Eddie had his license pulled by the FAA in 1990.
Roger Nixon interviewed him because Eddie insisted that he had seen a spaceship crash. Eddie claimed the ship passed barely ten feet from his plane when it crashed. Eddie went to investigate the ship but found it gone. His information prompted Steven Hamilton to excavate and explore the field, where Hamilton found an octagonal-shaped disc.
Hamilton sought to ask Eddie more about the ship, but he was mysteriously unavailable for questioning.
