When it comes to aliens and unidentified flying objects, Wright-Patt often comes up because of its involvement in an operation called "Project Blue Book," said base spokesman Daryl Mayer.
From 1947 to 1969, the Air Force investigated UFOs as part of the project, which was headquartered at Wright-Patt, according to the Air Force Declassification Office. The project was terminated in December 1969.
At the time the project ended, around 701 of 12,618 sightings remained “unidentified,” according to the Air Force. The project concluded that no UFOs showed technology outside the scope of what was within the range of “scientific knowledge” at that time.
