Category: UFO Crash

 

A mysterious airship is said to have crashed in Aurora, Texas on April 17, 1897, exploding into many small fragments. Reportedly, the occupant was child-size and greenish, and the craft contained papers covered with hieroglyphics. The pilot's body is supposed to be buried in the local cemetery. Although the case was widely regarded as a hoax, new investigation brought to light a peculiar alloy that was eventually analyzed by the McDonnell Aircraft Company.

1908-06-30; USSR, Siberia

 

Category: Explosion

 

A mysterious explosion rocked the Jenissei portion of the Siberian forest. People living in the area observed a huge fireball that rose up high in the sky. Russian scientist Kazantsev researched what he described as the Tunguska blast, going so far as trailblazing through the area in search of an impact crater that was never found. Trees in the area, though, were knocked to the ground from an epicenter which, unlike normal blasts, was more elliptical than spherical, following the original object's trajectory. The witnesses who observed the fireball later succumbed to a deadly sickness very much resembling radiation poisoning.

 

Many theories have been suggested as to what caused the blast.

 

Most prevalent among those have been microscopic black hole impact with the Earth, collision with a comet and a nuclear powered extraterrestrial vehicle losing control and crashing.

Category: UFO Crash

 

May, 1947 - Spitzbergen, Norway - A report by journalist Dorothy Kilgallen stated that British scientists and airmen were excavating the wreckage of a mysterious flying ship. The Swedish military acknowledged its extraterrestrial origin and reported 17 bodies were found. The story appeared as a tiny blip for only one day in the U.S. news media before it was silenced by the military.

Grady L. Barnett reputedly found a crashed UFO

 

Witnesses discovered the wreckage of a metallic disc resting on the ground with bodies spewed around. The first witness on this scene was Grady L. "Barney" Barnett a civil engineer with the US Soil Conservation Service who was on a military assignment at the time. He relayed the story to some friends in early July 1947. He says the metallic disc was about 25 to 30 feet in diameter. While he was examining it, a small group of people arrived on the scene who stated that they were part of an archaeological research team from the University of Pennsylvania.

Category: UFO Crash

 

July 2, 1947 - Roswell, New Mexico - The most famous and thoroughly investigated by journalists, this is the crash that launched Majestic-12. It was the first and only time the U.S. government publicly admitted it had recovered a crashed flying saucer. Within hours, the craft was whisked off to Wright-Patterson AFB and a new cover story emerged, claiming it had been only a weather balloon (Project Mogul). In recent years, the officer responsible for that cover story has recanted. Three or four humanoid bodies were recovered; one was alive for a short time.

Del Rio, TX 12/50, Colonel Robert Willingham or Laredo, Texas - The concern escalated when a second crash occurred on 06/12/50 on the Mexican side of the Texas/Mexican border. The craft struck the earth at such a high speed that very little could be found. What was found was taken to a nearby Atomic Energy Commission facility for examination. It was determined that the pieces recovered belonged to a similar craft as that recovered at Roswell. It was decided that the alien technology must be kept out of foreign hands at all costs.
