I was reading from one of my older books last night and came across the Bentwaters Air Force Base encounter. I'd been trying to remember the name of it for a little while so it was good to at last find it.
I remember it being a particularly interesting case for me due to the filmed recreations of the event in old documentaries. It is also mentioned in a recent episode of Ancient Aliens. This time with new information I hadn't heard of before.
For those who don't know RAF Bentwaters is a military base near Woodbridge, Suffolk in England. The base was used by the UK during World War II and the U.S. during the Cold War. On December 26, 1980 around 3am an unidentified craft was found by several base personnel. Those present included Servicemen, Sgt. Jim Penniston. After a brief encounter the craft flew away.
Sgt Penniston made detailed notes of it's appearance and copied the symbols on the craft's surface. He also touched it and felt the warmth of it's surface. Penniston said the craft had triangular landing gear. These left impressions when it left and were visable the next day.
Skip ahead 30 years and the story takes a more unusual turn. During interview production for an episode of History Channel's Ancient Aliens Jim Penniston shows them a notebook with binary code in it. He says the morning after the encounter during his downtime he repeatedly saw the same sequence of ones and zeros in his mind. This compelled him to write them down in a notebook. The numbers were analyzed and put into a program in an attempt to decode them. This is what it found.
The story takes an even stranger turn at this point. Under hypnotic regression Jim Penniston claims that the being in the craft were NOT extraterrestrials but in fact HUMANS from a very distant future!
Their mission had something to do with chromosomes. And they use Humans not as breeding stock but as "Band-Aids."
The time travel theory is helped by the fact that the coordinates converge at the town center of Suffok, England. Near the craft's reported location.
