“Hoax or not?”

Heads up: This listing is merely for historical purposes. There's no plaque, no memorial, just an old Wells Fargo bank. Don't go in expecting to find pieces of a crashed alien craft. Though considered a hoax by some UFO investigators, there is an interesting account of a UFO crash that comes to us from Arizona. The facts are certainly worth a look. Famed researcher Raymond Fowler first broke the details of this event of May 20, 1953 in 1973, although it was known to UFO investigator Richard Hall as early as 1964. Fowler stated that his information came from engineer "Fritz Werner," later identified as Arthur G. Stancil. Stancil graduated from Ohio University in 1949 and was first employed by Air Material Command at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio as a mechanical engineer on testing Air Force aircraft engines. 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 Arthur worked. Stancil signed a legal affidavit vouching to the honesty of his testimony, which was released by Ray Fowler in UFO Magazine, April 1976. He was working for a company that had a government contract at a nuclear site in Nevada. He was summoned by his boss on 5-21-53, and sent on a "secret" assignment. After being flown to Phoenix, Arizona, he was placed on a bus with blacked out windows, and taken to a point some four hours drive northwest of the city of Phoenix proper. The location was supposedly near the city of Kingman, Arizona.

Old Town Kingman Arizona plays a part in this UFO story, but it is not central to to the story. The first of three UFOs to go down 'near' Kingman in May 1953 (according to first-hand eye witnesses) made a forced landing without damage on May 18, 1953. Disinformation about this UFO generally claims it was a crash, which it was not, and supposedly happened on May 20th and/or May 21st, which it did not, because the UFO had already landed days before on May 18th! Factually accurate information at: www.kingmanufocrashes.com. .

I live in kingman. I'm a real prophet of God. I was taught about flying saucers developed for the us air force. 1913 patent by Nickola Tesla, how to build one. Well the air force did. It's a very high transformer system. Light flows into the bottom and exits out the bottom or sides. Notice the light emitters on the bottom; this gives piloting stability so up and down wobbling doesn't occur. Or, the craft can turn side ways and crash. Very powerful light flow into the bottom out to the sides of the craft, so light is pushed away, this becomes light and radar hiding from viewing.

Don't go! My son says don't waste your time..... We went there only to find very old, unkept buildings. No marker - just an old building near a Wells Fargo bank.

Drove through downtown Kingman to the location pinned on this map but saw nothing. I thought there would be a marker of some type but apparently not. Lame.
