A couple of things I'm confused about.

1. When the story broke the airframe company said they were transporting the airframe to the UK for stress testing of the fuselage (as pic above being transported onto cargo vessel). Now they are saying they are drop testing it themselves. So why the pic of airframe loading to boat?

2. Why the radio station in denial?

3. Why terms violation for the only original video?

4. Looking at the 1st pic (twitter) you can clearly see the car from which the picture is taken is on the right hand median (pulled over?) look to the right of the pic near bottom you can see the water filled crash bollard.

5. Where were they taking it to? If to be tested why are they going away from the manufacturer?

Very interesting. Classic MIB story.

I do recall recently seeing footage of a large flatbed with, what clearly appeared to be a saucer on the back.

Was there any press on this event?

Yes there was media coverage about this story and a video on their website. Here is the site:

The smell of sulfur is consistent with other UFO cases and may be related to fusion power generation. If it is a craft, then we are looking at a piece of technology that can generate an enormous amount of electricity with little fuel.

We have our government to blame for keeping free/cheap energy tech from becoming public information.

It may not have been completely assembled, but even if it was, aircraft are transported on dollies, laying on their bellies. If the sit on their landing gear the are too tall and unstable. Most of the time they don`t have a police escort, unless they`re in a high risk area. Most people aren`t going to try to steal 3/4ths of an airplane that they can`t move. So usually the escort is just a pair of pilot cars.

I did say 'I didn't see any landing gear in any of the pictures, but the pictures are so bad in quality it's impossible to say said landing gear wasn't on the flatbed, or indeed taken at another time to the Vought plant' so I get the fact it may have only been a part of the aircraft, as for the Police escort, from what I can gather there was indeed a Police presence not only in escort but to roadblock the highway also, so that would point to the fact it was either in a high risk area or something was special about the cargo… btw I've already said I think it was plane but the fact it wasn't covered stumped me a bit, but we can't tell from the pictures if it was or wasn't covered

I'm surprised more hasn't been said of defcon88's videos of something being transported on a highway (90?) in Texas. There is a Farm to Market Road 90 east of Dallas and US Highway 90 further south. The date of the video is August 8 and there are three short videos and not much else from defcon88. Very weird.

yeah i watched them they are very good altho you cant see anything other then the lights and him talking it seems to be very similar,

my friends dad is a truck driver for a living and he said he has never seen a cop escort like that for a truck, if anything all they get for oversized loads are the follow trucks with the yellow lights, and a huge sign reading wide load. he was confused by this as well.

someone said something about radiation, do you really think they care about civilians.
and someone said something about it being hot, i would like to think if this has been going on for as long as it had i bet they have someway of cooling it before everyone touches it and they prolly have gear on too.
also a crane was talked about...i bet you dont know how much these things weight, not saying i do but i mean they are prolly made of metals we dont know of (if they are from off this planet) so yeah or ya know they could just turn it on and land it on the truck but then they could just fly it back to base lol

Oh wow. I live in Dallas and I have never heard of this event. I'm going to do some amateur investigating around and see if anyone will talk. Stay tuned.

With events like these it marvels me still to think that people actually believe that disclosure is coming. That people like David Wilcock can say things like Obama is going to give a speech on national tv flanked by ETs and he will disclose everything and by the way the airtime is already booked and paid for. Hahaha. The gubmint is still going to extreme measures to commandeer local law enforcement and trying their best to conceal this from the public. People seem to believe that these MIB types are suddenly growing a conscience and that they are tired of keeping secrets. Yeah right. They will never ever ever ever ever not ever expose this until the day has come when enough proof has been uncovered by regular people and even then they will not even tell you half truths. We will get 1/900th of the truth out of them.

Disclosure is not ever going to willingly happen. They will never have enough secrets. They will never have enough money. They will never have enough blood on their hands. Stop believing in the goodness of man when it comes to these "people".

Also, let's assume that it was a recovered UFO.

Would it not be a tad on the unsafe side transporting it so close to civilians? What if it exploded? or the bindings holding it down broke and the object crashed into oncoming traffic? Or there was intense radiation emanating from it?

If we take a look at cases involving disc type UFOs they are known to be structurally sound. If a breach of the center core reactor occurred the explosion will fry the occupants and be contained by the thick outer hull.

Microwave radiation is emitted when their power generation and propulsion system is on. If the craft is not glowing or hot, the circulating distributed energy in the hull is likely off. Smoke has been witnessed to come from the craft so it appears there may have been a technical malfunction.

