+ - Man Build's Personal UFO

Submitted by Dave's Banjo
Dave's Banjo (666) writes "Fox news has a story about a man building his own UFO. From the article:
Thirty years ago, when Carrington was 27 and obsessed with science fiction, he set out to build a UFO look-alike. Despite his lack of engineering experience, Carrington pored over books, magazines and studies about aviation and spent nearly $60,000 for some of the materials needed for this saucer.
I think it will be great if he pulls it off, though he will have to strip the 'U' from the title. Man builds 'FO' which, let's face it, doesn't sound nearly as cool.
