UFO Crash in Texas. Unidentified flying objects are often dismissed as commercial aircraft or secret military test craft. But there are reports of UFOs predating the invention of the airplane. The Wright brothers flew the first plane at Kitty Hawk in 1903. Six years earlier, sightings of a so-called “airship” were reported in newspapers throughout the United States. The last of these articles to be printed, is the account of the crash of the airship in Texas.
