If it's triangular ... it's ours. Incredible speeds? We can do that too. See:
Great little chart showing examples of airspeed. Good examples! www.aerospaceweb.org...

Vertical Maneuverability See:
In the US, a number of experimental saucer shaped craft were apparently developed as black projects by Lockheed Corporation for the USAF, and by
Convair for the CIA. The saucer had the advantages of being a Vertical take-off and landing design (so avoiding the need for easily damaged runways),
while the shape was well suited to diffusing radar and so making the craft stealthy. These early designs were apparently powered by turbojets, which
powered a horizontal rotor to provide lift using the Coanda effect.
In an apparent attempt to quell speculation about the military nature of flying saucers, a press conference was held in July 1952, at which Major John
A. Sandford denied any knowledge of the craft, and retired Major Donald E. Keyhoe declared his belief that they were of alien origin. In 1957 Keyhoe
became head of the civilian UFO group NICAP (National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena), which is believed to have also been infiltrated
by several covert members of the CIA."
Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Example See the following from the same Wiki link above:
Quote: "The Sikorsky Cypher is a doughnut-shaped, experimental, prototype unmanned vertical takeoff and landing aerial vehicle. The Sikorsky Cypher
II, (a.k.a. Sikorsky Mariner), followup aircraft has wings extending from the left and right sides of the aircraft"
Furthermore, we have a "something-or-other-else" that I have seen first hand, that I know others reported to Mufon; but, this "thing" IS really
ours! I think it was an experimental from Lockheed or that other one (forgot the company name) up in Dallas. I saw this other thing CLOSE, in
daylight and it was accompanied by an UAV AND a manned vehicle. My father is insisting I make a ufo report on this OLD (nearly 10 years ago) event;
but, I say it's ridiculous to report something I know for SURE was manmade.
And last, you know the Harrier jump jets right? Well, I had seen one hovering over a landing field (70's) and my brother-in-law SWORE it was
I think people just PREFER to be superstitious, to believe fiction and fantasy over reality. As a habitual liar I know says, "Lies are more
interesting than the truth." People would PREFER to believe in UFO's, even when they have proof right in front of them that the triangular craft
So, if it's triangular-shaped, I figure it's ours. If it's saucer-shaped - I put it in the "to be researched" category.
