A perfect supplement to Georgina, Brenda & Larry's books: bang up to date, copiously illustrated in colour, page after page of intriguing, well-researched data...
This is the latest (and IMHO, the best!) in John & Dawn's magnum opus:- their great relationship with Col Halt makes this THE definitive account of events at Rendleham Forest!
REVIEW OF THIS BOOK
Haunted Skies Volume 8:
Matt Lyons, former Chairman BUFORA:
We reach 1980 in this instalment of the Haunted Skies series. This edition is the first to go into full colour production, with the addition of being at least an extra two thirds in page content. Volume 8 does include a huge segment dedicated to the Rendlesham incident but it is not a `Rendlesham special' in the sense of detracting from the large number of cases covered outside of this famous incident. In fact, the other events in that year add up to the same relative size of the preceding volumes in this series.
A fighter plane UFO chase in volume 7 leads us to many strange events that fall outside of that key December 1980 date, for example, Base Lieutenant Lori Redfelt gives a description of a strange UFO sighted over the twin bases in Suffolk before the more famous events occur in December that year.
There is a close encounter in an area that was to become famous for its sightings, including a Vehicle Interference case in the Todmorden area. We find accounts from sightings where children have been interviewed again by the authors as adults, amongst many other cases across the whole U.K. Each case is reviewed and original witnesses traced.Read more ›
so glad John and Dawn and Brenda continue to inform and record what is really happening out there ! Thank You Thank You
Following major sightings month by month in 1980, it is a virtual encyclopedia of information, coloured pictures, drawings, witness interviews and narrative detail not seen elsewhere. I especially enjoyed reading about PC Alan Godfrey's sighting, and of course, the Rendlesham Forest incident, which is covered in great but not full detail. I highly recommend this book as adjunct to the excellent books by Jenny Randles, Brenda Butler, Dot Street, Georgina Bruni, and Larry Warren, Peter Robbins, among others. The reader of Volume 8 will not be disappointed with the amount of material presented in an expert manner, although there is some bias that comes through, as further related below.
After reading again, I have decided to downgrade my review to 3 Stars for the following reason: first and foremost, the primary author, John Hanson (primary author's name always appears first in a list of authors) has given too much credibility to Col Charles Halt. Hanson writes on page 432: "Charles Halt continues to try and clear his name,” (Halt never wanted the story released, which jeopardized his advancement in rank) “with regard to what he sees as a slur on his character and his integrity." In what way? Well, if you go thru the pages, you will find Halt providing his own campaign of disinformation. Consider what he said on pp. 310-311, where Brenda Butler and Dot Street are interviewing him, and Dot "showed him Larry Warren's statement, he said that 'it was rubbish; only bits and pieces were true.'" (What 'bits and pieces?Read more ›
