    There were NUMEROUS reports of "Air-ships" back then; even a movie made on one encounter in Aurora, TX. in 1897.

    Burial place of "Ned', the UFO pilot is indicated in Aurora, TX. The movie is wrong, as there was NO survivor; it IS entertaining, tho.

    Folks in TX can go visit "Ned's" grave in Aurora, TX; his tombstone has a cigar-shaped Object with windows on it... take Pics! Look for the well that the cigar-shaped object was thrown down into & BURIED! Take Pics! Thanks!
