The Aztec UFO Incident Details the Strange Story of ‘The Other Roswell’
The story of a UFO crash in Aztec, New Mexico was considered a hoax for decades, but The Aztec UFO Incident reveals evidence of an elaborate military cover-up.
The Aztec UFO Incident by Ramsey Scott, Suzanne Ramsey, and Frank Thayer, PhD
In 1948, a year after the controversial incident in Roswell, a massive UFO crashed in Aztec, New Mexico. The military soon arrived to remove the evidence, including the bodies of 16 humanoids inside the wreckage. At least that’s what Frank Scully wrote in his 1950 book Behind the Flying Saucers.
It was revealed later that the story was told to Scully by two con-men, Silas Newton and Leo A. Gebauer, who were in the area trying to sell devices to find gold and oil they claimed were based on alien technology recovered from the Aztec crash. When the metal from one of the devices was tested, however, it was ordinary aluminum.
So the whole thing was a hoax, right?
Not according to Ufologists who began taking the Aztec UFO story much more seriously in the 1970s. In The Aztec UFO Incident, authors by Ramsey Scott, Suzanne Ramsey, and Frank Thayer, PhD offer up compelling evidence of a crash and subsequent conspiracy to keep it under wraps.
The Aztec UFO Incident–the first ever widely publicized report of a recovered flying saucer–was derided as a hoax for decades. But now the Ramseys and Frank Thayer reveal the exact spot where the craft landed and show how the 100-foot diameter saucer was moved to a secret laboratory. Witnesses to the incident who were interviewed by the authors affirm that they were sworn to secrecy by the military. The authors also reveal the names of scientists who worked on the craft after its recovery.
Also included are previously unseen documents from the CIA, FBI, U.S. Air Force, and U.S. Army that constituted a cover-up whose sole purpose was to surround the Aztec story with a smokescreen of lies, misinformation, and destructive allegations.
Roswell is no longer the only proven flying saucer recovery we know about. The Aztec UFO Incident is a must-read for historians and UFO students alike.
