The Roswell Army Air Field is a former army flight school that became infamous as the site of the 1947 Roswell UFO Incident.


In 1947, the Roswell Army Air Field dispatched soldiers to collect the remnants of a crashed object reported to be a weather balloon. Many came to believe it was an alien spacecraft and the local UFO lore essentially began in Roswell. The ghosts of the soldiers took on the forms of little green men and were trapped by the Ghostbusters decades later.
