RS/33 (Ricerche Speciale [Special Research] 33) Cabinet to study the 'Velivoli Non Convenzionali' (unconventional aircraft) after a possible UFO crash near Milan, and a definite 'reverse-enginering' approached to 'copy' what he Fascists considered to be purported English or French secret aerial spy devices. The Italian studies led to different concepts of round flying machines, to be used by Germans at the end of WWII.
Charlotte Mann, grandfather of witness Reverend William Huffman.
Craft: "It was broken and scattered all around, but one large piece was still together and it appeared to have a rounded shape with no edges or seams. It had a very shiny metallic finish. You could see inside one section and see what looked like a metal chair with a panel with many dials and gauges - none familiar-looking to him.
Two of the plain-clothes men picked up one of the little men, held it under its arms. A picture was taken. About two weeks after it happened, he came home with a picture of the two men holding the little man..."
Note: It was confirmed by UFOlogist Leonard Stringfield the photograph seen by Charlotte Mann (now lost) is not the bogus 1950 April Fool's Day joke photograph in Germany showing some men in hats holding a silver man.
"..small man about 4 feet tall with a large head and long arms. He was thin and no bone structure was apparent; kind of soft-looking. He had no hair on his head or body, with large, oval, slightly slanted eyes but not like an oriental from left to right, more up and down. He had no ears at all and no nose like ours. There appeared to be only a couple of small holes where his nose should have been. His mouth was as if you had just cut a small straight line where it should have been. His skin or suit looked like crinkled-up tin foil and it covered all of him...I believe he had three fingers, all quite long, but I can't be sure of this."
Reportedly, recovery was effected by a team from the US Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI). An unusuall craft and small bodies. UFO crashed horizontal on level ground. Family of ONI recovery team saw photographs.
"In one of the pictures, he himself (witness uncle) was holding up a small spindly dead body, about 3.5 feet tall - the picture had been taken by a friend. A small pile of other small bodies was over to one side. The UFO took up nearly the entire frame."
Witness (by the pseudonym Mary Nunn) served in a key civilian capacity in one of the two armed forces.
A spacecraft crashed at an Army base. Described as generally round in shape, the craft was 15 feet wide and 10 feet high, divided into three main sections: a control room, a compartment with four seats and a bottom bay equipped with a trap-door exit. In the control section was one large window and a number of smaller windows around the sides. The craft was silver in colour with markings on the inside as well as the outside. There was also crew members.
Four members, taken alive, died about two weeks later of apparent starvation. Described as five feet tall, weighing about 90 to 100 pounds, milky white smooth skin, without hair. Facial features were generalized; the eyes large and black like bug eyes, ears were small, lips thin slits. The fingers, numbering five, were long, bony; the feet flat, about size 6 with half-inch bony toes. The female had small breast and, according to the source, the race could reproduce but there was no hint as to their genitalia...They had teeth, very white, wide and short.
A number of people watched as a "projectile trailing luminous smoke" slammed into a beach leaving a yard wide, shallow crater containing a slag-like material, some of it reduced to powder. A newspaper reporter found a cylinder about twenty or thirty meters in diamerter. Military authorities investigated, produced ambiguous results, and finally accused the witnesses of imagining things.
News wires ran stories of Swedish ghost rocket crashes. Many of these UFOs fell into lakes. Claims that fragments were retrieved by the military have been denied by officials.
Dr. von Braun explained how he and his (unnamed, for now) associates had been taken to the crash site after most of the military were pulled back. They did a quick analysis of what they found. He told me the craft did not appear to be made of metal as we know metal on earth. He said it seemed to be created from something biological, like skin. I was lost as to what he indicated, other than thinking perhaps the craft was "alive." The recovered bodies were temporarily being kept in a nearby medical tent. They were small, very frail and had large heads. Their eyes were large. Their skin was grayish and reptilian in texture. He said it looked similar to the skin texture of rattle snakes he'd seen several times at White Sands. His inspection of the debris had even him puzzled: very thin, aluminum colored, like silvery chewing gum wrappers. Very light and extremely strong. The interior of the craft was nearly bare of equipment, as if the creatures and craft were part of a single unit. -- Clark C. McClelland
Walter Haut affidavit confessing to seeing spacecraft and alien bodies at Roswell base hangar.
The next day, according to a number of eyewitnesses including Major (later, Colonel) Edwin Easley, Frank Kaufmann, Sergeant Thomas Gonzales, Dr. W. Curry Holden, and Lieutenant Colonel Albert Lovejoy Duran, the remains of an alien craft that had crashed were recovered. The object, triangle-shaped with a batlike rear wing, was taken by the Army, first into the base at Roswell, and later transported to Wright Field outside of Dayton, Ohio.
Hoaxed UFO crash. Investigated by FBI.
