I'm pretty sure if they were gonna transport a flying saucer they wouldn't just strap it to a flatbed truck...

Or would they......

Prolly a carnival ride, I love the gravitron!


the closer you are to danger, the further away you are from harm

sometimes the best place to hide is right out in the open


...tons of quotes from great movies to answer your statement. They rely on statements of certainty like yours to conceal their movements. "Nah, thats not a REAL flying saucer, otherwise I wouldn't be seeing it"...riiiight.

At the end of the video in the KSN article, the sheriff said he was told that it was an experimental aircraft. That's obviously what it is. A top secret man made aircraft. It looks to me like it would be the type of aircraft that people often mistake for UFO's. It is my firm belief that man made crafts like this one are responsible for at least 50% of all UFO's sightings.

A satelite dish with landing gear??

I'm not saying its a saucer, but i really don't think its a DISH..


It's not a dish and it doesn't have landing gear.

It's on a dolly.

Either

A. .Prop for movie or TV

B. Part of a Psy-Op

C. A mistaken piece of machinery

D. Experimental Aircraft "terrestrial origin"

There were no military vehicles. It was not covered with a tarp or crated. There were state police escorting it. That means it is not a classified craft. Heck a C130 or large cargo plane could transport that thing if that was the case. Police often escort wide loads along with a pilot car. And you will see things like "property of US Government" and Department of alphabet agency here ____ . This looks like something civilian owned. I would bet the farm part of some larger machinery imo. They dont wheel several million dollar flying saucers around on dolleys either.

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.




Seems like sh!t technology if you cant even build a drone to take off and land on its own.

The only time it becomes useful is if this thing was going into the upper atmosphere at which point it would be more of a fast moving satellite than a drone. All semantics i suppose.

Why is this thread still going? The mystery was solved many pages ago. It was a Northrop Grumman X-47B unmanned aerial vehicle being transported to Naval Air Station Patuxent River, Maryland, for carrier suitability tests. That's it. End of story.

The interest in the reasons why its been transported on a flatbed truck is why this thread is still going. Is there something thats bothering you by this thread?

That looks a lot like this:


I'm not sure what the first thing was, but I know there was a thread here about it: www.abovetopsecret.com...

I didn't follow that thread to find out what it really was, but it's an interesting place to start!


This could just be a large radar dish for the NSA or something.

Moving it under a tarp, at night or dangling below a cargo chopper would be even more noticeable that this is, maybe it was too large to fit inside a cargo aeroplane too.

Moving it in broad daylight, on an everyday truck (who's operator doesn't know the difference between 'Oversize load and Oversized load btw) invites thinking and conclusions along the lines of what a lot of posters have said in this thread. "It CAN'T be a UFO in broad daylight"..."It's probably a drone"..."There's NO WAY the agency would let a UFO be moved around in the open like this"..."It HAS to be a movie prop" and so on.

If this was moved in the dead of night, the comments would be markedly different i suspect. "If it's not a UFO, then why the hell are they moving it in secret, under cover of darkness"..."I saw it come down the street at 2am, cops were everywhere, lights flashing and everything"..."It was like something out of Close encounters"..."Really eerie sight, this huge UFO being moved through town, it was surreal"...and so on.

If this thing is actually a drone (an Earth made one at any rate!), it's the biggest i've ever seen. Bigger even than a manned fighter jet by the looks of it.

Thank you. You hit the nail on the head

PS: The Police escorts you see are STATE POLICE.

It couls even be radar dishes that are turned facing each other for easier transport. You know like for NASA or the NSA. Dishes that are facing like this ()

And if the authorities tell you it's raining while they are stood pissing on you, would you think you were having bad weather too?

Don't they?

You'd know this how then?

Hypothetical...US manage to get their hands on a UFO, no power, no pilots, not even an opening or a hatch.

How do they move it around a lab, workshop or out of a hanger without sitting the thing on a Dolley?

Are you joking? I'd hate to offend you if you're only joking. Just because it's getting a piggy back doesn't mean it can't take off on its own.

I can add to the validity of this. I will possibly be written off since this is my first post, but I have been coming to ATS for a couple of years now. This is the only topic I have ever been able to directly comment on.

I have a friend who works for the Cherokee County Kansas Sheriff's Department as a deputy. Northrop Gruman parked this rig at the county lot until night. A couple of deputies were paid to guard the truck. Kansas DOT would only allow the shipment to be moved during the day and Missouri DOT would only allow it to be moved at night, so it had to be parked just outside of Missouri until nightfall then the transport could start up again.

This deputy was told by the N.G. guy (that's how he was described to me) that it was an X47B Drone. He said that while they pulled guard there were several locals who pulled in and were convinced it was a UFO. But it most definitely was not. There was a police escort in front of and behind the truck at all times during transportation and the unit was never left alone. That is all that I have to add to the topic. Hope someone actually reads this!
