Don't think that we're losing it here at the Carefree Times and watching too many X-Files, but this story has been kicking around since October of 1947 and always makes a good Halloween tale. . . .
Several years ago, a grizzled miner came up to me one night in Cave Creek, after I emceed a "Meet the Candidates" forum, and what he said shocked me. .I only knew this man as "Pete the Miner" who worked the famous Mistress Mine near Seven Springs. "You're not going to believe this," he said, "but a friend of mine watched some government agents back in the late 1940's, recover and truck away wreckage of what looked like a flying saucer. He told me to look it up in the book by Timothy Good "Above Top Secret." Sure enough, on page 394, there it was, a description of a UFO crash just south of the present-day Carefree Highway. . . .

Thanks for posting that interesting report, Frank.
I might have a look to see if there have been any previous ATS threads regarding this incident so I can do some more reading about it.
Feel free to point me towards any other material you recommend regarding this incident.

Thanks for pointing me toward these two books. No problem picking up Good's Above Top Secret on eBay at a good price, but Scully's book, Behind The Flying Saucers might take a bit more looking. The only one available on eBay seems a little more worn than I would like, though it is priced reasonably.
1947 was a very good year.
