A refurbished look at Paul's 2016 book on the April 1941 UFO crash near Cape Girardeau, Missouri, six years before the 1947 USA “flying saucer” craze & Roswell event. What was the sitting U.S. president (FDR) up to at the time, along with two future ones (Truman & Kennedy)?

Paul Blake Smith was born and raised in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, where in April 1941 his grandfather was a judge and his father a schoolboy. Paul was a four-year Mass Communications Major & English Minor at Southeast Missouri State University.

Released November 23rd, 2020 and still available: "President Eisenhower's Close Encounters"

Released in November 2020 by Foundations Publishing, my newest nonfiction book on UFOs and ETs has become a hit.  It takes a look at how President Dwight D. Eisenhower made contact with friendly, landed alien beings in 1954 & '55, plus some other amazing presidential tales tied in to this historic secret communication. Now, in January 2022, the popular book is being released by Tantor Media ( in audio-book form....

"3 Presidents, 2 Accidents: More MO41 UFO Crash Data and Surprises"

Two riveting, well-reviewed 2016 books from Argus Publishing examine in detail the facts, rumors, clues, and existing evidence for an alien spacecraft crash-landing on a farm outside of Cape Girardeau, Missouri, in mid-April of 1941.    "MO41, The Bombshell Before Roswell"  was seen recently on the History Channel's "Ancient Aliens," and it sequel reinforced the shocking conclusion: the U.S. Army hustled away from a Cape Girardeau area farm three gray ET bodies and a damaged, crash-landed disc, but some folks in Missouri talked!   Also explored are the actions of President Franklin Roosevelt in the spring of '41, plus future presidents Harry Truman and John Kennedy... along with a few other familiar faces and places involved.

Some helpful images

President Franklin D. Roosevelt was our nation's president during the time of the 1941 UFO crash in Cape Girardeau, a city he visited in 1920.


Young Ensign Jack Kennedy worked in D.C. for the Office of Naval Intelligence in 1941 and may have found out plenty on MO41.

Harry 1

The GrandMaster Mason of Missouri, Senator Harry S Truman used to live in Cape Girardeau in 1906. Just after the '41 UFO crash there, his stock soared and he was off on a meteoric rise to the highest office in the land.


This late 1990s letter was typed by a dying CIA and Army Intel officer, confessing that one of the biggest secrets he ever learned was of the crashed ET ship in Missouri, 1941!

History Channel

Not only has the MO41 affair been featured on "Ancient Aliens," but also on History Channel's "MUFON: Hangar 1" series.

Ancient Aliens

"MO41, The Bombshell Before Roswell" was shown and featured in the History Channel program "Ancient Aliens" in August, 2016.

This genuine ET footage still photo - taken in early '40s Russia - fits the description of the '41 Cape Girardeau crash perfectly. Coincidence?


Quite possibly an actual photo of a captured, crashed alien ship, site unknown. The photo was leaked years later, evidently, and seems to be a good example of what is said to have come down in a farmer's field outside Cape Girardeau, Missouri, in April 1941 - but it is NOT a photo taken from that night or shortly thereafter, as far as I know.

Skyrocket clips-1

Actress Carole Lombard died in a mysterious TWA plane crash in early 1942, with a UFO sighting involved. Here, she wears ruby "flying saucer" type clips, found after her fatal plane accident, which has eerie parallels to the MO41 event.

Heading 3

About "MO41, The Bombshell Before Roswell" - by Paul Blake Smith - - In my chapters I take a look at the circumstantial evidence  for a UFO crash with 3 dead gray alien bodies in a farm field outside my hometown of Cape Girardeau, Missouri, in late April 1941.  I air some collected accounts and allegations, along with some fascinating forum postings and leaked government documents making reference to the hushed-up event.  I provided a lot source material in the end notes, but overall it was frustrating to research since everyone is long since deceased from '41.  It should have been a bigger story in the press than the Roswell UFO crash saga, coming six years earlier!
