UFO Documentary Mexico, UFO crush and UFO sightings in Mexico
According to UFOlogists, local residents reported a mid-air collision between a UFO and a small airplane near the town of Coyame on August 25, 1974 followed by a military investigation and cover up. However historians say that such “UFO reports” were likely prompted by the 1974 crash and military recovery of a Cessna aircraft involved in drug trafficking.
In Coyame, Mexico, 1974, in the State of Chihuahua, an unidentified flying object (UFO) collided with a small plane. Both the U.S. government and the Mexican government responded to the crash. The series of events that followed would stay buried until the early 2000s when Mexico became a hotspot for UFO sightings and investigators flocked there, uncovering even more bizarre stories.
On Aug. 25, 1974, a small plane lifted off from El Paso, Texas, heading toward Mexico City.
While the small civilian plane continued on its heading, U.S. Air Defense Radar was tracking a UFO heading over the Gulf of Mexico towards Corpus Christi, Texas; this was at approximately 10:07 p.m. Traveling faster than 2,000 mph, the authorities assumed it was a meteor. But that changed when the object suddenly changed course.
The object slowed and descended with a new heading towards Coyame, a peaceful desert town about 40 miles south of the U.S. border with a population of only about 2,500, and eventually the object disappeared from radar screens. Nearly an hour later, a civilian radio station announced an aircraft had crashed near Coyame.
The next morning, Mexican authorities began a search and recovery of the downed civilian plane. At approximately 10:35 a.m., Mexican recovery teams spotted the wreckage from the air. Mexican authorities then announced another crash site just a few miles away. Moments later, the authorities issued a radio silence on the search. U.S. authorities offered assistance to help clean up and recover. The offer was declined.
Despite the refusal, Fort Bliss on the American side of the border, near El Paso, was assembling a recovery team and continued to monitor Mexican recover efforts via air surveillance. These events and those that follow were pieced together by researchers Noe Torres and Ruben Uriarte in their book “Mexico’s Roswell.”
Torres and Uriarte had as their primary source a mysterious document titled the “Deneb Report,” which was anonymously sent to UFO researchers in the 1990s. Other sources include eye-witness accounts from local residents who saw the mid-air collision. The authors also received an anonymous post on their Wikipedia page giving the names and serial numbers of some Mexican soldiers and some U.S. officials allegedly involved in the incident. The authors are in the process of following up on these leads, which they say have proved promising thus far, though they are unwilling to release the names yet they said during a “Podcast UFO” interview in June.
On Friday, March 5, Mexican Air Force pilots using infrared equipment to search for drug-smuggling aircraft recorded 11 unidentified objects over southern Campeche. Mexico’s Defense Department issued a press release on May 12 accompanied by videotape that showed moving bright lights at 11,500 feet. Mexican UFOlogist Jaime Maussan interpreted the videotape as “proof of alien visitation”, however science writer and skeptic Michael Shermer was critical of witness accounts that “varied wildly”, saying “it was like a fisherman’s tale, growing with each retelling”, while other experts suggested the lights were most likely burn off flares from oil platforms.
