“We saw 3 beings, injured, hollering their lungs out like a hurt jackrabbit”
The 1945 San Antonio UFO Crash: The Reme Baca and Jose Padilla witness Case
(By Paola Leopizzi Harris)
Born on the edge of Ground Zero, living in the shadow of Area 51, two little Hispanic children experienced an extraordinary event. Jose Padilla, age 9, and Reme Baca, age 7, witnessed a saucer crash on Padilla land in the town San Antonio, New Mexico. They were witness to one of the most spectacular events in UFO history.
It is one of the most astounding cases ever encountered, and it helps complete the puzzle of why there has been so many crash retrievals in New Mexico, and its significance in UFO history.
Little or nothing has been printed about the military’s clean-up operations, shrouded in the “hush-hush” atmosphere of the time. But the military detail apparently came from White Sands Proving Grounds to the east where the first atomic bomb was exploded. It was a recovery operation destined for the mesquite and greasewood desert west of Old US-85, at what is now Milepost 139, the San Antonio exit of Interstate 25.
Over the course of several days, soldiers in Army fatigues loaded the shattered remains of a flying apparatus onto a huge flatbed truck and hauled it away as witnessed by Remigio Baca and Jose Padilla. Padilla, then age 9, and Baca, 7, secretly watched much of the soldiers’ recovery work from a nearby ridge immediately following America’s first atomic bomb tests at the White Sands Proving Grounds.
