Yep the photo has been lurking around ATS for some time now but i am not the best to direct you to the appropriate threads.
Anyway i am not sure if the threads were specific to this photo only.
From what i recall these airplane designs were greatly influenced by the UFO culture. However the design were not very efficient aerodynamically while
manoeuvring in implementations such as these,
i.e. modifying traditional airplane designs... into UFO airplanes...
Yeah, I've seen that and similar photos. During World War II the US Airforce conducted some experiments in disc-shaped craft. Overall they failed
horribly because they were extremely unstable in flight. Unlike now, they didn't have the computers that could compensate for the craft's stability
issues. For example, the stealth fighter and bomber both are horribly unstable in flight, but have onboard computers that make constant minute
adjustments to keep it stable.