Author Frank Scully, in his 1950 book, Behind the Flying Saucers, Scully reported that in 1948 the Air Force had captured three flying saucers in New Mexico and Arizona. Scully had learned of this incident from a confidence trickster named GeBauer. Sixteen corpses were removed from each craft and medically examined. Their three-and-a-half-foot stature. It became obvious almost immediately that the content of Scully's book was a hoax, the rumors continued to spread and became lavishly embellished in the process.
Arthur Bay, who uncovered a top secret memorandum about "Geo Magnetics" by Canadian scientist Wilbert B. Smith for the Canadian Government [In the text, he mentioned, "We believe that we are on the track of something which may well prove to be the introduction of a new technology. The existence of a different technology is borne out by the investigations which are being carried out at the present time in relation to flying saucers."] also found an interview by Wilbert Smith with Dr Robert I. Sarbacher (American Scientist) in September 1950 and shared it with UFO researcher Len Stringfield.
Smith said, "I have read Scully's book [Behind the Flying Saucers] and I would like to know how much of it is true."
Sarbacher said, "The facts reported in the book are substantially correct."
"Then flying saucers exist?"
"Yes, they exist."
Therefore it is easy to believe from the above documented statements that a flying saucer crash in New Mexico at Roswell might have been the incident that inspired the reports. Details were wrong, but the overall report was accurate.
In each case, it is reported that the craft and small bodies were retrieved and hidden by the Air Force. All purported witnesses state that the incidents occurred some time during the 1950s.
During a conversation with Dr Rolf Alexander at Mexico City airport in 1951, General George Marshall, US Army Chief of Staff in the Second World War and later US Secretary of State, allegedly revealed that American authorities had recovered alien craft and bodies. On three (uspecified) occasions, said Marshall, there had been landings which had proved disastrous for the occupants: breathing the heavily oxygenated atmosphere of Earth supposedly had incinerated the visitors from within.
European news services carried the story of a UFO crash. Reportedly, British and American military experts were called in to assist in the investigation. The story remains controversial.

Three fisherman saw a flying-disk plunging towards the ocean. Just as it seemed to about to enter the water , turned sharply upward and exploded into thousands of fiery fragments. The fisherman were able retrieve some metallic debris which had fallen near the beach. After chemical analysis it was announced the metal was magnesium of a higher purity than attainable in purification methods known to mankind. Utlilizing the best techniques known to purify magnesium at that time would have required repeated sublimation of the metal under a very high vacuum. Engineer James Harder has described the magnesium as having a close-packed hexagonal crystalline structure. The strength of this alloy may be relevant in the context of spacecraft construction. Walter Walker and Robert Johnson, metallurgists has found that the metal was solified, the grain runs in a single direction. No studies in directional graining were carried out before 1957 lends support to the fishermen's claims.
Injured survivor of a crash. The alien was taken to a hospital where doctors struggled to take off his metal suit. When they removed an unusaul armband, the patient died. Before his body was sent to Russia for examination, it was observed that he had an unusual number of digits and that his blood and organs were different from those of human beings.
Sen. Barry Goldwater, a brigadier-general in the Air Force reserve, tried to check out the rumor that at Wright-Patterson there was a secret "Blue Room" where UFO remains were kept. When he asked his friend Gen. Curtis LeMay about the story, LeMay gave him "holy hell," Golwater would tell the New Yorker (April 25, 1988), informed him that he did not have the necessary clearence, and warned him never to bring up the subject again.

Rumors perpetuated by a wave of television and radio reports claimed that craft and frozen alien corpses were being held at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.
Triangle craft appears to crash. Multiple witnesses. As the witnesses relate their encounter, they remark that the object they observed, was like the one observed in North Carolina at about the same time.
Triangular shaped craft appears to crash.
UFOlogist Leonard Springfield announced that he had reports from twenty-four unimpeachable sources that spaceships and frozen alien corpses are being held at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.
For example, one informant was a woman who worked at Wright-Patterson for a number of years. Possessing a high security clearence, she was given access to much classified material. In due course she retired and subsequently learned that she was dying of cancer. Before her death she confided to a ufologist (remarking, "Uncle Sam can't do anything to me once I'm in my grave") that her work had included the cataloging of all incoming UFO material. She processed about 1000 items, she claimed, seeing to it that they were photographed and tagged. Some of the items were from the interior of a crashed UFO which had been brought to the base. She also saw two bodies carried on a cart from one room to the next. The bodies, preserved in chemicals, were of generally human appearence, although they were only four or five feet tall and had lager-than-normal heads and slanted eyes.
William Spaulding of Ground Saucer Watch (GSW) possessed signed affidavits from retired colonels in military intelligence that crashed disk and a thumbless entity had been retrieved and transported to a military base, possibly Langley Field.
