In 1947 the subject of UFOs literally exploded onto every front-page of every newspaper in the country. The first event was pilot Kenneth Arnold reporting to witness nine UFO craft moving in formation over Mount Rainier in Washington state. Mere weeks later the Roswell Crash occurred where the United States military acknowledged possession of a crashed UFO craft only to recant their claim 24 hours later. Those two events changed the way people viewed the subject of UFOs. Even United States Air Force General Nathan Farragut Twining acknowledged that UFOs were real and he believed that they were beyond the capabilities the United States had at that time.
