Here is an article I just saw on the Mufon website.
Anthony Bragalia writes, "In an interview conducted in the 1990's, former Wright-Patterson Air Force Base Brigadier General Arthur Exon confirmed
the existence of the Roswell metal reports." Exon, the Base Commander of Wright Patterson in the 1960s, related that he was privy to some of the
details on the composition of the crash debris and the variety of tests that were performed on it. Astonishingly, Exon stated of the debris: "It was
Titanium and some other metal they knew about, and the processing was somehow different." Of course, special "processing" of Titanium and the
"other metal" that "they knew about" (Nickel) is required to create Nitinol. Exon added tellingly, "And it wouldn't surprise me if the material
wasn't still around, certainly the reports are." Exon was likely referring to the Battelle Progress Reports on memory metal done for Wright
Patterson in the late 1940's.
Air Force General George Schulgen (who led Intelligence at the Pentagon at the time of the Roswell incident) authored a previously-marked "secret"
draft memo on the flying saucer issue on October 30, 1947- about four months after the crash. In the verified version of this memo is found a section
entitled "Items of Construction." Schulgen instructs his officers to be aware of flying objects and their materials of construction. He specifically
notes the "unusual fabrication methods to achieve extreme lightweight" and that the material is of a "composite construction...using various
combinations of metals." Schulgen is describing precisely some of the very characteristics of Nitinol. Just like the Roswell debris material, it is
an "extreme lightweight" intermetallic alloy. As a novel "composite construction," it is created by an "unusual fabrication" method that "uses
a combination of metals"- perhaps like Titanium and Nickel. Thanks to Anthony Bragalia
