The Aztec Recovery

Source: W. Steinman & W. Stevens, 'UFO Crash at Aztec'


Summary: On 25 March 1948, an Unidentified Flying Object was detected and picked up on their scopes by three separate and strategically located RADAR units in the southwestern part of the Unites States. It seems that [the beam from one of the radars] had some kind of effect on the central control system of the flying object, for immediately it seemed to go out of control. The following is an in-depth overview of the crash and subsequent recovery of a UFO and sixteen humanoid occupants near Aztec, New Mexico.


On 25 March 1948, an Unidentified Flying Object was detected and picked up on their scopes by three separate and strategically located RADAR units in the southwestern part of the Unites States. One of the radars was a very high-powered experimental installation situated high on a mountain top in the four comers area (an area where Utah, Arizona, New Mexico and Colorado inset). It seems that the beam emanated from this unit had some kind of effect on the central control system of the flying object, for immediately it seemed to go out of control. It fluttered and wobbled frcm side to side, and appeared to be taking a trajectory towards the ground.

Contact with the object was attempted by radio, with no response. Immediately the Air Defense Command (ADC) was notified and local military units were activated. Through previous experience with this sort of bogy image, the director of the high-powered radar site wired a special message to General George C. Marshall, Secretary of State, telling him that an unidentified flying object was about to crash somewhere in the four comers area. Marshall immediately called an impromptu meeting with the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the National Security Council, and the President. They were connected up to a direct voice-to-voice communication with that top-secret radar station.

Marshall ordered ADC and their associated military units to stay on standby status; but not to take action unless specifically told to do so by himself. Hs then contacted the MJ-12 group, later to become known as "The Committee of 12" and/or "The Special Group" (see chapter II for details). tfe then placed the special unit of Army Counterintel-ligence, the Interplanetary Phenomenon Unit (IPU) of the Scientific and Technical Branch, on Red-Alert. This unit was established shortly after the Rosewell and Magdalena debris residues were collected and discovered to be of strange material of unknown origin. The IPU operated out of Camp Hale, Colorado, with the unigue purpose of collecting and delivering crashed and/or disabled Flying Saucers to designated secret points-

By means of triangulation, based upon information frcm the three separate radar units, the proposed area of impact was calculated to be in the vicinity of Aztec, New Mexico. This information was irrtnediately radioed to General Marshall, who in turn relayed it to the IPU Comnan-der at Camp Hale. A scout team was immediately dispatched by helicopter from Camp Bale to the Aztec area.

Within a few hours, the IPU Scout Team sighted the object on top of a rocky plateau in a very rugged area about 12 miles northeast of Aztec. The object appeared to be circular in shape, dented on top, and roughly 100 feet in diameter. The Scout Commander radioed back to IPU Headquarters at Camp Hale, "We have a Flying Saucer on the ground about 12 miles northeast of Aztec." Ha gave the exact map coordinates. The IPU Commander relayed the message to General Marshall.

At that instant all ccrnmunication was cut off with the radar station facilities, and only remained open between IPU and Marshall. General Marshall then ordered the Air Defense Command to "de-activate" (go off alert) and all local military units were told to go about their usual business, and the Radar Stations were, told that there had been a false alarm, and to go off standby. (See Exhibit 3)

Marshall then ordered the commander of IPU to organize a recovery team. This unit knew exactly what to do. They had been practicing for something like this for almost a year. As this commando-type unit was heading south towards Aztec, Marshall contacted Dr. Vannevar Bush, briefing him on the situation, He told Dr. Bush to organize an impromptu scientific team to accompany the IPU team to the crash-site.

Dr. Vannevar Bush was the Director of The Research and Development Board (R&DB), the peace time version of the wartime Office of Scientific Research and Development, under whose leadership was developed the atonic bomb, RADAR, the proximity fuse, magnetic anti-submarime warfare, and many other such devices. Bush had the reputation of being both a creative scientist and an organizer with creditable leadership abilities. His reputation was well known throughout the entire Scientific community; and he could easily persuade any scientist, no matter who he was or what position he held, to drop what he was doing and join the cause at hand. That is exactly how he put together C6R&D during the wartime emergency situation.

