Here is a overview of some of the most famous ufo crashes in history.

1908 June 30th: Tunguska, Siberia
At 7am on 30th June 1908 near the lower Tunguska River, Siberia, a large explosion occurred. The explosion was so massive that it caused damage 400 miles away, and was heard even further. Even the heat that came out from the explosion was felt hundreds of miles away. For several nights all over northern Europe, the sky glowed enough to light the street of London. Many of the witnesses to the original crash spoke of seeing and oval-shaped mass moving across the sky, as well as seeing the object change course, and of having a very low speed.

1897 April 17th: Aurora, Texas
The story claimed that a strange airship had appeared over the town of Aurora. The craft then apparently crashed into a windmill tower and exploded. Some of the material recovered had strange hieroglyphic symbols on it. Also amongst the wreckage was that of an 'alien' lifeform which the townsfolk buried in the local cemetery.

1952 Sept 9th: Spitzbergen Island, Norway
In June 1952 stories were beginning to come out in the German Press about an alleged UFO crash on the island of Spitzbergen, off the northern coast of Norway. The stories reported that 6 Norwegian jets were on an exercise flying over the Hinlopen Straits when radio contact was lost due to heavy static interference. At the same time the local radar post at Narvik, was showing a distorted signal of the jet fighters as well as the presence of a UFO.

1953 May 21st: Kingman, Arizona
It is rumoured that a UFO crashed on the 20th May 1953 near the desert town of Kingman, Arizona. Werner claims to have been working on a special contract at a nuclear test site in Nevada. On the 21st May he was called away by his boss and told that he would be going on a 'special assignment'. He was flown to Phoenix and then taken in a bus with blacked out windows to a location north-west of Phoenix, he and the others on the bus were told not to speak to each other under any circumstances.

When they arrived at their destination they were taken to see a 30ft disc embedded into the sand. The craft was lit up my military arc-lights. The object appeared to of been constructed of an aluminium-like material. There was a small hole in the craft, which appeared to be the result of a crash.

1957 Sept 14th: Ubatuba, Brazil
One of the few cases of a crashed UFO and physical evidence is that of the crash that occurred on the beach of Ubatuba, Brazil in September 1957. Two of the three samples were sent to APRO, whilst the third was retained by Brazilian UFOlogist Dr Olavo Fontes for further study. The remaining samples where used with varying results, until the samples became too small to of been any use in tests. APRO still has one small remaining sample in their vaults.

1962 April 18th: Las Vegas, U.S.A
One of the most intriguing crash reports to have surfaced over the years is a report of a crash that occurred in the Air Force Base of Nellis AFB, Nevada in 1962. For many years this case was thought of nothing more than a rumour amongst UFO researchers. However, reports and statements from many eyewitnesses slowly emerged, enough so, for researchers to start digging for more information. It was claimed the object came down near Eureka, and at the same time the town experienced a total blackout. However, the object was then seen to take off again, and as it did the power came back.

After reading some of these historic ufo crashes, whats your perspective? Do you think all of it is a big hoax or maybe there is some truth to them?

While where at it, I will add Shag Harbour in NovaScotia, Canada. It a pretty well documented event. It has been recognized by the Canadian Government. I'd like to go diving there and see for myself, it would be nice .

The Shag Harbour UFO Incident was the documented impact of an unknown large object into Shag Harbour, Nova Scotia, in October 1967. The crash was investigated by various Canadian government agencies, and at least one underwater search was launched to recover remains of the object. The Canadian government declared that no known aircraft was involved and the source of the crash remains unknown to this day. It is one of very few cases where governmental agency documents have formally declared an unidentified flying object was involved. Several interviewed military witnesses, including a diver involved in an attempted recovery, have claimed an alien spacecraft was responsible. It was also claimed by several of the witnesses that the U.S. military was involved in recovery attempts. The case was also briefly investigated by the U.S. Condon Committee UFO study, which offered no explanation~.


It looks like there's a UFO symposium this summer. Nova Scotia is a very nice place. Go Tourism Nova Scotia

Im sorry i didn't see the Roswell crash, that count to put in the list? or maybe im just blind from the tiredness.

Nice post, S&F.

PS: Answering the question:
No, i believe is not all hoaxs, only the official story its was distorted for political convenients, anyone knows how the stories ends, swamp gas+crazy people! lol

We have all the facts we need, what we need now is put all together in one place and make a official statement to the public to put pressure on every government around the world.
Such attempt was made in the Disclose Project but wasn't enough people and material.

