Revisiting Roswell - Jesse Marcel Jr. Visits UFO Crash Site
On the 66th anniversary of the famous Roswell UFO incident, the Roswell Sightings team had the honor of accompanying Jesse Marcel Jr. and Frank Kimbler to the Roswell UFO crash site. In our short documentary, 'Revisiting Roswell', we learn how Jesse Marcel Jr. got up close with materials from the crash site at the age of just 11 years old. We also hear about Frank Kimbler's quest to get his multiple crash site samples analyzed in the hope that, once and for all, we can understand just what landed there on that day in 1947.
The Roswell UFO incident will forever be one an episode of intrigue and conspiracy, but more light is shed on the first few hours of the incident as Jesse Marcel Jr. tells us of the materials brought home by his father, Major Jesse Marcel Sr. As a Major with the US Air Force based in Roswell New Mexico, Jesse Marcel Sr. was among the first to set foot on the crash site after local man Mac Brazel discovered the wreckage. Now, 66 years on, people like Frank Kimbler are still searching for answers.
On this special day, deep in the New Mexican desert, we were lucky enough to join Jesse Marcel Jr. on a trip down memory lane as he returns to his childhood home. This is the same home in which he and his father studied the metallic material with the bizarre markings just hours after it was discovered.
