Fun Fact Friday: Flying Saucers

The official White House position on ET. (whitehouse.gov)

Did you know that the FBI recently published a 1950 memo in which an Air Force investigator claimed to have seen flying saucers and alien bodies recovered in New Mexico? According to the memo, the craft were “circular in shape with raised centers, approximately 50 feet in diameter. Each one was occupied by three bodies of human shape but only 3 feet tall.” The memo also goes on to say these alleged aliens were “dressed in metallic cloth of a very fine texture. Each body was bandaged in a manner similar to the blackout suits used by speed fliers and test pilots.”

This account, which took place three years after the famed Roswell incident, doesn’t speculate whether the aliens were looking for their lost friends, or simply visiting, but the investigator does theorize that “The Government has a very high-powered radar set up in that area, and it is believed the radar interferes with the controlling mechanism of the saucers.” Who knew?

It would seem that the FBI wasn’t overly concerned about this real-life X-File, because the memo concludes with “No further evaluation was attempted by [the FBI] concerning the above.”

    That is very interesting. I have a brother who is retired Air Force and was last stationed in Las Vegas. I noticed when visiting one time that there were airplanes without numbers on them leaving the airport and flying a short distance into the mountains to land. I asked him about these planes and he said, Yeah, those aren’t supposed to exist. They are doing some top secret stuff in those mountains over there. Makes you wonder what else we don’t know about…
