E.T. going home or United States Air Force test craft?
(INTELLIHUB) — As I am fond of saying in many of my articles, the U.S. government is several decades in advance of the rest of the population technologically speaking. And when we do find out about a new technology via a “leak” or press-release it has usually been around for twenty or thirty years.
When people spot unknown craft or unusually-patterned lights traversing the night sky, they often resort to the now-time-honored “UFO” theory. And in reality, if it is not identifiable it is by default considered an Unidentified Flying Object, whether it is being flown by a lost alien or a USAF test pilot.
In the humble opinion of the author, I believe the following to be true. I am of the impression that while we may have had off-world visitors, that a healthy portion of the “alien” craft we see are actually part of classified DoD/USAF projects.
Did you know that disc-shaped aircraft, i.e. “circular wing” aircraft, have been in use for more than half a century or longer?
Here is a 2014 article from the Tampa Tribune which discusses unmanned prototype, discoid-shaped, VTOL (Vertical Take Off and Landing) capable craft which will “soon” be tested. When it comes to aircraft and other vehicles which can be used for military purposes, when it hits the news, it has often been long-deployed. You don’t think that the military would share the really juicy stuff with us, the Russians or the Chinese, did you?
And if you saw the “Geobat FS-7” (pictured below) flying overhead on your way home from a long day at work, what would you think?
According to the Tampa Tribune article “[A firm] located at Brooksville-Tampa Bay Regional Airport, [named] Corporate Jet Solutions, recently inked a joint-venture agreement with Aerobat Aviation, a California company with plans, someday soon, to launch a manned flying saucer-like aircraft known as Geobat FS-7.”
“Someday soon.” Remember that phrase.
This technology is not new. The US government was working on a similar craft in the 1950’s, which was alleged to be based on German designs from the 1930’s and 1940’s. All of a sudden “Someday soon” doesn’t seem to be the most accurate of descriptors.
An interesting piece on ExtremeTech states that the USAF declassified one of their circular wing aircraft projects over the past decade. The exact date was not provided.
“The aircraft, which had the code name Project 1794, was developed by the USAF and Avro Canada in the 1950s. One declassified memo, which seems to be the conclusion of initial research and prototyping, says that Project 1794 is a flying saucer capable of “between Mach 3 and Mach 4,” (2,300-3,000 mph) a service ceiling of over 100,000 feet (30,500m), and a range of around 1,000 nautical miles (1,150mi, 1850km).”
By the way, here is another hint. When the military describes range, speed, altitude, and flight time, the figures are often greatly diminished. Disinformation is a beautiful thing.
Now for those of you interested in building your own “flying saucer,” you can head over to the National Archives for a peek at images and blueprints of technology which was being worked on more than seventy years ago.
In addition to being interesting subject material to pore over, this article should serve as a lesson to all of us.
We have a publicly-owned company announcing in 2014 that they have already launched an “unmanned discoid prototype” while maintaining that it is a relatively novel design held aloft with under-developed technology.
I would guess that at least one of the people working within the companies involved with the project worked with (or still does) either the DoD, USAF, Boeing, Lockheed, or a combination of several of the aforementioned organizations and companies.
This is not new technology, it has been around since at least the late 1930’s (nearly a century) and occasional news releases are a way to acclimate the public to the existence of “flying saucers” manned by pilots versus E.T.
