I too used to find the reports of so many crashes to be the single biggest problem in completely believing in UFOs as being ultra-advanced Aliens.
Since then, I have arrived at a few reasonable explanations to this rather peculiar "fact", and they include:
1. Most of the craft that crash are more akin to what we would consider probes (while the real crew/mothership/etc) stays at a safe distance. Thus
these crashing craft simply aren't very valuable as far as the true Aliens that sent them are concerned. And tho a lot of assume They wouldn't want us
to have access to their tech- maybe they dont care, don't think we could possibly understand it, etc.
As for the little greys that seem to make up the majority of reports of crew (dead or alive), it's the same thing - they simply aren't valued
very highly by those that engineered them and send them to various worlds to explore. Some people have asked why advanced aliens wouldn't build robots
to do the dangerous exploring & monitoring: I think that's exactly what they have done, but instead of clunky mechanical analogues to biological
thinking beings, they went ahead and engineered a servant or biological bot as its far more efficient, reliable and flexible. Plus once you get a good
recipe down, you can make as many as you want. The fact that "They" don't recover/rescue these litte graylings (that I read about anyway) says a lot
about how They value living beings, created by them or not.
2. As another poster said, Advanced still doesn't mean perfect. Exploring alien worlds would - I think- be very dangerous, and lots could go wrong
(and apparently does!). Who knows what new and unexpected phenomena, natural or manufactured, is waiting for you on a strange new world?
3. Perhaps our technology is either more advanced than we think, or perhaps primitive enough that they simply aren't protected by advanced technology.
In other words, you can walk around with an iPod, iPhone, bullet proof vests, radiation suit, etc - but if some dude decides to clock you in the head
with a brick, your tech is pretty useless!
4. Their purposes and methodology are, naturally, alien to us and we simply don't know how they think or what they value. As someone else posted, it
could even be intentional, at least some of the time. After all, what better way to infiltrate high security military institutions than by making your
subjects take you right thru the defenses right where you and your monitoring equipment want to go...
