In the 50s, the U.S. tried to make a UFO

As many can guess, the project was scrapped in 1960.

Sighted by many individuals throughout history, UFOs (Unidentified Flying Objects) have made appearances in the skies clear of our Earth, to popular culture agree that they are shaped like a flying saucer, inspiring countless novels and films science fiction.

But at the time, the U.S. government, specifically the Air Force, he joined forces with a Canadian company called Avro Aircraft Limited, which founded called Project 1974 to build a homemade flying saucer, seeking to revolutionize the transportation industry.

The goal was to get a machine capable of traveling at a speed of Mach 3 or Mach 4, ie between 1020 m/sec and 1361 m/sec, flying at an altitude of 3,000 meters over 1609Km continuous and can take off and land vertically without requiring a long track for that.

Preliminary reports said that “the stabilization and control systems of the ship, as proposed, are possible”, requiring a budget of $ 25 million (current). However, in 1960 everything was scrapped and the machine stopped being investigated, being forgotten.
