What do you think about Aurora crash in 1897?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aurora_Texas_UFO_Incident
This happened before inventing the planes so what could have been there(it’s proofed that something crashed there). Also it appears that there exists a well where were threw a part of the remainders of the aircraft and it looks like the ’‘alien’’ was buried in cemetery.In 1970’s a team of UFO specialists investigated the town and the localized the alien grave (marked with a small stone with an aircraft on it) but they didn’t obtain the right to dig there,also for a period of 2 weeks the police secured the cemetery and in this period the stone and the metals that were inside the grave(they scanned the grave and the crashing sight with a metal detector and they had the same signal in both places).What do you think about all this?Do you think that is a real story?Do you think that in 1970’s someone hide the evidences?

It was a hoax, generated by S.E.Haydon, an Aurora resident.

I’m guessing it could be a hoax. Or… that could be what the government wants you to believe.

the evidence is inconclusive.

At first blush, it would be difficult to conceive of this as a hoax. I say this mainly because the science fiction of the time (what little, yet representative, that I have read) predates common notions of UFOs and aliens. What I read was more concerned with brain transplants and robots/AI—laboratory stuff. I would have a hard time buying a flying saucer hoax before mechanical flight really took in the public imagination.

Reading the hoax section of that article, however, seems to
refute a good bit of the above.

Well, it seems like a hoax among hoaxes. They see space ships in ancient paintings as well. To my knowledge, there has never been anything looking like proof of extra terrestrials here on earth. I am confident there is life out there. I just don’t think they have the gas to get here.

Hoax. Aliens don’t fly in cigar shaped ships. They are saucers.

@filmfann: I hope you meant that as a joke.

@Ria777 No no. filmfann would never joke about fine china.

Mechanical flight was in fact very much a part of the turn-of-the-century zeitgeist,
and why am I not surprised it was in Texas?
