Russia reports that the U.S. Naval Air Systems Command has signed an agreement with EKIP Aviation in Russia to co-produce a flying saucer-shaped aircraft that was developed in 1992. They say the new planes will be ready in a few years, but from recent Middle Eastern UFO sightings, we suspect the unmanned version is already being used as a spy plane.
Why a saucer-shaped plane? It doesn’t require a long runway and can land almost anywhere. The shape gets rid of vibration, which is a big problem with conventional aircraft design.
