Residents of Cowley County, Kansas couldn’t believe their eyes as what looked like a flying saucer was transported by semi truck through their town.
The strange 32 ft craft had onlookers puzzled. Not the least of whom was the town’s sheriff Don Read, who was actually contacted by the trucking company to help maneuver the wide load through the city streets.
“They told us that it was an aircraft and that they had explored other ways to transport it but this was the best way for them to do it and they asked us not to say a whole lot about it,” said Read.
Undersheriff Bill Mueller speculated to KSN that it was an experimental aircraft from Northrop Grumman, possibly an unmanned drone.
The craft’s final destination is reportedly somewhere in Maryland. For more on the story, visit the KSN website here: It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s a…UFO?
Another witness spotted the craft being towed through Ponca City, Ok on December 11. He managed to capture a quick video as it passed him. According the the witness details: This very large craft was driving through Ponca City, Ok just before noon on (12-11-2011). It was escorted by a convoy of about 15 marked and unmarked law enforcement vehicles headed north.
