You know a very wise member here has brought it to my attention that i may have mispoken in my above post.
Triangles are not just man made and conceived. Very bright and talented women such as ning li (wherever she ran off to) have also contributed greatly to the development of the technology behind triangles. Its a human thing. Nothing to do with aliens.
The ASALT uses the so-called « improved Coanda effect » which enables it to take off and land over extremely short distances. The upper surface is typical of Northrop's other jetwing designs. Speed is still unknown to this day; however the ASALT is said to be able to fly at relatively low speeds. Dr. Henri Coanda, born in Romania, discovered the « Coanda effect » in 1910 and devoted 20 years of research to it. The basic principle enables every plane to fly thanks to the curved shape of its airfoil. The « improved Coanda effect » is about pneumo-dynamics, in other words the control of airflow. SENIOR CITIZEN's wing is said to contain pipes which allow air to run through the leading edge all the way to the trailing edge. Apparently, compressors blow air through tiny holes positioned all along the wing. The B-2A bomber and YF-23A fighter are said to feature the selfsame device, which photographers has never been allowed to take pictures of, but the ASALT takes the concept further, as the top surface of the aircraft features thousands of such holes, enabling it to take off vertically, hover and even fly backwards. Flight testing is said to have been completed by 1988.
SENIOR CITIZEN is said to be in operational use since 1989, and almost always in conjunction with F-117A attack planes, flying behind them only minutes away. In August 1990, the type was seen in England, on the Alconbury RAF base. Twelve separate witnesses testify to its taking part in the Gulf War, one of them being parachuted from a SENIOR CITIZEN on the way to Baghdad. Renowned aviation journalist (and ufologist) Steve Douglass allegedly filmed the type on an exercise flight in Roswell. An RAF source also confirmed its presence on Machrihanish RAF base in Scotland. SENIOR CITIZEN aircraft are now said to be based at Camp Mackall in North Carolina. Their numbers are unknown. Many UFO buffs and secret plane enthusiasts have tried to associate the ASALT with the wave of black triangles that were seen over Belgium in the late 1980s. However, what is currently known of the type does not allow for the extremely high speed manoeuver capabilities that were observed by Belgian Air Force pilots.
Most likely, it is simply the often found misprint of the C4ISR acronym, which stands for "commandment, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance". The real designation of the ASALT could very well be something like 'AC-30A' or, even more in line with usual DoD practice, 'ACV-24A' (see insert on the left for a development on likely and unlikely designations). Mention of the SENIOR CITIZEN program in the House & Senate reports for the "National Defense Authorization Act" (under Defense Program Element 0401316F) ceased as of 1994.
We propose a vehicle which employs no moving parts and assures near instanteous response time with 360 deg maneuverability. Goal: Fundamental development in the plasma based flow actuation using atmospheric medium: (a) to improve at least an order of magnitude in thrust generation; (b) to improve at least an order of magnitude in power/weight ratio.
Ning Li is an American scientist known for her controversial claims about anti-gravity devices. She worked as a physicist at the Center for Space Plasma and Aeronomic Research, University of Alabama in Huntsville, in the 1990s. In 1999, she left the university to form a company, AC Gravity, LLC, to continue anti-gravity research.
