    The Roswell Army Air Field (RAAF) public information officer Walter Haut issued a press release stating that personnel from the field's Operations Group had recovered a "flying disc" which had crashed on a nearby ranch. After the story began to gain popularity with the public, the US military stated that it was merely a conventional weather balloon. In the 1970s, ufologists began promoting a variety conspiracy theories, claiming that an alien spacecraft had crash-landed, and that the extraterrestrial occupants had been recovered by the military, which then engaged in a massive cover-up.
