Military Drone Mistaken for UFO in Washington
I’m glad that people are out there, watching the skies (or the highways, in this case). But I’m not quite sure why these same people would believe that the U.S. Government, if they did indeed had an alien spacecraft, would transport the UFO, uncovered, on a flatbed truck for all to see. Especially after years of cover-ups, half-truths and other lies about what they may or may not have.
Some folks in the Washington, D.C., area are buzzing about what they thought was a UFO atop a flatbed truck on the Capitol Beltway.
Turns out the disc-shaped object was just a run-of-the-mill military drone.
MyFoxDC reports that what drivers saw—and some photographed—around 11 p.m. Wednesday on Interstate 270, and then later on Interstate 495, was an X-47B Unmanned Combat Air System being transported from Edwards Air Force Base in California to the Naval Air Station Patuxent River in Maryland for testing.
During its travels through the D.C. area, local station WTOP reported a flurry of activity on Twitter about the strange-looking object.
This not the first time a drone was mistaken for something alien. Last year, a drone being transported by flatbed to Pax River for practicing aircraft carrier takeoffs and landings was also mistaken for a UFO, the Daily Caller reported.
And as the story states, this isn’t the first time a military drone was mistaken for a UFO. We blogged about this a few months back. Again, I’d like to think that our government would be a bit more slick about transporting an extraterrestrial vehicle. If they had one. Which I’m told they do not. Ahem.
