Notorious (July 2, 1947) flying saucer crash site, near the town of the same name in New Mexico.
A fierce storm raged across the desert near Roswell on that fateful night. On the following morning W. W. "Mac" Brazel found strange debris scattered over a large area of his ranch. This consisted of a tinfoil-like substance, strands of wire, small metallic rods covered with undecipherable writing, and pieces of parchment-like paper.
Brazel collected a few scraps and gave them to the local sheriff, who contacted the Roswell Army Air Field, then the home of the world's only atomic attack unit, the 509th Bomb Group.
A group of investigators sent by the 509th spent a day at Brazel's ranch collecting the debris to take it back to the base...
There is a lot of speculation about what really happen. Reports say that over 100 miles away, Grady L. Barnett came upon what he thought was a crashed flying disc (presumably the object from which the debris at Roswell were a part of).
Beside it lay four small dead bodies, with frail limbs and disproportionately large heads with big, slanted eyes. According to Barnett, their bodies were encased in tight, one-piece, gray suits with no visible fastenings.
Here too, the military was quickly on the scene. Barnett and another group of witnesses were ushered away and ordered not to speak about the incident.
Shortly afterward, on July 8, 1947, an official press release, approved by a Lt. Walter Haut, announced that the flying saucer mystery had been solved, and that saucer debris had been recovered by the 509th Bomb Group.
Within hours, however, that press release had been canceled. The debris from both incidents was reportedly flown to Carswell Air Force Base in Fort Worth, Texas, where Brig. Gen. Roger Ramey, commander of the Eighth Air Force, called a press conference. The flying saucer, Ramey explained, was nothing more exotic than the remains of a standard weather balloon.
Regardless of what the truth may be, Roswell remains as one of UFO enthusiasts most compelling cases for government participation in a massive cover-up.
