Boeing, the world's largest aircraft manufacturer says it is working on anti-gravity propulsion, which could revolutionize conventional aviation.
If the science underpinning the program can be made into reality, it will be the biggest thing to hit the aviation industry since the Wright Brothers.
"GRASP," or Gravity Research for Advanced Space Propulsion, was only recently reported in Jane's Defence Weekly, but the U.S. military may have had the technology for years.
The National Institute for Discovery Science (NIDS), based in Nevada, say that mysterious U.S. military craft using this kind of technology have been skirting the skies since the 1980s.
Defense Contractor Leaks Details of a U.S. antigravitic
space fighter-bomber, the Advanced TAW-50 aircraft
A defense contractor leaked details of a U.S. antigravitic space
fighter-bomber, the Advanced TAW-50. Developed during the
early 1990s, the capabilities of this war-bird are
jaw-dropping. And the technology shows that the Defense
Department did not fail to utilize what it learned combing
through the wreckage of various UFO crashes.
The TAW-50 has speed capabilities well in excess of Mach 50,
a number the contractor calls "a very conservative
estimate." Its actual speed "is classified." Mach 1 is 1,225
kilometers per hour, (approximately 748 mph). That means
that the TAW-50 is capable of moving way faster than 38,000
mph. In comparison, the velocity required to escape Earth's
gravity is 25,000 mph. And yes, the TAW-50 does go into
The TAW-50 has a SCRAM (supersonic ramjet) propulsion system
for passing through the outer atmosphere.
America has used its enormous wealth to become the global
super-power. The TAW-50 is but one example of its exotic,
unnecessarily proliferative arsenal. The world awaits the
day when America finds its soul, and pays more attention to
matters of spirit, mind and metaphysical reality, and
withdraws from its addiction to war toys.

yeah, that dr boylan stuff is high fiction, to say the least. your first link however, the jane's piece by nick cook....now THAT has some teeth. i remember when that first surfaced a few years ago, i got real excited. i thought "FINALLY!!! lets take the wraps off of it!!!!"
then...nothing. Absolutely nothing.

Can I meekly point out that every aircraft is anti-gravity - in that it defies gravity - otherwise, it would just sit on the ground like a very wide car
