Truth Behind Roswell ‘Alien’ That Made a Woman Faint

 

Article by Rick Neale                     February 6, 2020                     (floridatoday.com)

• In February 2012, at the Air Force Technical Applications Center (AFTAC) in Patrick Air Force Base near Melbourne, Florida, retired Air Force Colonel Chuck McBrearty told the annual awards banquet audience the “true” genesis of the ‘alleged’ Roswell “alien encounter” and UFO crash ‘myth’. McBrearty said he was told the story by Air Force scientist Walter Singlevich in the late 1980’s. Singlevich was a member of the Manhattan Project that developed the first atomic bomb. Working out of Alamogordo Air Force Base in New Mexico (now known as Holloman Air Force Base) in the 1940s and 50s, Singlevich became one of America’s pioneering experts on analyzing nuclear materials at the dawn of the Cold War.

• According to AFTAC command historian James Michael Young, in the late 1940s Singlevich’s job was to launch balloons from Alamogordo Air Force Base where they would remain aloft for 48 to 72 hours, drift with prevailing winds, and collect radioactive particles from Nevada Test Site detonations. Then Singlevich would head into the field to collect the fallen balloons. Military scientists hoped to use this technology under ‘Project Mogul’ to someday detect secret Soviet nuclear tests. But the balloons proved unreliable and too expensive, and the project only ran from 1947 to 1949.  

• Using archival sources, in 2019 Young authored a 400-page Air Force publication about the creation of the U.S. Atomic Energy Detection System, currently under review by various federal agencies. From this research, Young ‘fleshed out’ the details of an encounter said to have occurred in 1947 that led to the rumors of a UFO crash involving small aliens just outside of Roswell, New Mexico, about 100 miles from Alamogordo. But Young’s research leads him to believe the event actually happened during Operation Buster-Jangle (October-November 1951) or Operation Tumbler-Snapper (April-June 1952).

• On this occasion, Singlevich and a young Air Force pilot, Captain Jim Whidden, took a helicopter from from the Roswell Army Air Field to fly over the desert in search of a silver Project Mogul balloon that had landed atop a knoll. They landed the helicopter in a depression west of the knoll. East of the knoll lay a shallow valley, with a ranch house in the middle. The men donned radiation protective gear, including a suit, hood and respirator.

• Jim Whidden, who is today a colonel and the director of staff at the Air Force Technical Applications Center, recalled that at 5’6” Singlevich was short-statured. Wearing their bulky suits, they walked up over the rise. The rancher’s wife who lived in the ranch house was already walking towards them. Whidden says that “when she saw them, she fainted.” The two men made sure she wasn’t hurt and left her there. They gathered up the balloon and all of the equipment, took it back to the helicopter and left.”

• At the awards banquet, Colonel McBrearty quoted Singlevich as saying that the rancher’s wife “looked at us in shock, gasped and then fainted dead-way! …It was one of those, ‘What do we do now?’ moments. …We then grabbed the payload, bundled up as much of the balloon as we could gather, and ran back to the helicopter. In a few seconds, we were outta there!” Then McBrearty commented that Singlevich was only about 5′ 6” inches tall, and “when garbed in that baggy radiation suit and a full face mask respirator, he certainly would fit the descriptions of the alien space men that were subsequently reported.”

• The rancher’s wife’s identity and location remain a mystery. But in later years, Singlevich would say that the stunned woman would have passed a lie detector test while contending she had seen extraterrestrial visitors and their ship, and he would joke with his Melbourne Beach friends that he was a ‘Roswell space alien’. Singlevich died in 1992 at age 73.

• This Florida Today website article is the first time that Air Force personnel have shared this story publicly. According to the official Air Force command historian James Michael Young, the incident occurred in 1951 or 1952 and was considered classified until 2017.

• Martha DeMarre, who manages the Nuclear Testing Archive of more than 400,000 historical documents related to nuclear testing in Las Vegas, said she has never heard this story before.

• In April 2014, a new $158 million state-of-the-art AFTAC headquarters was named in Singlevich’s honor during a ribbon-cutting ceremony at Patrick Air Force Base, calling him “the most revered scientist in (the Air Force’s) rich history”. The secretive facility near Melbourne Beach, Florida monitors the globe for nuclear explosions, using a network of more than 3,600 sensors. And with regard to the enduring Roswell UFO crash story, the official command historian, Young, noted that the Air Force “very comprehensively disproved” the Roswell UFO cover-up in a 1994 report.

[Editor’s Note]   Really? This is the story that the Air Force is going with? These people are just stone cold liars. Clearly, the deep state military industrial complex intends to cover up the Roswell UFO crash perpetually. The dates don’t even match. It is beyond dispute that the crash occurred in July 1947. And Project Mogul ended in 1949. But the Air Force’s official “command historian” is now changing the year of the “alleged Roswell incident” to 1951 or 52?  Not only that, but look at the size of the Mogul balloon (above).  They want us to believe that two guys gathered it up, threw it into a helicopter and quickly left the area.  And how is it that, until now, no one ever heard about a rancher’s wife who saw an alien to begin a cottage industry around the most famous UFO incident in the world? Are we to dismiss all of the rest of the evidence and testimony? This is beyond absurd. The deep state is so accustomed to altering history with impunity, they take it for granted that they will get away with it again this time.

