Aliens landed and interfered with missiles, US pilots claim

Aliens have deactivated British and US nuclear missiles, according to senior US military pilots.
The beings have repeated their efforts in the US and have been active since 1948, the men said, and accused the respective governments of trying to keep the information secret.
The unlikely claims were compiled by six former US airmen and another member of the military who interviewed or researched the evidence of 120 ex-military personnel.
The information they have collected suggests that aliens could have landed on Earth as recently as seven years ago.
The men's aim is to press the British and American governments to recognise the extra-terrestrial visits as fact. Their views are to be presented at a meeting in Washington.
One of the men, Capt Robert Salas, said: "The US Air Force is lying about the national security implications of unidentified aerial objects at nuclear bases and we can prove it."
He said he witnessed such an event first-hand on March 16, 1967, at Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana, which housed Minuteman nuclear missiles.
"I was on duty when an object came over and hovered directly over the site," Capt Salas said.
"The missiles shut down -- 10 Minuteman missiles. And the same thing happened at another site a week later. There's a strong interest in our missiles by these objects, wherever they come from. I personally think they're not from planet Earth."
Others claim to have seen similar activity in the UK.
Col Charles Halt said he saw a UFO at the former military base RAF Bentwaters, near Ipswich, 30 years ago, during which he saw beams of light fired into the base, then heard on the military radio that aliens had landed inside the nuclear storage area.
He said: "I believe that the security services of both the United States and the United Kingdom have attempted -- both then and now -- to subvert the significance of what occurred at RAF Bentwaters by the use of well-practised methods of disinformation."
The site was then the base of the US 81st Tactical Fighter Wing. Capt Bruce Fenstermacher, a former US Air Force officer, also claims he saw a UFO hovering above a nuclear base in Wyoming in 1976.
UFO researcher Robert Hastings held a press conference in Washington to "address the vital issue of UFO incursions at US nuclear weapons sites over the past six decades".
Mr Hastings said: "More than 100 former or retired US Air Force personnel -- once trusted to operate or guard weapons of mass destruction -- have come forward and revealed ongoing UFO surveillance of, and occasional interference with, our nuclear weapons.
"This information alters the historical perspective on the nuclear arms race and much, much more.
"The fact that the Pentagon and CIA have successfully kept the truth from public view for so long is in itself mind-boggling," he added.
The Rendlesham Forest incident, often described as "Britain's Roswell" was used as one example of evidence aliens had targeted nuclear weapons.
