Swedish UFO Interception by Alfredsson Swedish UFO Interception by Alfredsson
1961, a single unidentified flying object is spotted through out northern Europe, flying at incredible speed.
A pair of SAAB J29F Tunnan scrambles to identify the object but are attacked the very instant they make visual contact. The pilots barely manage to dodge the green slimy goo the UFO fires upon them.
Soon the UFO looses interest in this inferior opponent and nonchalantly speeds away at full speed, not paying these flying machines another thought. No thing made of man can compete with their superior technology, so why bother they thought.
Little did they know, that the J29F, one of the worlds fastest fighters had the capability to intercept and destroy them with the use of their quadruple 20mm cannons.
No UFO's have been spotted over Swedish territory ever since.

Planes and UFO are 3D models, clouds and smoke are painted in Photoshop.
The landscape is a photo.

UFO is a military term for an Unidentified Flying Object , whereas if it were an alien spacecraft it would be identified!

UFO's don't exist, a dot in the sky could be anything, it could be a ball of lightning. If there were aliens visiting this planet, they would have left behind their skeletons, or their technology, or something. Yet we've got nothing, some random farmer in the middle of nowhere would have found SOMETHING by now. Yet no evidence exists. Oh well, back to reality, lets face the issues we know about. Fixing this world by starting with what we know.

First, UFOs does exist. The word means "Unidentified Flying Objects", and that's what millions of people have been observing and documenting over history. Second, there's always an explanation. There's no alternative, because "non-explanations" doesn't exist. These things in the sky are something real and they always have a cause. The idea of some of these being extraterrestrial vehicles powered by extraterrestrial organisms IS one explanation. Whether it's a likely explanation or anything like that is another question.

Why would these "aliens" have "left their skeletons, technology or something else"? What has led you to that conclusion? On a related note, there have been countless of reports of wreckage of and debris from extraterrestrial spacecrafts and bodies of extraterrestrials, but most of these are highly controversial issues, and most are either taken and hidden away by the military or government or somehow lost to history. Some still exist, and some are documented.

However, stories like the one depicted in this artwork are rather common and trustworthy, coming from actual military personnel and reports/documentations. UFOs are part of reality, but thus far a seemingly unsolved mystery.

The problem is pilot testimony is often unreliable. In the air, with no points of reference, determining the distance, size, speed, and direction of an object is difficult.

Definitely got a laugh. Nice work. Even though we already know it's an Nazi Reversed Engineered Ancient Alien Spaceship from the 27.3rd Dimension, where Hitler and his staff still reside and work planning to re-invade Earth once their agents here, the illuminati, get things ready for the 4th Reich.

I love conspiracies. They would make hilarious movies. (Iron Skies, MIB, Paul, anyone?)

Sorry earthling those antique earth year 1961 jets have no chance to even come close to the flying ship.
Can't tell what planet it is from , from this picture . The ship was just playing.and could make those cannons useless great art work though
