I've always liked this one for some reason. I don't think it's ET craft, but possible a black craft, useing some type of gravity distortion propulsion, or electro-magnetic type thing.
This video is suspect because the UFO image focus does not change as much as the building focus (the focal changes should be the same if the UFO were far away, like the building). It is also suspect because the UFO image size does not change as much as the building image where the camera "zooms" in or out. And finally, the "construction" of the UFO image does not seem consistent with what might be expected from a symmetric circular craft. Of course, UFOnauts can make unsymmetric vehicles, one supposes, so perhaps this is not as important as the issues related to defocus and magnification change.
Without further information that could provide reasonable explanations for the "fingerprints of a hoax" this video has to be considered a probable hoax.

I have to admit I'm not up on this "coanda effect", but there are some defenite asthetic similiarities between the two craft.
The Moller M200G Volantor is entering production at a whopping height of 10 feet and max speeds of up to 50mph for 90 minute flights. Although this bad boy won’t be turning heads on the highway just yet, it is being marketed as a form of off roading. Dr. Moller is quoted,
It’s not a hovercraft, although its operation is just as easy. You can speed over rocks, swampland, fences, or log infested waterways with ease because you’re not limited by the surface. The electronics keep the craft stabilized at no more than 10 feet altitude, which places the craft within ground effect where extra lift is obtained from operating near the ground. This lets you glide over terrain at 50 mph that would stop most other vehicles.
It seems as if the crafts have ample orders, counting in at 67. Maximum payload is 250 pounds at a cost of about $90,000.

The aircraft, flying car etc all rely on the movement of air to support the vehicle. Would they work in vacuum of space?
Welcome to the Levitated Dipole eXperiment (LDX) web site. LDX is a novel experimental device designed to explore the physics of plasma confinement in a magnetic dipole field. What makes it unique? Besides levitating a 1/2 ton superconducting ring, we will conduct the first experimental test on the theory of plasma confinement by adiabatic compressibility. If this concept turns out to be correct, levitated dipoles may one day make an attractive magnetically confined fusion energy source. LDX is a collaboration between Columbia University's Dept. of Applied Physics and the MIT Plasma Science & Fusion Center and is funded by the Department of Energy's Office of Fusion Energy.
they would have to transport their air reliant craft with them from whence they came.
Just a thought!
