Shocking eyewitness testimony that is just as riveting as the story of the Roswell UFO crash. On a clear spring day in 1955, Air Force pilot Robert Willingham was flying an F-86 fighter jet across West Texas when he saw an object "as bright as a star" streak past him and then execute a 90-degree turn going 2,000 miles per hour. Giving chase in his jet, the decorated World War II and Korean War veteran watched in awe as the object suddenly plummeted to Earth near Del Rio, Texas. Soon after, he visited the crash site and saw a large, silver UFO impacted into the side of a sandy hill. Nothing could have prepared him for what happened next, as his life was about to change forever.
In 1955, local citizens claimed an unidentified flying object (UFO) crashed along the south bank of the Rio Grande, just a few hundred feet from the town of Langtry.
The incident was known as the Del Rio, Texas UFO Crash.
Former Air Force Reserve pilot Robert Burton Willingham stated that he was flying an F-86 Sabre jet fighter when he observed a UFO streak past him and crash near Langtry.
