"Who’s" Flying Saucer???

Apparently ours (Well the USAF actually)!!!

You just never know what you’re liable to find digging around in the attic, or in this case at the National Declassification Center…

Recently declassified records from the Aeronautical Systems Division, USAF (RG 342 – Records of United States Air Force Commands, Activities, and Organizations) reveal some surprising, perhaps never-before-seen images:

USAF Project 1794

The above illustration was discovered in the pages of a document titled “Project 1794, Final Development Summary  Report” (d.1956) The caption reads “USAF Project 1794”. However, the Air Force had contracted the work out to a Canadian company, Avro Aircraft Limited in Ontario, to construct the disk-shaped craft. According to the same report, it was designed to be a vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) plane designed to reach a top speed of Mach 4, with a ceiling of over 100,000 feet, and a range of over 1,000 nautical miles.

One wonders if this ‘actually’ started in 1947…  (ducking the conspiracy theorists I ‘know’ will be coming out of the walls)…