1908 June 30th: Tunguska, Siberia

Even the heat that came out from the explosion was felt hundreds of miles away. For several nights all over northern Europe, the sky glowed enough to light the street of London. Many of the witnesses to the original crash spoke of seeing and oval-shaped mass moving across the sky, as well as seeing the object change course, and of having a very low speed.

Actually, the scientific evidence points that the tunguska event is a result of an asteroid impacting the earth and the scientists have been successful enough to find the impact crater as lake cheko.

In June 2007 it was announced that scientists from the University of Bologna had identified a lake in the Tunguska region as a possible impact crater from the event. They do not dispute that the Tunguska body exploded mid-air, but believe that a one meter fragment survived the explosion and impacted the ground. Lake Cheko is a small bowl shaped lake approximately 8 kilometres north-north-west of the hypocenter.[25] The hypothesis has been disputed by other impact crater specialists.[26] A 1961 investigation had dismissed a modern origin of Lake Cheko, saying that the presence of metres thick silt deposits at the lake's bed suggests an age of at least 5,000 years,[17] however more recent research suggests that only a meter or so of the sediment layer on the lake bed is "normal lacustrine sedimentation", a depth indicating a much younger lake, about 100 years.[27] Acoustic-echo soundings of the lake floor provide support for the hypothesis that the lake was formed by the Tunguska event. The soundings revealed a conical shape for the lake bed, which is consistent with an impact crater.[28] Magnetic readings indicate a possible meter-sized chunk of rock below the lake's deepest point, which may be a fragment of the colliding body.[28] Finally, the lake's long axis points to the hypocenter of the Tunguska explosion, about 7.0 km away.[28] Work is still being done at Lake Cheko to determine its origins.[29]

And the UFO crash is just a hypothesis.

Speculative hypotheses

UFO crash

Various UFO aficionados have claimed that the Tunguska event was the result of an exploding alien spaceship or even an alien weapon going off to "save the Earth from an imminent threat". These claims appear to originate from a science fiction story penned by Soviet engineer Alexander Kazantsev in 1946, in which a nuclear-powered Martian spaceship, seeking fresh water from Lake Baikal, blew up in mid-air. This story was inspired by Kazantsev's visit to Hiroshima in late 1945.

Many events in Kazantsev's tale were subsequently confused with the actual occurrences at Tunguska. The nuclear-powered UFO hypothesis was adopted by TV drama critics Thomas Atkins and John Baxter in their book The Fire Came By (1976). The 1998 television series The Secret KGB UFO Files (Phenomenon: The Lost Archives), broadcast on Turner Network Television, referred to the Tunguska event as "the Russian Roswell" and claimed that crashed UFO debris had been recovered from the site. In 2004, a group from the Tunguska Space Phenomenon Public State Fund claimed to have found the wreckage of an alien spacecraft at the site.[40] The proponents of the UFO hypothesis have never been able to provide any significant evidence for their claims.

As you can see, there is no evidence as such for proving the alien space ship crash theory.

I always thought the asteroid theory for tunguska was the hypothesis. This thing was changing course before it crashed.

Hey great topic

But you forgot to put one of the best ones......

1965 Dec 9th: Kecksburg, Pennsylvania, U.S.A On 9th December 1965 hundreds of witnesses in Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania observed a UFO crash. It first appeared to be nothing more than a spectacular meteorite but 30 years on it is still a source of much controversy amongst UFO researchers. In March 1966, UFO researcher Ivan Sanderson compiled a detailed account from various eyewitnesses, and soon realised that there was more to this story than that of a simple meteorite.

His findings indicated that the object showed a clear trajectory, moving from north-west to south-east. Its total visible journey lasted no more than 6 minutes, which indicated a speed far too slow for a meteor. Sanderson calculated a speed of only around 1,000 mph.

Not all the eyewitnesses were located on the ground at the time of the sighting, there were also several pilots who spoke of being buffeted by shock waves as the large bright object sped by. This was strange as most meteorites are observed several thousands of feet above most commercial aircraft. There were also claims of shock waves and sonic booms reported from witnesses on the ground.

heh, I figured that out, this website aint so hard after all.

Oh it's from your here of course; same page

Since the meteorite was disintegrating during its entry into earth, fragments will break off and fly in all directions, and the oval shape might be due to the burning of the meteor in the atmosphere, which will create a flame oval in shape(similar to the ones comets have).
