On this date back in 1947, the Roswell Army Air Field said they had recovered a crashed "flying disc" from a nearby ranch. Later that day a general at the base stated that the debris was actually from a weather balloon and not a flying saucer. The aliens and their spacecraft were supposedly then flown to Hangar 18 at Wright Field (now Wright-Patterson Air Force Base) right here in Dayton, Ohio. The Roswell incident has kept 60 years of skeptics and conspiracy theorists busy with ideas of a massive cover-up.
