Real UFOs: Flying Saucers History

How German Flying Saucers eventually became U.S. military aircraft UFOs.

The idea of the flying saucer can be traced back to
first being conceived by Nazi Germany.  During World
War II, Hitler employed scientists to work full-time in
developing weaponry of all sorts.  The goal was to win
the war through superior weapons technology.

These German war machines included a flying saucer
program, as these real UFOs were envisioned flying at
super-sonic speeds.  To develop and build them, three
of Germany's top scientists created three different
credible designs for the flying saucer, with each of them
developing three working prototypes.  Amazingly, three
different research facilities were reported to have three
different flying saucer models, capable of flying.

Near the end of World War II, Germany had turned out
incredible rocket, jet-engine, and flying saucer
technologies.  They ran out of time, before their
super-weapons could be full developed and
implemented to win the war for Hitler.

But the flying saucer technology was not lost, for both
Russia and the United States were able to capture
some of the German scientists responsible for the Nazi
killing machines.  This eventually led to the Cold War,
as fears of what the other country might be scheming
and building took hold.

The U.S. captured three of the flying saucer scientists,
and interestingly, the first flying saucer sightings
occurred soon after the war, in 1947.  Pilot Kenneth
reported seeing nine flying discs speeding above Mt. Rainier in Washington State.  Being an experienced pilot,
he was able to calculate their air speed based upon the landscape.  He estimated them flying at 1200 mph, and
was the first to describe the new aircraft as "saucers."  Of course, the U.S. Military was quick to deny having any
disc-shaped aircraft.  [

Soon after this sighting of flying saucers, the news
media also picked up the story of aliens and UFO
wreckage being discovered in Roswell, New Mexico,
the same year.  Again, the U.S. Military denied having
discovered such a thing, but explained the find was
really just a weather balloon.  But, these two events
began the flying saucer craze that swept across the
globe.  Soon, many people would come forward to
claim they, too, had seen a flying saucer.  Some
people would begin faking UFO photographs by
throwing a trash can lid, or similarly shaped object, into
the air while snapping pictures.  Hollywood quickly
jumped on-board and created numerous alien and
flying saucer movies to feed the growing public
interest.  But, did the United States have flying saucer
technology?  Yes, they did.
By the 1950s, a British aeronautical engineer who had developed the swept-wing, tail-less fighter, became
intrigued with the Nazi flying saucers.  He eventually interviewed one of the German scientists, Dr. Miethe, who
showed Frost photos of the German flying saucers, and told him they worked ten years on their development,
hacing succeeded in building a flyable prototype.  Frost was soon convinced he could build a flying saucer, and
soon began working on it at the Avro aircraft factory in Canada, 1952.  By 1953, his first flying saucer model
dubbed "Project Y" was initially tested, but its tail-wing design was scrapped.
So, Frost and his team worked on a fully-circular flying
saucer design called Y-2.  Around this time, Frost had
caught the eye of the United States government who
quickly invested 10 million dollars into the Y-2 Project.  
The design of the Y-2 prototype was scaled down for
test purposes and safety reasons, and named the
Avrocar.  By 1957, the Avrocar vehicles were rolled out
of the test facility and tested.  The prototypes had
various problems, but did fly, though they lacked
stability and power.  They were proof that vertical
take-off was indeed possible, and that gyroscopic
properties would be needed for stability.  By 1962, the
funding of the entire project with Frost was dropped by
the United States, due to the U.S. Government wanting
to develop a swept-tail design.  This would eventually
lead to the development of the F1-17 Stealth Fighter.
Did the United States continue the development of the flying saucer?  Some believe so, and two witnesses who
saw the craft would surface years later.  Jack Pickett claims he saw four flying saucers of different sizes at McDill
Air Force Base, 40 years ago.  Having security clearance at the time, he was also shown photographs of the
U.S. UFOs in flight, and told they could fly at 15,500 mph.  The saucers he saw had a tail and aircraft fuselage
built onto the flying-disc shape.  The other witness to these aircraft was now-deceased, Warren Botts, an ex-Air
Force pilot who wandered into a U.S. aircraft hangar and saw the identical flying saucer as Pickett described.
It is likely that many of the UFO
sightings reported are experimental
U.S. aircraft, and not unlikely that
the United States possesses flying
saucer aircraft, capable of
high-speeds, non-detection by
radar and sonar, and achieving
space flight.  Can all UFO sightings
be attributed as being classified
U.S. flying disc technology?
