During the summer of 1974, significant
events were taking place. On August
5th, Congress placed a monetary limit
on aid to the military in Vietnam.
On August 8th, the scandal-ridden
Nixon presidency ended with Richard
Nixon offering his resignation. On
August 9th, he resigned and Gerald
Ford became the 38th President of
the United States. On August 15th,
the First Lady of South Korea was
killed in an assignation attempt on
her husband, President Park Chung
Hee. On the night of August 25th,
an event of cataclysmic proportions
occurred that few were aware of then.
A UFO crashed in Mexico, resulting
in the deaths of the Mexican soldiers
who attempted to retrieve it.
So much in the study of UFOs (Ufology)
and Alien Abductees (Abductology)
is forced, by the nature of the beast,
to rely on the stories of eyewitness
accounts. This can be a very good
thing or a very bad thing, depending
on the credibility of the account,
the witness, and if the story can
be corroborated by additional witnesses.
Mass daylight sightings by scores
of people seem to offer the most credibility.
These mass-sighting events cannot
be so easily debunked although the
"mass hallucination" label is resorted
to when the absurd explanations that
the observers saw the planet Venus,
swamp gas, or weather balloons won't
work for the ever-insulting-our-intelligence
This event took place in a little
Mexican town not too far from the
Mexican-American border. It is in
the State of Chihuahua in an area
where many Mexican hunting enthusiasts
love to hunt deer. The town is in
the northern part of the state. It
is so remote that it is not recorded
on some maps. The town has about 2,500
people and has been described as a
calm and peaceful place in which to
live. It has no city archives, no
one records history, but as in the
days of old, oral tradition still
reigns as the source of information.
Realizing this and the bias involved,
I believe it is still a story worth
On the night of August 25, 1974,
the United State's Air System detected
an object at 75,000 feet over the
Gulf of Mexico and coming in at 2,500
miles per hour. It was believed that
at this course and speed, it would
come into U.S. Airspace somewhere
over Texas. As the U.S. authorities
tracked this object, it began "stepping
down." This sort of maneuver marks
a tracked object as something intelligently
controlled rather than being some
natural phenomena like a meteor. Whereas
a meteor would have a somewhat curved
trajectory, the tracked object leveled
off first at 45,000 feet, then at
20,000 feet, staying at each stepped-down
level for five minutes and slowing
down to 1,900 miles per hour. The
slowing down of the object, the "stepping
down" in the altitude, and the ultimate
turning from entering Texas and into
Mexico was a sign of an intelligently-controlled
The U.S. authorities continued tracking
the object until it went below the
radar's range capacity. It was believed
the craft either crashed or landed
somewhere in the interior of Mexico
in the State of Chihuahua.
Almost an hour after losing radar
contact with the craft, another report
came in of a downed civilian plane
that had originated from El Paso,
Texas, and was headed to Mexico City.
The flight path apparently, according
to the story, intersected with the
path of the strange craft inbound
from over the Gulf of Mexico.
Hours later, the Mexican government
issued a military response to find
the downed civilian aircraft. They
indeed found it in the Chihuahua desert.
However, about two miles from the
destroyed small prop plane was another
aircraft that didn't look as though
it had terrestrial origins. The soldiers,
it is alleged, found a slightly damaged
disc-shaped craft. They radioed this
information to their commanders, whereupon
an order was issued for radio silence.
However, someone was listening.
The ever-noisy eavesdroppers of the
Western World, the CIA, were having
a little listen to the communications
between the Mexican field soldiers
and their field command.
The U.S. scrambled a military response
team and issued their usual and typical,
This, in CIA lingo really means, "Oh-Can't-We-Come-And-Take-Total-Control"
The Mexican military, with no experience
in recovering downed spaceships, refused
the U.S. offer. Perhaps they ended
up wishing they had since the U.S.
had a clandestine reputation of dealing
with this sort of crisis and Mexico
did not. What would happen would be
shocking, and I am sure unexpected,
on the part of the Mexican government.
The CIA and whatever other intelligence
groups were involved would not be
left out of the loop. They must have
aimed their super-spook satellites
on the recovery area and saw that
there were two crashes and two recoveries.
The disc was loaded onto a truck and
a convoy headed back to base. However,
later spying showed that the convoy
had stopped suddenly in the desert.
All radio traffic also came to a sudden
halt. Spy photos showed not only that
the trucks stopped in the desert but
also that the truck doors were open
and there were bodies on the desert
floor outside the trucks.
Some reports allege the Mexican government
then requested help from the U.S.
military. Some say that the Feds sent
in the troops without a solicitation
for help. I rather think it was the
Dressed in gear indicating that the
U.S. was more than experienced and
equipped to protect themselves, the
American military did come into the
scene. It is alleged they found all
of the Mexican soldiers dead. Some
still sitting in their vehicles. The
UFO was carried away with a Sea Stallion,
a helicopter used for carrying heavy
loads via cables and straps. The remaining
bodies of the Mexican soldiers, the
crashed civilian prop plane debris,
and remaining convoy trucks were wired
with explosives. The U.S. military
blew them up and let the evidence
burn into the desert sand.
The downed disc was whisked away
to some undisclosed U.S. location.
The actual cause of death of the Mexican
soldiers is not known and will, of
course, never be known.
There are no FAA documents recording
the crash of the civilian plane. I
am sure the American spooks did what
they do very well in cases like this-Full
No one in the Mexican or American
government will deny or confirm this
event. This is also what governments
do best in cases like this-Full Denial.
In this case, and the thousands of
others, details will never come to
light and we will never know the truth
unless those in the know commit to
what they should morally and ethically
do in cases like this-Full Disclosure.
WE THE PEOPLE have the right to know!
