Japanese Build and Demonstrate Small, Spherical Flying Machine


Corn­wall, UK: That’s not a Spitfire!

COMMENT: A video has been posted of the demon­stra­tion of a small, sphere-shaped fly­ing machine built for the Japan­ese Defense Min­istry and pro­jected as a recon­nais­sance device.

Clever in design, the tech­nol­ogy is rel­a­tively sim­ple and the device was built from com­monly avail­able stock for a ridicu­lously low cost ($1400 U.S.)

Over the years we have exam­ined the polit­i­cal impli­ca­tions of the UFO phe­nom­e­non, as well as mate­r­ial indi­cat­ing that disc-shaped fly­ing machines date back to the clos­ing stage of World War II.

With 42% of col­lege grad­u­ates in a poll stat­ing that they believed earth had been vis­ited by space aliens in the past, the issue of UFO’s war­rants seri­ous exam­i­na­tion within a polit­i­cal and soci­o­log­i­cal context.

Unfor­tu­nately, with an intim­i­dat­ing land­scape of dis­in­for­ma­tion and the gen­eral view that the entire topic of UFO’s is either vul­gar and/or silly, seri­ous exam­i­na­tion of the polit­i­cal and social aspects of the inquiry are sparse.

In a fun­da­men­tal way, the video of this rel­a­tively  sim­ple, inex­pen­sive fly­ing machine should edu­cate as to the fact that the notion of a “round” or disc-shaped air­craft is rel­a­tively down-to-earth.

Disc-shaped fly­ing machines (per­haps mar­ried to other clan­des­tine, advanced tech­nolo­gies) could be used for decep­tion, intim­i­da­tion and manip­u­la­tion of large pop­u­la­tions for the pur­poses  of polit­i­cal and eco­nomic control.

Such a strat­a­gem could prove par­tic­u­larly effec­tive with an igno­rant, des­per­ate, economically-deprived pop­u­la­tion liv­ing in a time of impend­ing or ongo­ing eco­log­i­cal collapse.

The Japan­ese device informs us of the need to be aware of the poten­tial for such manip­u­la­tion. The pos­si­bil­ity that larger and more sophis­ti­cated machines of this type have been man­u­fac­tured by capa­ble nation-states should be care­fully considered.

There cer­tainly is rea­son to be vig­i­lant in this regard:

“Expert Says Sal­vaged Police Drone is ‘Highly Spec­u­la­tive’ rea­son for UFO Sight­ing over Widnes“by Oliver Roy,  [Run­corn & Widnes Weekly News]Run­corn & Widnes Weekly News; 11/10/011.

A respected ufol­o­gist has sug­gested that a mys­te­ri­ous craft sighted over Widnes could have been a sal­vaged police drone.

Jenny Ran­dles was respond­ing to a recent Liv­er­pool Echo story that revealed a £13,000 unmanned aer­ial vehi­cle (UAV) belong­ing to Mersey­side Police had crashed and was thought to be at the bot­tom of the Mersey.

She believes the machine could be respon­si­ble for a sight­ing of a ‘stealth orb’ over Liv­er­pool Road in Widnes in May.

Art stu­dent Lau­rence Baker, 17, of Milling­ton Close, had told the Weekly News that a black spher­i­cal craft with an anten­nae had zoomed overhead.

Lau­rence was con­fi­dent the craft was not from outer space but prob­a­bly mil­i­tary. [Ital­ics are mine–D.E.]

Although the police drone was offi­cially lost in Feb­ru­ary 2010 Jenny believes some­one could have recov­ered and repaired the wreck­age then put it back into action. She said a drone is ‘basi­cally a highly-sophisticated model heli­copter and not beyond the means of some­one with the skills to make it work’.

Mersey­side Police has since decided not to invest fur­ther in drones.

Jenny said: “I guess it is pos­si­ble that some­one did find it and was able to fix it up and is secretly fly­ing it about and as a result gen­er­at­ing UFO scares like the one at Widnes this May.

It is basi­cally a highly-sophisticated model heli­copter so not beyond the means of some­one with the req­ui­site skills to get work­ing. But that is, of course, highly spec­u­la­tive. [Ital­ics are mine–D.E.]

“How­ever, the only way the drone could be the cause of the Widnes sight­ing is if it had been miss­ing from Mersey­side Police.

  1. Very inter­est­ing stuff indeed, Dave. I won­der if the U.S.‘ll build some­thing like that?

  2. Steven: Maybe the U.S., and/or other coun­tries already have!

    Navy inks deal to put laser-guided mis­siles on drones

    © Novem­ber 11, 2011

    By W.J. Hennigan

    Los Ange­les Times


    In 100 years of naval avi­a­tion, only the most expe­ri­enced com­bat pilots have per­formed the dif­fi­cult task of launch­ing an attack on a nearby tar­get and return­ing the air­craft to a ship as it bobs in the ocean.

    Now that tricky task is being turned over to unmanned drones.

    With a $17 mil­lion con­tract, the Navy has taken the first step in arm­ing its fleet of drone heli­copters with laser-guided mis­siles to blast enemy tar­gets. The Northrop Grum­man Corp.-made MQ-8B Fire Scout would be the Navy’s first sea-based unmanned sys­tem to carry weapons when it’s deliv­ered within 15 months.

    “It’s a very sig­nif­i­cant moment in naval his­tory,” said Mark L. Evans, a his­to­rian at the Naval His­tory and Her­itage Com­mand. “The weaponiza­tion of this air­craft rep­re­sents a quan­tum leap in tech­nol­ogy com­pared to what has come before.

  4. @Dave: Actu­ally, I do now remem­ber that the Air Force had a pro­gram as long ago as the ‘50s.......guess my mem­ory slipped a bit:

    @Pterrafractyl: Yikes. Wouldn’t wanna be tar­geted by one of those. Sad thing is, any one of the more pow­er­ful white suprema­cist groups could man­age to get enough con­nec­tions to buy one of these, and if that hap­pens, I might just make a run for Canada......

  5. pst this is noth­ing, have you seen the space plane yet?


    i see the space race is on again, ” hey look where i can place my pay­load“
    with China and Rus­sia hav­ing ambi­tious plans

    Moth­er­jones was blabing on about out nuclear arsenal

    I’m not a Jesus per­son, but Project Blue Beam seems to be the cor­rect concept.

  7. Dave,

    Why isn’t there more press on the Stealth Helicopter?

    The one that crashed in Pakistan.

    I think this is a MAJOR event mainly because the thing is so quiet... Alien Abduc­tion and all and the Dulce BS.

  8. @Leif: Some­how, I’m not buy­ing the whole story. Mother Jones usu­ally puts out some good stuff, but only China & India have built new nukes since around 1994 or so. And frankly, I believe that fear­mon­ger­ing is VERY much a part of TPTB’s agenda. They want peo­ple to worry about WW3, yet they largely have asked us to ignore nuclear terrorism(with the excep­tion of occa­sional fear­mon­ger­ing pieces)......interesting, huh?
