Did anyone else see the flying-saucer shaped object that was concealed on a flatbed semi and being escorted by the state police? I assume it's some sort of publicity stunt or just a coincidence, but it's getting a lot of media attention. What do you guys think?

Yeah. They stopped at a rest stop on I57 and the ISP denied civilian entrance to the rest stop until it left. Also had a 6 car escort while en route.

Agreed. Anything legit would have been well concealed, moved at night, and likely had a military/gov't escort as opposed to state police. I just wanna know if anyone knows something I don't.

If you Google "UFO on flatbed truck" you get a lot of the same description as here but driving through Dallas, Kansas, etc.

I didn't see it fly so UFO would not be the correct term. :D
I never called it that though. "Ufo?" <---- that's a question lol.
On the news they repeatedly referred to it as a flying saucer, which is a little ridiculous. Sure, it has the generalized shape of what we assume one would look like.. but i still think it's a publicity stunt of some kind.

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

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 :eek:)
