A half century later, witnesses insist little green?or maybe brown?men crashed in New Mexico

BY CARLTON STOWERS

The headline in the Roswell Daily Record announcing the saucer crash couldn?t bump a movie photo off page 1. People were much harder to impress in those days.

Letters Letters Letters from the issue of April 3

It was a snow-covered December in 1995 when President Bill Clinton, visiting Northern Ireland in support of the country's new and fragile peace process, spoke to a large gathering that had arrived for a Christmas tree lighting ceremony. The president opted to dismiss politics and keep the mood of his speech light. At one point, he drew laughter as he referred to a letter he'd recently received from a 13-year-old boy in Belfast. "Ryan," the president said, "in case you're out there, here is your answer: No. As far as I know, no spaceship crashed at Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947. And if the Air Force recovered any extraterrestrial bodies, they did not tell me."

Such is the widespread and ongoing fascination attached to a legendary event that many believe actually took place on the late J.B. Foster's sheep ranch more than a half-century ago.

Yeah...a species capable of interstellar travel, with all the technological prowess that implies, gets their magnificent starship to Earth...only to have it crash in bad weather.

There are, actually. One of the most famous abduction stories features 2 on-duty Brooklyn police officers watching a woman get levitated out her apartment window and into a UFO. In addition, Washington DC was continually buzzed by UFOs during a streak in the 50s.

Illinois Flying Triangle

Source: Filer's Files #48 -- 2000; December 4, 2000
http://www.filersfiles.com

PEORIA -- Two objects were seen over the downtown area on November 28, 2000. Each had four bright white lights on them. The first one condensed into one light and suddenly disappeared. The second one was in a wide V formation. It was very low to the ground. Too low to be an airplane. It almost looked like it was going to graze the tops of the Peoria buildings. Then it to condensed into one light and disappeared. The UFOs were against the orange glow of the city lights and were very easy to see. Normally, I would not report something like this but my wife is a skeptic and when she saw this she absolutely freaked. She encouraged me to report this so I did. Thanks to Peter Davenport NUFORC www.ufocenter.com

Editor's Note: Last January a similar craft was seen by four policemen in Southern Illinois. The Discovery Channel has been carrying this Illinois UFO Sighting Television Program in recent weeks and I encourage you to see the show. Drs. Bruce Cornet and Colm Kelleher are the stars of the show.

We shouldn't forget Santa Monica:

Veteran Pilot Encounters UFO With Portholes

Santa Monica, California, January 1, 1978

A dome-shaped UFO with portholes was seen in broad daylight by veteran pilot Floyd P. Hallstrom of Oxnard, California. Hallstrom had been flying for 37 years, 17½ as a Navy combat air crewman and personal crew chief to admirals, including the Commander-in-Chief of the Atlantic Fleet.

Hallstrom had left Oxnard at about 12:35 p.m. in a Cessna 170A bound to San Diego via Los Angeles, following a friend, Jim Victor, who was delivering another plane to a customer at Brown Field, San Diego. The plan was for him to transport Victor back to Oxnard after the delivery. The two kept in touch by radio.

As Hallstrom approached Santa Monica at 7,500 feet altitude, the sky was clear except for a smog layer in the vicinity of Los Angeles International Airport. "At this time I was looking for Jim straight ahead," Hallstrom reported, "when I spotted [the UFO] just on the edge of the haze area above LAX [Los Angeles International Airport] slightly to the east side....I thought it was Jim so I watched it for about a minute because he had just given me his position report, but it seemed to get larger and coming toward me so I naturally realized that it wasn't Jim....

"I started looking to see what it was but I could see no wings on this aircraft although at this time I could see windows which appeared to be passenger windows in the aircraft. As it drew nearer though, I was able to determine that there were no wings or horizontal empennage assembly to the aircraft as a conventional aircraft...."

Hallstrom began wondering if it was some kind of helicopter, but it was approaching at high speed. As the UFO passed about 6,000 feet to his left, he was looking down on it an angle of about 30-45 degrees. Then the true form suddenly became clear to him. There were no rotors, no tail assembly.

"All of a sudden I was able to make out the complete form of a saucer shape or round object...I could see the dome, also very vividly clear, including all the windows....[I] observed it to be of a very bright metal...it was more of a nickel or highly polished chrome or stainless steel type of metal than aluminum because it had more of a mellow glow than [if] it was of the type finish on a high finish aluminum."

About 16 to 20 evenly spaced windows were visible around the circumference of the dome, located just above the base. The dome appeared to be a perfect hemisphere about 20 feet in diameter resting on the base which was about 30 feet in diameter. The UFO continued on a course of about 310 degrees (opposite to Hallstrom's course) with no sign of rotation, oscillation, pitch, roll, or yaw. Neither was there any sign of a propulsion system. The sun reflected off the dome as a bright spot as the UFO passed. After about a minute the object disappeared from view behind the Cessna. Hallstrom estimated its speed at about 650 m.p.h. He quickly took notes and made a sketch of the UFO.

Reaching for his radio microphone, he first called Jim Victor to report what he had seen. Then he notified various FAA authorities.

Hallstrom, who was shaken by the sighting, later had troubling dreams, mostly about UFOs and aliens. He had not taken the subject seriously up to this time, but the implications of what he had seen struck home to him. He later reported that the experience had altered his entire life.

Well they might have just buzzed 'Vegas. That would certainly confuse any advanced species.

More publicity for Roswell, which styles itself as The Alien City and has a little green man for the city logo.

No kidding.

The ones I've seen have usually come after about 10 or 12 drinks but I know they're out there because I did see this one crash near a local Wal-Mart:

Seriesly, I wouldn't joke about something like this. They ARE out there and they're HUGE! :-O

No. As far as I know, no spaceship crashed at Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947

Is this another lie by the bent one? He's no more capable of truth telling than Baghdad Bob.

Professional Courtesy.

The Pod People have advanced with technology so that they no longer must place large pods next to where unwitting earthling monkeyboys sleep,..now their are more sophisticated EM field methods communicated of over the Internet,......

You obviously haven't taken your nap while reading FR recently.

You should try it. It's healthy.

It's good for you. Why get up and go to bed, when you can simply take a short little nap at the keyboard. It's harmless.
