UFO

There was UFO sighting here in my little town last night. It flew overhead for approximately 10 minutes before returning to wherever it came from.
I was lucky enough to have my camera handy so that I could document what I saw.

Well it is obvious that it's a helicopter so it's not really unidentifiable but still it kept flying over the yard
It actually landed several times in the back yard and Duke was going crazy. I was afraid for his safety.


It finally landed in the road and I approached it with caution. I could see the pilot and I called out to him but there was no reply.
Finally Wade came over, scooped it up and took it in the house to put it back on it's charger. And so ends another adventure in small town America.

  1. Wow, those shots had me fooled - I was sure it was a real one and was thinking you must have one huge backyard! The middle pic is especially gorgeous.

  2. LOL, you definitely had me fooled there for a minute...especially as I did have a helicopter land in my neighbors yard...or rather the parking lot behind her yard.

  3. We have a neighbor that flies an airplane. It's way cool and he's really good at it too.

    Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

  9. Oh, you have actual drivers in that thing? That's cool. Most times the cabin is empty in those little fliers--which is a bummer.

    We used to do those estes rockets when we were kids. And then again with our kids. Does your husband ever shoot those off?

  18. Great pictures Ann. I thought it was real until you said it landed in the yard.

    Now I am jealous. I have always wanted one. Ask Wade if I can come over and play.LOL

  22. I was sure it was the real one in the first picture. My sons had the indoor one not as nice as Wade ones.

  23. I can only imagine Duke's reaction to the helicopter. It can double as a dog toy.

  24. even though I live with a remote control addict, I thought the first two shots were for real, until you said it landed in the back yard. I LOVE that second shot with the pink sky and it looks so real, i kept looking for men to drop out of it on those long ropes like they do in the action movies. i know Duke was excited. once hubby put a remote control boat in our pool, and our dog Max went crazy, then he got a remote control truck and Max chased it till his tongue hung out. the truck got traded to our pastors 7 year old son, he got a remote control plane for Christmas and could not fly it, so hubby traded him the truck for the plane and they were both happy

  27. I really thought it was real in your sky pictures. Funny. My boys each had received one of these for Christmas a couple of years ago. They have had a lot of fun with them.
