  • The avro car is old news and no where near like flying the way UFOs sighted and like what I saw as a teenager 😳 crazy manoeuvrabilitys zipping across the sky like nowt I've ever seen before or after what I saw in the 1990s!! I think mankind are arrogant too even contemplate where the only intelligent life in the vast expanse of the solar system and universe! Its just mathematically wrong that life has happened only once!!

  • The Havro Car is an old Fan propelled craft, which I saw for the first time, when I visited NASA Space Center in Cape Canaveral, around the days of the Apollo XVI Mission in 1972..., this Havro car is not a Flying Saucer, it is some sort of early drone type craft... no antigravity or anything like it

  • If it was supposed to fly at high altitude and at match 3 then why did they want it to be able to takeoff vertically? And if they wanted vertical takeoff then why the speed and altitude requirements? It's like they wanted to have a single kind of plane that would serve the roles of interceptor, bomber, reconnaissance and fishing boat.

  • The only thing they messed up on is making the outer body in the form of layers and layers of honeycomb structure. The intense air pressure flowing through the honeycomb will generate the passing of air from all 360° degrees of whatever object allowing it to move randomly throughout the air but in no particular direction. It’s up to who is using it to guide it just like a metallic beetle. It’s whole entire body is covered in the same honeycomb structure so even though it’s wings wouldn’t be able to lift the majority of the bigger Beatles, the flapping of the wings generating wind through its body makes it define gravity. This has been known for thousands of years but has been protected because of the damage it can do it’s made public but now that same honeycomb structure on the body of a beetle mixed with today’s science and technology and its availability would cause chaos because you could pretty much implicated at home in the basement and then used for whatever Sinister idea someone or some people might have.

  • Title is fine, is just how you achieve flight, is why I came here to see whats going on. Just you're average ordinary science person. Tesla (someone who very few of you now know after a google search made a device like this using electrical power, according to documents released by the us military. His used some form of dual propulsion system which still remains a mystery. I have been working on this for years not and at best i have gotten to the point where the metals used and the geometry of the design is key in operational success. the rest is still being tested by my team, such as the energy matrix, and the reactor chamber are still experimental.

  • God loves you so much that He sent His Holy Son Jesus from heaven to earth, to be born of a virgin, to grow up and die on a cross for our sins, and to be put into a tomb 3 days and rise from the dead the third day, and He (Jesus) went back up to heaven. We must receive Sinless Jesus sincerely to be God's child(John 1:12).After we get saved by grace through faith in Christ, if we truly love the Lord Jesus Christ, then we will obey Jesus(John 14:15). Mark 1:15 "And saying, the time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: Repent ye, and believe the gospel." Jesus said in John 14:15 "If you love Me, keep My commandments. "There's a real hell. It says in Revelation 21:8 "But for the cowardly, and unbelieving, and abominable, and murderers, and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone..." Please sincerely receive Holy Jesus and put your true faith and trust in Him today and repent!

  • 5:26 which is kind of the whole flaw in the design concept in the first place. This project was borne out of the UFO scare, and kind of the whole idea of "flying saucers" was that it was the spin of anything in the air that provided stability and some kind of "thrust" by use of the right hand rule. And this thing uses none of that ... and instead uses a series of small jet engines to provide thrust for lift and directional control. Flying saucers as alien space craft are BS to begin with, but then to try and mimic them without even using that basic concept, to me, just strikes me as being a kind of oblivious thinking that comes out of American engineering society at the time. I saw this time and again of taking a hyped idea, and then not using the basic principle behind the idea to make that idea work. I've never understood this about this nation. Never. A frisbee, throw hat or thrown hubcap maintains its stability and flight from its spin. And this guy made a non-spinning disk with a bunch of jets nested inside the fuselage? Whatever man. What a waste of time, money, effort, and a demonstration of complete stupidity. And that, good people, is this moron's legacy.

  • Notice how it only gets off the ground at 5 to 6' and not 15.000' or higher and with the jet engines would be so noisy and really never very fast , hmmmm , nothing like all the UFOs that are well documented as very very high off the ground and flying at great speeds , yup.

  • A booster rotor engine should have been placed under the ufo aircraft for its lift, likewise two booster engine should have been installed too in both either lower sides so it can easily move left or right faster...also a solar engineering panels should have been installed to collect solar kinetic energy in powering it and saving power to be used during nightfall... Thus the ufo aircraft should have been made bigger in the process. You see cost should never be comprimized in prototype experimentation to make it work. A bullet proof aluminum body should have been used too since its lighter than steel and can't be magnetized. Speed is the goal of achievement process if it will be use for military purpose. Thank you. God be with you. 🙏😊

  • Here is the TRUTH dear aliens intusiasts folks... Alexander Weygers (Wikipedia it up) is the creator of Discopter and sold the blueprint and liscense to US Government in 1944. That is why US use this thing to spy anything . The only reason they looking for witnesses on public is because they want to know who else use the blueprint to create the same. The technology getting improve overtime because it has been a very long time since 1944. For sure technology improved so much including now that we have stealth technology and Off-Radar disappearance technology. Combining all this you would get a supersonic fast look like object and additionally off-radar. If you are the leader of government and u created a spy craft, you wouldn't want to introduce this to anyone would u? You would want this technology to improve without going to commercial.. technology that we all know of and sure of are always limited to commercial ones, for example u know that Huawei phones (etc) can shoot a high quality camera because its on the market. Unless its not, then u wouldnt know the technology itself . Additionally, US Presidents (including Obama and Trump and everyone else who denies it) have been strict on hiding this because they had to and yes it impacts National Security... Brcause the saucer itself is in fact their own Spy Craft. The Discopter is also Scientifically and Physically Possible. Look at the design published everywhere on google. Understanding the design posted on Google (u can look it up) its behaviour should be hovering stationary and not moving like airplane, unless it decides to vanish, it would go straight up or sideways very fast by using massive propeller located at the bottom to go shooting up or sideways and use off radar technology and stealth technology. And of course any Military Personnel is not eligible to know this secret because anyone can reveal the Spy Craft itself. Ex Israeli Space Guy is probably paid to say about Galactic Federation is to create distractions and possibly public support on Space Force created by Trump. So not that the government dont wanna tell you about aliens, but because there is no such thing to tell.
