|Walter Haut's Final Roswell Testimony
A Craft Piloted by Non-humans Either Crashed or was Brought Down
Haut was the Public Information Officer at Roswell Army Air Field
on the day those "unusual events" took place. His testimony tallies
with many others. Perhaps it's time to realize that a craft piloted by
non-humans either crashed or was brought down in July 1947.
should now properly come to terms with the implications of this rather
than either pretending it never happened or pretending that there are
more important things we should be considering. This has received
some media coverage. As usual, there is often an
inability to report facts accurately - he did NOT make this testimony on
his deathbed. It was written and sealed in 2002 and kept until he died.

In 1947, he became the public information officer for the 509th Atomic
Bomb Group at Roswell Army Air Field in New Mexico. The base commander,
Colonel William H. Blanchard, was a close personal friend.
In 1991, Haut
and two other men founded the International UFO Museum where he
presided as president until 1996. Haut died on December 15th, 2005 at
the age of eighty-three.

later claimed greater involvement, including seeing alien corpses
and a craft at a base hangar and handling the strange crash debris.
In the first book on the subject, The Roswell Incident,
Haut was said to be "not a witness." He told interviewers in 1979 that
base commander Colonel William Blanchard asked him to write and
distribute the press release but that was told that when he asked to see
the object in question, "his request was impossible."
In UFO Crash at Roswell, Haut appears as a witness, though not to any of
actual debris. During a March, 1989 interview he said he knew "nothing"
about what was recovered. He described being asked by Blanchard to
write the press release. "I didn't hear about it until, I guess, Jess
[Jesse Marcel, head intelligence officer, who initially investigated and
recovered some of the debris] was on his way to the flightline."
did, however, describe what Marcel told him: "It was something he had
never seen and didn't believe it was of this planet. I trusted him on
his knowledge." He further stated: "I think there was a giant cover-up
on this thing."

|Roswell UFO crash 1947
In July 1947, an unusual craft crashed in the desert of
New Mexico. The Roswell Army Air base was involved in recovering the
craft, possibly including 4-5 bodies.
On July 8th, the Roswell newspaper published a Front Page Article -
taken from the official press release written by Lt. Walter Haut of the
RAAF 509th acting under orders of Col. William Blanchard - reading:
"RAAF Captures Flying Saucer On Ranch in Roswell Region"
Following orders from Col William Blanchard (and probably Gen Roger
Ramey and Washington higher-ups), Haut recanted the flying disk press
release hours later, claiming via the next day's paper that it was just a
weather balloon recovered.
The Roswell Army AirField, 509th Division was where America's then 15
nuclear bombs were stored, including the only planes equipped to fly
them, the only pilots and bombers trained to release them, and at the
time was the largest air landing strip in the world.
In an affidavit signed May 14th, 1993, he repeated the above claimed
sequence of events and added "I believe Col. Blanchard saw the material,
because he sounded positive about what the material was.
There is no
chance he would have mistaken it for a weather balloon. Neither is there
any chance that Major Marcel would have been mistaken."
By this time, Haut, along with Max Littell and Glenn Dennis had opened
the International UFO Museum and Research Center. Then, in a recorded
interview from 2000 with Wendy Connors and Dennis Balthauser, Haut
claimed to have personally viewed an extraterrestrial or alien craft and
a body in a Roswell Army Air Field base hangar and being present at a
senior staff meeting where a cover-up of events was discussed.
placed Brigadier General Roger M. Ramey head of the Eighth Army Air
Force in Fort Worth, Texas, at the meeting. Ramey would later tell the
press it was in fact a misidentified weather balloon after Haut had put
out the press release of the recovered "flying disc."
In December 2002, Haut signed a sealed affidavit in which he went into
more details about the craft, debris, bodies, and cover-up. Both the
interview and affidavit were not to be released until after his death.
The full text of the affidavit was first published in June 2007 in the
book Witness to Roswell: Unmasking the 60 Year Cover-Up.
the authors, Haut had sworn to his friend Colonel Blanchard not to
reveal in his lifetime the events he witnessed and therefore told
researchers either that he couldn't remember or that he had only
prepared and released the information that was given to him at the time
and denied he knew anything else.
In his affidavit, Haut stated that on July 8th, 1947, following the
press release he put out in the afternoon, he was taken out to a base
hangar by Colonel Blanchard.
'There he saw an egg-shaped craft about 15 feet long andseveral small bodies about four feet tall with large heads.He was convinced the bodies were alien and had comefrom a crashed spacecraft'

heads. He was convinced the bodies were alien and had come from a
Haut also stated that there had been two major crash sites that he had
become aware of the day before, the first a large debris field about 75
miles northwest of Roswell (the site investigated by Major Marcel), and
the second, about 40 miles north of town, where the main craft and
bodies were found.
The north site had just been found by civilians on
July 7th, and apparently word had already gotten out about it in the
At the staff morning meeting on July 8th, which Haut said he attended,
key officers at the base were briefed and strange debris was handed
around, which nobody could identify. Haut also said there was a
discussion as to what the public was to be told.
General Ramey had flown
in to attend the meeting. Haut said Ramey suggested telling the public
about the more distant debris field as a diversion from the more
accessible and important body/craft site. He felt Ramey was following
orders from The Pentagon.
Haut added he was not aware at the time exactly what information was to
But the press release he put out a few hours later spoke of
the more distant site in general terms, saying that the Army Air Force
had come into possession of a "flying disc" with cooperation of a local
rancher, and it was being flown on to "higher headquarters" after being
examined at the base.
"Higher headquarters" quickly turned out to be
Gen. Ramey in Fort Worth, who within a few hours said the "flying disc"
was a misidentified weather balloon.
