Author Frank Scully in 1950 released the now infamous book ‘Behind the Flying Saucers’, in which he reported 4 UFO crash retrieval incidents. (Most of these are now widely believed to be unreliable). The Aztec UFO crash incident occurred near Aztec, New Mexico, 1948. Most of Scully’s information came from a ‘Dr. Gee’, who was in fact a composite of 8 different people from whom Scully had obtained his information.
Scully claimed, that the disc that landed near Aztec was 99.99 feet in diameter. Also that its exterior was made of a light metal resembling aluminum. However, the metal appeared to be so durable that no amount of heat or diamond drilling had any effect. The disc apparently incorporated large rings of metal. These rings revolved around a central stabilized cabin. They used an unfamiliar gear ratio. There were no rivets, bolts, screws or signs of welding. Investigators were eventually able to gain access to the craft. They pushed a knob with a long pole through a porthole which caused a hidden door to open.
Scully’s informant also stated that 16 small humanoids, ranging in height from 36 to 42 inches, were found dead inside the cabin, their bodies charred to a dark brown color. Scully was told that the craft was undamaged, having landed under its own guidance. The craft was found to be assembled in segments using a complex system of grooves and pins. The craft and bodies were then apparently flown to Wright Patterson AFB.
In 1987 William Steinman found some further evidence to support Scully’s claim about the Aztec UFO crash but again he refused to divulge his source. Steinman stated that the crash occurred on 25th March and was detected by 3 separate radar centers. The radar apparently caused the craft to crash. Steinman’s version, however, stated that only 14 humanoid bodies were recovered and not 16 as Scully had claimed. Without further proof this incident is likely to remain just a ‘possible’ crash retrieval case.