 

After taking off from Roswell, Walter Singlevich’s military helicopter flew across the dusty New Mexico plains to his top-secret Cold War-era target: a silvery balloon equipped to detect nuclear detonations that lay sprawled atop a knoll near a rural ranch house.

The helicopter landed nearby. Singlevich and the pilot donned bulky 1950s-era radiation protective suits — complete with hoods and respirators — and hustled up the hill.

That’s when the short-statured Singlevich may have inadvertently added a chapter to the “little green men” alien conspiracy lore that swirls around Roswell, New Mexico, where some believe a UFO crashed in 1947.

“As they came over the rise where the balloon was, they ran into this woman who was coming from the ranch house,” said Jim Whidden, Air Force Technical Applications Center director of staff.

“And when she saw them, she fainted,” Whidden said. “So they walked over and made sure that she didn’t hurt herself, and basically left her there — this was very highly classified. They picked up the balloon and all the equipment and the sample, and took it back to the helicopter and left,” he said.

AFTAC officials shared details of Singlevich’s faint-inducing encounter with FLORIDA TODAY, marking the story’s first public release. The incident occurred in 1951 or 1952 and was considered classified until 2017, said James Michael Young, AFTAC command historian.

Additional details have been lost over the decades, Young said. The woman’s identity and location remain a mystery.

Singlevich, a former Melbourne Beach resident, died in 1992 at age 73 — and in his later years, he joked that he was a Roswell space alien, Whidden said. He told friends that the stunned woman could have passed a lie detector test while contending she had seen extraterrestrial visitors and their ship.

Martha DeMarre, who manages the Nuclear Testing Archive, said she had never heard the story before. Based in Las Vegas, the archive preserves more than 400,000 historical documents related to nuclear testing.

Beth Wiegand is a spokeswoman at the International UFO Museum & Research Center in Roswell, New Mexico. She said she was not surprised that the startled woman fainted nearly 70 years ago — considering she “may have encountered something that would appear to be a combination of Darth Vader and the Pillsbury Doughboy.”

US Army Major ‘Hid Debris From Roswell UFO Crash in His Water Heater After Government Tried to Cover it Up’

 

Article by Emma Parry                         February 5, 2020                        (thesun.co.uk)

• In July 1947, a “flying disk” crash landed in the desert near Roswell, New Mexico. Military troops moved into the area to investigate and recover debris from the crash site. Major Jesse Marcel, an intelligence officer for the 509th Bomb Group at the Roswell Army Air Field, was the first military man at the site. Specialist teams were brought in to remove the wreckage. It is claimed by some that several dead alien bodies were also recovered and flown to Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio for further study.

• Calvin Parker was 19 years old when he had his own close encounter with a UFO in Pascagoula, Mississippi in October 1973. Parker was fishing on the banks of the Pascagoula River with his pal Charlie Hickson when a UFO landed nearby. Strange creatures with lobster-like claws emerged from the craft, grabbed the two men and dragged them onboard their craft. Being kindred spirits by each having an extraordinary UFO experience, a mutual friend set up three separate meetings between Parker and Marcel in the early 1980s.

• Parker says that Marcel told him “straight up” that a UFO had crashed at Roswell and the US government tried to cover it up. According to Parker, “At first [Marcel] said he was allowed to talk about what had happened but later was told not to say a word in fear that the Russian’s might find out.” “He told me that he was ordered to say that it was just a weather balloon that had crashed, and being a good soldier he carried out those orders.” “He claimed that the government gave out fake information of where the UFO crash site was so that no one would know where it actually happened.”

• At first, the military said that the crashed object was a weather balloon, and later the Air Force claimed it was a downed high-altitude spy balloon from a top secret operation called Project Mogul, to detect Soviet atomic bomb tests. Marcel said he was forced to hold pieces of a weather balloon at a press conference to help debunk the UFO crash story. (see featured image above)

• Major Marcel was very sick at the time of the meetings. He told Parker that, being the first to arrive on the scene at Roswell, he recovered three strange pieces of metal from the crash site. The strange material Marcel found was a kind of lightweight metal that would spring back into shape after being crumpled. He told Parker “[I]t wasn’t anything of this world.” He secretly took the three pieces of the pliable metal material home to show his son, Jesse Jr.

• According to UFO investigator Philip Mantle, Major Marcel’s son, Dr Jesse Marcel Jr, remembers handling the alien material in 1947. But he never saw the material again after that night. Parker and another witness who was interviewed by Mantle say that Marcel confided to them that he had hidden the three pieces of alien material in a hot water heater at his home in Houma, Louisiana. Recalled Parker, “They were hidden in the top of his hot water heater in his house. All you had to do was to undo the top two screws on the water heater and remove the lid.” Unfortunately, Marcel passed away in 1986 before Parker had chance to see him again or check the water heater. “Could the three pieces of UFO debris still be there?” wonders Parker. “Well the house is (still there).”

