Roswell - were there two crashes ?

Posted on Wednesday, 8 August, 2012 | Comment icon 322 comments | News tip by: archernyc

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."

If you really want to know what happened in New Mexico in 1947, you'd need to see the records of a couple of guys: Lincoln LaPaz and my "old friend" Sheridan Cavitt. The former was one of the scientist called in to study these crashing "meteors" (LOL) and the other was the base CIG/CIA guy. I know they called him counter-intelligence but he was well-known to be a CIA spook, and he never talked about anything except what they told him. He was yet another guy who seemed to have left no real paper trail, either about UFOs or anything else.

Really MacG? You've gone through the La Paz records and determined he was involved with crashed Flying Saucers as opposed to studying the Green Fireballs phenomena? Or is this just more conspiracy and baseless conjecture on your part? The truth is La Paz was in Oklahoma during the Roswell events.

Sorry for just dropping in but i red about Roswell the main event here : So the two people who witnessed this with their very own eyes said " If this would be the case of a WEATHER BALLOON then can someone tell how is it possible for a ballon to fall at such high speeds... Then there is this:

I'm pretty sure it was our first attempt at putting a Motel Six into space, it just went terribly wrong.

It is another conflict. Who do you believe? Try this on for size. I do not think the Wilmots saw a pulse weapon. Some claim it is a death ray. I think Bee ran with the pulse weapon. It is a pretty exciting tale, and I feel she has a penchant for technology. The entire statement goes something like: Someone crossed the galaxy in a 15-20 foot spaceship? Good God. Now that is advanced technology! Or perhaps a giant red flag. Some claimed a mothership, which never retrieved the craft, helped the craft, sent rescue missions for these poor aliens lying in the desert for days on end, noth... [More]

Hey psyche This site is very very flawed... "to gain possession of a disc through the cooperation of one of the local rancher This statment is very false... he didn't cooperate he was forced to... and left with nothing, they said to him that he hasn't seen anything or else.. bad things might happen as i recall from a old documentary on the subject.. The flying object landed on a ranch near Roswell sometime last week Really it landed? I thought it crashed? Sorry this site is not credible in this everything... i mean whoever made this didn't do a good job... Ow lik... [More]

Ow just like to add that military staff wasn't stupid.. they would know what is balloon and what isn't...Plus people wouldn't make all the fuzz if a balloon went down, but when locals said it was weird... just adds up to stack of inconsistencies that led to Ufophobia...
