Whatever was considered to be a myth about UFOs in the past is proved to be real now. Three very important incidents occurred in the history of UFOlogy in 1947: Roswell Crash, Kenneth Arnold Sighting, and the Twining Memo. Everyone is familiar with the first two incidents, but the latter fueled the debate that says the UFOs are real and not from Earth.
Three months after the Roswell crash, the United States Air Force General Nathan Farragut Twining produced a memo, where he stated that the UFOs are real and the US had no such technology. It may not sound surprising after the USS Nimitz incident, when a part of the UFO mystery was solved about 70 years ago.
Twining was not just any ordinary USAF official. He held several important positions in the United State government. In 1945, he was appointed commanding general of the Air Materiel Command (AMC) at Wright Field, Ohio. He was named chief of staff of the Air Force on June 30, 1953. In this capacity, he served as the senior military adviser to the president, the National Security Council, and the secretary of defense.
Hence, his name on the memo was enough to respect the credibility of the information written in it. Twining was clearly involved in the Roswell crash incident, which can be confirmed from his travel records that show that he went to New Mexico on July 8, 1947. He stayed there until July 10.

The Pentagon asked Twining and his team at AMC to provide the information on the whole flying saucer affair. Twining conducted a secret conference with personnel from AMC, T-2 intelligence, the Office of Chief Engineering Division, and the Aircraft, Power Plant, and Propeller Laboratories of Engineering (Division T-3).
His memo to Brig. General George Schulgen is not just the opinion of Twining but observations of several bright-minded people and high-ranking officers.
He wrote: “The phenomenon is something real and not visionary or fictitious. There are objects probably approximating the shape of a disc, of such appreciable size as to appear to be as large as man-made aircraft. There is a possibility that some of the incidents may be caused by natural phenomena, such as meteors. The reported operating characteristics such as extreme rates of climb, maneuverability (particularly in roll), and motion which must be considered evasive when sighted or contacted by friendly aircraft and radar, lend belief to the possibility that some of the objects are controlled either manually, automatically or remotely.”
His descriptions of the flying saucer were common as in any UFO sighting. They follow as:
- Metallic or light reflecting surface.
- Absence of trail, except in a few instances where the object apparently was operating under high-performance conditions.
- Circular or elliptical in shape, flat on bottom and domed on top.
- Several reports of well-kept formation flights varying from three to nine objects.
- Normally no associated sound, except in three instances when a substantial rumbling roar was noted.
- Level flight speeds normally above 300 knots are estimated.
Twining asked in his memo to consider that “The lack of physical evidence in the shape of crash recovered exhibits which would undeniably prove the existence of these subjects.” UFO skeptics note that no wreckage was retrieved from the crash site, while some considered his letter as proof that the Air Force knows that extraterrestrial UFOs exist.
According to Don Schmitt and Tom Carey, the approval of the memo and Twining’s signature on it simply show that the Air Force had definitely acknowledged the existence of UFOs.
In the book “Inside the Real Area 51,” they highlighted that something extraordinary happened in New Mexico in 1947, and it was not a weather balloon. So, if the UFO crashed then its wreckage could have been taken to Wright Field where Twining was a commanding general.
The memo clearly states that Twining asked the government to keep studying the craft. It means that the US had no secret aircraft in 1947. UFO historian Richard Dolan wrote in his book titled “UFOs and the National Security State: An Unclassified History” that “The U.S. had no craft in 1947, experimental or otherwise, that could duplicate the reported maneuvers of flying saucers. Even today, cutting-edge aircraft cannot turn a sharp angle at mach-plus speeds.”
The UAP events are indeed real and in the present knowledge of the world, there is no such man-made craft that could go at the altitude of 80,000 feet and do such frequent maneuvers. During World War II, the Soviets and Nazis were developing impressive crafts but still, nothing like this has been achieved. The Twining memo reminds us that nothing has changed in the 70 years about UFOs.
