Col. Charles Halt - Rendlesham Revisited -
Retired Colonel Charles Halt was the deputy base commander and the senior officer involved with the famous Rendlesham Forest/Bentwaters Air Force Base UFO encounter in December 1980. While the deputy base commander at the Bentwaters Royal Air Force base in England, he took a crew out into the Rendlesham Forest to investigate mysterious lights that were seen in the Forest. He was skeptical of the claims of other security personnel who said they had witnessed the lights the night before. After his experience this night, he was skeptical no longer. He will share his view and new discoveries regarding the amazing events that took place. Halt later became base commander at Bentwaters and is the highest ranking U.S. military officer to speak on his personal UFO experiences while in service.
Col. Charles Halt is a retired U.S. Air Force colonel and the former base commander of RAF Bentwaters. After retiring from the U.S. Air Force in 1991, Halt made his first public appearance in a television documentary, where he confirmed the authenticity of the Rendlesham Forest Incident. In 1997 he was interviewed for a book about the Rendlesham event, You Can’t Tell the People. He has also appeared in several television documentaries. In June 2010 Halt issued a notarized affidavit in which he summarized the alleged events of the Rendlesham Forest UFO incident and concluded: “I believe the objects that I saw at close quarter were extraterrestrial in origin and that the security services of both the United States and the United Kingdom have attempted – both then and now – to subvert the significance of what occurred at Rendlesham Forest and RAF Bentwaters by the use of well-practiced methods of disinformation.”
