Leading UFO expert says he still isn’t sure if the flying saucer actually crashed in Roswell.

News about UFO accident in Roswell, New York Mexico sent shock waves across the country, but what was once a headline on July 8, 1947 now seems like nothing more than an urban legend.

The Roswell event began with a military-owned flying saucer that was nothing more than a weather balloon, and UFO expert Papa Nick told DailyMail.com that “flipping the story 180 degrees” was effective at “killing the story.”

Nick Popewho led British governmentUFO project from 1991 to 1994, told DailyMail.com in a telephone interview: “The US military issued a press release that we have discovered a flying disc that they say was once one of those mysterious discs that were seen over the US a few weeks before. .

“24 hours later, they completely changed the story.”

Pope suggested that if the wreckage at Roswell were out of this world, then it could be one of the best cover stories in American history.

“I’m not saying it’s intentional, but the best cover story is one that makes you laugh, makes you roll your eyes,” he said.

“If something becomes a joke, serious politicians, military men, scientists and journalists do not want to touch it, and if they do, they proceed from the fact that they do not really believe in it.”

The “reversal of the narrative 180 degrees,” as Pope calls it, refers to the 509th Bomb Group’s Intelligence Directorate announcing at noon that day that they had a flying saucer, and then claiming that the military later determined it was a flying saucer. plate. radar balloon.

“I still haven’t decided,” Pope said when asked if he believed an alien plane crashed on the ranch 75 years ago.

“As much as I believe in life there, I’m not sure about visitations.”

The wreckage was first discovered by W. W. “Mack” Brazel, who was leading his sheep to a nearby stream.

Brazel noticed debris above his ground and called authorities on the scene for a deeper analysis, which they determined was a flying saucer.

The Roswell Daily Record quickly ran the story on the front page under the headline: RAAF Captured Flying Saucer on a Ranch in the Roswell Area.

The article states that the wreckage is a metallic, lightweight yet durable material.

But the excitement seemed to go away in an instant, and no one thought twice about it.

“The late 40s were a more trusting era,” Pope said.

“It was an era when trust in the government and the military was very high, and it was an era before the Internet and social media.

“Because most people didn’t have a phone, the morning paper was their window to the world. I think it was taken as gospel.”

Pope also pointed out that any UFO books written in the 1950s–1960s contain no information about the Roswell event.

“Killing history was so effective,” he said.

Pope went on to explain that it would be interesting if the 75-year-old case were solved and if the wreckage turned out to be from a UFO.

“I won’t pretend we have hard evidence because we don’t,” he said.

1947 Roswell Wreck Mystery

In July 1947, a rancher reported debris strewn across his land.

Authorities were called to the scene and, after examining the wreckage, determined that it was chunks of flying sauce.

The front page of a local newspaper reported that a Roswell Army battlefield had found a flying saucer on a New Mexico ranch after a metal, lightweight but strong material was scattered across the ground.

“At noon this afternoon, the intelligence section of the 509th Bombardment Group at Roswell Army Airfield reported that a ‘flying saucer’ had been sighted at the airfield,” reported the Roswell Daily Record of July 8, 1947.

However, shortly after the discovery of the “UFO” made headlines, the War Department in Washington released a statement claiming that the wreckage was the remains of a weather balloon.

“Conversely, the people at the Roswell military base were where only the atomic bomb squadron was stationed, and these people were the best of the best.”

“If ever there were people less likely to misidentify a weather balloon, it was them.”

Playing the part of the devil’s advocate, Pope says the cover-up could have been a way to hide some sort of top-secret weapon that had crashed.

Talking about UFOs and aliens is not taboo in the US, as over the past year the government released video footage of military aircraft chasing what could be flying saucers.

There was also a recent congressional hearing on UFOs, in which three former troopers testified about their encounter with UFOs at a US military base in the Middle East in 2014.

They said they saw eight bright objects hovering and hurtling across the sky at incredible speeds from a desert outpost in the Sinai, on the border with Egypt, around December 2014.

Three cavalry scouts trained to recognize aircraft believe that the objects they witnessed were of non-human origin.

“It’s strange that, despite all this interest and congressional hearings, you almost never hear Senators or Representatives of Congress mention the R for Roswell,” Pope said.

“Maybe the stigma is still there and they can’t bring themselves to tell Roswell and ask what about Roswell.

“The original ‘cover story’, if there was one, could have been too effective and may have blotted out people in the media, the public and the government.”
