Was anyone stationed at Lakenheath in July 1956 when a B47 Jet Bomber was on a training mission and crashed into an igloo containing three nuclear missiles?

This morning we took the UFO Walk at Rendlesham Forest adjacent to the old USAF/RAF Air Base called Woodbridge but during WWII Sutton Heath, the base commander Lt Col Holt who witnessed this event was quickly shipped back to the States. It was also reported that within 2 days unmarked aircraft flew in direct from the USA with [allegedly] CIA staff aboard No one can adequately give reason to what they saw other than a UFO, some 'official' reports claim that it was Orfordness Lighthouse shining through the forest, if anyone has been there the forest is as black as your hat. So perhaps when/if man landed on the Moon and if/when craft have visited other planets from Earth perhaps the reverse has happened too, I keep an open mind on such matters Web site http://www.ufoevidence.org/documents/doc663.htm

I have just finished reading 'Bawdsey, Birth of the Beam' by Gordon Kinsey [Terence Dalton Limited ISBN 0 86138 017 7] but in part of this book there is a whole section dedicated to RAF Sutton Heath/Woodbridge which was built and used exclusively for Allied Aircraft not being able to make their own bases during WWII

This makes for a fascinating read, in fact you could just imagine being there on one of those crash crews, some landed on a wing and a prayer, others didn't and perished when they ran out of fuel or their kites were so badly shot up that on an attempted landing they 'ground looped' and never made it

I quote from Gordon's book

............this was to be the first of 4115 aircraft to make emergency landings, 1100 due to technical trouble, 995 suffering battle damage, 820 short of fuel and 1200 due to bad weather, mainly fog at their home bases.
