A new book chronicles how a USAF pilot witnessed a Roswell-like crash near the Rio Grande in 1955.

In what one UFO investigator has called "one of the most amazing UFO stories I have ever heard", new details have come to light about a 1955 UFO crash near the Texas-Mexico border, reminicent of the crash in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947. US Air Force Pilot Robert B. Willingham has described how he was part of a bomber escort when he witnessed an usual object crash near the Rio Grande. Like the Roswell crash, when Willingham and a friend returned to the site they were forbidden access by Mexican soldiers who had taken control of the area.

"A retired US Air Force colonel and former fighter jet pilot says that he chased a UFO across West Texas and watched it crash along the Rio Grande River near Del Rio, Texas."

Boon are you telling me you've never had your plasma drive backfire on you? It's pretty messy and not good when you are light-years away from home. Well if your plasma drive backfires on you I wonder just how far you can coast in deep space ? At FTL I figure one could make it about any where given you have enough life support .and Beer to get you through the nights ! Well Maybe they just landed long enough to tip a few cows and pick up some of our women. Then off they went on there way to Milliyways !

Take a good look at the colonel, he gave up his retirement? That's the biggest indicator that this story is fishy. If you look closely at this story you'll see it just doesn't hold up.
