ROSWELL, N.M. (KRQE) - Sixty five years ago Sunday, a legend was born out of Roswell New Mexico.
The infamous Roswell UFO.
On July 8th, 1947, the Roswell army air field issued a press release stating they recovered the remains of a "flying disc" after a crash on a Roswell ranch.
Later on the army retracted that statement saying it was really a weather balloon.
But years later, a number of retired Roswell army officers testified that the weather balloon story was a cover-up for something unexplainable.
Now each July, thousands of tourists come to see the sight and debate the evidence.
Experts and historians present their cases at the UFO Festival each year.