Bush organized a team including such names as Dr. John Von Neumann, the physicist-mathematician from Princeton who established the basic fundamentals for our modern day hand held calculators and computers; Dr. J. Robert Cppenheimer, the individualist free-thinking physicist who headed up the atomic bomb development project at los Alamos, New Mexico; Dr. Detlev Wulf Bronk, a physiologist and biophysicist of international repute, chairman of the National Research Council, member of the-Medical Advisory Board of the Atonic Energy Commission, member of the Scientific Advisory Committee of the Brookhaven National laboratory until 1946, Coordinator of Research at the Air Surgeon's

Office (Army Air Fbrce), and Director of the Institute of tfeurology, among other things; Dr. Lloyd V. Berkner, Geophysicist and Electrical Engineer, a member of the staff of the Department of Terrestrial Mag-netism at the Cbmegie Institute of Washington, Executive Secretary of the Research and Development Board under Bush, ard Bead of the Department of Exploratory Geophysics of the Upper Atmosphere at the Carnegie Institute; Dr. Carl August Beiland, geophysicist and magnetic sciences expert, Bead of the Geophysics Department of the Colorado School of Mines; Dr. Horace Buele Van Valkenburgh, inorganic chemist associated with the University of Colorado, in Boulder; and Dr. Jerome C. Hunsakeer, Head of the Department of Aeronautical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MPT); and several other similar specialists.

These scientists were called and were told by Bush to meet at Durango Airfield on the outskirts of Durango, Colorado as quickly as possible. He informed them that this mission was extremely important and of the utmost secrecy. They would be briefed on the details upon arrival at the airfield. Bush, himself, was to be ccmpletely in charge of the scientific segment of the operation, reporting directly to General Marshall.

In the meantime the IPU Scout Team circled over the crash-landed disc, radioing back to the main recovery team a detailed route over a network of unimproved dirt roads to the crash site from Durango Airfield, 35 miles to the north. The main recovery team was imformed that the disc was at least 100 feet in diameter, and they would need at least three heavy equipment hauling trucks and trailers, and plenty of dismantling equipment

The Scout Team also watched for any evidence of Civilian personnel in the immediate area. They moticed a ranch house within a half mile of the crash, informing the main team members of the exact location. This crash-site was a plateau overlooking a deep and secluded canyon, marked on the survey maps as Hart Canyon. After some immediate checking the main team commander was informed that this crash-site was located on a cattle ranch cwned by a Mr. H.D. (still living); and that the ranch house was being occupied by him and his family.

The convoy of IPU team members reached the crash-site, virtually unnoticed by civilians living in the area, by taking great care to not arouse interest, and by taking maximum advantage of the ridges and ravines of the rugged plateaus along the Hart Canyon walls.

No military press agent was available to make the same mistake that Colonel Blanchard and lieutenant Haut made on 8 July 1947, at Rosewell Army Air force Ease. The brass learned a lesson from that recovery operation. The Rjsewell recovery set a precident as how NOT to handle such a situation, if the chance ever came again. Procedure was developed through the mistakes made during that incident. This entire operation was to be carried out under a shroud of utmost secrecy. No one was to knew about this recovery operation outside the handful of men involved, and they were sworn to an ABOVE TOP-SECRET OATH, which carried dire consequences if broken!!

General Marshall called the Secretary of Interior asking him to transfer the piece of property on which the crash-site was located, from the ownership of H.D. to Federal Status!! tfershall accomplished this in such a way as not to arouse suspicions concerning the real reason, and carried it off successfully.

Upon arrival at the crash-site, the IPU recovery team went into immediate action. Road blocks were set up at strategic locations on all access roads within 2 miles of the crash scene (these road blocks could not be seen from the highway). Guards were posted at all roadblocks, with explicit orders to turn away all persons who did not have the proper pass-cards. The owner of the ranch and his family were held incccnnunicado within their cwn ranch house. They were told that a top-secret military operation was in progress, and it was their patriotic duty to stay inside. They were also told in a very emphatic manner/ not to tell anyone what had occurred on their ranch. Needless to say, H.D. refuses to answer any questions petaining to this strange incident to this very day. He has been properly intimidated.

The equipment hauling trucks were camouglaged to appear as oil drilling rigs, just in case anyone got past the roadblocks or happened to see the activity from a distance. Every aspect of the operation was covered in its minutest detail in order to divert any possible notice away from it.

The scientific team arrived on scene shortly after the IPU team got there. They went into immediate action, first checking for any possible radioactivity. The ground and the disc-shaped machine were both gone over very carefully with Geiger counters. The rancher's water supply and livestock were placed under quarantine until they were proven fit for human consumption.


