Hangar 18 at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base is known to UFO researchers as a repository for crashed alien craft and foreign technology. For over half a century incredible stories of supposed downed UFOs, alien bodies, and underground cryogenic laboratories have been disclosed from the staff and government personnel who witnessed and even took part in recovery efforts. The Roswell crash, Aztec, NM and many more famous UFO crashes have all been linked to the top secret Hangar 18.
For more than half a century, similar stories have surfaced about UFO wreckage, alien bodies, secret underground cryogenic chambers, and a mysterious hangar at the base. Wright Field would grow and be renamed Wright-Patterson Air Force base, but questions about the base and its legendary Hangar 18 would remain. If these claims are true, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, one of the largest and most important in America’s military, could be ground zero for recovered UFO material. Not only was debris from many UFO crashes allegedly shipped to the base, but from the late 1940s until the end of the late 1960s, all reports regarding UFOs were conducted at Wright-Patterson for the military’s official UFO investigation Project Blue Book.
March 25, 1948, Aztec, New Mexico. What starts as a normal day for local oil workers, turns into an encounter with the unknown. As they approach the western edge of the mesa, a large silver object grabs their attention. When the oil workers got to the mesa there was a disc approximately 100 feet in diameter. Because the ship is found in tact, it appears to be a landing as opposed to a crash. Except for a shattered pothole, there isn’t any immediate sign of damage. Doug Noland reported to me he saw two bodies, through the porthole, slumped over. Within hours trucks arrive, supposedly from Camp Hale Colorado. It appears the U.S. government has another UFO incident to content with. According to the eye witnesses, the Army recovers between 14 and 16 badly burned alien bodies from the craft.
Wright-Patterson Air Force Base is honeycombed with below ground level facilities. These pits were dug in various configurations and were deep enough that if covered over would’ve made an ideal remote examination laboratory for somebody trying to examine alien artifacts that had been recovered elsewhere.
By interviewing various Air Force personnel who were supposedly granted access to the top secret underground vault, Collins felt he was able to confirm many of the rumors. The biggest kept secret was the huge cryogenics networks that were required to support and preserve these bodies, and I understand it was quite extensive. They were huge cryogenic storage tubes that these so called 3’4″ – 3’6″ aliens were kept in these canisters under cryogenic temperatures.
What actually lies beneath Wright-Patterson may be impossible to confirm. The Air Force Base operates under the highest security, keeping access to the base and these vaults secret from almost everyone, even their own. The secrecy goes all the way to the top. It’s a question of absolutely the highest level of classification that exists in the United States Government as far as I know. A formally classified memo from mid-July 1947 points to FBI director J. Edgar Hoover showing immense interest in a retrieved craft, and his frustration about being kept out of the loop – “We must insist upon full access to discs recovered. The Army grabbed it and would not let us have it for closer examination.” The memo was written just days after the Roswell New Mexico wreckage was taken to Wright Field. If J. Edgar Hoover couldn’t get access to the contents of Hangar 18, how high did the secrecy go. In a 1994 interview with Larry King on TNT, Senator Barry Goldwater detailed his attempt to visit Hangar 18, “I think at Wright-Patterson, if you could get into certain places you’d find out what the Air Force and the government does know about UFOs.”
Perhaps many of the legends about Hangar 18 are actually a cover-up for top secret military programs. I think it’s important to keep in mind that the government, in association with Air Force OSI counter intelligence division, would really like to extend the alien myth as a cover to hide their own deep black programs. Well it means that they want everyone to believe that what you’re seeing out there is extraterrestrial and we do not have the technology to duplicate what we’re seeing in the skies. I think to the extent that they can confuse or disinform folks about flying discs and make it look like a terrestrial innovation, the more they’ll do that. It’s in the government’s best interest to distribute disinformation if you want to keep and secret, secret.
