FastWalker used the term 'vacuum' which was unfortunate. Thinking 'outside the box' here - from what I've (barely) been able to glean and 'understand' regarding this potential technology re: ET craft and their propulsion methods .... is best described as something that defies what we consider as 'common' knowledge.
Most intelligent people understand the concept of an object that moves through air, when it becomes 'supersonic', will leave what is known as a 'sonic boom' in its wake.
However, in order to understand the ET craft, one must break away from common perceptions. It isn't always necessary to travel from 'Point A to Point B' in a linear fashion.
Take a sheet of paper, and mark 'Point A' and then mark 'Point B' somewhere differently .... doesn't matter how far away it is. NOW, fold the paper so that both points touch each other. Get it? I don't understand it .... have grappled with it for years. Physicists are studying the possiblity of not just the three dimensions that we can conceive, but as many as eleven!
This concept came about because of the odd nature of gravity .... one of the 'four forces' but gravity is strangely 'weak', compared to the other three. The answer as to WHY gravity is comparitively weak is that it 'possibly' is only being experienced by us as it propagates through all of the other dimensions that we cannot perceive, but mathematics are trying to be used in order to understand.
Circling back to the point: An object that moves through the atmosphere WILL make noise, including, as expected, if it exceeds Mach .... a 'sonic boom'.

This is about observed, seemingly physically impossible, maneuvers that are reported....AND why the 'craft' leave no disturbance in the atmosphere that will result in a 'sonic boom'.

A star for you!
That's bringing it "down to Earth"!
See people? Present day aerospace engineering. That's all it takes.
UFO Observed By Pilots Making 90 Degree Turn ~ September 10, 1951
Lt. Rogers followed the object in a diving turn to the left descending to an altitude of about 16,000 fet with the object about 8,000 feet below and to the right of the aircraft. Thereafter he tried to keep a course paralleling, but above, that of the object.
As soon as Major Ballard completed his radio report he was notified of the strange object. Both watched it make a 90 degree turn to the left and kept it under observation together while it covered approximately 20 miles before it disappeared out to sea.
On the same date a radar station at Ft. Monmouth reported two targets that were unidentified, traveling over 700 mph, and giving returns that could not be explained as being equipment malfunction, anomalous propagation, or anything but an actual target as described in the attached report.
