This comes from a de-classified document released because of the FOIA (Freedom of Information Act). The craft was actually designed in Canada and had the ability to "lift off" instead of the usual type of take off. It was obviously quite advanced for 1955.

this link goes to the actual government document concerning the craft:
209.132.68.98...

This "saucer" designed aircraft uses "gas turbine engines," a conventional power source. The report is a preliminary design document that includes sectional drawings, performance characteristics, weight breakdowns, control systems, and problem areas.

This 1955 report does, however, fit into another story relating to U.S. Air Force interest in testing saucer designs. According to a now retired AF Lt. Col., in 1954, while a 2nd Lt., he and a few other 2nd Lt.'s came across a table full of "wind tunnel test model saucers" while in a wind tunnel test building of Area "C," Wright-Patterson AFB. It is illogical to assume that USAF as well as foreign militaries do not have modern versions of this type of craft.

Some have argued that reported UFOs are U.S. government or even Nazi experimental craft. However, those arguments can't account for the extreme maneuverability and accelerations seen in UFO reports. The right angle turns, the over the horizon disappearances in seconds; no conventional power source could provide the performance characteristics described.

So....we were making our own "flying saucers" as early as 1955. I wonder if we got any ideas from that 1947 crash that supposedly never happened?

Dude, the US had flying disk asperations long b4 1947. Has anybody ever looked into the possibility that in themaking of the Northrop flying wing, the Flying Flapjacks, and on the Germans side, the various Horten Hos....that they inadvertantly stumbled onto stealth. Have read somewhere b4 that they noticed with the Northriop wing the small radar signature, and at first they didn't quite understand whyt, but I doubt it would of taken long. Just a thought eh...Like the supposed Aliens weren't flying any shape that some Human hadn't already thought of b4.

Banned....thanks for the addtional info. Excellent stuff!! Seems many of the UFO sightings of the last half century could be from our own planet....
