1941 UFO Crash/ Great Pyramid Mystery

About the show

Researcher and author Paul Blake Smith joined George Knapp in the first half to discuss a pre-Roswell 1941 incident, in which ETs allegedly crash-landed their circular spaceship on a farm just outside of Cape Girardeau, Missouri. Smith reported on a possible cover-up perpetrated by the US government, with evidence from long concealed documents. Smith’s narrative began with the story of the Baptist Reverend William Huffman, who was called out to the site of an apparent aircraft crash one night in late April 1941. Huffman recalled wreckage, a fire, and two small bodies of what would now be referred to as alien "greys" laying in the grass. Another nearby was still breathing, but died as Huffman was getting his Bible out to say prayers over them.

According to Smith’s research, the Army arrived to take charge and told all witnesses that "this did not happen" and to never talk about the incident. All "souvenirs" and film were confiscated. A photographer on the scene managed to smuggle out a photo which he later gave to the Huffman family. Smith says that the photo was taken from them years later by a man who was from Army intelligence. A fireman who was at the scene later claimed that his phone was tapped and he was pursued for years by agents. Smith also spoke about the famous crash of a plane carrying actress Carole Lombard in 1942. According to Smith, there were multiple witnesses to a UFO sighting in the area of the crash and that a rancher commented that the aircraft sounded "badly crippled" just before it crashed into a mountain, killing all on board. Smith spoke of tenuous but interesting connections between the crash and the UFO incident the year before in Cape Girardeau. Rob called in from Salt Lake City to give compelling information on another possible UFO crash in South Dakota sometime in the 1950s.


Despite millennia of fame, the origins of the Great Pyramid of Giza are shrouded in mystery. Believed to be the tomb of an Egyptian king, even though no remains have ever been found, its dating at roughly 2550 BCE is tied to only one piece of evidence: crudely painted marks within the pyramid’s hidden chambers that refer to the 4th Dynasty king Khufu. In the second half, Egyptian pyramid researcher Scott Creighton discussed how and why the marks were likely faked. Hieratic (an informal type of hieroglyphics) markings on the massive stones were left by work gangs as they quarried the limestone blocks. In 1837, British Colonel Harold Vyse dynamited his way into a hidden chamber of the Great Pyramid where he claimed to discover markings that identified a work gang associated with the pharaoh Khufu. Creighton said that "the marks are the only hard evidence that connects the pyramid to this ancient Egyptian King."

Creighton’s research suggests that Col Vyse may have forged or lied about the markings for his own benefit. Throughout his diaries, Creighton says, Vyse wrote of his desire to make some sort of monumental discovery while he was in Egypt, such as identifying marks on the great Pyramid which would conclusively date the structure, which then miraculously happened. He also pointed out that Vyse’s private notes and his published writings contradict themselves in terms of what he discovered and when he discovered it. There is also a carved stone that refers to Khufu sponsoring repairs on the Pyramid and the Sphinx, as if they were old and existed prior to his reign. Creighton thinks the monument may be up to 20,000 years old. He concluded that the "deeper we dig, the further back the history of humanity seems to go."
