This is one example of why I love ATS. This post caught my eye in the Recent threads list. It turned out to be a recent comment on a post, the OP of which is below, from 2006 that had no flags or stars.
I was not yet a member but I was a lurker back then. I don’t remember seeing it, though.
The replies were wonderful, from locals; and they did research and posted insights…
Palmerston Ont. Flying Saucer?

I have searched and searched the web for any info on this, trying to find out if it was true or not. But as the story goes……
I was in Palmerston Ontario Canada about 13 years ago. Whilst I was in town, I was told by no less that 14 people, most of them mature shop owners, that an older gentleman in town had actually designed and built a flying saucer type vehicle in the upstaairs of his house. Apparently he was certain it would fly, and was trying to get the Canadian Government to help him pay to remove the roof from his house.
Now at first this just sounded like an old wives tale based on the man who built a boat in his basement, but made it larger than the door. But then the locals told me they themselves had heard weird noises from his home, and seen rotating lights filling every upstairs window. The more I talked to the locals in my week I was there, the more I believed. But unfortunately I was not able to go and visit the man. I was on a fairly tight schedule, and no matter how hard I tried I could not get the free time to try to visit him.
My question is, has anyone else here heard of this? I have searched the web, but to no avail. If I can’t find any information, I plan on maybe next summer going back to Palmerston. But only time will tell.
Those efforts led to the confirmation of the story, from readers who knew the guy; and a link to an article about it which I have below. The last post was a report that the fellow had passed on, sadly.
Gosh, if only it had gotten the proper funding. Things would be different!