Immediately after all the preliminaries were taken care of, the ship itself became the main object of attention, there didn't seem to be any way of access into the saucer's interior. The entire surface was smoothe and appeared to bo one continuous piece, with no seams, breaks in contour, fasteners, or any other evidence of joining of metals. There were what appeared to be "windows" or "ports" that seemed to be metallic, but were actually transparent when seen up very close (kind of like our one way mirrors or the solarized glass that we now have).

These scientists were completely stricken with awe as they examined the exterior of this amazing aeroform of unknown origen. Some just steed back to take in the entire scene, while others crawled under and around it feeling its texture and shape. Finally, to break the heavy silence, Bush told the men to get to work, for this entire project must be over with as scon as possible, leaving not a trace of evidence behind.

The first thing that had to be done was to gain entry into the interior of the craft. The ship was gone over very carefully, but they could not find anything that remotely resembled any door or natch. Finally, one of the scientists, after closely looking through each "porthole", noticed what happened to be a double-pushbutton type (a knob-shaped protrusion with a button in the middle) affair on one of the cabin's walls. Efe motioned the others over to look for themselves. Qie of the scientists picked up a hammer and beat the "porthole" "glass" out. Another scientist found a long pole which he then poked through the hole made in the "port", barely reaching the pushbutton affair. The button was finally pushed, and to their surprise, a door opened, downward from the cabin's side, down through the disc's rim flange.

Immediately, one by one, the scientists scrambled up the ramp, into the cabin chamber. There, slumped over the instrument panel were two human-like beings, about four feet in height and charred to a deep chocolate brown color, through some mishap known only to them.

The instrument panel contained several push-buttons and control levers labeled in a heiroglyphic type symbol-form unknown to any of the scientists in the team. Cppenheimer, who knew Sanscrit, made a remark that the symbols did resemble Sanscrit to some degree. Also on the instrument panel were blinking lights and more symbols lit up on small display screens (sort of like our modern digital readout on watches, calculators, etc. There was also a beeping sound emanating from something that remotely resembled our ncdem day hand held portable transistor radios. These scientists were once again amazed by these technologically very advanced devices that none of them had seen anyplace before.

Examining the ship, they found another chamber within the cabin that must have been seme sort of sleeping quarters. There were retractable beds that pulled out of the walls. There also were 12 more charred bodies sprawled around on the floor, they carried these little bodies outside and layed them in even rows on the ground beside the craft.

Immediately, Dr. Cetlev Malf Bronk began to examine the bodies with extreme care. These little creatures were either dwarfs piloting a very highly advanced aircraft from some country on this Earth, or they were aliens of extraterrestrial origin. His thoughts quickly went to preservation. He asked Dr. Bush if they could obtain seme cryogenic equipment with which to preserve these bodies for further examination and study. Bush's mind went to Dr. Paul A. Scherer, who worked with him very closely as the Director of the Transition Division of CGR&D (Cffice of Scientific Research and Development) during the war, and was now with Bush on the Board of Directors of the Carnegie Institute in Washington, D.C. Scherer's specialty was cryogenics, and he had plenty of connections all over the U.S. concerning cryogenic equipment, materials and techniques.

Dr. Bush immediately radioed Dr. Scherer, briefing him on the situation. Scherer told Bush to get some dry ice for temporary preservation of the bodies, while he made some quick contacts in the southwestern part of the country.

While Bush was conferring vjith Scherer, another group of scientists and military personnel were examining the craft very thoroughly for any way to disassemble it. They first tried cutting torches, without success. Ihe torches didn't even phase the metal, which had a brushed aluminum type appearance. Then they tried diamond drills and diamond cutting saws. One bit and blade after another dulled very quickly. The material just could not be penetrated. Finally, one scientist, after a very thorough examination, found a place on the inside where there was some sort of interlocking key device. When he pulled on the device, a seam opened up on the ship, at that particular location, from top to bottom. Be continued around the ship and found several of these devices at equally spaced intervals. Here was the key to the disassembly problem they had been looking for.

