THE GATE RUNNER: How a bizarre breach at Mildenhall transformed base security across the Air Force
By: Stephen Losey
September 5 at 5:51 PM


It was about 1 p.m. when the odd man with a teddy bear strapped to his chest showed up at the main gate to RAF Mildenhall in England. He was from the Secret Service, he said, as he attempted to show the guard a British passport as identification.

“This is a matter of national security, and I must speak to the president,” he said.

Seconds later, he gunned the engine, tires squealing, through the gate and easily swerved around a pop-up barricade. The shocked guards quickly radioed an alert: There was an intruder on Mildenhall — and nobody knew what he was going to do.
