Old thread, no April 1 date. Hm.
Nikola Tesla's descriptions of the flying disc he dreamed of building made it sound like it was just a hop, skip, and a jumper switch away, but we
all know he ran out of money, got kicked out of Colorado Springs when one of his experiments knocked out the local power plant, met with various other
major financial setbacks while concentrating his efforts on creating a wealth of inventions to benefit mankind, and died just a few months before the
Supreme Court finally overturned Marconi's patent for the radio in favor of Tesla's patent granted two years before Marconi's. And he's the one
who gave us probably the most important technical advance of the 20th century: AC power distribution.
Tesla also listened to voices on one of his radios that he thought were coming from another planet. And sure, the Nazi's were trying to develop
Tesla's idea of electrogravitic propulsion but ran into a snag: the Allied invasion.
The "foo fighters" could have smashed Allied bombers and fighters or shut them down in flight. But they didn't. Debunkers like to think they just
were balloons launched by the French Underground.
The Avrocar looked like a flying saucer but used three jet engines to power a fan. It was nothing more than a hovercraft, not by design but because
the best it could achieve was ground effect, and its design was not based on Tesla's work.
The NASA tether UFO was very well debunked in the UFO Hunters segment on NASA, where an identical effect was duplicated in the lab.

The Nuremberg UFO event of 1561 could easily have been sundogs.
Most UFO sightings in the 19th century were in Europe, until the North American wave of the 1890s. One exception was the Omaha mass sighting (around
The notion that UFOs are U.S. built begs that question of flying triangles a mile in length. The Stephenville sightings might have been easy to ignore
until a MUFON radar expert requested and received FAA radar data for a 100 x 100 mile grid up to over 41,000 feet for the period of that event:

The following statement is a bit of disinformation:
The above statement is true.
Welcome to the whacky world of ufology.