 

Major Jesse Marcel, who was the first officer on the scene after a “flying disk” crash landed in New Mexico, took material home from the crash site in July 1947 and kept it in his house, according to British investigator Philip Mantle.

Marcel was dispatched by Roswell Army Air Field, where he worked as an intelligence officer for the

509th Bomb Group, to investigate the crash and recovered pieces of the strange material from the desert.

Specialist teams were brought in to clear the wreckage and, it is claimed by some, several dead alien bodies who were flown to Wright Patterson Airforce Base, Ohio, for further study.

The US Air Force said later the object was a downed high-altitude spy balloon from a top secret operation called Project Mogul, which listened out for Soviet atomic bomb

tests.

However, before his death in 1986, Major Marcel admitted there had been a cover-up – and that he was forced to hold pieces of a weather balloon at a press conference to debunk the UFO crash story.

Until now it was not known what happened to the strange material he found at the site – a kind of metal which would spring back into shape after being crumpled – and which he said he took home to show his son, Jesse Jr.

But a witness has told UFO investigator Philip Mantle that the major confided in him that he kept three pieces of the UFO in a hot water heater at his home in Houma, Louisiana.

A Look Into the UFO Incident at Aztec, New Mexico

Listen to “E148 A Look Into the UFO Incident at Aztec, New Mexico” on Spreaker.
Article by O. C. Stonestreet                    October 20, 2019                   (statesville.com)

• Scott Ramsey, wife Suzanne Ramsey and Frank Thayer, Ph.D., a professor emeritus at New Mexico State University, are the authors of The Aztec UFO Incident (2015). (This book follows their 2011 book, The Aztec Incident: Recovery at Hart Canyon.) They have done so much research and uncovered so much information that they plan to publish a third book on Aztec as well.

• The Aztec UFO Incident occurred in March 1948 near Aztec, New Mexico, in the northwest corner of New Mexico in the “Four Corners”area. Suzanne Ramsey grew up near Aztec, and she and her husband have spent 32 years researching, interviewing, finding new leads, and collecting documentation on the UFO landing. The story includes pre-incident sightings, physical evidence, the scientists who worked on the craft, and the cover-up. Their conclusions are provocative. They write: “[P]eople in general are unwilling to consider the enormity of the implications the facts would force them to face.”

• The Aztec UFO Incident, involved the discovery of an intact, 100 feet in diameter saucer-shaped craft atop a mesa in New Mexico, just eight months and some 370 miles from the better-known crash of a saucer at Roswell, New Mexico, in early July 1947. A number of local people were at the scene before the U.S. military arrived. The military scoured the craft, even going inside of it, before they ran off the locals warning them to keep quiet about what they had seen.

• Thayer and the Ramseys write: “The witnesses were all 100 percent certain that what they saw that day was not a conventional aircraft, nor was it a prototype Air Force design that strayed off course and crashed on the high plains of New Mexico. Based on clear witness memories, there is no doubt that they saw a landed flying saucer from origins unknown.”

 

“A strange object drifting southwestward through the sky has scores of North and South Carolinians agog today. The object, on which descriptions varied, was first spotted at Fayetteville … at about 4:30 p.m. yesterday. … Except for its shape and the scores who witnessed it, the reports were reminiscent of the myriad tales of flying saucers current since the war …” — “Strange Object Floats Across the Carolinas,” The Landmark, Dec. 29, 1949, Page 1.

 

Scott and Suzanne Ramsey, and Frank Thayer

Scott and Suzanne Ramsey live a little east of Mooresville, just inside Rowan County. I have written about them before. You may recall that Scott is the “Uncle Scott” in “Uncle Scott’s Root Beer,” a non-alcoholic beverage he and Suzanne formulated and began marketing a few years ago. Their beverage can be purchased at local Food Lion grocery stores and other venues.

When I met them at their home back in 2017, it was to talk about their root beer. As interesting and delicious as that subject was, while talking to them I found out that they were also the authors of a book about a UFO (read “flying saucer”) incident that happened in March 1948 near the small town of Aztec, New Mexico. I did not mention the book in my column on the Ramseys that ran in the June 4, 2017, R&L, as I wanted to focus my readers’ attention on their drink.

As far back as I can remember, I have been interested in aircraft and science, including science fiction. When I was 12, I began reading everything I could find about UFOs or flying saucers and even did a science-fair project in junior high on that subject; I won the third-place award. I have continued to be interested in the topic and have done several columns about local sightings of these mysterious objects in our skies.

Now that I have gotten around to reading their 317-page paperback book, I wanted to share their work with my readers. “The Aztec UFO Incident,” as it is called, involved the (supposed?) discovery of a saucer-shaped craft, measuring approximately 100 feet in diameter, atop a mesa in New Mexico, just eight months and some 370 miles as the B-29 flies from the better-known (supposed?) crash of a saucer at Roswell, New Mexico, in early July 1947. The full title of the Ramseys’ book is “The Aztec UFO Incident: The Case, Evidence and Elaborate Cover-Up of One of the Most Perplexing Crashes in History,” which gives a straight, upfront summary of the book.
