From the tiny pic looks like a aircraft fusalage minus wings and tail. Looks like one of those military drones that look kinda like a b2 bomber. The wheel looks like an aircraft landing gear.

Yeah, I think Jon's got it figured out. This was one in Kansas.

Yeah, i think you're right. Northbound on I57 would mean it's headed to Chicago. Naval. Not anything i would have experience with.

If it was anything of UFO importance it would have been covered up , moved discreetly at night . . However it got lots of talk around mid state IL .

That's a link to a summarized version of the story. Could be a drone? But every drone I've ever seen/used in my military career looks nothing like that. And is muuuuch smaller.

If it was actually a UFO, nobody would ever see it. As said before, it would be transported at night, and possibly made to look like something else.

More than likely, it would be transported by air if possible. I think an Airbus A300-600ST (Super Transporter) would be able to do this.




(Yes, that is part of another plane )
