US Air Force Declassifies 1950s UFO Plans

Everyone is familiar with the Roswell UFO incident from 1947, in which a UFO reportedly crashed down in New Mexico. While opinions on what really happened vary wildly, we now know one thing for sure: in 1956, the US Air Force was working on their own flying saucer.

The recently declassified documents tell of Project 1794, a collaboration between the US Air Force and Avro Canada to build a flying saucer that’s capable of flying 2,300 – 3,000 mph, up to 100,000 feet high, and with a range of 1,150 miles.

There are supposedly two boxes worth of documents pertaining to Project 1794, but only four of those documents have been digitized for the viewing public, so information is still fairly limited. One thing we can assume though is that if flying saucers were really all they’re cracked up to be, we’d probably see a lot more flying around today as opposed to the traditional jets, planes, and helicopters that make up the United States Air Force.
