RAF Bentwater UFO (1956)


On 13th August 1956 the Radar Station at RAF Bentwaters, (RAF and USAF) tracked a UFO flying at 5,000 mph towards the air base at around 10.55pm. A Lockheed T-33 Shooting Star was diverted to check out the object. About an hour later that night another UFO was tracked, this time there was a ground sighting from a control tower, which was witnessed as a bright light travelling very fast. A Douglas C47 Skytrain pilot also made visual contact and other radar stations tracked an object. The last contact on radar showed the object heading Northward.

Home to the USAF 81st Tactical Fighter Wing, RAF Bentwaters was opened in 1944 and closed in 1993.
