This is the original announcement of the famed Roswell, New Mexico, crashed disc, made by ABC Network Radio news anchor Taylor Grant on July 8, 1947. This first public announcement that the US government had recovered a crashed flying saucer was covered up by the Army Air Force and successfully kept the lid on the so-called Roswell Incident until 1978 - 31 years later - when former military personnel involved in the recovery began to speak openly to UFO researchers.
"Like you were there"
Travel back in time to 1966 with this historical UFO recording - a radio news special program on UFOs, featuring comments by Donald Keyhoe, J. Allen Hynek, Al Chop (USAF), James Moseley, and Willliam Coleman (USAF). Eye-witness and news accounts discussed include the Washington, DC, radar case; the 1952, McMinville, Oregon, case; and the Exeter, New Hampshire sightings. Keyhoe also describes an aircraft case investigated by a secret government agency.
This dramatic program provides an overview of the state of UFO research in the 1960s. The UFO attack on Washington, DC, in August of 1952 became known as "The Summer of the Saucers" when numerous UFOs were seen - and many tracked on radar - for several weeks over the United States capitol. They repeatedly violated restricted airspace, including flying near and/or over the White House and the Capitol Building at rates of speed in excess of 7,000 miles an hour!
