From the public TV broadcast "Indians and Aliens" again the topic is the paranormal with the military dimension.
Those American Indians members of the Cree nation of Canada having on repeated occasions having seen what they described as UFO. Flying saucers if you wish. Indeed, flying saucers as having the shape of and resembling a "flying saucer".
"The number of encounters with unidentified flying objects (UFOs) in the vast, remote Cree territory of northern Quebec are growing. Indians and Aliens investigates these phenomena and explores credible witness accounts with scientists and other experts in an attempts to open up possible explanations. But there are eye-witness reports that defy rational thought."
It often being suggested that these Cree nation observers were seeing experimental military aircraft during test flights.
And specifically so during the time of the Cold War the Canadian Avrocar. A FLYING SAUCER!
"The Avro Canada VZ-9 Avrocar was a VTOL aircraft developed by Avro Aircraft Ltd. (Canada) as part of a secret U.S. military project carried out in the early years of the Cold War. The Avrocar intended to exploit the Coandă effect to provide lift and thrust from a single 'turborotor' blowing exhaust out the rim of the disk-shaped aircraft to provide anticipated VTOL-like performance. In the air, it would have resembled a flying saucer."
An Avrocar prototype. Persons surrounding the aircraft give you a sense of scale.
Avrocar two prototypes having made and FLOWN! ONLY however able to hover about two feet [66 centimeters] off the ground and UNSTABLE! The Avrocar project not a success and no further development warranted.
Avrocar during a test flight. That is about as high as the aircraft could rise. Two feet [66 centimeters]! And was unstable. More of a hovercraft than a combat warplane.
Those Cree also describing their UFO encounters as with MASSIVE flying objects NOT MAKING A SOUND!! Avrocar was NOT what the Cree were seeing.
