A 1950 memo describing the recovery of three ‘flying saucers’ in New Mexico has been viewed millions of times since it was released in the FBI digital archive as part of the Freedom of Information Act.
The one-page memo was sent by Guy Hottel, the head of the FBI’s District of Columbia field office, to FBI chief J. Edgar Hoover. The memo contained information that Hottel had received from an about a possible UFO discovery.
“An investigator for the Air Force stated that three so-called flying saucers had been recovered in New Mexico,” Hottel wrote.
“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 fliers and test pilots.”
The fumbling response from the FBI failed to provide a believable explanation: “It is simply a second- or third-hand claim that we never investigated.”
