Joseph W. Ritrovato

This article will now look at many different stories of crashed aerial vehicles of unknown origin that occurred over a period of more than a century.

UFO Crash/Retrieval Stories: The Australian Experience

Bill Chalker, Australian Ufologist, 1997

Stories of UFO crashes form a persistent part of the UFO controversy. Whether they contribute ultimately to UFO folklore or fact will be a matter for history. With the prominence given to the Roswell saga I have put this report together to encourage feedback on this colourful area. Such stories deserve careful attention, if only to put them to rest. If only one turns out to be substantial then we have a very extraordinary situation. However I should caution none of them constitute proof of anything.
