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.

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.

Alien Photos Found in Attic May Be Proof of Roswell UFO Crash

Secret photos from the 1947 Roswell UFO crash found in an attic in Arizona depicting a dissected alien body may be the smoking gun.

Newly discovered photos from the 1947 Roswell UFO crash may be the smoking gun UFOlogists have been waiting for to settle the controversy. Verified by a Kodak film historian as genuine Kodachrome from 1947, the slides are said to contain photographic evidence of an alien body following the incident.

So where did these photos come from?

Bernard Ray was a geologist working in the Roswell area in 1947, where he and his co-workers apparently stumbled upon the cordoned off area. Army personnel instructed them not to interfere, but Ray secretly snapped a few photos of the scene. After his death, his wife Hilda hid the slides inside the inner lining of a trunk in the attic of their Sedona, Arizona home presumably for fear of government reprisal.

The slides were discovered after Hilda’s death in 1989 by a woman preparing the Ray’s belongings for an estate sale. It seems she quickly understood the importance of a photo containing what appears to be an alien 3-4 feet tall, with a large head, lying partially dissected on a gurney with an Army blanket.

Notably, the body in the photo matches descriptions from eyewitnesses in 1947 rather than popular depictions of spacemen from the time.

The photos will finally be revealed to the public by Roswell researcher Donald R. Schmitt during the Cinco de Mayo event at the National Auditorium in Mexico City on May 5, 2015, followed by a presentation at the Roswell UFO Festival in July.
