In the winter of 1979 word started to spread in Pembroke Dock that a flying saucer was being built in an old giant aircraft hangar in the town. Those involved were sworn to secrecy. The BBC has a great article up on the strange and unusual birth of the most famous space ship of all time - Star Wars' Millennium Falcon. 30 to 40 men worked long and hard in a locked and guarded hanger that was used in World War II. When security was finally breached, The Western Telegraph ran a picture and story under the headline "Security Blown On Flying Saucer Secret".
