Over the years i have explained the real reason why Ufos are often seen near military bases - Nuclear weapons. Ufos actively have been monitoring human use of and storage of nuclear weapons - thus why many ufo sightings occur near these bases time and time again. Numerous incidents have been recorded with the intervention of Ufos to destroy nuclear weapons and deactivate nuclear silos . Thus this is a major security threat to governments and military's world wide and the real reason why the truth about Ufos remain undisclosed - that is they have the ability to deactivate our most powerful weapons - nukes.
It has always been postulated that a nuclear storage facility was the reason for the reason the Ufo landed at RAF Bentwaters but it is only recently that this has been be confirmed:
According to a new article at Earth Files:
The RAF Bentwaters Weapons Storage Area had nuclear weapons – a TOP SECRET at the time. Those nuke bunkers were watched around the clock by security from the WSA Watch Tower. On the night that RAF Bentwater Deputy Base Commander Lt. Col. Charles I. Halt investigated lights and beam phenomena in Rendlesham Forest, the D Flight Security Flight Chief was Sgt. Rick Bobo.
The Delta Flight Security Chief in the Bentwaters tower the night of December 27- 28 was Sergeant Rick Bobo. The tower was fifty feet above the ground to give a clear, 360-degree view. Sgt. Bobo's priority was to report any threat to the WSA.
