A small town in France that built the country's only council-funded UFO landing pad has received its first craft after a 34 year wait.
Arès, near Bordeaux, southwestern France, has decided to try and attract Martians to its triangular "UFOport" with its very own fake Martian craft.
Made by a local artist, the man-made UFO "landed" on the strip yesterday and, it is hoped, will entice any hesitant extraterrestrials in search of a runway. A plaque reads: "Reserved for voyagers of the universe".
The local mayor liked the idea and decreed that extraterrestrial visitors would be exempt from airport tax and could take part in any local boules or mud-skating competitions.

sounds like a big waste of money to me. what if the ship is a lot bigger than the landing pad? what if aliens finally do show up but they are only three inches tall and we find out that earth creatures are insanely huge... Cut
