Kansas residents mistook the fuselage of a Navy X-47B unmanned aircraft being shipped across country by truck for a flying saucer that had been found by public officials, reports Spencer Ackerman at Wired's Danger Room blog
“People were calling in saying, ‘Oh they think they found a flying saucer,’ ” Donetta Godsey of the Winfield Daily Courier told the local ABC News affiliate.
What they were seeing was the fuselage of the Navy's new carrier-based UAV being transported from California's Edwards Air Force Base to Patuxent River, Md.
