Or little men in green coveralls. We report, you decide. The UFO “Truthers” were all het up about the mysterious destruction of a British wind turbine. There appears to be a much more mundane explanation.
The UFO allegedly responsible for wrecking a wind turbine could have been a secret unmanned stealth bomber on test flights.
The claim came from Ministry of Defence insiders who reportedly said that a black delta-wing craft called Taranis was making test runs on the coastal bombing ranges at Donna Nook and North Coates in Lincolnshire, near to the site of the damaged turbine.
The Taranis, named after the Celtic god of thunder, is about the same size as a Hawk jet and is equipped with stealth equipment and an ‘autonomous’ artificial intelligence system.
On the other hand, the village where the incident occurred has no stores, no pub (scandal!) and has a commercial district entirely consisting of a single ice cream parlor.
Yesterday your reporter visited the scene and, while I failed to see any little green men, I did find four little men in green uniforms.
But they had arrived by van, not spaceship, and worked for Ecotricity, the company that built the wind farm.
Obviously, the choice here is a) a government cover up or b) aliens intent on finding the best fudge ripple in the universe. We already know what the truthers will believe. Meanwhile. we’re going to dig into that half gallon of fudge ripple our visitors dropped off after asking directions to the nearest body shop.
