Thanks for the details Stan, don't think anybody else would've had them. So we can estimate that, to even approximately emulate the observed performance of some UFO's, a human-built craft would almost certainly have to use massive electro-magnetic power. Problem is - how do you carry the huge power-supply? And for any organic occupants or passengers the problem still seems insurmountable - if all observed UFO manoeuvres are to be attempted. Of course both puzzles might be cured by the discovery of some physics presently unknown to us (like solving the inertia mystery) - which might also entail `refueling' from thunderstorms or power-grids.
