The X-files

1X01 Deep Throat

When the wife of a US airforce test pilot Lieutenant Colonel Robert Budahas contacts the bureau about his disappearance following a psychotic episode, Mulder takes an interest in the case. Even after a mysterious man, dubbed 'Deep Throat' warns him off the case in Washington. Agents Mulder and Scully travel to Ellens Air Force Base in Idaho to meet Mrs Budahas, who tells them her husband was a test pilot at Ellens Air Force Base but that she has not seen or heard from him since the airforce took him away. Her enquiries to the airforce have gone unanswered. As Mulder and Scully investigate, they are hampered by a restricted airforce base, bent of keeping their operations secret. They theorise that Budahas was involved in Project Aurora, the code name for the Pentagon's secret testing of sub-orbital spy craft. During a stake out at the base perimiter, they witness unidentified flying objects performing complex manoeuvring at incredibly speeds. When Robert Budahas is suddenly returned to his wife, albeit with his memory a little messed up, the agents realise he has been returned to end their investigation of Ellens Air Force Base. One of the six bases it is reputed that UFO wreckage from the 1947 'Roswell Incident' was taken. Both Mulder and Scully have to ignore the rule book as they probe into the possibility that the military is testing experimental aircraft built with UFO technology.
