Whatever crashed in Roswell 50 years ago is a matter of dispute. But whatever happened then is making skeptics and believers flock this July to new Mexico to celebrate the most legendary of UFO crashes. Explore our database of people, locations, objects and dates via our scavenger hunt game, answer our UFO poll questions, post in our forums, browse the best Roswell links and check out Hollywood Online's top ten alien-invasion movies." COMMENT: I haunted Roswell Airfield last month. The Air Force renovated almost the whole base. Hangars and buildings now shining off in light desert-brown. A high new tower. And strange things are still going strong down there: Hangar # 1935, close to the fuel tank farm in the northwestern corner, has definitely become the best protected spot of the base: Big videocamera mounted on the roof, surveilling the paved access road. Building in outstanding dark grey. High barbed wire fence at the gate. Special keypad-access control unit there. Only about three minutes after me approaching that site to take pictures of Roving Sands' F-14 Tomcats coming in, a blue Ford with NM license plates comes crawling down the road. Two civilians. Black sunglasses. Binocs. They check me out! Being out of film-ammo, I jump back into my car, swing it around, pushing the pedal to the metal. Which makes Navy Intelligence-folks pull back swiftly and dash down Earl Cummings Boulevard (Navy? Because Roswell base was shape-shifted into a Navy aircraft carrier during Roving Sands exercise!) . The Air Force usually running the place seems particularly worried about THAT hangar (actually, it's two hangars built together).....No problemo to hang around the place's fenceline elsewhere..... And no, it's not the 24 hours alert craft site. So what is stored inside Hangar # 1935 at Roswell? -The Swiss Mountain Bat Batwing CMD, Switzerland
