Residents in Cowley County, Kansas, were witness to a large, saucer-shaped craft being towed through their streets. Official explanations say the craft was an unmanned X-47B drone, which was on its way to the Naval Air Station in Patuxent, Maryland. Some residents, however, remain skeptical.

UFO in Tow on Kansas Streets?
Residents of Cowley County, Kansas, captured a large, unidentified object on video last Monday as it was being hauled through their streets—the military says it was an unmanned drone, but some still question the official explanation.
Last Monday, residents of Cowley County, Kansas, witnessed what many of them suspected was an unidentified flying object (UFO) being hauled by the military on a large flatbed truck down U.S. Hwy 77. Many people were caught by surprise at the sight of a very large, saucer-shaped object being trucked through their streets.
The tightly-concealed, shrink-wrapped, saucer-shaped object was about 30-feet wide, and was so large that local law enforcement officials had to remove some road signs in order for it to fit in the streets. Local officials immediately announced there was no need to be alarmed, and Sheriff Don Read told residents that it was a drone created by Northrop Grumman.
Almost magically, Brooks McKinney, senior manager of public relations at Northrop Grumman, appeared to explain that the aircraft was an X-47B drone, and that the craft was being transported to the Naval Air Station at Patuxent River, Maryland. Oddly, however, rather than speaking to the Associated Press, he chose to tell his story to “Life’s Little Mysteries,” an online magazine that is both informative and entertaining regarding life’s mysteries.
Officially, the X-47B unmanned drone has a wingspan of about 62 feet which, when folded, is just over 30 feet. It’s about 40 feet long, and stands about 10 feet high on 3 wheels. McKinney said Northrop Grumman built two X-47B drones for the Navy, both of which had been tested at Edwards Air Force Base in California. The one “seen” in Kansas was on its way to Maryland, while the other will remain in California. According to Northrop Grumman’s website, the X-47B drones will be used in 2013.
When queried about people’s reactions in Kansas about the craft being a possible UFO, McKinney commented, “Clearly people are interested in what’s going through town. It’s unusual to see a shrink-wrapped aircraft, especially one with that shape.” As for the residents who witnessed the craft, there was no way for them to confirm what they had seen as being either an unmanned military drone or something unearthly, as they had no way to see through the tight wrapping.
Adding to the mystery is the question of why the military didn’t just fly the craft to its destination in Maryland. Again, McKinney had the quick answer. “It’s difficult to fly an unmanned drone through commercial airspace. Piloted aircraft are one thing, but long trips for large aircraft without a human pilot on board are frowned upon for both aviation security reasons and practical concerns.” Sounds plausible.
But considering that we are accustomed to being told “less than the truth” by the government and new discoveries in deep space are happening almost on a daily basis, it’s easy to understand why the residents of Cowley County, Kansas, jumped to the conclusion that the craft may have been a UFO “under wraps.” Even “Life’s Little Mysteries,” the outlet in which McKinney released his statements about the incident, isn’t entirely convinced by his spin.
When smoke and mirrors are business as usual and scientific research has proven that the brain can easily be fooled into overlooking what is happening right in front of our eyes through the use of distraction techniques, all we know is that something happened. But “what” happened is still up in the air or, rather, is being transported across the country.
