When talking about flying saucers , people usually immediately think of “alien vehicles”. However, in reality, many flying saucers are created by humans themselves, but they are considered a special secret, so they are sometimes considered “UFOs”. One of the types of human-built flying saucers is the VZ-9 Avrocar, researched and developed by Avro Canada, part of a top-secret military project of the US military in Canada.
The design of the VZ-9 Avrocar bears the Secret seal.
The first flight of the VZ-9 Avrocar flying saucer took place on November 12, 1959. The flight was a success and demonstrated to the Pentagon that this alien flying saucer could fully fly.
Unlike previous aircraft, the VZ-9 Avrocar has no wings or propellers, it has three jet engines with three bellows that allow it to float in the air.
The VZ-9 Avrocar flying saucer is designed with two pilots. The diameter of this strange flying vehicle is about 5.5 meters and it has an empty weight of only 1.3 tons. Equipped with a total of 3 Continental J69-T-9 jet engines, this flying saucer is capable of taking off with a maximum weight of up to 2.5 tons.
According to calculations, the maximum speed that the American flying saucer can reach will be about 483 km/h, a maximum range of 1,600 km/h and a flight ceiling of up to 3,000 meters.
The VZ-9 Avrocar also has its own combat doctrine written by its engineers, in which this flying saucer will use its ability to fly high and fast to approach the target and attack anyone, and then unexpectedly escape from the battlefield with a flight path that made it impossible for the enemy to pursue him.
However, life was not as expected and the VZ-9 Avrocar flying saucer project was canceled because none of its test models produced the expected results.
Specifically, the maximum speed reached by the VZ-9 Avrocar is only 56 km/h (theoretically 483 km/h); The maximum range is only 127 km (theoretical 1600 km) and the ceiling is only 0.9 meters (theoretical 3000 meters).
In 1961, the US Air Force’s VZ-9 Avrocar flying saucer design project was officially canceled after the country’s military and government spent up to $10 million to create two prototypes that “only “They could fly a little.”
All secrets about the VZ-9 Avrocar were revealed by the United States in 2002, after the death of all members of this project. According to documents released by the United States, the first VZ-9 Avrocar was only able to fly for a few seconds before crashing, while the second VZ-9 flew for a total of 72 hours.
Although all the secrets about the VZ-9 Avrocar have been revealed, many American scientists believe that it is quite possible that the country’s government and military have other top-secret military flying saucers in their hands, many times more modern than the VZ-9.
