Sorry, this speculation has zero correlation with the reported incidents
over two days, allegedly with radar contact, photographs, a Lt Col leading
the investigation team on the second night and allegedly seeing beams of
light blasted downward from a UFO, blah blah. James Easton and others have
now picked the entire story apart, and it seems to be a congeries of
confusion, misinterpretation of local light sources, group hysteria, maybe
some genuine oddity (an early model Stealth aircraft? were they trialling
such things in 1980? In Britain?), and lots of subsequent abduction
bullshit, hypnosis conflation, the delicious lure of TV and conference
