    Oh, I know what it is! Isn't that the Russian Mars probe that Steve Austin had to do battle with?

    I am pretty sure he hit the nail on the head. Last time I was at Knox I had a lot of down time and spent a lot of it at the museums work shops and staging area. If I haven't had a senior moment that's what it was a early remote control track.

    Looks to me like a skilled photographer took a picture with a turretless tank in the foreground and a water tank in the background. And yes, I have been to Roswell.

    I can assure you Sir...the pic was NOT taken by a skilled photographer...it was in fact taken by a regular ole dumbass...me!

    That rascal is still in the same spot as when I took the pic. I still say it is alien technology and I betcha if somebody makes a "Flying Alien Tank Movie" that rascal will be the star!!

    Sorry Bro...but you know the drill...Light Fighters recon, find, fix, exploit, contain...then attack. In this case, we better just leave the tank where it is!!
