if the so call "Crash's" are true, 99.9% of the times it would be us shotting them down.

Yet, it seem to happen quite often, although I assume that 99.9% of the reports are fakes. If I remember correctly, the propulsion system of ufos is somehow a nuclear reactor. IF one crashed, wouldn't there also be tons of atomic resedue to be measured?

my belief is on how they could crash, is that they either crash my a slight malfunction (i bet even they get them), we somehow shoot them out of the sky, or the aliens were sent on kamikaze, but miss their targets.

Tree things:
- there's no thing perfect,
- there's no evidence that alien ship had crashed,
- there's no evidence that alien ships exist.

You sound like a skeptic. Am I right?

That being said, why do you believe any craft crashed at all? To me this just seems like you going out of your way to make an attempt at making believers look foolish.

To answer your question

With the premis they are/were physical craft, I have read that the "supposed ALIEN craft " were goin down primarily do to our RADAR. Early in the 40's and 50's we started testing it and allegedly it had an extremely adverse effect on the systems of these particular craft. Kept knockin' em out of the sky.. apparently they adapted but it took a long time. Haven't heard of any crashes lately... kind of lends more credence to the "man-made" theory. Either way.. supposedly that what was making them crash.




ra·dar (rdär) n. 1. A method of detecting distant objects and determining their position, velocity, or other characteristics by analysis of very high frequency radio waves reflected from their surfaces. 2. The equipment used in such detection. [ra(dio) d(etecting) a(nd) r(anging).]



Heres an intersting tid-bit:




… Many rightly wonder why an ET vehicle with the ability to traverse light years through the cosmos would arrive all the way to Earth – only to crash.

How is it that an interplanetary people with such advanced aerial technology could come to such grief on the July-baked desert floor?


… Little known is that the US Government at that time had maintained an interconnected “beyond the fence” radar network. This secret network had served two purposes. It had helped to protect White Sands Proving Ground, Sandia National Lab and Los Alamos National Lab from aerial intrusion. It was also used for the “far-field” tracking of missiles launched from White Sands. Errant V-2′s as early as May of 1947 had crashed their way to Mexico. There was no way that wayward rocket launches could ever get into the hands of civilians or foreign nationals. And our national laboratories needed to be protected from any possible foreign strikes from the air.

This covert “outside the fence” radar program helped to provide maximum coverage as it monitored these vitally important skies. Some of these radar facilities were mobile, highly experimental and lacked more exact “control” of beam path and range. Some of their designs did not have the quality to “contain the energy” as more permanent installations did. If such radar beams played a role in the crash, the radar operators likely did not know that the radar had helped to bring down the craft. The radar was not meant to be used as a weapon. It was an unwitting and non-offensive event.






The radar project involved highly-classified radar installations that were located at remote off-sites. Towers and arrays were sometimes even sited on private property. Area ranchers and locals knew of the existence of these radar installations (usually hidden in wooded or hilly areas) but said nothing out of a sense of patriotic duty and perhaps through financial inducements.

This is a little discussed piece of post WWII history – even by military historians. Such radar systems were found in places like tiny El Vado, NM. One was called “The Continental Divide.” There was a radar station located just north of US 60 about 45 miles west of Socorro. Another site was a radar tower on the road to the spread of NM rancher Marvin Ake, 10 miles south of State Rd. 60 between Magdelena and Datil. Yet another was near Oscura Park, some miles just outside of White Sands itself. Given how we know that UFOs are reported to be able to disrupt our cars, TVs and radios through their emanated frequencies and radiations – isn’t it possible that the reverse could be true?


Could our technology have (in some as yet unknown way) affected their technology? According to a treatise entitled “Electromagnetic Compatibility“: “After World War II the military became increasingly concerned with the effects of nuclear electromagnetic pulse (NEMP), lightning strike and even high-powered radar beams on mobile vehicles of all kinds and especially on aircraft electrical systems.” Could a unique and dynamic interplay of lightning, powerful radar beams and the ET craft’s own generated energy field have in some way brought it down?

Even the most advanced technology we have at the moment can have its own issues. There is always bugs and faults in most things. The highly advanced a technology the more highly advanced the problems can be.

Crashed UFOs? Where? Can you provide any proof that alien UFOs crashed?

Probably what crashed were some top secret craft being tested by Boeing's Phantom Works or Lockheed Martin's Skunk Works!!

I imagine they aren't perfect and just like us things go wrong malfunctions in there craft may not happen as often but probley do..I'm sure they have there own issues and problems just like us i don't care how advanced they are...

You're making the assumption that technology ever reaches a point where malfunctions can not happen. Personally, I don't think technology how ever advanced ever reaches a state of perfection and even beings of advanced intellect probably have to deal with Murphy's law. Of course that is assuming that crashed UFOs are of extraterrestrial origin in the first place. Peace be with you.

There are many storys of high powered radar causing navigation or other problems with ufos back in the 50s.

I think it can be read at the FBI Vault.

There you go I found it.

vault.fbi.gov...


Also there are 16 other ufo related pdf files which you might find interesting.

In the Cosmic universe it's generally called 'Alien Error'!!

The idea that radar would case interference sounds extremely silly. Radar uses radio waves, something that omnipresent in the universal environment. One must wonder how they could make it from planet to planet if radio waves gives them problems, when there are objects out there that give off far more powerful signals. They must lose entire fleets any time a nearby star lets off a solar flare. And with the proliferation of objects giving off radio signals, radio, TV, weather/airport radar, wifi, why aren't we seeing more crashes?

You do realize that the Guy Hottel memo is referring to a hoax, right? IssacKoi authored a lengthy thread about the subject.

Well, if the aliens are anything like my wife was, they are probably driving with their knee, drinking a starbucks, talking on a cellphone AND putting makeup on at the same time.

Just sayin...

Please don't be so pessimistic. It was a legitimate questions and thought I throw it out there; nothing more intended. And yes, I believe that they are out there and probably have visited us before



Thanks to all for your replys! Some very interesting suggestions that I never considered

If you believe that ET craft (what I presume you actually meant when you said "UFOs" in your question) have crashed here on Eath, then what difference does it make why? The important thing is that you believe it, right? If you don't believe that ET craft have crashed on Earth then your question is based on a false premise and is invalid.

Exactly...

It is obvious by their high speeds and nature of manoevering, that the disc-shaped craft are not manually piloted. If you shoot a high-frequency radio signal at them (RADAR) it could cause a disruption of their automated guidance or navigation system. That's why the first UFO 'crash' was right around the time the US military started using RADAR.

To the Modern day African Bushmen the F-22 is an example of extremely advanced technology.
Yet, they have crashed. Nobody is perfect not even ET.

If in fact ETs are visiting us.

If you've ever seen the mini-series Taken, it is suggested that the aliens didn't crash accidentally. They crashed on purpose so that an alien object could be discovered and passed on through the ages.

I don't believe that aliens crash accidentally, I believe that they crash intentionally so as to get our attention.

Of course, this is all based on an exceptionally well done mini-series, so I could be wrong, but it is possible

your question is quite general in nature, and the answer will be just as general. What are all the possibilities?

We shoot them down in some fashion, a unknown enemy shoots them down, or they have mechanical or bio mechanical errors.

The one possibility never discussed is they crash intentionally, with a covert "Trojan Horse" agenda.
