ROSWELL UFO

THE ROSWELL “ALIEN” INCIDENT OCCURRED MORE THAN 50 YEARS AGO, BUT IT STILL GENERATES A HUGE AMOUNT OF INTEREST. SO, WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED THERE?

The secrets behind the world’s most famous alien story.

It all started in New Mexico (USA) in 1947. One day in July of that year, rancher Mac Brazel was out checking his sheep after a night of thunderstorms when he discovered a large mass of debris in a shallow hole several hundred metres long. Brazel drove into Roswell and contacted the sheriff, George Wilcox. Later, Sheriff Wilcox notified authorities at Roswell Army Air Field. Shortly afterwards, the military closed off the area, eventually taking the wreckage to a base in Dayton (Ohio).

What followed was confusing, to say the least. On the morning of 8th July 1947, Colonel William Blanchard (the Commander of the 509th Bomb Group) issued a statement claiming that the wreckage was from a “crashed disk” (a UFO). However, a few hours later, a second press release was issued. This time it was from the office of General Roger Ramey (the Commander of the Eighth Air Force at Fort Worth Army Air Field in Texas, 400 miles from the crash site). It claimed that Colonel Blanchard had made a terrible mistake and that the wreckage was actually from a weather balloon, not a crashed disk.
