Interesting video documentary…..first I’ve seen one told from an Australian production perspective on the subject of ufology. I was enlightened by
the Australian events.
I do have a question about one of the American events revisited though.
Wasn’t the purported 1948 Aztec, New Mexico UFO incident proved to be a hoax?
It’s my understanding that the whole incident was dreamt up by two con men wanting to swindle folks by selling “alien technology” based on a
crash that never truly happened and selling gizmos and gadgets at a very high cost to find Oil, Gold, etc…
Here are the 2 supporting articles published some time back ultimately exposing the incident as a hoax. They tell of this grand film flam of the UFO
story hoax and and it’s hoaxters.
J. P. Cahn's September 1952 masterpiece in TRUE Magazine, "The Flying Saucers and the Mysterious Little Men"
J. P. Cahn's 1956 followup in TRUE Magazine, "Flying Saucer Swindlers"
The story then propagated in Aztec NM throughout the years, not for its hoax, but for its UFO “crash” cash value to try and compete with Roswell
for tourists, festivities, etc…..
It’s not apparent in the documentary that the Aztec, NM UFO crash segment was portrayed as a telling of a hoax, but as for possibly a real event.
Did due diligence fall between the cracks? Was the documentary vid production folks not aware?
(Perhaps I’m seeing it all wrong)
