told him that they tracked a UFO on radar, and it was definitely not a conventional craft of any kind. "They picked up an object that covered 120 miles in some 8-12 seconds," and observed it making an instantaneous 90 degree turn, which no earthly aircraft can do," Hastings recounted. One of the air traffic controllers looked out the window of the control tower, and described seeing a spherical-shaped object, bright orange in color, that appeared to be hovering just above the Bentwaters water tower. "It instantaneously went from a hover to a rate of speed he'd never seen any aircraft perform," the controller told Hastings.
Hastings has documented many cases in which UFOs have appeared over nuclear weapon sites and sometimes tampered with or shutdown the nuclear capability. During a 1989 incident at the Kapustin Yar army missile base in the Soviet Union, a dome-shaped craft seen by multiple witnesses sent down laser-like beams into the weapons storage area. He also spoke about a September 2012 incident near the Malmstrom AFB in Montana in which two V-shaped objects were spotted flying low in the sky. Malmstrom is known for a 1967 episode in which a UFO was seen hovering, just as ICBMs malfunctioned.
