WTF, is this what the Government want us to believe, that they are behind all flying saucers?

Lets just say its about to get real interesting in the heavens.

It never flew. This is as close as they got.

this old news,saw doc with video footage and your lucky if these things got 50ft off the ground

i believe that was the air forces attempt at replicating what they have seen, captured or have pictures of with 50's and 60's technology.

why else would you spend millions constructing one of the most inefficient designs for flight using the propulsion methods of the time.

it looks like they couldn't figure out how to replicate a ufo's propulsion system and wanted to see if they could use the design with their engines.

maybe by now, they've figured out how to engineer a ufo's engine and have actual space crafts.

thats why closing down nasa, scraping the space shuttle and not wasting billions on "primitive" rockets makes sense if they have superior alternatives.

Doesn't really make sense to me why anyone would invest the time, money and effort into developing an aircraft that is saucer shaped and powered by turbine engines. Unless they got the idea, and were trying to imitate something else they saw and didn't understand.

Because they were trying to build an aircraft with vertical takeoff capabilities. The circular shape would use the Coanda effect to create lift. It would have worked if it was flyable. It wasn't. It was terribly unstable. Nowadays it wouldn't have gotten beyond computer models.

what sort of nutcrack plans are this ?
this seems to be some homebrew stuff, cause noone with fundamental knowledge about jet engines would build a design where the airflow from such an engine would be forced into a 180° turn within the vehicle.
Those 'intake cascades' would suffocate the engine, if they are build this way.
And if it won't completly suffocate it it would at least cause a severe loss of power.

nope...this is just crap, sorry

Correct,they did succeed however with a different type of aircraft.
The british "Harrier jump jet"...

Get a real job, 007.

Debunking cooks on subjects that already have threads doesn't count.

Sorry OP, no disrespect but I have literally lost count at the amount of times this story has been posted on ATS in the recent weeks.

Des just finished pointing this out on another new thread within the last 6 hours - hence the head bash gif.

Another saucer plane was the Avro Canada VZ-9 Avrocar. Why would anyone build anything like this that couldn't fly more than a few feet? One reason might be to show the public that what they were seeing was an experimental aircraft and completely explainable.

Maybe they were still operating under the mistaken notion that the flying saucers were vehicles manufactured by the Russians? So they were doing there best to replicate the observed craft using the technology of the time - which is still basically the technology of today.

I think the very fact that they were building the Avrocar means that they did not have "crashed alien flying saucers" (or "crashed Nazi flying saucers"
) to back engineer.

But the idea that the projects might be elaborate hoaxes to fool the public has merit. The public is very gullible, starting with the writers and editors of Mechanics Illustrated. Just read through these forums and it is obvious that lots of people believe that flying saucers are vehicles built in a secret program for the US Air Force based on super-advanced technology taken from the Nazi's.

They fervently believe this even though sixty years on, there is still no evidence that the US or other militaries have any aviation technology that doesn't rely on the same basic aeronautic principles used to power the first turbine powered jets back in World War 2.

As some have noted, that they were able to build jets with vertical takeoff, using downward vented air from turbine engines with the Harrier. The latest F-35 has a version that will use this technology. But that seems to be it. Still no evidence the US has ever obtained or developed real "flying saucer" technology.
