This week I interviewed Robert Koford who has visited here frequently, commenting on various aspects of the UFO phenomenon. This discussion was inspired by his investigation into the Aztec UFO crash claim from March 25, 1948. This story has
been around publicly much longer than the Roswell case but has far fewer
witnesses and virtually no documentation to substantiate the crash. In fact,
unlike Roswell where everyone agrees that something fell, with Aztec there are many
members of the community who deny that anything happened. You can listen to the
Bob bases his interest on a series of documents that suggest that General Carl Spaatz issued orders about an event on March 25. Although it seems to related to “flying discs”, one of the names given to the flying saucers, there is nothing to tie it to Aztec and apparently no one seems to know what triggered Spaatz’s response. You can see the documents and some of Bob’s arguments at his website found here:
As I mentioned on the show, I have addressed the Aztec crash on a number of occasions on this blog. For those of you interested in reading the background about the case, you can find it here:
And for those who would like to hear what Monte Shriver has to say about the crash, I interviewed him on the radio show/podcast. You can listen to it here:
And for those who worry about not providing Scott Ramsey with the opportunity to refute many of these points, I will note that I have invited him on the program several of times. He had refused all those opportunities. I have no plans to invite him again.
I hope that all this provides enough information for those interested in the Aztec case to make some sort of intelligent decision about the reality of this crash. Just for the record, I have copies of Steinman’s book UFO Crash at Aztec, and, of course Ramsey’s book, not to mention a variety of other magazine articles about it, including Coral Lorenzen’s investigation in the mid-1970s reported in The APRO Bulletin.
Next week, I’ll be talking with Michael Hall about his UFO experiences and his UFOiTeam. If you have questions, send them as a comment here and I’ll get to them during the show.
