Roswell Alien SpacecraftMac Brazel worked as a foreman on the J. B. Foster Ranch near Roswell, New Mexico, when he discovered a strange object on the ranch in July, 1947. The object had crashed on the hillside. The debris included sheet foil material and a round dish shaped object. Personnel from the Roswell Army Air Field, later renamed Walker Air Force Base, had been looking for their test vehicle. They knew it had landed in the vicinity of the Foster Ranch. Army personnel went to the ranch where Brazel showed them the crash site. Brazel had been taking material from the crash site and storing it at the ranch. He had shown pieces around town and given some pieces to friends as souvenirs. He was not very cooperative with the Army personnel, so they took him to the base where he was detained for three days. The Army got most of the parts back from the crashed experimental package and released Brazel. This photograph is claimed to have been taken at the crash site, but it is most likely a fake. No official photographs are known to exist.
