On July 2, 1947, an object crash landed on a ranch, approximately 75 miles northwest of Roswell, leaving a large field of debris. The local air base at Roswell investigated after the rancher first reported it to Roswell authorities on July 6. On July 8, the Roswell Army Air Field (RAAF) announced it had recovered a "flying disk". A few hours after the initial "flying disk" press release, U.S. Army Air Force officials stated that it was not a UFO, but a weather balloon. When the question of what crashed was revived in the early 1980s, the "Roswell Incident" became a focus of conspiracy theorists, "abductees," and UFO investigators. It is believed the crashed UFO's were used for 'reverse engineering', explaining the rapid advancement in technology since that time.

The truth or fiction surrounding the Roswell Incident (1947) is a subjective one, colored by the state of the world society at the time and by references to other UFO lore. A…ccording to witnesses who claimed to have arrived on the scene before the military was notified, there was a crash of an unearthly spacecraft. However, these were not scientists, but generally ordinary citizens. Local media, officials, and the military sent out conflicting reports over the incident, but no physical proof of an extraterrestrial nature currently exists. The debris officially catalogued included the foil paper, balsa sticks, and balloon rubber of the Project MOGUL test prototype that landed on the ranch. Other than descriptions by the local citizens, there is no proof anything more was there, or that any particular event happened. So you can choose to believe it or not. Each person has to make up his own mind.
No. What "crashed" was probably a film cache from a spy satellite or high altitude balloon. It was only a "UFO" to those who were not informed about what had actually come dow…n out of the sky. To those who knew, it was not an "Unidentified Flying Object." Since 1947 was well before satellites, that means it was a balloon. Specifically, Project MOGUL's Flight # 4 which was tracked to within a few miles of the "crash" site. MOGUL was top secret (a spy balloon prototype), so the AAF used the cover story of a weather balloon. Actually, the balloon used in MOGUL was an off-the-shelf weather balloon, so it wasn't even a lie. The secret part was the instrument package, which was not photographed in General Ramey's office, as the rest of the debris was.
No, but an unidentified flying object certainly crashed on the 8th.
There were no UFO crashes anywhere on Earth. The myth is that UFOs crashed, or were shot down, near Roswell, NM in 1947, but that's entirely unfounded.
I guess it depends on who you ask. Eye witnesses say they saw some kind of craft that had crashed and was in pieces, and there were three small beings at the crash site. Two w…ere supposedly dead, the third was injured but was walking around. If you ask the US military, they will give a big speech about a weather balloon and the bogus investigations to discover the truth in Roswell, 1947.
People say "yes there was a crash" The Government say "No, there is no such thing of UFO" You Chose
Maybye, I think that is was but heck you never know
Yes, I'm sure there are plenty. The Roswell area is where the US government tests their newest top secret military aircraft and I guarantee you that any objects seen flying ar…ound Roswell NM will not be identified by them.
The government just won't tell.
There was no need for a burial, they all evaporated on impact.
They are not buried because there was no UFO crash.
All of the 0 aliens involved survived the 1947 Roswell New Mexico UFO crash.
Roswell, New Mexico is located in the Chihuahuan Desert.
