I personally did not find any biographical information about a Lieutenant Edgard Izard who allegedly was in the US Air Force in 1947; which does not necessarily mean that he did not exist, only that I did not find any trace of him outside the literature on the Roswell incident.

I can just assure that the B-29 "Straight Flush" said to have been the plane on which he had been a co-pilot did exist:

B-29 Straight Flush

"Straight Flush" (B-29-36-MO 44-27301, Victor 85, 393d Bomb Squadron, 509th Composite Group) participated in the Hiroshima attack on August 6, 1945, by conducting a weather reconnaissance flight over this city before the bombing.

In November 1945, Straight Flush returned with the 509th to Roswell Army Air Field, New Mexico. From March to August 1946 it was assigned to the Operation Crossroads task force, then rejoined the 509th BG at Roswell.

(See for example Wikipedia, and page 44 in "The B-29 Superfortress: A Comprehensive Registry of the Planes and Their Missions" by Robert A. Mann, 2004.)

Interviews and public statement:

See below: Edgard Izard probably testified of nothing, being just cited as a crew member of a flight allegedly carrying saucer debris from the Roswell base to Fort Worth on July 9, 1947, according to another witness.

Investigators comments and notes:

Thomas Carey and Don Schmitt:

The authors discuss of the "Straight Flush" B-29 unscheduled secret flight from Roswell to Fort Worth of an an unmarked wooden crate.

They say the flight crew that day from the 393rd Bomb Squadron at the RAAF, had on board among the crew Lt. Edgar Izard, retired from the Air Force and last seen selling insurance in Roswell in the 1950s. They say that to their knowledge, he was never interviewed and is now presumed dead.


My comment:

Robert Slusher, sergeant in 1947, had, by affidavit, reported that he had been a member of the B-29 crew that had escorted Roswell's crates of debris to Fort Worth. He stated that the crew had loaded crates in the bomb bay guarded by MPs for the Fort Worth destination on July 9, 1947. He had indicated that the crew consisted of Captain Frederick Ewing, co-pilot Edgar Izard, Lieutenant Felix Martucci, Sergeant David Tyner, Navigator James Eubanks, Sergeant Arthur Osepchook, and Corporal Thadeus Love.
