Retired Pilot Saw ETs at UFO Crash Site
Del Rio Texas UFO Crash - Retired Colonel Robert B. Willingham says he visited the site of a crashed UFO

Retired Colonel Robert B. Willingham says he visited the site of a crashed UFO in 1955 near Del Rio, Texas, where he saw the bodies of three non-human entities inside the ruptured hull of the ship.

In this segment from a radio interview with Jeff Rense from March 8th, 2010, the 84-year old explains what he saw at the crash site and what the bodies looked like.

In 1955, local citizens claimed an unidentified flying object (UFO) crashed along the south bank of the Rio Grande, just a few hundred feet from the town of Langtry.

The incident was known as the Del Rio, Texas UFO Crash.


Shocking eyewitness testimony that is just as riveting as the story of the 1947 Roswell UFO crash.

On a clear spring day in 1955, Air Force pilot Robert Willingham was flying an F-86 fighter jet across West Texas when he saw an object "as bright as a star" streak past him and then execute a 90-degree turn going 2,000 miles per hour.

Giving chase in his jet, the decorated World War II and Korean War veteran watched in awe as the object suddenly plummeted to Earth near Del Rio, Texas. Soon after, he visited the crash site and saw a large, silver UFO impacted into the side of a sandy hill. Nothing could have prepared him for what happened next, as his life was about to change forever.

In 1955, local citizens claimed an unidentified flying object (UFO) crashed along the south bank of the Rio Grande, just a few hundred feet from the town of Langtry.

The incident was known as the Del Rio, Texas UFO Crash.

Former Air Force Reserve pilot Robert Burton Willingham stated that he was flying an F-86 Sabre jet fighter when he observed a UFO streak past him and crash near Langtry.


Robert Burton Willingham was born on August 15, 1926 in Holliday, Texas and attended Archer City High School, dropping out in April 1944 to join the U.S. Army.

During World War II, he served in with the Army’s 82nd Airborne Division and was also with the 288th Combat Engineers. He helped clear sunken boats out of the waters around Le Havre, France and later served under General George S. Patton.

After the fall of Nazi Germany, Willingham assisted with the post-war reconstruction of Berlin. Willingham, who had learned to fly at age 9 in a friend's World War I French biplane, was transferred to the newly-formed U.S. Air Force in 1950.

He flew P-51 Mustangs in Korea, providing support for U.S. ground forces, until he was severely wounded when North Korean troops attacked the base where he was stationed in December 1950.

The injured pilot was flown to San Antonio, Texas, where he spent months recuperating from his wounds.

When he was finally healthy, Air Force doctors ruled that he could no longer fly combat missions, and he transferred to the Air Force Reserve in order to continue flying in non-combat situations.

During this time, he also became very involved with the Civil Air Patrol, an organization in which he served throughout his military career.

At the time of his UFO encounter in 1955, Willingham was flying in Cold War training exercises out of Carswell Air Force Base in Texas. He remained in the Reserve until around 1972, rising to the rank of Colonel.

Interestingly, from 1959 to 1963, he served as a UFO investigator for Project Blue Book, assisting other investigators in taking over 2,000 witness testimonies from persons claiming to have seen UFOs.
