Rumors about a secretive hangar at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base have been circulating for decades.
When it comes to secretive government facilities housing evidence of extraterrestrial visitation, there is nowhere more synonymous with the concept than Nevada's infamous Area 51.
But there is another such place rumored to house captured alien technology - Hangar 18 - which is said to have been situated at Ohio's Wright-Patterson Air Force Base since the 1940s.
Most famously, this otherwise unassuming building was said to have been used to house some of the debris recovered from the site of the alleged flying saucer crash near Roswell, New Mexico in 1947.
It's an idea backed up by former military pilots such as Oliver Henderson - who claimed to have flown debris and even alien bodes to the base - and Marion 'Black Mac' Magruder - whose father reportedly maintained that he had seen an actual live extraterrestrial entity at the base.
"It was a shameful thing that the military destroyed this creature by conducting tests on it," he said.
In the 1960s, presidential nominee Senator Barry Goldwater of Arizona was so fascinated by what might lie within Hangar 18 that he tried to get permission to enter but was ultimately denied access.
In 1974, Robert Spencer Carr - a UFO researcher - claimed to have been told by a high-ranking military source that the infamous hangar contained "two flying saucers of unknown origin" as well as the bodies of 12 extraterrestrial beings upon which autopsies had been carried out.
Officials at the base itself however have always denied such reports.
"Periodically, it is erroneously stated that the remains of extraterrestrial visitors are or have been stored at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base," the US Air Force previously said in a statement.
"There are not now, nor have there ever been, any extraterrestrial visitors or equipment on Wright-Patterson Air Force Base."