Two things bother me about this story:

Why would they "NOT" cover the object, rather it be a saucer or a secret govt craft? This makes no sense to me. Maybe this is some sort of false flag UFO incident for the govt to see what the results would be. And see if they can trust the local police, which apparently they can not, if this interview was from a Dallas Police officer.

Secondly, it seems pretty simple for the govt to find this officer, as there were only a few officers involved. And perhaps they did find him, as the investigator was no longer able to contact the officer. I suspect the Black Ops guys knew who every officer was and probably were monitoring them.

I believe this happened, and it was a "False Flag Operation" so the govt could see what would happen, i.e. would the Officers actually keep quiet? And also the local coverage as well as coverage on the internet, like ATS.

Go back and reread the OP....I don't believe he ever referred that they met in person at this home. the only reference to the officers home was when he said he had to end the interview because his family had just arrived home and he didn't want them exposed to any of this.

I believe it was an interview via the internet.

My bad, I misunderstood... and apologies

Mind you, it still leaves the other two points unanswered, particularly the one where he says he was assigned with 4 others to a particular task... that kinda narrows his identity a fair bit (if his superiors were looking for who blabbed)

Add that comment to this:

I just thought of something. Wouldn't the following statement make it fairly easy to narrow down the identity of the officer? Does anyone know if any officers were prosecuted (for any reason) or dismissed from the Dallas Police Department since this story broke? Assuming that this is true and because he didn't write back, I hope that he and his family are okay.

The officer, who was an 8 year veteran of the Dallas Police Department, was assigned to normal street patrol in a particular section of the city (again information has been withheld per his request).

.... and you could probably narrow it down to the culprit.

Perhaps, as gazerstar has said, they did find out who he was from that info, hence the 'no further contact' with the witness.

If he was whistle-blowing, and trying to stay anonymous, he really did a very bad job of it.

Either that, or he wasn't telling the truth (in part or in whole).

Just my impressions, mind you

This is one of the threads

I remember the thread, and you are correct. People immediately started to say it was something else, including me. I couldn't believe that they would transport a UFO unwrapped as they say down a city highway. But after doing a little research on this incident and reading your thread, We may have had a craft of some sort land on the highway. That would explain why they didn't have time to do the usual because even if they would have closed the highway to take time, people would have been able to see and they definitely wanted this out while it was night and not rush hour traffic. That was definitely a saucer object on that flatbed, for some reason more and more incidents of UFO's and govt. agents running around to quiet things have increased exponentially. Something is in the works for disclosure.

Because it`s two different aircraft types. The F-35 is going to undergo drop testing at Vaught (which is different than the UK testing). The airframe on the truck is an F-22, as is the one in the picture on the barge. They assemble the center fuselage and attach the wings in Ft. Worth (which is also where they assemble the F-35). That also explains the police escort. With the wings on, it blocks the other lanes. Normally they don`t have the wings on, so only require escort cars.

While I understand what you're say.... imagine this.

You want something kept secret very badly.

However, if you creep about and keep things hidden/covered people will ask questions...questions you're not about to answer, or if you do will have to lie about. Chances are, because you're not answering (and if you do people don't believe you anyway) questions will always be asked. People will always be speculating, asking awkward questions, if there's any chance there might be something there.

Now turn that on it's head .... Instead of keeping that something covered up, hidden, etc, DON'T. Transport it so everyone can see it. Who the hell is going to take seriously the scenario of the military transporting a crashed/landed UFO, UNCOVERED, on the back of a truck, on a main highway, so all and sundry can see it?

It has to be something else, most 'rational' people would argue. They would NEVER do that, NEVER be THAT stupid.

The only thing they had to do that night is keep anyone from getting up too close, have a good look, and/or run the risk of a motor accident.

Other than that, WHO in their right mind is going to believe they transported a UFO, uncovered, on a main highway, on the back of a truck. It's just too RIDICULOUS for words, isn't it?

or is it?

There's a few points to be made about this post.

1. Things are not a UFO if they are on the ground. At this point, it's only an unidentified object, which pass down the freeway right by you and me thousands of times a day.

2. There are two curiosities in the photos, one being the shape of the object. The second being the light that is not of the standard hue of highway street lamps along I-20. Nor those of headlamps on most government owned vehicles.

Concerning the first, while it does appear odd and saucerish, due to the quality of the photos, one must examine the shape in more detail, and try to draw conclusions abotu what else it could be.

Let's take a look at some minor points I made in the first (and better) photo. The first link is the unedited (slightly enlarged) version. And the second I have made some points on that are explained in text below.

