Most pictures of UFOs are blurry, so today's pictures of the old Flying Saucers fit right in! The difference is that these were taken by somebody trying to control their saucer and take a clear photo. It didn't work so well.
Apparently boys of a certain age particularly enjoyed this ride. First: you're on a cool flying saucer! Second, you get to crash into your friends, or even complete strangers. Boys love mayhem. The kid on the right is gunning for someone.
The photographer was moving, the subject was moving, I guess we can't be surprised at results like this.
Those vehicles really weren't built for two - even an adult and smallish child. I've heard it was hard enough for one person to control where to go; with two it must have been impossible. Still... I wish I could experience it for myself! The newer "Flying Tires" attraction at DCA is so big and slow that I don't think it would be the same.
