"By July 5, 1947, flying discs had been reported in at least thirty-one states. ...The AEC's request came five days after the U. S. Army knew that it had succeeded in bringing down two examples of the foreign (disc) technology. "

On June 27, 1947, it was announced that "two top generals" from U. S. Army Ordnance would visit WSPG the week of June 30. Major General Everett S. Hughes, the commanding general in charge of U. S. Army Ordnance and Brig. General Henry Saylor, Chief, Research and Development Group and a member of JRDB's Upper Atmosphere Rocket Research Panel. The two Generals were visiting WSPG to "inspect the new safety devices installed on V-2s" and to witness the next launch on July 3. But there really were no new safety devices on V-2s to inspect and there would not be a V-2 launch on July 3. [ Source: El Paso Times, June 27, 1947.]
