Government Records:  Results of a Search for Records
Concerning the 1947 Crash Near Roswell, New Mexico

United States General Accounting Office
National Security and International Affairs Division
Report to the Honorable Steven H. Schiff, House of Representatives


On 8 July 1947, the Roswell Army Air Field public information office in Roswell, New Mexico, reported the crash and recovery of a "flying disc."  Army Air Forces personnel from the 509th Bomb Group were credited with the recovery. 

The following day, the press reported that the Commanding General of the U.S. Eighth Air Force, Fort Worth, Texas, announced that Roswell personnel had recovered a crashed radar-tracking (weather) balloon, not a "flying saucer."

After nearly 50 years, speculation continues on what crashed at Roswell.  Some observers believe that the object was of extraterrestrial origin. 

In the 1994 Report of Air Force Research Regarding the Roswell Incident, the Air Force did not dispute that something happened near Roswell, but reported that the most likely source of the wreckage was from a balloon-launched classified government project designed to determine the state of Soviet nuclear weapons research.

The debate on what crashed at Roswell continues.

Concerned that the Department of Defense was not providing all available information on the crash, the late U.S. Congressman from New Mexico, The Honorable Steven H. Schiff, demanded a new, detailed investigation.  Schiff pushed the GAO to search for all government records concerning the Roswell crash.

This official report--by the Director of National Security Analysis--is considered the most complete ever made by the U.S. Government on this case.  It examines a wide range of classified documents dating from July 1947 through the 1950s.  These records came from numerous organizations in New Mexico and elsewhere throughout the Department of Defense, as well as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), and the National Security Council.


"Locations Visited and Records Reviewed"

The report describes the full scope and methodology of the investigation.  It covers many air accident reports and crashes, and tells how some government records covering Roswell activities had been destroyed.  It contains the bizarre, classified FBI teletype message of 8 July 1947, along with many other interesting documents and letters.  The document also tells about other government records previously withheld from the public because of security classification, and the Air Force's analysis of unidentified flying object (UFO) sightings from 1946 to 1943.


FBI Teletype: 8 July 1947

This investigation studied microfilm records, records of military units assigned to Roswell in 1947, microfilm abstracts of FBI office activities, Air Materiel Command records, etc etc.  You will read details about the FBI report of a "hexagonal-shaped disc" that was sent to Wright Field for examination. 

It includes copies of important letters from the National Security Council, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, the Department of Energy, the CIA, the Department of Defense, and the FBI.


CIA Letter

It's interesting to note that this key report states "our search was complicated by the fact that some records we wanted to review were missing and there was not always an explanation."

This is an important book for every UFO, "flying saucer," and "Roswell Incident" investigator, historian, and enthusiast.  Hard to find and now out-of-print, this 20-page report is quality bound, for a key place in your library or research files.  11" x 8-1/2" size.  $16.95