Now then, lets start with the shape. On the photo, where I marked with yellow dots on the object, this area is of most importance to me. Since we cannot tell clearly if it is merely light reflecting off of the object as it bounces off of the pavement, or if it is light passing THROUGH the object, like something that may be covered by a tightly wrapped mesh tarp. Keep in mind, that if you're transporting military goods, you're not going to use a typical "I got this at Wal-Mart!" blue tarp.

If the object was indeed solid, and not covered in any way by a tarp or any other means of obscuring it's shape or size, then we can reasonably assume that it's a dull material due to the amount of light reflected.

Moving on, and here's where it gets interesting to me. Should this be a normal object of any kind, the light (circled in red) is clearly NOT coming from street lamps or cars around it. There is only two possibilities in my opinion. Either the light is coming from the rear of the truck, as some of them (especially those who haul large loads) are equipped with large halogen lamps much like the typical 'flood light' some people attach to their houses or even some boats. If it was not coming from the truck, then it was coming from the DPD Helicopter.

I should mention that I have seen the DPD chopper in action more than once, and it's spotlight is that exact color of light, and if you've seen police chases on TV, you've likely seen the same thing. I also have family who own/have owned their own heavy transport business (my father has actually transported tanks in his lifetime), and the lights on the backs of those trucks put off similar light, though are rarely left on when transporting, due to obvious reasons.

Lastly, I have read multiple reports regarding the incident, and while most of them vary in details, the time is somewhat inconsistant. I have ready 9:30PM, to Late PM - Early AM. In my personal experience living around DFW for the majority of my lifetime, there is no way they transported something like that down Interstate 20 anytime before 1AM. In fact, the only time I have ever taken 20 and not seen at least 5-10 cars per mile would be 2-4AM on a Sunday.

The combination of Church goers sleeping and party goers passed out around this time leaves for little population on the freeways at that time.

On a final note, I find it interesting that this hadn't caught my attention sooner. I would guess that this was not an actual flying craft, but perhaps some other secretive object. Regardless, there's nothing left of it but foggy trails and memories. A video would be great for further speculations...

edit: the pictures work, but apparently not embedded... my apologies.

I guess what bothers me after thinking about it is this comment:

He was instructed if the drivers were already on the interstate, to pull them over and hold them there until the convoy passed, using his car and himself, if possible to shield the driver and any passengers from seeing the flatbed as it passed by and continued down the road.

Why would they need to do this? I mean, aside from FAILING to do this, since we see civilian cars all around that truck in the photo (taken by another civilian).

You block on onramps. You wait I dunno.. 3 minutes? And the highway will be clear, as long as you block the highway itself wherever the flatbed starts its journey. Unless you are suggesting that some cars with any sort of a headstart, were actually overtaken by a flatbed carrying an object? Even a few minutes wait guarantees more than 3 miles of clear highway.

Also, I'm getting weary of these amazing reports by unnamed people, who can provide absolutely no testimony themselves, or proof of any kind, other than their "word" that they are telling the truth. Clandenstine agents, no reports of civvies being pulled over, obvious holes in the story since we SEE the truck surrounded by normal cars... I think this is bunk. If the fellow can cough up a bit more proof or corroberation of some kind, I'm all ears.

reply to post by PsykoOps

Exactly what I was thinking. Just giving the length of time served greatly narrows down the list. It's amazing how these stories come up that swear not to identify the subject, but give very telling clues as to EASILY identify the subject in question.

If you wanted to protect someone's identity you eliminate ALL clues that could identify them.

They should have just said a veteran of the Dallas police department. They should not have mentioned gender or that the individual had a family either.

When I read deliberate (imho) slips like this, I makes me question the authenticity of the story as the writer has now knowingly committed a major violation of trust with regards to the individual's identity.

I am so certain I saw a clear as day video of a saucer on a flatbed. It is a real loss I can't find it right now.

It might be the video that no longer works in this thread about the event, but I can't tell:
Allegedly UFO was Transported down Dallas Highway

I too saw the video of which you speak, a large flatbed truck with a saucer shaped object on the back. From what i recall the video was taken from an elevated position looking down onto the passing truck that travelled from right to left and out of shot.

But there are no wings on this airframe is there?? Look at the second pic. It only over hangs the trailer by approx 5-6ft.

reply to post by UKWO1Phot

The F-22 wing is essentially what is known as a supercritical wing. That means that it is as thin as they could make it and still provide lift. It would be very easy to not see them from the angle and blurriness of the pics.
