Real Dragon Over Truro, England on Oct. 11, 2013

(Before It's News)

Dragons are real, the video below shows Dragon flying over Truro, England.

The oldest recorded use of the dragon to symbolize Wales is in the Historia Brittonum, written around AD 829, but it is popularly supposed to have been the battle standard of King Arthur and other ancient Celtic leaders. Its association with these leaders along with other evidence from archaeology, literature, and documentary history lead many to suppose that it evolved from an earlier Romano-British national symbol.

During the reigns of the Tudor monarchs, the red dragon was used as a supporter in the English Crown’s coat of arms (one of two supporters, along with the traditional English lion).

 The red dragon is often seen as symbolising all things Welsh, and is used by many public and private institutions. These include the Welsh Government, Visit Wales, and numerous local authorities including Blaenau Gwent, Cardiff, Carmarthenshire, Newport, Rhondda Cynon Taf, Swansea, and sports bodies, including the Sport Wales National Centre, the Football Association of Wales, Cardiff City F.C., Newport Gwent Dragons, and London Welsh RFC.

In the Mabinogion story Lludd and Llefelys, the red dragon fights with an invading White Dragon. His pained shrieks cause women to miscarry, animals to perish and plants to become barren. Lludd, king of Britain, goes to his wise brother Llefelys in France. Llefelys tells him to dig a pit in the centre of Britain, fill it with mead, and cover it with cloth. Lludd does this, and the dragons drink the mead and fall asleep. Lludd imprisons them, still wrapped in their cloth, in Dinas Emrys in Snowdonia (Welsh: Eryri).

The Mametz Wood Memoria

 

The tale is taken up by Nennius in the Historia Brittonum. The dragons remain at Dinas Emrys for centuries until King Vortigern tries to build a castle there. Every night the castle walls and foundations are demolished by unseen forces. Vortigern consults his advisers, who tell him to find a boy with no natural father, and sacrifice him. Vortigern finds such a boy (who is later, in some tellings, to become Merlin) who is supposed to be the wisest wizard ever to live. On hearing that he is to be put to death to end the demolition of the walls, the boy is dismissive of the advice, and tells the king about the two dragons. Vortigern excavates the hill, freeing the dragons. They continue their fight and the red dragon finally defeats the white dragon. The boy tells Vortigern that the white dragon symbolises the Saxons and that the red dragon symbolises the people of Vortigern. If Vortigern is accepted to have lived in the 5th century, then these people are the British whom the Saxons failed to subdue and who became the Welsh.

The same story is repeated in Geoffrey of Monmouth’s History of the Kings of Britain, where the red dragon is also a prophecy of the coming of King Arthur. Note that Arthur’s father was named Uther Pendragon (‘Pendragon’: ‘Pen’ (Head) and ‘Dragon’, being translated by Geoffrey as “dragon’s head”). SOURCE. WIKIPEDIAA

    • Equalizer

      Without the BS anti-gun hot air from Dianne Feinstein and Harry Reid to keep the dragon air borne…it must be a fake… just like obamunism.

  • uknowthetruth

    movement isnt natural..video too short…this video is screaming fake

    • Ezekiel Carsella

      have you seen a dragon fly?

      • srsly1

        Yes, I have. The other night when i visited your mom, I spread her legs and one nearly ate me.

  • Blackie the faithful border collie

    Why has that Cornish man got an American accent?

  • Queen Of Shambhala

    LMAO! SOOOOOO Fake!

    • CrowPie

      :lol:

  • kepano24

    fake fake fake….no fluid movement……….

  • Biblethump

    hmmm, strange how the pigeons din’t notice the dragon.

  • 1 darkstar

    The dragon seemed to flying oddly. The wingspread when flying did not look natural. (Yet, it COULD be real).

  • Jay

    Yet the crows on the power line don’t move or are scared off. lol!
    Looks like a clip from Reign of Fire, Dragon Wars or some other “B” grade Sci-Fi movie.

