1947 UFO flapEdit
Maury Island incident. On June 21 1947, Fred Crisman and Harold Dahl were off the port of Maury Island, Washington when they reported having witnessed ‘six doughnut-shaped objects in the sky’. One of the objects dropped a substance that resembled "white metal"’. Pieces had fallen onto their boat, breaking a worker's arm, and slicing their dog dead.
The information was relayed to Kenneth Arnold, who contacted an Air Force intelligence officer to report the incident. Two officers flew in from California to investigate, but concluded that the metal objects were “aluminum” and not of interest. The officers then died in a car crash on their way back to California.
Kenneth Arnold UFO sighting. On June 24 1947, private pilot Kenneth Arnold reported seeing nine, shiny unidentified flying objects flying past Mount Rainier at speeds that Arnold estimated at a minimum of 1,200 miles an hour (1,932 km/hr).
William Brazel, a foreman working on the J.B. Foster ranch, noticed clusters of debris approximately 30 miles (50 km) north of Roswell, New Mexico. Official records say that Brazel found the debris in early July, but the Roswell Daily Record reported that he had seen the debri as early as mid June.
Brazel told the Roswell Daily Record that he and his son saw a "large area of bright wreckage", but paid little attention to it. He later returned though, perhaps on July 4th, with his son, wife and daughter to gather up the material. Some accounts give Brazel as having gathered some of the material even earlier, rolling it together and stashing it under some brush.
The Roswell Army Air Field (RAAF) was notified on July 6th. Major Jesse Marcel, Lt Colonel Sheridan Cavitt and Master Sergeant Bill Rickett arrived to the ranch where more pieces were picked up. "[We] spent a couple of hours Monday afternoon [July 7] looking for any more parts of the weather device", said Marce. Marcel later revealed that the materiel recovered was "nothing made on this earth." The Brazels also remarked that the materiel Marcel recovered had super-strength not associated with a weather balloon.
On July 8, 1947, RAAF public information officer Walter Haut issued a press release stating that personnel from the field's 509th Operations Group had recovered a "flying disc", only to recant its description the next day as being a “weather balloon”. Brazel firmly contested such notion in the same article.
Colonel William H. Blanchard, commanding officer of the 509th, contacted General Roger M. Ramey of the Eighth Air Force in Fort Worth, Texas, and Ramey ordered the object be flown to Fort Worth Army Air Field.
Marcel interview 1978Edit
Stanton Freedman interviewed Jesse Marcel in 1978, who recounted details about the debris found at the Foster ranch. Marcel believed the true nature of the debris was being suppressed by the military. His accounts were featured in the documentary UFOs are Real (1979) and in a February 1980 National Enquirer article. Marcel said that the debris site had small beams, approximately 0.375–0.5 square inches (2.42–3.2 cm2), covered in undecipherable hieroglyphics.
Marcel recalled that the beams were extremely dense and unable to burn. Marcel's son, Jesse Jr., saw the debris. Marcel went home and showed the debris to his family. Jesse Jr. labeled the debris into three categories: a metallic gray, foil-like substance; plastic-like material that was similar to Bakelite and brownish-black in color; and I-beams that contained purple hieroglyphics.
Space programs Edit
Several civilians and families in Roswell, New Mexico, such as Mac Brazel, claimed to have possessed some of the Roswell material at one point. The material was claimed to be impervious to burns, tearing, or destruction. In some instances, it would bend back to its original form, if crumpled. Jesse Marcel and his son Jesse Jr., claimed to have handled such material.
According to geologist Frank Kimbler, the ‘Roswell material’ that littered the debris-area from the Roswell UFO incident, was an aluminum aerospace alloy. The US military confiscated as much of the materiel as they could find, and scrubbed all sites. However, Kimbler claims that he was able to aquire small samples of the Roswell aluminum.
Since Thursday, July 2nd, 2018 the ‘Brazel field’, which is about 75 miles out from Downtown, was made officially open to the public. Kimbler had combed the physical area where evidence was revealed of military presence, which can be dated to the late 1940s. Professional analysis of Google Earth's aerial imaging also shows visible indications that the crash-site was in fact "scrubbed".
What little remains of the alloy pieces that he was able to acquire, Kimbler had analyzed by New Mexico Tech. The results, was that the alloy is rated as a 6000 series aluminum which is typically used in aerospace technology.
Kimbler had also submitted alloy samples to EAG Labs (Evans Analytics Group) for magnesium isotope testing. The first alloy samples tested, done from their spectrometer equipment, gave the results of being at the edge of analytical error. The overall results give a strong indication of non-terrestrial origin, however a stronger spectrometer is required, to give a more exact reading outside of Earth's terrestrial sphere.
Kimbler’s investigative work has caught the attention of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), who has demanded of him to appear at a BLM facility, and bring his samples in for a review.
Leap into spaceEdit
By the 1930s, aluminium was widely used in aviation, shipbuilding and automotive industries, starting its progress in civil engineering. The Empire State Building, which was the highest building worldwide until 1970, was built in 1931. It was the first building where aluminium was widely employed in construction, both in the basic structures and in the interior.
World War II changed the complexion of the basic aluminium market bringing aviation and the manufacture of tank and automotive engines to the forefront. The war pushed the countries fighting Germany to increase the use of their aluminium production capacities. Designs of aircraft were improved and the new aluminium alloys were developed with them.
The human race “took a leap into space” a decade later after the ‘Roswell incident’. The use of aluminium was critical and therefore triggered the aerospace industry to become one of the key spheres. In 1957, the USSR launched the first artificial satellite into orbit. The satellites hull consisted of two separate aluminium semi-spheres joined together. All subsequent space vehicles were produced using aluminium.
One of the earliest mentions of a “treaty” or “agreement” with an ‘alien presence’ is the Lt Gen interview 1989 transcript, dated July 14, 1989.

- agreements with the aliens in exchange for technology and
- so-called recon missions during times of human conflict.”
