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. Never did tough did it? In fact the initial design requirements asked for these specs. The engineering indicated differently. Nothing new here. These 'just released' drawings have been around for years. Never built therefore never flown. Highly unstable anyway. See the video of the Avro Canada 'Flying Saucer' (Avro Car-under USAF contract) that never got more than 4 feet off the ground at Malton outside of Toronto. We have to re-hash this same stuff about every 5 or 6 years. Cue the Nazi Flying saucer and the Horton glider. So let's go, Don Ledger Listen to 'Strange Days...
