Building an UFO with his own two hands. Alfie Carrington is a construction worker in Michigan and he's building a flying saucer. He's actually spent the past 30 years and a lot of money building it.

He can get it out of the garage... it's a mockup. He's not trying to fly into 'outer space'... it's not a spaceship per se, he's invented a vertical lift saucer that is meant to eventually replace the automobile. Flights are estimated to be at the 300' mark and roughly 500 miles per hour.

I'm doing a documentary on him as I type this.

What's odd is that after 30 years he hasn't developed a propulsion device (or if he has, he's kept it secret from his partner and only shared the theory). Anyone can develop an aerodynamic saucer, it's getting it to fly that's the problem.

wow, I was about to comment very negatively, but hey, if it is his passion, let it be. Ain't hurting nobody. Wish you many hours of happyness, dude. And don't visit Russia, they eat squeaky alien saucer pilots there ;)

One question though : does it fit through the garage door ?
:) :) :)
