Trouble in the Desert (cont.)

Crash in Juarez, Mexico, on May 29, 1947

The explosion at Mt. Franklin was witnessed by General Homer and reported by the El Paso Times the following day. That explosion occurred more than ten minutes before a second explosion at least twenty-five miles further south. General Homer dispatched troops to look for missile wreckage and investigate the first crash site ten to fifteen miles northwest of Ft. Bliss towards WSPG. [ Source: Ibid.]
