The FBI released a 1950 document from their vaults stating that three flying saucers and nine alien bodies were recovered in New Mexico. The document is a memo written by FBI agent Guy Hotel, addressed to the FBI director. The subject states: “Flying Saucers, Information Concerning.”

It states the flying saucers were 50 feet in diameter and each contained three being, each 3 feet tall and wearing clothing of a fine metallic cloth. It adds that a high-powered radar set-up in New Mexico may have interfered with the controlling mechanisms of the flying saucers, which caused them to crash.

The document was released mostly in its complete form. There is one line at the beginning that was apparently erased, and two names are blacked out.

The March 22, 1950, document reads in full:



The following information was furnished to EA (information deleted).

An investigator for the Air Forces stated that three so-called flying saucers had been recovered in New Mexico. They were described as being circular in shape with raised centers, approximately 50 feet in diameter. Each one was occupied by three bodies of human shape but only 3 feet tall, dressed in metallic cloth of a very fine texture. Each body was bandaged in a manner similar to the blackout suits used by speed flyers and (unreadable) pilots.

According to Mr. (information deleted) informant, the saucers were found in New Mexico due to the fact that the government has a very high-powered radar set-up in that area and it is believed the radar interferes with the controlling mechanisms of the saucers.

No further evaluation was attempted by EA (information deleted) concerning the above.



There are thousands of other documents on UFOs in the FBI Vault, which I’ve sorted though. Check out the story here.
