Wild story here from NBC.com that told of a recently declassified document  about a U.S. Air Force “flying saucer” concept. “Drawings of the saucer-like vehicle come from "Project 1794, Final Development Summary Report" — a 1956 document recently uncovered by the National Archives that describes a vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) aircraft capable of hovering at ground level and reaching supersonic speeds in the sky. The U.S. military had hoped the aircraft could reach a top speed of Mach 4 (2,880 mph) and climb to a height of 100,000 feet (19 miles). But tests at the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio soon showed that the concept fell far short of its supposed promise,” NBC.com stated.
