It's Not a UFO, It's an LED Model Plane!

Bay Area man puts hundreds of LED lights on model plane

    Don't blame South Bay residents if they think they've been seeing UFO's lately.

    Technically they have been seeing unidentified flying objects -- really pretty ones.

    It's a bird. It's a plane. No really it's plane. Its creator is our own NBC Bay Area news photographer, Walt Colby.

    He built the radio-controlled plane and designed the custom lighting arrangement, but no one was more surprised when his invention became a YouTube hit.

    Fans last month voted it one of the most science and technology videos.

    Clearly, the plane gives new meaning to the term "light aircraft."
