Or you can compare this:

To the side view photos on the CoastToCoast link. (on the last page: 9)

It looks exactly the same but with the folding winglets taken off for transport.

I thought it was a UFO for all of 2minutes too, then did some research. Especially when the sheriff says in the original article that Northrop-Grumman was involved, and the X-47 is made by them too; put 2 & 2 together...

Maybe they are doing a movie?

This is from Russia, May 2009- not sure if it's the same object that the OP saw but interesting nonetheless....

This was exactly my thought as well! If you look at the front of the craft on the flatbed and the front of the X47-B, they look almost exactly alike... except for the wings. I also thought the wings could be taken off for transport. It makes sense they removed them since they had to remove signs on the freeway in order to move it without wings! At first I thought it would be a major &^% to remove the wings, but it would be more of a ^%$^ to remove signs, concrete, buildings and such. Curious.. what is the wing span on the X47-B? Looking it up....

how fast do loaded flat bed trucks travel in the states?

Or have the US military become so skint they retired their adapted 747 and now piggyback launch their UFO's - sorry, I meant drones - from off the back of a speeding... 55mph FLAT BED TRUCK!

ST. LOUIS — Boeing’s newest spy drone, the Phantom Ray, got its first taste of the air Monday while hitching a ride on a 747 designed to ferry the space shuttle. It was a first for the drone, which is a test bed for advanced UAV technologies, but it was also a big day for NASA, which proved it can find new uses for space shuttle technologies after the shuttles retire.

Too round to be the Navy drone. The Navy drone is more of a triangle shape.

I would think 62" feet would be too wide to drive down most interstate highways. My true curiosity is this.....

Why are they so relaxed to transport these in broad daylight? Why aren't they transporting them on military cargo planes or just flying the dam$ things to their destination? They're bombarding us about the drones in our govt. controlled media, and now they're parading them in front of us in broad daylight..... in Main Street America!

Whatever it is, its most likely concealed in some kind of special housing to prevent identification. They do this with concept cars im sure they would do this with drones.

Yup.. it's obviously wrapped in the same material the nicer vehicles are when they're transported by truck. If any of you've seen that... the dimensions of the plastic are different from the vehicle's body. It's cheaper to cut the corners than hug unnecessary air.

I'm not really into ufo's & such... However, if you watch the area 51 episode of Brad Metzlers decoded, you will see the exact same thing... Flatbed semi with disk shaped something & a police escort. I still can't understand why people automatically jump to the conclusion that disk shaped objects are ufo's... Seems that image has been programmed into people through film & television since the 40's... If there are aliens & ufo's, I'm pretty sure they would have a fancy new 2012 model... Anyway, I don't believe in this stuff... Back to real life problems that need to be addressed .

That's really sketchy lol..If state police is involved with the transportation, then I don't think it is anything too extraordinary. Nothing smells fishy over here; the feds would have done a crappy job covering it up if the anomaly was significant.

its a ufo, but it belongs to the government. Sometimes, things are what they seem...

To my knowledge Alien Craft don't have landing gear that roll around on Goodyear Tires but this should be a hint to everyone that many of the UFOs we have been seeing are in fact ours and our Military and Military Contractors have technology way beyond the combustion engine. Someday, during or after the time when the Military and those with them have helped to wipe out a significant number of the useless eaters, I am sure the world will see a new day full of such craft and technologies that will take the inheritors of planet earth to the stars.

Looks like the sports model.

I'm guessing Phage is having his vehicle transported because it has a broken gravity distortion drive, and there's not exactly a mechanic on every corner that can fix one of those...

Flight of the Navigator prop (such an awesome movie!):

What I loved about this movie was how the UFO was made organic (and as such believable) - if I could envision anything of what a UFO would be like, this movie UFO is right on the money...which worries the more, what inspired the artist (some fact and a hint of fiction)?

The government has other ways to transport a real UFO so this is likely a top secret aircraft like the replacement for the B2 bomber.

Tongue in cheek i assume?

'A Top secret replacement for the B2 bomber' (or similar)' hauled on an uncovered lorry in full view of...everyone and his dog?

You know, i REALLY wish the US was as crap at keeping secrets as you imply, then we'd know the truth about all the stuff we all rabbit on about on here day after day!

Then again, they did just give a super secret stealth (although not THAT stealthy apparently, and no longer very secret) drone to Iran for them to take a gander at, so who knows...the world is going from bad to worse i suppose, so why should the art of keeping secrets be any exception.

It could be a double bluff of course...who the hell is ever going to believe a genuine, captured ET or ED craft is going to be hauled out in the open like this?

Or it could be an amusement park ornament.

I haven't read the entire thread but I remember back in late 2010 or early 2011 there was a youtube video of a group of friends chasing down something that looks just like that. There was a thread made here, it was kind of a big topic.

I still never found out what these things are.. pretty strange things in pretty strange times to say the least.

That is exactly what it is.

Nothing to see here.
