Contrary to what is being said on Social Media, the popular flying saucer that usually crowns Skycraft (pictured below) in Winter Park has not been stolen.
According to a sales rep that we spoke with earlier today, the saucer was not abudcted and did not fly away. It is simply being refurbished and gussied up. It needed some new bulbs and a paint job.
It will be replaced in a week or so once the work has been completed.
If you’re intrested in the back story of the saucer, check out this great video by Jon Busdeker of the Orlando Sentinel.
once of the last icons from a bygone era.
