Hangar 18

An alien life form that crashed in the New Mexico desert in 1947 has been kept alive in a highly secured area of Hanger 18 at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio.

According to UFO researchers, on July 2, 1947, an alien spaceship crashed during a violent thunderstorm in a remote area of the desert northeast of Corona, New Mexico. Personnel from Roswell Army Air Base in Roswell were immediately dispatched to clean up the area. When they arrived, they discovered alien bodies in the wreckage, one of whom was still alive. The surviving alien was treated and taken to Hangar 18 at Wright Field (now Wright-Patterson Air Force Base) in Dayton, Ohio. In some variations of the report, all the aliens were dead, and it is only their refrigerated corpses that are kept in Hangar 18.

In recent years, accounts from both civilian and military eyewitnesses to the 1947 events in the New Mexico desert speak of five alien bodies found at the impact site and state that four corpses were transported to Hangar 18 at Wright Field, the fifth to the air force’s mortuary service at Lowry Field in Denver. Two years before his death in the late 1990s, pilot Oliver “Pappy” Henderson swore at a reunion of his World War II bomber crew that he had flown the remains of four alien bodies out of Roswell in a C-54 cargo plane in July 1947.

In their book UFO Crash at Roswell (1991), Don Schmitt and Kevin Randle include an interview with Brig. Gen. Arthur Exon in which he states that, in addition to debris from the wreckage, four tiny alien cadavers were flown to Wright Field: “They [the alien bodies] were all found, apparently, outside the craft itself. The metal and material from the spaceship was unknown to anyone I talked to. [The event at] Roswell was the recovery of a craft from space.”

In his subsequent research Randle has determined that most eyewitness accounts speak of five alien bodies found at the impact site. His investigations confirm the claims made previously by other researchers that four corpses were transported to Wright Field and the fifth to Lowry Field. Numerous secondary accounts, however, maintain that one of the aliens survived the crash and was still alive when the retrieval unit arrived on the scene. Some UFO researchers believe that as late as 1986 the alien entity was still alive and well treated as a guest of the air force at Wright-Patterson. It became known to many investigators that the extraterrestrial being’s favorite flavor of ice cream was strawberry.
