Crash at Corona : the U.S. military retrieval and cover-up of a UFO by Stanton T Friedman( Book )

11 editions published between 1992 and 2010 in English and held by 568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On July 8, 1947, the Public Information Office at the Roswell Army Air Field released a statement that said the remains of a "flying disc" had been recovered from a ranch near Corona, New Mexico. The story was released to the wire services and appeared in the evening editions of newspapers across the country. Within hours, however, this story was replaced by the Pentagon's official account that the disc was simply the misidentified radar reflector from a downed weather balloon. And so began the government's successful forty-year conspiracy to conceal the truth. The wreckage, consisting of I-beams with unrecognizable symbols and ultralight, indestructible foil, metal, and plasticlike material, thoroughly baffled the experienced airmen and intelligence officers who examined it. The military immediately quarantined the crash site, gathered every scrap of the debris, and flew much of it to the U.S. Eighth Air Force Headquarters where it disappeared from the public eye. In his determined, decade-long search for the truth behind this crash, Stanton Friedman has interviewed over 100 witnesses, including those who claim first-hand experiences with the spacecraft's remnants. Here are the remarkable accounts of Mac Brazel, the rancher who discovered the crash; Major Jesse Marcel of the 509th Bomb Group sent to collect the debris; and other high ranking Air Force officers, scientists, and officials who examined the wreckage or prepared it for shipment. Here, as well, is the statement of Glenn Dennis, the Roswell mortician whose friend, a nurse, described the small humanoid bodies autopsied at the base hospital, and the exclusive testimony of Gerald Anderson, who recalls seeing the crashed disc and its occupants at a second crash site 150 miles west in the Plains of San Augustin. Together, these previously untold stories present the true account of a singular event in world history. Crash at Corona also details the government's secret investigation and coverup of this incident - from the official silencing of military personnel and intimidation of civilian witnesses to the disinformation campaigns and staged investigations like Projects Sign and Bluebook - and provides new information on the original members of Majestic-12, the supersecret group of scientists, the military, and intelligence personnel allegedly assigned to study this Crash and other UFO phenomena for the president. Complete with the corroborating testimony of dozens of witnesses, shocking revelations of government duplicity, and photos of the key people and places involved, Crash at Corona is the most thorough and up-to-date examination of America's best-documented UFO encounter"--Dust jacket
