    Where's the alternative "experimental aircraft with crash test dummies"?

    It was a flying saucer! If a Major in USAAF Intelligence believed it, I don't know why I can't.

    It was a weather balloon. They declassified most of the documents in 1999, and the photos show it's clearly not a UFO.

    A UFO. A weather balloon would not have warrented so much secrecy.

    What about a fugo? If the Japanese were still sending over bomb balloons or one stayed up for a couple of years after the war?

    I don't really believe it, but it fits: the language strange to ordinary New Mexicans, the secrecy, the wreckage...

    "A UFO. A weather balloon would not have warrented so much secrecy."

    'They' don't want you to know that 'they' can almost 'predict' the 'weahter'.

    Actually, if a UFO crashed, then the Army would probably mess up covering it up. It might've been a crashed swamp gas cloud, or a stealth bomber, or a disco ball.

    I don't know what it was, but out of those a UFO. I think it was something more than a weather balloon because I saw this special on tv on it and this lady disapeared right after the crash who supposivly knew something about it. I don't know what it was but I think that the government is covering something up.

    Yeah, and if there's one thing I've learned in life it's always trust TV specials. :p

    A UFO. Aliens were inspecting us because our technology was growing maybe they viewed us as a threat.

    Depending on who you believe, a UFO crashed in the desert, the alien bodies were removed and the ship and aliens were taken and stashed at Area 51, near Roswell, New Mexico. For years the government kept quiet about it, denying the existence of the base, even though you could walk right up to the fence around it.

    That, or a weather baloon crashed, as the Government claims.

    Well something crashed there and I haven't heard of a weather balloon 'crashing' - how can it crash?
