Retired Air Force Lt. Col. Richard French has claimed that there were two crashes at Roswell in 1947.
Conspiracy theories have surrounded the controversial events at Roswell, New Mexico for decades - some believe that a UFO and its otherworldly occupants had been retrieved and covered up by the military while others accept the official story claiming that the object was nothing more than a weather balloon. Now Lt. Col. Richard French has another take on the mystery - he claims that there were actually two crashes, both of them involving extraterrestrial visitors.
"There were actually two crashes at Roswell, which most people don't know," he said. "The first one was shot down by an experimental U.S. airplane that was flying out of White Sands, N.M., and it shot what was effectively an electronic pulse-type weapon that disabled and took away all the controls of the UFO, and that's why it crashed."
According to Richard French, reports of a second crash reached him a few days later. "It was within a few miles of where the original crash was," he said. "We think that the reason they were in there at that time was to try and recover parts and any survivors of the first crash. I'm [referring to] the people from outer space -- the guys whose UFO it was."
"The legend, rehashed by conspiracy theorists in countless documentaries, revolves around allegations that an unusual object fell from the sky -- an object so bizarre that the US Air Force issued a press release that a flying saucer had crashed."
