|The incident is said to have taken place
on August 25th, 1974 near the town of Coyame, Chihuahua, close to the
But within the twenty
minutes the object disappearance from the radar. Fifty-two minutes after
the disappearance, civilian radio traffic indicated that a civilian
aircraft had gone down in that area.
But it was clear the missing
aircraft had departed El Paso International to fly to Mexico City and
not have been the object being tracked over the Gulf of Mexico. US
authorities presumed a collision took place as both disappeared in the
same area at the same time.
Base on the monitored radio traffic and satellite feedback and images
the Mexican authorities found the missing plane with reports that a
second plane on the ground a few miles from the first that stated the
second plane was circular shaped and apparently in one piece although
Soon after that the Mexican military clamped a radio silence on
all search efforts and any contacts to them were met with acting
ignorance with total refusal of any cooperation.
The CIA and possibly as
many as two additional government agencies immediately began forming a
recovery team with all required military support, to take the disc by
On how the speed this team and its equipment were assembled suggests
that this was either a well rehearsed exercise or have been done before.
Satellite, monitors and aircraft fly-over materials that day indicated
that the convoy with the disc had stopped before reaching any inhabited
areas or major roads.
The recon-intelligence showed no activity and
there were signs of deaths and radio contact between the Mexican details
and its headquarters had ceased.
The US recovery team, suited with anti
bio-contaminant were over the Mexican convoy site at 16:53 inside
Mexico, and by 17:14 hrs the recovered object was on its way to US
territory with the disc then attached to a cargo cable on the Sea
But before leaving the convoy site, the US recovery team gathered
together the Mexican vehicles and bodies, the pieces of the civilian
light plane involved in the mid-air collision and then destroyed all
with high explosives.
The disc was eventually transferred to
Wright-Patterson AF Base.
Another says that the disc was either
transferred after that to another unnamed base, or was taken directly to
this unknown base directly from Atlanta.
What happened to the impact
metal debris suppose to be analyze as a suspected metal fusion of the
plane and the UFO?
Regardless this was a good investigation by the UFO
Hunters to establish an event since its been covered up.
The Coyame UFO incident first came to

document was titled "Research Findings on the Chihuahua Disk Crash" and
was addressed "To All Deneb Team Members, From JS."
In Washington D.C.,
Elaine Douglass, of the UFO group Operation Right to Know, received a
copy and forwarded it to Leonard Stringfield, who included it in his
1994 publication, UFO Crash Retrievals: Search for Proof in a Hall of
Mirrors (Status Report VII).
Acknowledged as the first UFO
researcher to give serious credence to reports of crashed UFOs,
Stringfield wrote that the Coyame incident was "authoritatively written,
using correct military terminology and, of note and unlike a hoax,
draws a line between so-called hard evidence and that which is
After the report surfaced in
1992, the story of the Coyame UFO incident lay dormant until 2005, when
producers of the cable television series UFO Files, shown on the History
Channel, created a show based on the report.
The show, called
"Mexico's Roswell," was one of several episodes about UFO crashes
similar to the 1947 Roswell UFO Incident.
Written by Vincent Kralyevich
and Scott Miller, "Mexico's Roswell" first aired on December 12th, 2005,
and featured commentary by veteran UFO investigator Ruben Uriarte, the
director of the Northern California chapter of the Mutual UFO Network
(MUFON). Uriarte had previously investigated UFO cases in Mexico and was
MUFON's liaison to Mexico's civilian UFO groups.
