That looks like what has been called 'Silverbug' and whatever gubbings there were the US took everything over from AVRO, so the story goes. But I'm
not getting into a debate about the bloody thing.
One thing though, I always thought of the McMinnville, the Trent picture as a genuine picture..not romanticism on my part BTW, just I thought a
genuine picture. I didn't even care much where it came from when I first saw the picture many many years ago, but even then or around similar time
frames the old 'flying flapjacks' were well known and often the subject of cinema newsreel, Gaumont or Movietone, as was the Avrocar. You have to
remember in those days, and in a fairly small time frame space travel, and to the Moon was the thing, and was the one thing many people said couldn't
be done, I think even Sir Bernard Lovell was a bit sceptical at some stage. Things changed very quickly after a time, but all the novel technology on
the screens was a spectacle then.
