Greetings Forumerions,

Interesting report just in:


JERSEY CITY (CBS) ― The Federal Aviation Administration says a piece of hot metal that crashed through the roof of a Jersey City business did not come from an airplane.

FAA spokeswoman Arlene Salac says investigators examined the metal and determined it is made of cast iron, which is not used in airplanes. She says it's up to local authorities to determine where the object came from.


The rest of the story . . .

Cheers,
Frank

Maybe it was a cast iron UFO.

Or a cast iron secret military plane

Or a cast iron satellite

Or a cast iron secret space station

Or a cast iron piece of exploded/ignited Jupiter

Well, it's most likely part of the crashed satellites, unless that is a cover story for something they aren't telling us about like a galactic war taking place right in our own solar system! lol

Hi, inquisitive persons.

**IF** there is a steel-melting plant, near that house in Jersey City,
the electric type one, I can explain what "could" have happened. . .

Blue skies.

Is it "Or"?

Boilers for home heating systems are made of cast iron. Loud noise then a piece of cast iron comes through the roof. Boilers are known to burst on occasion. I wonder if anyone bothered to check with the neighbors.

Interesting little discrepancy in the article;

A piece of warm metal the size of a brick came crashing through the roof just steps from where he was standing.

Officials at the scene also confirmed to WCBS radio that the metal was too hot to touch for about 30 minutes after crashing through the roof.


Warm connotes something a little different from too hot to touch. Gotta love TV reports.

Could not have put it better myself


Has thinking gone out of fashion?

This has nothing to do with UFOs/satellites.

This has nothing to do with UFOs. I work in Jersey City. I spoke to one of the cops about this. It was a part off a machine nearby that turns wood into mulch. It came loose and flew about 200 yards into the roof of the warehouse. It was hot because of the friction of the machine while it is chopping logs into little tiny pieces. I am sure the news will report it tonight.

Mayor: Mysterious Object That Crashed into Jersey City Business Came from Wood Chipper

JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) -- The mysterious falling object in Jersey City appears to have come from a wood chipper.

Mayor Jerramiah Healy says the chunk of hot metal came from nearby -- not from an plane as once suspected.

Al Smith was fork-lifting a sofa onto a wooden storage platform around 9:30 a.m. in his moving company's warehouse when he heard a sound he thought was a bomb.

A piece of warm metal the size of a brick came crashing through the roof just steps from where he was standing. It splintered a wooden beam and crashed into a shelf.

The Federal Aviation Administration looked at the object and determined it wasn't from an airplane.

Smith was not hurt but says he was shaken up by the incident. And he feels so lucky it missed him that his next step was to buy a lottery ticket.

Those chippers are lethal. The giant blade is one big very heavy fly wheel. One shattered its axle here in WA Australia in a paddock in the country a few years ago. The main junk flew through the air like a giant heavy Frisbee and hit a car passing on the highway. Killed the poor guy and nearly chopped his car in half.
