General Nathan F. Twining

General Nathan F. Twining was commander of bombing operations in both Europe and the Pacific during World War II. In 1945 he was appointed Commanding-General of the Air Materiel Command, based at Wright Patterson AFB (then known as Wright Field). A declassified secret document reveals that in September 1947 Twining presented the conclusions of AMC that “the phenomenon reported is something real.” Twining suddenly cancelled a planned trip to the West Coast on 8th July, the day of the Roswell press release reporting that they had captured a “Flying Disk,” “due to a very important and sudden matter.”
