FBI document says three saucers crashed

Nowadays the most popular document in the FBI’s electronic reading room is a single page memo, written in 1950, dealing with the crash of three UFOs. Released under The Freedom of Information and Privacy Act the document was sent to FBI director J. Edgar Hoover, from special agent Guy Hottel, and details the crash of three UFOs in New Mexico.

No exact dates for the crashes are given, and, various portions are redacted (blacked out). Among the redacted material is the author’s name. The document describes the crash of three separate vehicles, all carrying three crew members. Those on board were described as humanoid but smaller than the average human – all about 3-feet tall. The memo goes on to describe the crews as “dressed in metallic cloth of a very fine texture”, and, states that “…each body was bandaged in a manner similar to the blackout suits used by speed fliers and test pilots.” The memo further suggests that the crafts were brought down by the Air Force’s high-powered radar which apparently had confused navigational and/or propulsion systems on the alien crafts.
