Well not a UFO because it wouldn't be unknown, would it...
The story went that Gary Numan built a flying disc, flew it, and crashed into someone's back yard.
Does ANYONE remember hearing this or have ANY information supporting OR debunking this?

I don't know. I have never heard of Gary Numan.

Could you provide us with a video of him, or maybe a link of any of his work/claims?

He crashed, but it wasn't a UFO:

seems like gary is just a UFO fanboy, maybe this excerpt explains how this story may have started.

gary's being a ufo head + plane crash = urban myth

or considering he is a music artist, i'd call it publicity stunt.


FT: On your first two single releases with Tubeway Army – before you were known as Gary Numan – you used the pseudonym 'Valerian' and drummer Jess Lidyard was 'Rael'. Could you tell us more about this choice of names, or the –'spaceman' image you created?

Gary Numan: I used to drive by a building in West London that had ‘Valerian’ written on it and I thought it had a nice ring to it. I didn't realise it was a flowering herb until later. That name and the 'spaceman' image are just two of the many embarrassing things that come back to haunt me from time to time. I was, and still am, very interested in stories about people that have been, or claim to have been, abducted by aliens. I'm not the sci-fi fan that I used to be, but I still find all that stuff fascinating.

FT: There are many documented cases of pilots reporting sightings of UFOs, or at least things they couldn't explain. You were once a very active pilot... in all your years of flying, did you ever see anything that, whether you're sceptical or not about such things, remains hard to explain?

GN: Nothing at all, I'm sad to say. I wish I had. The most alarming thing that happened to me in the air was when I had bits fall off an aeroplane I was flying upside down, which certainly came as a surprise. I've also had them catch fire, break down, and scare the # out of me on more than one occasion, but nothing of an alien or supernatural nature. I did see something that I have never been able to explain when I was driving home from the studio one night – a large light in the shape of an upside down pyramid focused at a point on the road near me. I also saw a ghost once, so I am completely open to the existence of such things, both alien and supernatural.

maybe gary dressed up a plane like a ufo, hence why it crashed.
