Its very likely but in the in the most famous crash roswell. they actually stated in the paper the next day that a ufo had crashed and they had recovered bodies, but the day after that the military change the story and said it was a weather balloon. oops. but it is likely that some ships, like the spheres are unmanned or unaliened i should say
The UFO report has sparked some chuckles among controllers in O'Hare tower.
"To fly 7 million light years to O'Hare and then have to turn around and go home because your gate was occupied is simply unacceptable," said O'Hare controller and union official Craig Burzych.
To become an air traffic controller, a person must complete an FAA-approved education program; pass a pre-employment test; receive a school recommendation; meet the basic qualification requirements in accordance with Federal law; and achieve a qualifying score on the FAA-authorized pre-employment test. Candidates also must pass a medical exam, undergo drug screening, and obtain a security clearance before they can be hired.
David Brin touches on this idea, pointing out that self-replicating machines launched by different species might actually compete with one another (in a Darwinistic fashion) for raw material, or even have conflicting missions. Given enough variety of "species" they might even form a type of ecology, or - should they also have a form of artificial intelligence - a society. They may even mutate with untold thousands of "generations".

Planet earth is a few billion years old. I would be staggered if, in a million or several million years, we did not know how to travel to other solar systems and possibly galaxies. So, if other civilizations do exist, as the evidence indicates, it is not really that surprising some are much older than us and that they can get here.
