B-262046 July 28, 1995The Honorable Steven H. Schiff House of RepresentativesDear Mr. Schiff:On July 8, 1947, the Roswell Army Air Field (
RAAF
) public informationoffice in Roswell, New Mexico, reported the crash and recovery of a“flying disc.” Army Air Forces personnel from the
RAAF
’s 509th BombGroup were credited with the recovery. The following day, the pressreported that the Commanding General of the U.S. Eighth Air Force, FortWorth, Texas, announced that
RAAF
personnel had recovered a crashedradar-tracking (weather) balloon, not a “flying disc.” After nearly 50 years, speculation continues on what crashed at Roswell.Some observers believe that the object was of extraterrestrial origin. In the July 1994 Report of Air Force Research Regarding the Roswell Incident,the Air Force did not dispute that something happened near Roswell, butreported that the most likely source of the wreckage was from aballoon-launched classified government project designed to determine thestate of Soviet nuclear weapons research. The debate on what crashed atRoswell continues.Concerned that the Department of Defense (
DOD
) may not have provided you with all available information on the crash, you asked us to determinethe requirements for reporting air accidents similar to the crash nearRoswell and identify any government records concerning the Roswellcrash.We conducted an extensive search for government records related to thecrash near Roswell. We examined a wide range of classified andunclassified documents dating from July 1947 through the 1950s. Theserecords came from numerous organizations in New Mexico and elsewherethroughout
DOD
as well as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (
FBI
), theCentral Intelligence Agency (
CIA
), and the National Security Council. Thefull scope and methodology of our work are detailed at the end of thisreport.
