My question is; How many ET vehicles have crash landed on the most pristine planet in the universe?
These cats come from who knows how far and through the most hostile dangers of space travel just to crash?
When the human built aircraft have a better safety record than the galaxy traversing ET, that’s not a good sign for the tech gains we can expect.
ET says, “hop in and let me take you to our home.” Then as the door shuts you read “Pinto” or “Yugo” on the frame.
Also, heaven forbid these crashed vehicles are from DIFFERENT places/times. What are the odds different ET species are arriving to Earth at the same needle’s eye window of time just to crash?
Or, the SAME species sends multiple vehicles because the others crashed and didn’t report in and THEY crash too.
Humanity’s luck? These ETs are the equivalent to the Snoats brothers and they’re escapees that saucer jacked a model they couldn’t land.
If ET exists in our locale/time then my guess is there may be a single crash that took place and likely it was unmanned.
I’d prefer the grand arrival versus the clandestine “we are not to be detected but we keep getting Scooby Doo’d and crash where only governments recover the craft” scenarios.
Any ET observing/monitoring humans for more than a week that choose to partner up with “government” are beings that are behaving more/just like political humans….I’ll pass.
Maybe it’s my human cynicism but my expectations of an advanced species are greatly diminished if they can’t arrive without crashing.

"Lets pretend to crash some of our crappier vehicles on Earth so that the hairless apes will study them and eventually come out of their low tech age.
Also, this indirect approach will be a soft way to tell them that they are not alone. With their current ego-based mentality, they would just resort to panic and fear mongering if we just landed and said hi.
We might as well throw in some of our worker androids in the craft so they understand that the craft is not from some other planetary tribe. But lets make sure the androids are physically small and weak as to not seem intimidating. In fact, lets make the androids about the same size as the children of the hairless apes."
There is a third option to "believe or don't believe."

people speak of the wilson davis info about ufo programs dealing with the govt and private sector but there has been alot of interesting talk from the very beginning, first off either you believe this info or you dont, theres no proof anywhere just evidentiary value, it comes down to whats being said and whos saying it and whether you believe them or not, its not what you think but what you know, tell us what you know

Good stuff, NASA was sent all sorts of junk people found thinking they were satellites or meteorites [usually were meteo-wrongs]. The DoD also had an active worldwide surreptitious retrieval operation for any such falls, which AFAIK didn't involve NASA anywhere. The Russian-origin stuff that the public sent to NASA was usually identified because the components were built to even metric measurements. Andrew ["Drew"] Potter was the guy in charge in the 1980s, he had the stuff piled all around his office in the Planetary Science building.
