In this episode of Chasing UFOs, the team travels to New Mexico to investigate a mysterious video, which some believe shows a UFO crashing into the desert. Following the trail of clues, Ryder, Ben and James embark on a journey that leads them to Roswell where they uncover astonishing evidence that could prove a conspiracy at the highest levels of government.
The team starts off in Alamogordo, home of Holloman Air Force Base and White Sands Missile Test Range, where they meet legendary ufologist Ted Loman. Loman received the tape anonymously and believes it not only shows a UFO, but proof that the military is in some way involved. The key, Loman tells them, are the bases at White Sands and Holloman. Curious about the bases, Ryder, Ben and James launch a stealthy, nightime mission to get eyes on Holloman, but
before they can do that, the military gets eyes on them. Convinced the truth about the video and all the other sightings in New Mexico are linked to the military, the team meets with a retired Air Force serviceman named Dee Gragg who was stationed at Holloman. Gragg confirms their hunch, telling them that Holloman has been a UFO hub for decades. Even now, there are strange craft flying into and out of the base. Gragg’s testimony prompts the team to make a daring reconnaissance mission into the Sacramento Mountains to see if they can spot any of these strange craft. Battling freezing temperatures and rugged terrain the team sets up their cameras, telescopes and infrared equipment. While there, Ryder catches glimpse of a strange light in the sky. As it rounds the mountain she gives chase and comes within inches of disaster.
Now convinced they’re on the trail of something, the team meets with another former soldier. They hit the road and travel to Roswell where they meet Clifford Stone. Stone tells them that in the 1960s he was part of a secret military unit that responded to downed UFOs. As he details his experience of crash and body retrievals, Stone reveals that the famed crash in Roswell wasn’t a weather balloon as the military claims. It was a UFO. Ryder, Ben and James decide to investigate and learn of a local scientist named Frank Kimbler who says he’s not only uncovered the location of the famed Roswell crash…he’s even collected debris. The team heads out with Kimbler to see if they can uncover more. During an investigation that goes well into the night the team uncovers evidence that could change everything we know about Roswell, the military and even what we believe about life in the universe.
