Inventor Howard Hughes, in addition to being famous for his wealth and his debilitating eccentricities later in life, was also one of the most acclaimed aviators in modern times, cited among the most brilliant minds in engineering history. But could it be that Hughes was at one time even considered for the task of back-engineering flying saucers? A new report, compiled by Bill Knell over at Op Ed News suggests this, with specific relevance to the infamous 1947 incident at Roswell, New Mexico.

Hughes, with his history of involvement in covert U.S. Government and CIA operations, as well as his associations with the famous Watergate scandal, only further confirms in our minds that he might have had involvment with darker conspiracies of this sort. Was Hughes asked to back-engineer the spacecraft that allegedly crashed at Roswell, and did he actually witness the craft himself, having even been shown the alien bodies found within?
