'UFO' towed through US town panics locals

Postby Laodicean » Fri Dec 16, 2011 9:19 am

Residents of a small town in the US could not believe their eyes when they saw a huge mysterious craft shaped life {sic} a flying saucer on the back of a truck driving through town.

Worried residents called the local newspaper to report a UFO after they saw the 10m-wide craft, covered in a large white tarp, being driven down US 77 in Cowley County in Kansas on Monday, local TV station ABC7 reports.

"People were calling in saying, 'Oh they think they found a flying saucer. It looks like a flying saucer to us and we don't know for sure what it is'," said Donetta Godsey from the Winfield Daily Courier.

The transport company even called the town sheriff to make sure officers were on hand to ensure the craft made it through safely.

Police helped manoeuvre the craft for nearly an hour, removing signs from a roundabout because the truck had to drive over the middle.

Deputy sheriff Bill Mueller finally explained the top secret object, saying it was an experimental aircraft from weapons company Northrop Grumman, possibly a new unmanned drone, that was being transported to Maryland.

Alien Invasion?

Alien invasion? — An unusual looking object traveling through Cowley County was the cause of much conversation and speculation Monday morning. Hauled on a large flatbed truck along US Highway 77, area residents got a look at a 32-foot-wide dull gray wrapped apparatus shaped like a flying saucer and featuring flashing red lights. Reports were that the object is a Navy drone which, after wings are attached, will fly off aircraft carriers. One location of concern was the bridge north of Winfield which is only 35 feet wide. Local emergency management officers along with members of the Ark City and Winfield Police Departments and Cowley County Sheriff’s Department were on hand to control traffic as the aircraft proceeded on its way to Maryland.
