Nick Pope Recalls Rendlesham Forest: 'It's A Better Case Than Roswell'
Rendlesham Depiction

During an interview, British UFO sightings investigator Nick Pope recalls the most prominent incident during his 21 years working for the Ministry of Defense: The Rendlesham Forest incident.

The frank discussion regarding his past work comes after the British government finished their five-year program to declassify the entire UFO archive.

"That was round about 52,000 pages of documents. A lot of it was just fire lanterns and weather balloons and things like that. But there were some more interesting cases in there too," says Pope to Vulture Beat.

From Pope's experience, he believes the 1980 Rendlesham Forest incident to not only be the most famous case, but also the most valid UFO sightings incident as well, more so even than Roswell.

"A UFO was actually seen to land in a forest between two military bases. This was in the U.K., but they were American Air Force bases," recalls Pope. "This small triangular craft of some sort came down in a small clearing, and a patrol of security police, who had originally thought a plane had crashed, went out and encountered this weird thing."

"They saw strange symbols on the side of it that looked a bit like Egyptian hieroglyphs. Then it rose up above the ground very slowly, cleared the treetops, and shot away to the horizon in an instant.

Two days later it came back. It didn't land that time, but it was flying around in the area."

According to Pope, the UFO sighting has also held serious consequences for the eyewitnesses.

"The witnesses included the deputy base commander. It's a phenomenal story. Some of the guys now have health issues. There's talk of a federal lawsuit."
