That would also explain the famous newspaper headline that said the craft was 'captured'. That word is usually reserved for an enemy asset - and Russia, at the time, certainly met that description.
But an alien craft invading our airspace would be considered an enemy too....especially so during times of war.
Actually, until they saw the wreckage for themselves....it WAS a ufo.
I am not buying this latest......60 plus years in the making explanation of Russian planes with some kind of manufactured little beings piloting it!!!
They should have stopped at weather balloon and test dummies!!!