While the ship was being disassembled, Dr. Von Neumann and Dr. Bush became very interested in the control panel, they found that the panel had drawers that rolled out, but no wixeing was seen. These drawers seemed to be sections of the "electrical" circuitry frcm which the controls received their power (kind of like the modern day electronic devices with integrated circuits). They were amazed at how this entire control panel, which no doubt operated on a computer type principle, could be compacted into such a small space. Dr. Von Neumann and Dr. Bush had developed the first computers during the war, but those took entire rooms full of electronic equipment, wireing, etc., to operate them. Each one of these pull-out "drawers" contained thousands of microscopic pull-out "chips". What kind of technology were they dealing with? Where did this ship come from? Many questions to answer.

die scientist found what appeared to be a book composed of parchment-like pages having the texture of plastic. It contained more examples of the same "Sanscrit-like" symbols that labeled the instrument panels, and which shewed up on the tiny illuminated display screens. I-fcfcody could read the script. The book was passed on to General George Marshall, who turned it over to this nations two topmost experts in cryptology, William F. Friedman and Lambros C.P. Callihamos. A sample of this type of scriptform is presented here for your information.

Once the saucer was disassembled, three big tracks were maneuvered into place and the pieces were carefully loaded up. Canvas tarps were snugly tied down over the loads and signs designating "EXPLOSIVES" were plastered all over each truck. Anyone who happened to see the trucks on their way to Los Alamos would be easily deceived.

After three full days of extensive activity, the convoy of three trucks and two automobiles left the crash scene by night. Ihe route they took followed a network of dirt and gravel roads and some off road travel out the east end of Hart Canyon. This was found to be the least populated and most inconspicuous route towards Ids Alamos, which was to be a temporary storage site until an underground compound could be constructed. Travelling was done late at night through least pop-ulated areas and over roads with least traffic or simply crosscountry when necessary.

Immediately after the convoy of vehicles left the plateau-top crash scene, the clean up crew went into action. They buried all evidence of military activity there, such as trash, worn out tooling, bracing, disturbances on the ground, etc. A barbed wire fence was then erected around the entire top of the crash-recovery site on the plateau, which new belonged to the Federal Government. Cne mistake overlooked was that seme of the bracing materials which were thought too big for the burial excavation at the time were left on top to be hauled away. Otherwise only some charred rocks and broken down cedar pine trees remained as evidence for some future field investigator to discover.

The convoy reached a pre-determined secluded portion of the Ids Alamos atcmic testing area, after a week of laborious travel over the primitive roads and country, moving mostly by the light of the MDon. Hare the saucer was unloaded piece by piece and reassembled for a very thorough and extensive examination. Ifere the saucer was stored for over a year, until it was moved to a more permanent site prepared for it and other such residue.

A little over a year and a half after the recovery; actually it was about in November of 1949, Dr. Eric Efenry Wang, a consultant to the Wright Air Development Center on Aerodynamic Matallurgical Design for the Structures Division, who was on the staff pf the University of Cincinnatti (see Chapter IX), was called in on the project. Dr. Wang had a friend by the name of Nicholas Von Poppen, a photographer, who had perfected the art of metallurgical close-up photography as it was applied in the aerospace sciences field.

Von Poppen, an Estonian refugee of royal blood, who carried, the title of Baron, had fled Estonia by the "skin of his teeth" during the Soviet "annexation" of 1941. Efe enjoyed various scientific and technological interests, among which was photography. Ffe had perfected the art of close-up metallurgical photography for technical applications, using a combination of camera and microscope techniques. Be was in demand throughout the aerospace industry.

Dr. Wang called Von Poppen in on this project in order to get some better microphotographs to include in the final report of the recovery operation. But Dr. Wang didn't call Von Poppen direct; things had to be done according to the protocol of the security system. Two members of the intelligence agencies went to his home in Hollywood, California, telling him of the highly classified photographic job that was expected of him. Both Von Poppen and the two Intelligence officers flew to a landing field within the Ids Alamos Complex. From there they boarded a bus with blacked-out windows, which then took them to a top-secret location within the Complex. Von Poppen was amazed at what he saw - a huge disc-shaped object of a shiny brushed-aluminum finish, sitting on the ground with military brass, intelligence guards and officers, and scientific personnel all around it. It had an almost Circus-like atmosphere about it in the form of small and large tents, tables full of scientific instruments, and vehicles of all shapes and sizes scattered all around the area.

