Wilcox called RAAF Major Jesse Marcel and a "man in plainclothes" accompanied Brazel back to the ranch where more pieces were picked up. "[We] spent a couple of hours Monday afternoon [July 7] looking for any more parts of the weather device", said Marcel. "We found a few more patches of tinfoil and rubber."
As described in the July 9, 1947 edition of the Roswell Daily Record,
The balloon which held it up, if that was how it worked, must have been 12 feet long, [Brazel] felt, measuring the distance by the size of the room in which he sat.
The rubber was smoky gray in color and scattered over an area about 200 yards in diameter. When the debris was gathered up, the tinfoil, paper, tape, and sticks made a bundle about three feet long and 7 or 8 inches thick, while the rubber made a bundle about 18 or 20 inches long and about 8 inches thick. In all, he estimated, the entire lot would have weighed maybe five pounds.
There was no sign of any metal in the area which might have been used for an engine, and no sign of any propellers of any kind, although at least one paper fin had been glued onto some of the tinfoil. There were no words to be found anywhere on the instrument, although there were letters on some of the parts.
Considerable Scotch tape and some tape with flowers printed upon it had been used in the construction. No strings or wires were to be found but there were some eyelets in the paper to indicate that some sort of attachment may have been used.en.wikipedia.org...
In preparation for seeing Tom Carey at a local UFO conference in 2011, I listened to a few podcasts where he was interviewed. Seeing him talk in person was much worse. Carey seemed to be a name-dropper that was far more interested in film and TV deals than research. Most appalling to me, he said he was not interested in researching anything but Roswell.
I take that back, the most appalling part was when Carey described how he and Schmitt kept badgering Walter Haut to talk about seeing alien bodies. At that time, I didn't know about how they'd typed up a "deathbed confession" for the old man to sign.
Strictly speaking on the construction and how this spacecraft was built as described by Jesse Marcel and Mac Brazel:
-Small lightweight beams.
-Pieces no more than 3 or 4 feet in length.
Compared to RAWIN type targets of the 40's:
-Small lightweight beams.
-RAWIN targets were generally no more than 4 feet.
Now, given those facts, wouldn't it be an astronomical coincidence that a spacecraft from another world, piloted by alien beings crash and:
A) Does so in the same general area where other RAWIN targets have crashed.
B) Is constructed exactly as our Earthly RAWIN targets of the 40's.
If parts of a B-2 bomber from 2014 crashed in 1947 Roswell, the construction of that plane wouldn't be comparable to anything in 1947. And that's with a human built aircraft only 67 years in our own future. Every single piece of crash debris mentioned in Roswell is relatable to RAWIN type of construction of that era.

that's exactly what a replacement from the Aviary or the military-occult-complex would say...

The forensics on the telegram he held in the photos clinched it for me...
The details will never be revealed but the gist is ...
Something E.T. was recovered..
My first clue there was a problem with Marcel's story was when he said the "indestructible" foil was found in many small pieces all over the debris field. Somehow the idea of it being indestructible yet being in many small pieces posed a big problem for my logic.

A story that snowballed after Friedman interviewed Jesse Marcel in 1978.
Over time, it became apparent that Roswell as crashed ET craft was a slut full of holes and infected with various forms of disgusting deceit
