BBC.co.uk

A relatively long time ago, in a west Wales town not too far away... arguably the most famous spaceship in the universe was created.

In the winter of 1979 word started to spread in Pembroke Dock that a flying saucer was being built in an old giant aircraft hangar in the town.

Those involved were sworn to secrecy.





Unfortunatley its not an alien one....*sigh*....Nonetheless I thought some ATSers might want to take a look at the article.


According to Brian Johnson, special effects supervisor on the film, the spaceship could fly - but only a few millimetres off the ground.


It weighed nearly 23 tonnes and flew a few millimetres off the ground........What the hell was powering this thing????

peace

Read the entire article next time, and be wary when they are building a Millenium Falcon mock-up.



"We fitted compressed air hover pads on the feet to lift the thing up so it could be pushed around without any wheels.

"The whole thing was actually floating on a cushion of air, with about a sixteenth of an inch between the feet and the floor.


I can't get the damn quote thing to work, but its on the link he provided.


EDIT: fixed quote

So you're saying you know what lifted it, but you are asking anyways.?.?
Maybe that's where I was confused. This seems more like a BTS article.