Von Poppen was issued the finest and most advanced photographic equipment that money could buy. If he were lacking anything, all he had to do was ask for it; and a plane would fly in the very next day with the exact piece of equipment that he requisitioned. Ife spent two days taking over 200 photographs of the ship from all different angles and views, close-up and distant, and some of them literally within inches to show the texture of the metal, tfe also made microscopic photographs using his special technique. Efe was allowed to photograph every part of the craft, inside and out, except for one mechanism which seemed to be a central power supply.

Von Poppen was enthralled by the highly advanced technology clearly indicated, "which," as he stated, "showed me that these people have long ago passed the stage of technological development we find ourselves now in, and they were again tending toward the simplification of life, thus eliminating the complicated intricacies which tend to obscure the natural laws of being." Ifere, as Von Poppen did, one tends to philosophize on the issues.

Von Poppen went on to describe what he thought might be various components that made up the "cosmic space motor", as he put it. "First of all there were 15 little machines, beautifully welded to the floor, that appeared something like typewriters (possibly computers). Then there were heavy copper-like cables coiled around the outer walls of the chime (within the disc portion), and that mechanism I was forbidden to photograph," Von Poppen said. Von Poppen described the ship as seme sort of computerized electro-magnetically driven flying saucer!! Many others who have touched on this subject involving these flying objects1 mode of operation have provided a similar basic description.

Von Poppen also described the little bodies which he was allowed to see and to photograph with the official equipment, He states, "The largest, who seemed to be the Captain, was four feet nine inches tall and weighed about 35 pounds (very thin). The smallest and obviously (to Von Poppen) the youngest, was 23 inches tall and weighed about 22 pounds. They were white men, with very pale skin (where not discolored) as if they had come from a cold world with little air. Their faces were intellectual and refined in appearance. I have never seen anything like them here on Earth." Here in 1949, Von Poppen was describing what recent sources have been revealing to Len Stringfield, W.L. Moore, Larry Bryant, and others.

Von Poppen should never have revealed this experience to Dr. George C. Tyler on that rainy day in November 1949. That was the beginning of the end for both individuals. Both Von Poppen and Tyler were under close intelligence surveillance until both died under mysterious circumstances (Tyler first, on 13 Cctober 1954, and then Von Poppen on 13 March 1976). Both individual's apartments were thoroughly ransacked by very unusual persons immediately after their deaths!!

A telex was sent to Headquarters, Assistant Chief of Staff, G-2 {Army Intelligence) in Vfeshington D.C. from Camp Hale, Cblorado, describing the craft and the recovery operation. A copy was transmitted to Cbunterintelligence Special Headquarters at K>pe Air Fbrce Ease, within the Fort Bragg Complex in North Carolina. Captain Virgil A. Postlethwait, with the Cbunterintelligence V-Oorps along with his Air Fbrce Counterpart, Captain Donald A. Broadus (A-2) handled this TWX, which went as follows:



As stated before, Dr. Vannevar Bush asked Dr. Paul A Scherer to have some preservation containers made for the bodies. Dr. Scherer acted very promptly. Hs had the chambers ready within a few weeks. One of manufacturing companies that contributed the major part to these special chambers was Air-Research Corporation. They supplied the liquidr-nitrogen pump, circulatory system, and refrigeration units, without having the slightest idea what for!

Dr. Scherer was the director of Research and Development for the Air-Fesearch Corporation from 1940 until 1944, when he joined Dr. Bush at CER&D. ffe had everyone in that corporation very loyal to him, allowing him to have a very persuasive influence over them.

The containers, which resembled a cross between glass covered funeral caskets and deep-freeze units, were tailor made to suit the primary purpose - preserve these unique bodies for study. These containers operated on the principles of a cryogenic "deep-freeze" unit, utilizing liquid nitrogen to keep the temperature at extreme sub-zero cold levels. The special cases were prepared for the better preserved more intact bodies. Selected specimens were preserved in these units which had been made with transparent covers and were vented and exhausted in such a way that it was possible to view the bodies without opening the special display case. Other specimens were prepared for ordinary cryogenic storage in the wrappings and stored in cylinders for possible future need. In this way these very unusual and unique bodies of unknown origin could be preserved indefinitely.

