The Roswell Incident Essay

1604 words - 7 pages

     The people of the world have always had a mysterious belief that Earth wasn't the only
planet in the universe that supported life. This belief dates back to ancient times when heavenly
and demonic stories were told of gods who strode across the skies on their golden chariots. Tales
as far fetched as Zeus who threw lightening bolts from his fingertips to stories as credible as the
American Indian's Cachinas, who supposedly taught them to farm and saved them from numerous
disasters. The Egyptians, who built their mammoth pyramids with only the use of man power,
used hieroglyphics. These same hieroglyphics have been unofficially documented as being similar

The debris was initially taken to
Roswell Army Air Field and eventually flown to Wright Field in Dayton, Ohio (Jeffrey). Before
the military could intervene, the event had already been witnessed by more than one-hundred
people. Local police, fire squad, and curious members of the Roswell community make up these
people. A lot of them were part of the initial recovery team and are now telling their stories that
have been bottled up for nearly a half of a century (Randal 11).
     According to one unnamed witness of the Roswell recovery team,
               The crash site was littered with pieces of the aircraft. Something about the
          size of a fighter plane had crashed, the metal was unlike anything I'd ever seen
          before. I picked up a piece the size of a car fender with one hand, it couldn't have
          weighed more than a quarter of a pound and no matter how hard I tried I couldn't
          even get it to bend (Randal 11).
This statement describes the type of material that was found at the site and has been described in
this manner by numerous witnesses. The next statement was made by Curry Holden, an
archeologist who was one of the first to arrive on the scene, "I saw a crashed airplane without
wings and with a fat fuselage. There were three bodies. Two were outside the craft and the other
one was still inside, visible through a gash in the fuselage" (Walker 38). Other bits of information
have also been documented from locals arriving initially at the scene. First, there is the local
undertaker, Glenn Dennis, who was asked by the base if he could provide child-sized coffins.
Then there was the local fireman, Dan Dwyer, whose crew was called out to the crash site and
who collected some of the mysterious metal debris. He told his family of also seeing two body
bags and one still living being about the size of a 10-year-old child (Walker 38). So many stories
are now being told, that it is hard to distinguish which ones are probable, but because of the
amount of information now coming out, it is very likely that something out of this world did take
place in Roswell, New Mexico, fifty years ago.
      There are two soundless films showing the autopsy of one of the beings, known as the
gray variety ("UFO Crash"), found at the Roswell crash scene. One is eighteen minutes long and
takes place in some kind of operating room. The other is three minutes long and was shot inside a
tent in the half-light of emergency lanterns. Both of these videos were supposedly taken by an Air
Force film technician at Roswell and at the autopsy center in Fort Worth. This cameraman is still
undercover, but sold...
