Dr. Olavo T. Fontes, of Brazil was a prominent UFO researcher in the 1950's. www.ufocasebook.com He was one of the best informed civilian UFO researchers of the 1950's and he died a untimely and suspicious death from a fast acting cancer while he was still in his 30's. He died soon after he was threatened by two intelligence agents from the United States. His letter was published in the Book UFO Crash Aztec along with other materials relating to Dr. Fontes, if anybody is interested in more information do a net search.
This letter is so important to expolitics because it gives a very detailed idea of the paranoid mentality of the armed forces in the 1950's as they clamped down on critical people in the know who were leaking information to the public. It also shows how well organized and coordinated the worlds military forces were on the subject of extraterrestrial life. The letter was found in Dr. Fontes files long after his death and was a long letter. The following is what the intelligence agents told him and is excerpted from the much longer letter that even Steinman did not publish in its entirety in UFO Crash At Aztec. The letter was written on February 27, 1958.
In discussions which lasted for almost two hours they disclosed the following information about the flying saucer problem:
1. They told me that all governments and military authorities through the world know that flying saucers exist–and that they are craft from another planet. The have absolute proof of both things.
2. As a matter of fact, six flying discs already crashed on this earth and were captured and taken apart by military forces and scientists of the countries involved–under the most rigid and ruthless security restrictions to keep the matter absolutely secret. One of those discs crashed in the Sahara Desert but was too much destroyed to be of some use. Three others crashed in the United States, two of them in very good condition. The fifth crashed somewhere in the British Islands, and the last one came down at one of the Scandinavian countries; these two were almost undamaged too. All these six discs were small craft – 32, 72, or 99 feet in diameter. In all of them were found bodies of members of their crews.
They were “little men” and ranged in height from 32 to 46 inches. They were dead in all cases, killed in the disasters. The examination of the bodies showed they were definitely “humanoid” – but obviously not from this planet. In some cases the cause of the crash was determined with accuracy; it wasn’t apparent in the others. All ships had the general shape of a saucer with a cabin on the top; all of them were of a very light metal which was assembled in segments that fitted in deep grooves and were pinned together around the base. There was no sign of this on the outer surface of the ships. Some of the ships had portholes made of an unknown type of glass; many kinds of unknown materials were found inside the ships.
3. Examination of instruments and devices found aboard these discs showed that they were propelled by an extremely powerful electro-magnetic field. Evidence shows it is a rotating and oscillating high voltage electro-magnetic field. Such a kind of field obviously produces some type of gravity effect yet not understood.
