One of my hobbies is auto racing.
My participation falls into the grassroots class, but I still follow the big F-1 teams.
Before a race these teams conduct non destructive testing on each and every part that goes into one of their cars, x rays, die testing for cracks,
etc... Some teams spend over 1 million dollars per race.
And the cars still break down.
I don't think a few UFO crashes means they aren't advanced, just that the laws of chance apply to everyone.
Ditto to that,
I'm a moto racer, desert, rally, emduros and trials, and no matter how well you are prepared, s happens.
In 2006 Honda spent $125 million to win the MOTOGP championship. I saw a thing this year where a cockpit capsule was crash tested with a driver
inside ,for the first time. I think the driver was jarno trulli. Cockpits have never been crash tested before because crash test dummies can't be
contorted into the driving position of an F1 driver.
With respect to UFO crashes, I have a couple of ideas as to why there seems to be an apparent decrease in UFO crashes over time.
My thought is the first craft that got here were essentially primative, analogous to an early moon probe in the 60's. Also the first craft to arrive
may not have been perfectly engineered for our environment, ie gravity and atmosphere composition and density.
When we first go to another planet we will have to make assumptions of what we will find and engineer the craft accordingly. If you miss the mark
on some intangible physical property, such as atmospheric density or
the strength of gravity, or atmospheric conditions such as wind speed , the vehicle will likely crash.
The other notion I had is that the typical ET, such as the greys, are engineered life forms with only limited intellect, and are not really suited to
autonomous decisions. If the stories are to be believed, then this idea isby the reinforced by the fact that the small greys have no digestive tract
or reproductive organs.
As to the seeming decrease in crashes through time, I think that the first craft here used very primative propulsion systems, and took a very very
long time to get here. During the long transit the home society advanced greatly. The newer generation craft arrived only a few years after the
initial expeditions, even though they left generations or millenia after the first ones.