  • Pix

    Not made in the UK. Look at the arrangement of the power lines, only two cables where there should be three and going into one cable… and a guy with an American accent, is a bit of a give away it’s a stupid American.

    :lol:

  • McElchap

    I recall that some years back, college students in Arizona (ASU?) designed and demonstrated a working model of a remote-controlled aircraft resembling a pterodactyl or “flying dragon” that was very realistic. It flapped wings to gain flight and maneuver through the air, looking exactly the prehistoric beast! :idea:

  • Best Comment Yet

    No, doesn’t look like Bruce Lee at all.

  • Chartricia

    I gotta get a life. Gee freakin’ whiz.

  • bridj

    A clone of relics perhaps?

  • FarmerX

    It’s movie footage and it’s not aerodynamically stable, that thing could fly.

    • FarmerX

      It’s movie footage and it’s not aerodynamically stable, that thing could NOT fly.
      I repeat COULD NOT FLY

  • funseeker

    They live in Inner Earth with the Agarthans and many other races

  • Stēkō

    I was stationed in wales for two years back in 1979-81, West Wales, far West Wales, almost feet wet West Wales. Did I mention I was stationed in Wales?
    Anyway, I don’t recall seeing ” crows “.
    I don’t recall seeing that type of electrical hook ups on poles either.
    I don’t recall a lot, because like the Welsh I was too drunk on Worthingtons Bitters and likely thought I saw Dragons in Cymru too !

    Great, awesome wonderful people in Wales, no better to be found anywhere elsebive traveled too.

    God bless

    I doubt that anyone here is an expert on aerodynamics but that’s irrelevant. Anyone that knows anything about paranormal creatures knows that creatures such as Mothman were repeatedly seen to fly without even needing to flap it’s wings (in other words, the wings were ornamental). I also doubt anyone here is an expert on electrical hook ups in England, or in American/English accents. Also, those look like pigeons, not crows to me, and my guess is that this is a fairly elaborate hoax. It is not that easy to seemlessly splice computer animation into an outside scene. Most multi million dollar movies effects scenes look less realistic than this does. To clarify, i also am not an expert on any of this, but I do know A LOT about real life paranormal creatures.

    • Bus Stop

      Why didn’t the birds get scrared :!:

  • Jerry Redshield

    You can see it pitch and yaw in the string it’s tethered to…LOL

  • AUSSIEwill

    movement does look natural,,,,if they did exsist who would know how it would fly,,,looks about right for its weight,,,video was short i would of followed that thing like a little bitch,,,i deem it fake

  • desertspeaks

    so fake it’s not funny and you are stupid enough to perpetuate the fraud! fail!

  • worldordernews

    LOL

  • Momong Indrajadi

    :mrgreen: ..why it looks so real :shock: succeed :mrgreen:

  • Natty

    looks like a skyrim dragon to me.
    Anyway the myth of the welsh dragon can be traced through the Roman empire who brought stories of dragons with them from the reaches of the empire and their relations with the Chinese.

  • AndreyE

    LOL, CGI or whatever

  • YellowRoseTx51

    About 8 years ago, Japan launched its hologram with ‘godzilla’ coming out of the Water, showing how good the image was. lol, But it was when they made the Billboards on the highway ‘talk’ into peoples heads they had to shut it down. Freaked people out…Caused accidents :lol:

    There has been a lot of evidence, that the aluminium in the ‘chem trail’ saturation was to be used as a ‘blue screen’ for holographic’s.

    On the flip side of the coin, NASA satellites, looking downward at the planet surface, recently caught on camera several Leviathan snakes flying..without wings..just as in the Chinese glyph’s. And, there is a fetal dragon, in the British museum, in a jar. Doesn’t look like this one though. More traditional looking, like a lizard with wings and hands.

    There is also the rumor that the offspring branch of SET, called El(greys) with whom we are at war with, are going to have the Nephilheim offspring branch surface from the Underworld(‘Hollow Earth’ is myth) They also have ‘dragons’ as well as many other predators of Man. Elizabeth is queen of the Moloch, the “Owlman of Cornwall” that eats the children of Man.

