Called the Zohal - or Saturn in English - it said the unmanned spaceship is designed for 'aerial imaging' but added it can be used for 'various missions'.


The hardline Fars news agency illustrated its story with a photo of a flying saucer, akin to one appearing in a 1950s Hollywood B-movie, hovering over an unidentified wooded landscape

The hardline Fars news agency illustrated its story with a photo of a flying saucer, akin to one appearing in a 1950s Hollywood B-movie, hovering over an unidentified wooded landscape. The reports gave no indication of the spaceship’s size. But they indicated it was small by claiming, somewhat bizarrely, that it can also fly indoors. 'Easy transportation and launch and flying, making less noise, are some of the advantages of the device,' said ISNA, Iran’s students’ news agency

Seem like those things would be easy pickings for a WWII P- 51. Probably would catch hell from a Cessna with a door gunner.

Ok, you have a pie pan that can take off and crash, I buy that one..

Anti gravity saucer, awesome...highly unlikely, but some one will discover that one day...perhaps Farrakhan has promised the mother ship technology to them if they “Keeeel all of the Christians and Jews”..

Someone really does need to put that guy in the pic. I wish I knew how to do it.
I can’t even remember his name right now but I sure can see him standing under the flying saucer.

“True, just no antigravity propulsion yet..that we know of.”

Shhh...I have it of reliable sources that it is not anti-gravity......sequestered between the inner and outer skin of the saucer are carefully design and manufactured......(looking over my shoulder both ways)...flying carpets.

Yep, you heard me.....flying carpets.

Put that in you hookah and smoke it.

“Maybe they’ll all fly to another planet.”

Tactically, not a good move. They haven’t killed all the infidels on this planet yet, leaving their rear exposed.

If they fail to do that prior to leaving....they know someone coming after them.

I imagine he was there, covertly, to squirrel out (can’t use ferret) the saucer.

He came back empty pawed.
