Recently Released Classified Documents Reveal Detailed Plans For UFO Prototype

A cutaway sketch of an alternative design proposal for the USAF Project 1794 prototype.


Officially, aliens have never existed but flying saucers very nearly did. The National Archives has recently published never-before-seen schematics and details of a 1950s military venture, called Project 1794, which aimed to build a supersonic flying saucer.

The newly declassified materials show the U.S. Air Force had a contract with a now-defunct Canadian company to build an aircraft unlike anything seen before. Project 1794 got as far as the initial rounds of product development and into prototype design. In a memo dating from 1956 the results from pre-prototype testing are summarized and reveal exactly what the developers had hoped to create.

The saucer was supposed to reach a top speed of “between Mach 3 and Mach 4, a ceiling of over 100,000 ft. and a maximum range with allowances of about 1,000 nautical miles,” according to the document.

If the plans had followed through to completion they would have created a saucer, which could spin through the Earth’s stratosphere at an average top speed of about 2,600 miles per hour. Wow. It was also designed to take off and land vertically (VTOL), using propulsion jets to control and stabilize the aircraft. Admittedly the range of 1,000 nautical miles seems limited in comparison to the other specifications – but if you’d hopped on the disk in New York it could’ve had you in Miami within about 24 minutes.

The document also hints that the product development seemed to be going better than planned; “the present design will provide a much superior performance to that estimated at the start of contract negotiations.”

It begs the question – why was the project dropped? Why aren’t wars being fought with flying saucers? The cost of continuing to prototype was estimated at $3,168,000, which roughly translates to about $26.6 million in today’s money and wouldn’t have been an insane price for such advanced technology. The problem with the other flying saucers developed under the same program (see video) is pretty clear. They didn’t get anywhere near 100,000 feet in altitude, more like five or six if you were lucky – so the military finally pulled the plug in 1960.

    The Secret of the Rational Space Travel, Part I

    This is the first English E-Book of the German author Klaus-Peter Rothkugel – see also his books
    “Das Geheimnis der deutschen Flugscheiben” – The Secret of the German Sauers – and his new e-book
    “Das Geheimnis der Wahren Raumfahrt“, Part I and II.

    Various German „Flugscheiben“, flying saucers, developed during WWII will be detailed described in this book. Also some important foreign versions are presented which were mostly tested in the USA after the war.

    The book starts with some information about certain projects of the “British Interplanetary Society”, B.I.S. which could have been realized long before second world war and the first official space travel missions.

    Contents of Part I:
    Chapter I: The Beginning of Space Travel”
    Chapter II: Unconventional Aircraft in WWII
    Chapter III: Post War Saucer Developments

    Part I is talking about jet-powered disc-aircraft. In the up-coming Part II the electrostatic and electrodynamic driven saucers will be described and there will be an answer, why all these vehicles are still top secret.

    So don´t miss Part I and the soon up-coming Part II.

    The manuscript is written by an aviation enthusiast, with now 35 years of experience in avitaion and aviation history. No disinformation but as close to the truth as possible!
    There are no propaganda stories about “Haunebu” or “Vril” nonsense or the like!

    Over 400 pages with nealry 300 Illustrations in PDF-Format on CD

    .Best information available about this topic in the world! So don`t miss it!
