Actually, so did LoFlyte, who pointed out that they did not have
a prototype flying at the time, and even if they had, it bore no
resemblance to what was reported.

The following letter from the website



First, I've read the Sunday Times article and the NASA press
release. With the Internet, it's so easy to informate yourself! I
learn that the LoFly is drived by a neural computer network and
its project is realised by the Accurate Automation Corporation in
Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA. I learn, by the Langley Research
Center (NASA) that the LoFlyte was, not so long ago, a 100 inches
model tested in their wind-tunnel. After that, I've written to
Accurate Automation to ask what they think about the paper in the
Sunday Times.

The answer came few days later :
October 25, 1996

Mr. Wathelet,
Thank you for the interest in Accurate Automation Corporation's
LoFlyte program.

As you aware, The Sunday Times of London reported that "A
prototype model (of LoFLYTE) was unveiled last week and has led
to speculation that a secret full-size version may already have
been built and be responsible for countless UFO sightings." I
have since learned from you and other sources on the Internet
that this story was subsequently aired on belgian television as
an explanation for several UFO sightings over Belgium since

LoFLYTE has never been outside of the United Staes of America.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
