MUFON -Blockbuster Announcement, Researcher Has Located Two UFO Crash Sites

The Orlando Paranormal Examiner reported today that MUFON's Director, David MacDonald made his blockbuster announcement this afternoon. MUFON claims that researcher Harry Drew is convinced that he has located two UFO crash sites in the region of Kingman, Arizona. Drew said it was a triangular radar fix running at full boosted power that brought down "the craft" in 1953.

According to Drew, military personnel quickly retrieved and cleaned up the wreckage. The archaeologist and historian apparently included photos of the sites in his presentation, as well as presented information contradicting past accounts of the case and alleged crashes.

This is a departure and a contradiction of information that was originally presented by Raymond Fowler who first broke the details in 1973. Fowler claimed that his information was from Fritz Werner who was later identified to be Arthur Stansel.

Arthur Stansel

Stansel was employed by the Air Material command at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio. He had graduated from the University of Ohio in 1949 with a mechanical engineering degree and later tested aircraft engines for the Air force. 

Stansel said that he had been involved in a top-secret, preliminary survey of a wrecked UFO somewhere in the desert around Kingman. Stansel’s credentials seemed good and there was limited documentation, but nothing solid. Stansel had been caught telling several versions of the same story and claimed that when he had been drinking he tended to embellish stories. His credibility came into question as a result of his tales.

Dr. Eric Wang, who was suspected of leading a reverse engineering team on alien craft, headed the Installations Division within the Office of Special Studies where Stensel worked. Stansel signed a legal affidavit vouching to the honesty of his testimony, which was released by Ray Fowler in UFO Magazine, April 1976. 

Back in 1973, a man named Arthur Stansel – using the alias of Fritz Werner – provided the respected UFO researcher Ray Fowler with an extraordinary and controversial affidavit concerning nothing less than an alleged crashed UFO event in Kingman, Arizona two decades earlier. It went like this… “I, Fritz Werner, do solemnly swear that during a special assignment with the U.S. Air Force, on May 21, 1953, I assisted in the investigation of a crashed unknown object in the vicinity of Kingman, Arizona. The object was constructed of an unfamiliar metal which resembled brushed aluminum. It had impacted twenty inches into the sand without any sign of structural damage. It was oval and about 30 feet in diameter. An entrance way hatch had been vertically lowered and opened.”
Stansel/Werner continued: “It was about 3-1/2 feet high and 1-1/2 feet wide. I was able to talk briefly with someone on the team who did look inside only briefly. He saw two swivel seats, an oval cabin, and a lot of instruments and displays. A tent pitched near the object sheltered the dead remains of the only occupant of the craft. It was about 4 feet tall, dark brown complexion and had 2 eyes, 2 nostrils, 2 ears, and a small round mouth. It was clothed in a silvery, metallic suit and wore a skullcap of the same type material. It wore no face covering or helmet. I certify that the above statement is true by affixing my signature to this document this day of June 7, 1973.”

On May 21, 1953 Stansel was called away by his boss and told to report for a special assignment at the Indian Springs Air Force Base where he was joined by 15 other specialists. They were flown by military plane to Phoenix where they boarded a bus with blacked-out windows and rode for an estimated four hours. When they arrived at their destination somewhere southeast of Kingman in one of the washes of the Hulapai Mountains, they were met and briefed by an Air Force Colonel who told them they were to investigate the crash of a super-secret test vehicle. He and the others on the bus were told not to speak to each other under any circumstances.

Stansel's job was to determine the forward and vertical velocities of the vehicle when it impacted in the sand. Stansel was escorted to the site by military police. Two military arc-lights illuminated the saucer, which appeared to be two convex oval plates inverted over each other approximately 30 feet in diameter. The saucer was embedded in the sand about 20 inches. From this Stansel had determined that the saucer crashed at a velocity of 100 knots yet it had no dents, marks, or scratches on its burnished aluminum surface. It was constructed of dull silver metal like brushed aluminum.

Another specialist had gotten a look inside the craft as a 1.5 x 3.5 foot hatch was open revealing an oval interior cabin with two swivel seats and many instruments. Stansel saw one body recovered from the crash. It was humanoid, about 4 feet tall, with brown skin and wearing a silver-metallic flight suit.

Whilst they were back on the bus and being taken back they were made to sign the "Official Secrets" act and was told never to tell anyone about this incident.

Fowler made several checks as to the integrity of Stansel and everyone who knew him said that he was a man of considerable integrity and scientific ability.

Another story supporting the 1953 crash near Kingman came to UFO researcher Leonard Stringfield in 1977. A man who was in the National Guard at Wright Patterson claimed that he was witness to a delivery from a "crash site in Arizona" in 1953. He said that 3 bodies had been recovered and were packed in dry ice. They were 4ft tall, with large heads and brownish skin.

MUFON's first blockbuster announcement of the weekend was that they had been donated sixty volumes of meticulously kept paper of Ufologist and crash research Leonard Stringfields. So the Drew information and the Stringfield papers seem to go hand in hand.

It should be noted that several UFO investigators at the time that Fowler made this information public considered it a hoax. This was not that unusual in the 1960's & 70's, the government was releasing much in the way of confusing and intentional misinformation about credible UFO sightings and cases.

Also, researcher Harry Drew is going to have to come forward with some additional credible information if this case is going to be considered a landmark UFO case.
