This is the story of what really happened to the wreckage found at the two crash sites outside of Roswell in 1947, as told to me by a retired Air Force pilot some forty years ago. It may sound a bit "far fetched", but, in the end it is the only story I've ever heard that really makes sense of it all. After you read his tale, you will have to decide for yourself. I (for one) am a believer.
