Declassified At Last: Air Force's Supersonic Flying Saucer
Schematics

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.
