Air Force Denial
Force just as quickly denied that any unidentified flying objects were flying
around over the country. But just in case, the high command emphasized that
air base commanders have standing orders to intercept and force down any UFOs
in their area. Residents of the Texcoco area, on
the edge of Mexico City, swore they saw a saucer land on Lake Texcoco. The lake is a vast expanse of dry flatland most
of the year, having dried up many years ago. During the current rainy season,
there are several lake-sized pools in the low areas, and residents say the
saucer sank in one of these.
Mexico City reporter was assigned by his editor to spend the day on the
wind-swept lake bed, which is lashed daily by small dust storms. He reported
no sign of the submarine saucer.
