I was heading to work on midshift on Mildenhall RAFB around 2300hrs when I pulled up to a stop sign on perimeter road and saw orange spheres shooting up above the tree line. There were more that a dozen lights and they hovered in place until all of them were airborne. They then moved from outside the fence line over the flight line toward Mildenhall village. These objects were fairly low for Aircraft yet they emitted no audible sound for their altitude and propulsion. Being a jet engine mechanic in the Air Force I have never seen any kind of craft of this configuration, that was soundless at such a low altitude. I contacted the Air traffic control tower on base and they said that they "didnt" see anything. For those with no aircraft experience a control tower is very high up with windows all around. To say that they couldnt see dozens of glowing orange spheres in the night sky is preposterous. All I have is my account of that night and am shocked that the USAF says there were no witnesses that night.I saw the objects as their trajectory took them across the flight line for around 30 mins until I was called back to work. I am still to this day curious and astonished as to what type of craft could do the things that these orange spheres/orbs were able that night.
RAF Mildenhall is named after the nearby town of Mildenhall, Suffolk. It was established as a Royal Air Force station in 1930, and opened in 1934. During World War II, RAF Bomber Command used the station for operational combat missions until 1945.
Placed on standby status after the war, it was reopened by the Royal Air Force and became a USAF-RAF joint operation base on 11 July 1950. Assigned to Strategic Air Command to station B-29 Superfortress bombers that date. It became a B-50 Superfortress base in 1952, and a B-47 Stratojet and KC-97 Stratotanker base in 1953 until 1958.
Closed for runway repairs throughout 1958, the Military Air Transport Service transferred its main United Kingdom terminal to Mildenhall from RAF Burtonwood on 1 March 1959, and the base became "The Gateway to the United Kingdom", for most U.S. military personnel and dependants arriving or departing the United Kingdom since.
Assigned from Strategic Air Command to United States Air Forces in Europe on 1 September 1959 and RAF relinquished joint operations status that date. Has been in continuous USAFE operation to present. NOTE: The above image is a rendering.
