The Roswell Report - Fact versus Fiction in the New Mexico Desert was produced by Headquarters United States Air Force during 1995. It represents a joint effort by Col. Richard L. Weaver and 1st Lt. James McAndrew to address the request made by Representative Steven H. Schiff (R-NM) forinformation regarding an alleged crash of an unidentified flying object (UFO) that occurred in the state in 1947. This publication duplicates the information provided to the Secretary of the Air Force and to the General Accounting Office (GAO).

It was written as a result of Colonel Weaver’s and Lieutenant McAndrew’s efforts to locate the records that explain the events of July 1947 leading to what is popularly known as the Roswell Incident. The only information presented here that was not in the report delivered to the Secretary of the Air Force and the GAO is the photograph section. It appears after Colonel Weaver’s final attachment, at the very end of this book.