    While it is true, that truth is stranger than fiction, I’d have to see something with a better image than this, to believe that this is not a hoax. But thanks for the vid.

  • POC2014

    What Photoshop program you used again?

  • underhispinions

    I needed a good laugh :lol:

  • Thane36425

    Come now, if something like that flew over city these days there’d be loads of amateur, security camera, and news team footage. That’s not even counting how the police would thoroughly crap their pants.

    • Bus Stop

      WHY ARE THE BIRDS NOT SCARED A CAT CAN SCAR A BIRD :mad:

  • metalraven

    I looks a whole lot like that video they shot in Peru, or Ecuador, or ?????, I forget. Just a copy. I was wondering just how that thing would stay aloft with little or no wing movement. Not a physicist, but was wondering what it would take to keep a mass like that aloft. I know there are scientific numbers. But, the bumblebee is not suppose to fly, but nobody told it, and so it flies around just fine. I can do some pretty good stuff with freeware on a laptop. Its called chroma mapping. No need for green/blue screen. That includes video on video. With the processing chips out today there is just about nothing that cannot be accomplished on a simple laptop. And, I can add the jitters to make the whole thing look as if it were done with a hand held cam. I can blur, and do all kinds of things to the pixels in the frames as well. FAKE……………….. NO………………… Made up, perhaps so.

  • Marika

    Ugh. Amateur animation projects are pitiful. Looks like a cheap puppet.

  • LABradford

    Come on now, there are better special effects than that even in amateur video.

  • tatakRJ

    The birds are not even scared. :idea:

  • JuanBeegAhs

    Dragons are real. I was in Truro last year and saw one. It swooped down and killed me so I know they are real! :roll:

  • tom

    i am 100% sure that this is a fake.. im a graphic designer and i watch a lot of sci fi movies and i have seen hoaxes like this many times.

    its fake because..

    1. the wings are small compare to dragons body, it cant fly when the wings is short, it would only glide with small that wings.
    2. too much detailed on the dragon
    3. dragon movement Is so smooth compare to the video frame rate like the movements of typical 3d animation.
    4. dragon shadow is too dark
    5. theres no such dragon existed, way back thousand of years ago people don’t know dinosaurs so they only saw dinosaurs bones so they created an image of a dragon because of the bones they have seen.

    As a person who plays alot of video games and has logged alot of time in Skyrim. I hate to say it, but that is definitely a Skyrim 3D model. That would explain why the lighting and textures seem so convincing. Also, this explains why the dynamics just do not add up, the dynamics are made to make sense in the world of Tamriel, not Great Britain or well, anywhere on Earth. This is just a game model imported into a video of a real-world location. Another give away is simply that the wings are not providing enough lift with each flap to keep a creature of those dimensions aloft, there isn’t enough surface area to keep such a massive creature in the air that long and lift them higher into the sky.
    Based upon the details matching a potential source where false footage could have been made from, and the discrepancies in the physics and biology of the creature, I sadly must declare this one as a fake.

  • AmbrociousXP

    Fake as hell…..either that or it’s a drone made to look like a dragon….for the sake of fear.

  • cfisher31

    I will be the first to say that I would love to find out that dragons are real. They are my favorite fantasy animal by far, but as a few others have already stated, this video screams fake. There is no fluid motion to the way this supposed dragon flies. Not just within the way it flies on screen, but past attention to its limbs….tail, legs, wings…. it’s movement is so rigid. The tail never moves from its shape or position, the legs just stay where they are, and while appearing to move, the wings never change the shape they are curved in while flapping (best description I could think of). The wings were the dead giveaway, as they are shaped curved down and retain that shape despite the wings motion. All in all, I’ve seen better hoax videos of UFOs.

  • earlcity

    So if I go to one of the ends of the Rainbow, i will meet a lepracaun with his top-hat
    and his (later mine) pot off gold?

  • srsly1

    If you believe this garbage, I have some sweet ocean-front property to sell ya in Arizona. Cheap!!
