On July 8, 1947, the Roswell Army Air Field issued a press release stating that personnel from the field’s 509th Bomb Group had recovered a crashed “flying disc” from a nearby ranch. Later that same day, the Commanding General of the Eighth Air Force recanted the earlier announcement, stating that, in fact, a weather balloon had been recovered by the airfield personnel. Debris from the crashed object was displayed at a subsequent press conference, apparently confirming the weather balloon version of the story. Although the event was quickly forgotten by news agencies, the questions lingered – Why would the U.S. military announce something of such global importance if there was any chance of error? And, didn’t members of the Air Force recognize one of their own weather balloons when they saw it? This television program picks up the story reporters hastily dropped more than 60 years ago and the possibility of whether bodies of alien beings were recovered, autopsied, and even filmed following the Roswell crash. Could this be the most shocking government cover-up of the 20th century?
