1947 Alleged and disputed Roswell UFO incident

The Roswell event was a crash of a US troop balloon on a Roswell, New Mexico ranch in July 1947. Following conspiracy theories suggesting that the crash was a floating saucer and that the US government covered up the truth. Roswell Army Air Field published a news release on 8 July 1947, reporting on the recovery of a “flying disk” from a property near Roswell. The army immediately removed the announcement and declared the collapsed item to be a conventional weather ball.

The events were exposed not until the end of the 1970s when a retired lieutenant colonel told a UFO researcher that a narrative about the weather balloon was a cover story. After that, ufologists began to promote a range of more and more elaborate constellations, which claimed that an alien spacecraft had collapsed and that the army had recovered the alien inmates that were then hidden.

In 1994, the US Air Force issued a report which identified the crashed item as a nuclear test balloon for the Mogul project. In a second Air Force assessment, published in 1997, “aliens corps” accusations were likely due to a reduction of high-altitude test stupidities.

However, there are conspiracy theories about the occurrence, and the Roswell story remains well publicized. The incident was considered “the world’s most renowned, investigated and denied allegation of UFOs.”

William “Mac” Brazel, an expert on the ranch, found clusters of wreckage at Foster ranch at the end of June or early July 1947, around 50 kilometers from Roswell. Brazel originally identified the substance at the beginning of July, although other sources stated that the garbage had been uncovered in June.

On 8 July 1947, the public information officer of RAAF Walter Haut produced a press release saying that the local employees of the 509th operational group had taken up a ‘flying disk’ on a property near Roswell. Numerous news sites acquired the report instantly.

The flight disk rumors gained momentum when the 509th Eighth Air Force Bomb Group, Roswell Army Air Field, intelligence unit was fortunate enough to acquire a disk with a local rancher and Chaves County Sheriff’s officer.

The rancher stored the disk without telephone services until he called the sheriff’s office, reporting the 509th Bomb Group Intelligence to Maj. Jesse A. Marcel.

Action was immediately taken, and records were recorded at the rancher’s residence. It was examined by the Roswell Air Force and loaned by Major Marcel to a higher command.
