>>New Book Discloses UFO Crash

>>A retired U.S. Air Force colonel and former fighter jet pilot
>>says that he chased a UFO across West Texas and watched it crash
>>along the Rio Grande River near Del Rio, Texas. Shortly after,
>>he visited the crash site and saw a metallic object unlike any
>>aircraft he had ever seen "sticking into the side of a hill."
>>Decorated World War II and Korean War veteran Robert B.
>>Willingham, 82, discloses his strange 1955 encounter in a new
>>book titled "The Other Roswell: UFO Crash on the Texas-Mexico
>>border," written by UFO researchers Noe Torres and Ruben
>>Uriarte. The book is available on Amazon.com and at the
>>publisher=E2=80=99s Web site, roswellbooks.com.

>This is still another failed permutation of the bogus Willingham
>story as new 'investigators' strive to alter the story to 'fix'
>it. In the early versions of Willingham's fable, the alleged
>event took place in 1948 or 1950, not 1955. Willingham even
>signed a sworn affidavit in 1977 swearing under oath that it
>occurred in 1948. Now we're told it was actually in 1955? How
>did that change and why is this latest story more definitive
t>han Willingham's account thirty some years ago under sworm
>oath, and much closer in time to the alleged event?

>In Willingham's early story the purported crash occurred near
>Laredo, Texas, some 150 miles from Del Rio, Texas. How is that
>discrepancy resolved, or is it just covered up? The MJ-12
>Eisenhower Briefing Document hoaxers couldn't figure it out
>either so they split the distance between Laredo and Del Rio and
>put the UFO crash about half way in the middle, at El Indio-
>Guerrero.

>Willingham claimed he was flying from Dyess AFB, Abilene, Texas.
>Only problem was that Dyess AFB had not even been built by 1948
>or 1950 or 1955! Abilene AFB was not built and finished until
>April 14, 1956, and not renamed Dyess AFB until Dec. 6, 1956. It
>didn't exist in 1948 or 1950 or 1955. >

>Again, in Willingham's early stories he did not see the crash
>with his eyes, but was told by radio that a Distant Early
>Warning (DEW) radar had tracked the crash to a point about 15-20
>miles over the border from Laredo into Mexico. But the DEW Line
>was never in Texas, it was a _Distant_ radar line in Northern
>Canada and Alaska, and did not go into operation until 1955-7.
>So this Willingham story of a a DEW Line radar tracking and
>pinpointing the UFO crash near the Texas-Mexican border in 1950
>or 1948 is nonsense. Now the latest story tries to get rid of
t>he phony radar hogwash by covering it up and claiming
>Willingham saw the crash with his eyes instead.>

>In the early Willingham stories he was in a two-seater F-94C jet
>when the purported UFO was tracked or sighted. But there was
>trouble finding any records indicating F-94C's had been
>stationed in Texas in 1950 when they were first introduced. Now
>in his latest story he has solved the F-94 problem but now his
>radar-navigator has disappeared from the story because he flies
>a single-seater F-86 instead! >
