Regarding UFOs and the 1940s, (foo fighters or their analogs) were seen as early as 1941. The first detonation of a nuclear weapon didn't take place until July 16, 1945 (code name Trinity). Granted, a lot of research took place during the preceding years, but UFOs have been described in literature for millennia. It seems to me the connection here is rather tenuous.

Usually I think the comments on the Ancient Aliens TV show are pretty stupid, but they bring up a good and glaringly obvious point - the wave of UFO sightings and incidents of the 'First Kind', coincide exactly with the development of the nuclear bomb. The first nuclear bomb was tested supposedly on July 16,1945 in Alamogordo, New Mexico.
I think this gives us a lot insight into the intentions of our alien visitors -
The insight is that they are concerned about what these nuclear bombs can potentially do. So they are concerned, they are not here on an offensive mission or one of acquisition. For all we know, they are not alien at all and may have been living side by side with us either at bases on the moon or in deep waters.
More evidence to support this point is that they (during that era, and even later) have been found frequenting military bases, and in some cases have disarmed nuclear warheads perhaps to make a point of their intentions.
Maybe it is the case that a nuclear bomb marks a point in the development of a planetary civilization where they are then allowed to interact with the civilization. Maybe before that they are not allowed to interfere, which is the same as the protocol of Star Fleet/The United Federation of Planets in the TV series/movie Star Trek. The Prime Directive "prohibits Starfleet personnel from interfering with the internal development of alien civilizations. This conceptual law applies particularly to civilizations which are below a certain threshold of technological, scientific and cultural development". - Prime Directive
This does not explain their disappearance or reduced activity in recent decades. They have been found frequenting volcanoes in Mexico, a decade or more ago but not too much other than that.
after that initial, if not frenzied rush of visits, the tactics turned to abductions.
