AZTEC — The tall tale has it that 60 years ago this month, a UFO crashed in Hart Canyon, north of Aztec. Supposedly there were charred alien bodies aboard the craft, which was knocked out of the sky by a radar beam.
The Aztec Library began telling this story 11 years ago to raise money for a new building. With the story came national attention and the start of an annual UFO symposium...
...The symposium began humbly with the work of Leanne Hathcock, librarian, and Scott Ramsey, a UFO investigator from North Carolina. Ramsey became a patron and assisted in finding reputable speakers.
"We've always been blessed with really good speakers, but this year is really exceptional," Ramsey said.....

AZTEC — Legends sometimes are born from facts; other times they come from hope or fear.
Either way, legends prevail when people listen with open minds.
An open mind is all organizers of the 11th Aztec UFO Symposium asked Saturday from the dozens of participants who flooded into the Masonic Lodge.
The symposium, near the alleged UFO crash in Hart Canyon north of Aztec, attracts believers and skeptics from across the country, each looking for evidence of alien life...
...It is that paper trail that most interests researcher Scott Ramsey. Ramsey has a stack of more than 7,500 documents obtained from the government, but most of the information was blacked out before the documents were released.
"According to the FBI, the government had no interest in the crash," Ramsey said. "If that's true, why did they spend more than five years investigating it? And why were the FBI, CIA and the Air Force all looking at it and trying to keep it hidden?"......
On March 25, 1948 a UFO spacecraft of extraterrestrial origin crashed in a place called Aztec, New Mexico. 16 alien bodies were discovered dead inside. The alien bodies and all evidence of their spacecraft were soon transported by government officials to Wright Patterson Air force Base where all traces of this event disappeared in secrecy. This program documents the shocking facts around this disturbing mystery and includes interviews with leading UFO researchers, a walking tour of the crash site, a tour of the secret US radar station that tracked the UFO crash and the story of an intensive government investigation into alien biology and space technology.

Hi, my name is Shawna and I just happened to run across your page. I thought you may be of interest to my story. I don't know if you have read Frank Scully's "Behind the Flying Saucers", written in 1950, but my grandfather, Clayton J. Boddy is mentioned in it. I live in a small town called Farmington in New Mexico. My grandfather used to tell em stories about when he lived here. He worked for The Daily Times, our local newspaper. He was a very well respected businessman and people thought of him with great fondness. He was out one morning walking on Main St. with a friend and looked up to see thousands of "UFO's". This was to become known as the "UFO Armada." I never doubted my grandfather one bit, but he quit talking about it soon after because he didn't want people to think him crazy. But before he decided to stop talking, he was going to be on a radio show speaking of his sighting. He receieved a telephone call from the Pentagon before he had the chance to go on the air. He was told that "it would be wise to keep his mouth shut about what he saw". I always find this a very interesting thing. Just wanted to share it with you. Thanks

As I mentioned here in an earlier post, I was recently interviewed for a new edition of Frank Scully's old-time UFO book, Behind the Flying Saucers, which was the first title to address the controversy surrounding the alleged UFO crash at Aztec, New Mexico in 1948.
....here's what Tim Green Beckley (who is republishing the book) has to say about it:
"The CONSPIRACY JOURNAL is very proud to offer this expanded version of perhaps the most seminal book in the history of the unexplained . . . a case that now stands right beside the UFO crash at Roswell, MN for its credibility and veracity. For years the Aztec case was spurned by serious researchers who did not have access to all the information now available on the crash. . . In addition to reprinting the entire, unabridged, text to the rare 50s Scully book (reset in an easy to read, 'large print,' large format edition) journalist Sean Casteel has dug deep to provide the reader with an updated account of what really happened outside this isolated desert town near the Four Corners. His up to date research on Aztec includes material supplied by such outstanding researchers as NICK REDFERN STANTON FRIEDMAN ART CAMPBELL SCOTT and SUZANNE RAMSEY. Tim Beckley Conspiracy Journal.
Tim continues: "AN IMPORTANT RE-EXAMINATION OF AN HISTORICAL UFO CASE! - - - Were 16 alien bodies recovered from a dome-shaped device that crashed near the town of Aztec, New Mexico circa 1948? . . . Why does the FBI continue to withhold 200 pages of classified material on the case for alleged 'national security reasons?' . . . Was the incident covered up with a camouflaged 'front story' presided over by con men and scam artists, who were perhaps in the governments 'back pocket?' . . . Did President Eisenhower make contact with aliens around the same time, thus adding weight to this and other UFO crash cases?........................

Scott and Suzanne Ramsey, authors, were brought together by the Aztec Incident. Scott started his quest in the 1980's, initially believing he would be able to prove it either fact or fiction within six months. Almost 25 years later, the couple presents to the public their findings about the 1948 disc recovery. Since their marriage, the Ramsey's have traveled to 26 states, gathering documentation, interviewing witnesses and searching archives for secrets relating to Aztec. Scott's 30 years in the electrical magnetic industry and Suzanne's background in media have led them to explore areas previously uncovered, including 55,000 plus related documents. The entire focus of their research has been a dedication to documenting history using facts. What they prove in this book changes history.
Mooresville couple's book about the 'Aztec Incident' is the culimination of 25 years of research and healthy skepticism
In the early morning desert haze of March 25, 1948, just eight months after an alleged UFO crash in Roswell, N.M., two employees of El Paso Oil Company came upon a brush fire on Hart Canyon Road, 12 miles northeast of Aztec, N.M., near a company drip tank.
When they arrived on the scene, something much more than flames greeted them. Upon the rocky hills sat a large, metallic, circular aircraft with no apparent seams, rivets, bolts or welds holding it together.
Scott and Suzanne Ramsey of Mooresville have put 25 years' worth of research into uncovering the mystery of the Aztec Incident, a discredited UFO crash in Aztec, N.M. In their new book, they attempt to dispel myths about the alleged crash and uncover what they say the federal government and the military are hiding from the public about the incident.
The craft appeared to be about 100 feet in diameter, and a shattered porthole was its only sign of damage. As a small crowd began to form around the scene, one man managed to open a door to its interior, revealing two thoroughly scorched small bodies slumped in their seats. Within minutes, military personnel arrived at the scene and began to question everyone in the general vicinity, swearing them to absolute secrecy as they prepared to move the craft to a secure location.
No one would hear much about this incredible occurrence until two years later when Frank Scully (who would later be the namesake for the the character of FBI agent Dana Scully in the televison show, The X Files), a columnist for the entertainment newspaper Variety, published Behind the Flying Saucers, a book that has sold more than 64,000 copies. He claimed the story came to him from Silas Newton, a wealthy oil man, and a mysterious "Dr. Gee," allegedly one of the scientists the military enlisted to help uncover how the craft had flown and who , or what, had piloted it.
Yet J.P. Cahn, a journalist for the San Francisco Chronicle, followed up this book with two exposés in True Magazine in 1952....'
Aztec, NM. 1948. Silas Newton relates the crash of a UFO with humanoids. This is most likely a complete hoax as current research seems to indicate. Silas Newton's background is certainly not sterling. 24:00
