Did The US Military Really Try To Smuggle A UFO Through Kansas In Plain Daylight?

An UFO was seen on top of a military truck four days ago travelling down US 77. Residents of Cowley County, Kansas, thought the military were trying to haul an alien spaceship wrapped in plastic. On plain sight. In daylight.

Come on Cowley County citizens, you can do better than this.

The answer is more mundane than that: the UFO was actually an X-47B Unmanned Combat Air System, a drone designed to operate from aircraft carriers. Northrop Grumman has confirmed they were shipping the lethal wing to the Naval Air Station Patuxent River, Maryland. There it will be tested on an airstrip designed as a carrier runway.

If you watch the video, however, what will really surprise you is its size. This thing is gigantic. [Defense Tech]
