APRIL 1941

Historical Account

Reverend William Huffman was called to a plane crash in April 1941 around 9 o’clock at night in a field near the local municipal airport. When he got there he found no airplane he’d ever seen. Instead he found a seamless metal saucer crashed into a field and three alien bodies lying around the craft. Two of them were already deceased but one was still breathing but struggling so he prayed over him/her. He described the creatures to be about 5 feet tall with thin bodies, bulbous heads, and black eyes. He was also able to see inside the craft and found what he said resembled Egyptian Hieroglyphs written on the interior walls of the craft. Military personnel quickly arrived, sanitized the scene, and swore all involved to secrecy. A picture taken by a local photographer existed at one point but has disappeared over time. There is documentation in the National Archives of declassified FBI memorandi detailing the retrieval. This encounter led to a professor at the local university to launch a research program in the 70s studying the crash site and another phenomena about 40 miles south called the Farenburg Lights.
