Russian Space Debris Found in Tobago Cays ?

Any CFers in the Tobago Cays right now? How about checking this out and reporting back!

Rumors have it that parts of the failed Russian Phobos space probe have been found on the beach at Petit Tabac. Investigators are on the way, but have been delayed by the LIAT pilots' strike. The Russkies said they expected it to fall back to earth in late December or January. Maybe it came back early.

p.s. Petit Tabac is the island where Capt Jack Sparrow and the beautiful damsel were marooned in the original "Pirates of the Caribbean".

Assuming that is a part of the Phobos probe, I would not have wanted to be under something that size when it came down.

We were anchored right off that beach last time we were in the Cays.

When you're there and start hearing a rumbling sound, run away because you hear that shortly before the ray guns start shooting. Frakking aliens!

ciao!
Nick.

Did the Russians really paint a flamingo on it?

No wonder the Martians shot it down...

Russians were planning to plant pink flamingos in their yard!

Re: Russian Space Debris Found in Tobago Cays ?

Hate to burst anyone bubble, but theres nothing in those pictures points to a space wreckage.
If it fell from space all you would be left with is maybe few burned up twisted scraps of steel and titanium.
Unless those plastic parts were made from some top secrete russian space plastic we havnt heard of.

Looks more like a small transport plane wreckage then anything else.

My sources confirm that this is part of a secret government antigravity flying machine built in Area 51 with the help of the aliens that survived the crash in Roswell.

The flamingo paint job was camouflage. However, since the debris has been found and made public knowledge they will be deploying the brain ray to erase everyone's memory of the scene. All concerned parties should don their protective head gear immediately.
