Howard Hughes and the Socorro craft (from Jose Antonio Caravaca)

You should know that Spanish UFO researcher (our friend and colleague) Jose Caravaca is more obsessed by Lonnie Zamora's 1964 Socorro sighting that I am (if that's possible).

Jose found this during a Blue Book search (now that Blue Book files are online for free):
I asked him to provide supplemental material, and he has:
This adds credence to my long-held suggestion that it was a Howard Hughes Aircraft/Toolco/Raven CIA experiment gone slightly awry.



  • Interesting fodder for further conjecture.

  • Grazie Nick...

    Your piece remains pertinent and edifying, as usual.

    I would hope readers here would access your link.

  • So many connections to Hughes in Nick's essay. It reminds me of the old saying "where there's smoke there's fire"

  • Nick's research is, as always, second to none, but the letter to the FBI that he quotes reads like tongue-in-cheek fiction. ("Danse Macabre" screams "gotcha" to me.) Still, if anybody is able to track down a smoking gun project that led to Socorro, it will be Nick or Rich.

    Hughes continues to fascinate; my father worked at Hughes Aircraft in the '50s and '60s in the contracts management division and was privy to many sensitive projects. But he never let anything slip to his flying saucer fanboy of a son.

  • Interestingly, the Lonnie Zamora incident certainly was not the first event involving a strange aerial phenomenon to have occurred at Socorro.
