In the sky! A bird? A plane? A ... UFO?
<snip>
It sounds like a tired joke--but a group of airline employees insist they are in earnest, and they are upset that neither their bosses nor the government will take them seriously.

A flying saucerlike object hovered low over O'Hare International Airport for several minutes before bolting through thick clouds with such intense energy that it left an eerie hole in overcast skies, said some United Airlines employees who observed the phenomenon.
</snip>

Judge for yourself. Video attached.

1. The only video is of a news broadcast.
Was there footage of the sighting? If so, there's no link to it.

3. Uh oh. One of our prototypes!
Gosh, I'm really sorry, it just took off without our permission.




Actually, I've been working on something which can fly in the same way. It's either completely absurd, and I'm not seeing something in the physics, or it's incredibly simple and everyone in the world has missed it. I don't know until I built a prototype!
