UFO Landing Strip

Tuesday, 25th April 2006 by

Hoping that it might just put their small town on the map, the people of Houten have built the world's first specialist UFO landing strip. Honestly, I'm not making this up!

The tower at the centre of the western roundabout will change colour when the traffic intensity on the roads is low, signalling to alien craft that now is a good time to land (presumably one or two cars getting squished by a spacecraft is a worthwhile sacrifice).

Blue lights will then illuminate the 300m stretch of road to the eastern roundabout, where the landing pad is clearly marked with a big "U" (for UFO of course).

More information on this crazy 'art' on the English language website.