Some of the bodies were not frozen, but autopsied and parted out for more detailed study, from which exhaustive reports were made. Doctor Detlev Waif Bronk, as stated, was initially in charge of the physical examination of these bodies frcm this craft. Hs had the responsibility of trying to give a full report covering every phase of this strange life-form's physiological, anatomical and biophysical make-up. He organized and directed a team made up of biophysicists, histochemists, patholegists, etc. The results were accumulated and organized into a summary report, a copy of which was included, in part, in the later "Project Sign Report Nd. 13". [This may be a confusion with unfounded reports of a "Project Grudge Report #13", mentioned in the appendices to this work. Vfe must remember that the current name of the Air Force UFO project at the time mentioned here was then "Project Sign".]

The alien body report described them briefly as follows:

"The bodies were all small, averaging 42 inches in length. The facial features strongly resembled mongoloid orientals in appearance, with large heads, large "slant" eyes, small noses and mouths. The average weight was around 40 pounds. They had very thin necks. Their torso was very small and thin. They had long and slender arms reaching the knees, with hands containing long and slender fingers with webbing between them. There didn't seem to be any reproductive organs. (One scientist suggested that these "aliens" might be manufactured or constructed)

Instead of blood, as we know it, they had a colorless liquid prevalent in the body, with no red cells. This liquid had a kind of ozone smell about it. They had no digestive system or GI tract, no alimentary or intestinal canal and no rectal point.

As the one scientist stated, "I got the inipression that these alien beings were "constructed". These humanoid beings may have been clones produced through some very highly advanced genetic technology!"

Even now our own genetic technology has just scratched the surface compared to the technological wonders found in that flying machine near Aztec, New Mexico. Dr. Bronk and his team were fasc inated with what they had found. A whole new world opened up to them. But the questions remained; who were the advanced "alien" scientists who had built this flying object, manufactured these life-forms, if they did, and where do they come from?

Notes: A few observations with respect to the material offered in this first chapter may be in order here.

From the foregoing it may be seen that the parts and residue from the Aztec UFO crash were first taken to Los Alamos Complex for a number of very good reasons. That was home ground to Drs. Bush and also Oppenheimer who headed this recovery team and effort, and also because they already had the necessary security systems in place, a secure facility to store the recovered material in and to work in, and all the technicians and special equipment they would need to carry out their more extensive examinations. A further plan, early on, was to construct a proper, suitably secured, adequately equipped underground facility to house the recovered remains and material for the long-term project visualized. After all, this was not the first recovery, and they did not know how many more there would be.

The Navy Auxiliary Airfield in the AEC area (described in Appendix 4) was the ideal site for the proposed underground facility to be needed for this storage and research, because it too was already secured, has housing, hospital and support facilities, including its own water and power supply, and a railroad spur right into the installation. It also was familiar ground to Bush and Oppenheimer, then in charge of this project, who were also supervising other projects in this AEC area.

This also explains why Dr. Vannevar Bush was the American Scientist who frequently visited Alice Springs and Pine Gap in Australia, a location of one of the later de-centralized UFO research sites when the U.S. and some of its partners began trying to construct such a craft.

We can see also how Mr. Leo Gebauer, who was associated with Doctor Carl A. Heiland in some magnetics research, came into his knowledge of the Aztec crash and some of the details. Gebauer was the unintended "leak" outside of the group of scientists sworn to secrecy, who really had all Gebauer said they had and much, much more. Gebauer picked his information up from Dr. Heiland, staff and associates who were working on magnetics aspects of the problem at hand, hence the heavy emphasis on a magnetics aspect to the phenomenon. Gebauer carried the information out as "scuttlebutt", with a little of the residue he was able to get hold of. Dr. Heiland was now "confiding" in Gebauer, not Silas Newton, and probably thought little of a "leak" until Scully published the story. Then there was a lot of back-tracking to repair the damage done. Heiland was eventually separated from the main research project because of this, and still, because of security corn-par tmentizat ion, did not know all the details you are reading here. Dr. Heiland, we must emphasize, was not guilty of any betrayal of our secrets, and he never violated his security oaths.

Gebauer, the real "leak" has passed-on as well as Silas Newton and Frank Scully, the ones who published the story. The real secrets are still safe and the research work goes on at a number of decentralized sites even today.

The Dr. "G" identification used by Newton and Scully as their source was actually a cnver for all of Gebauer's connections, through which they got the little information they had.

As a further note, we may observe that somebody who contributed to the making of the movie Hangar 18 seems to have known something about the written script form found an this ship, because certain of the symbols shown in that movie are very similar to the real ones found in the craft. Also some of the display screens on the movie version of the crashed UFO are remarkably similar to some of those seen aboard the crashed craft.
