A man-made UFO has become the first to touch down on France's only council-funded UFO landing pad.

Its the first time in 34 years that anything has landed on the pad that was built near Bordeaux in an attempt to attract extraterrestrial visitors. A plaque next to the pad reads "Reserved for voyagers of the universe".

"The operation has been dubbed: "'Allo Arès, ici UFO."

In the end, I think it's a funny idea, tourists like it and it gets the town on the news, but apart from that I don't really see the point. I don't think there was any other point and you've identified it pretty clearly. From the article: More than anything, the strip was ploy to attract tourists, up to 20,000 of whom visit every year. That's about 20,000 more tourists per year than they were getting before. Tourists buy things. Tourists boost the local economy. Like most things related to UFOs, UFOlogy, and the UFO=ET debate... it boils down to the almighty dollar.

Are you implying the reason why the Iranians reported a UFO incident in 1976, was for the so-called; "almighty dollar?" I don't think so! 1976 Iranian UFO Encounter Official government documents. My link Hi sky. No, I wasn't implying that at all. You might have noticed that I used the word most in the post you were quoting, not all. But if the report you link to is accurate... in that "This is one of the best documented UFO / Plane chases on record." then the accounting tends to de-legitimize other similar reports on record if you ask me. All I saw there was a story about a couple of planes ch... [More]

What does an 1976 Iranian UFO Encounter really have to do with building UFO landing pads in France, or even the pictured one in Canada. With the tourism revenue that is generated by them? Unless either of them were built in direct relation to those events and in hopes of generating money across the world because of them I do not know what your getting at. You pull something way off base to make a point that has no bearing on the topic really. Kind of like a religious fanatic who brings God and theology into every single conversation no matter what the topic is about. I have only 1 method reall... [More]

This article says nothing about the event! Only the first paragraph indicates ANYTHING happened. The rest of this article is fluff and nonsense! Perhaps this article should have been properly named, "France builds UFO landing Pad!(...and by the way an actual alien craft landed there after a 34 year wait)"

That is actually the worlds first UFO landing pad in St.Paul Alberta Canada. I saw it years ago and remembered it. Here's a wiki link about it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Paul,_Alberta It is listed as an attraction. Poor towns only attraction listed on Wiki. It opened in 1967 I didn't even know Canada had such a thing. So money was invested on a UFO landing pad and purchased leaky nuclear subs later on? Priorities.

This topic always makes me think about the welcome party in the movie Independence Day. "I hope they bring back Elvis!!" - BOOOOOM Seriously, this stunt has tourist trap printed all over it.

I think I would steer clear of landing pads. Does any one remember the Twilight Zone? Yea, it was to late when they translated the "Cook Book" the "Freindly" aliens gave them! That still rings in my ears, "Wait!! Don't go! We translated the book! It's a Cook Book!! Don't go with them!" But sadly it was to late, and well, you know what happened next! I don't want them landing any where near me! Not unless I die of fright, which is probably what would happen! But wait! I just thought of something! I could make a deal with the aliens and sell the tourests to them! I could charge the tourests $50.... [More]
