Flying SaucerSaucer in the air
Founded in 1930, the concept has generally been replaced since 1952 by the United States Air Force, non-identified flying object or UFO. Earlier reports of early spotting of undisclosed "flying saucers" usually described them as silvery or metal lic, sometimes obscured by navigational lighting or illuminated by a glow, floating or fast in motion, either alone or in narrow formation with other similar boats, and showed high manoeuvrability.
Whereas disc-shaped flying targets have been considered sporadic since the Middle Ages, the first use of the word "flying saucer" for an non-identified flying target was the description of a likely weather forecaster that struck Texas and Oklahoma on June 17, 1930. "Some, who saw the strange lights, described it as a giant comet, a blazing flying saucer, a large luminescent flame, a fireball.
"1 "1] The word "flying saucer" has been used since 1890 to describe a clay target  that is similar to a classical UFO-form. Kenneth Arnold's review on 24 June 1947 led to the widespread use of the word "flying saucer" in US-Journals. Though Arnold never explicitly used the word "flying saucer," he was cited when he said that the form of the object he saw was like a "saucer," "disc," or "cake plate," and a few years later he added that he had also said, "The object was moving like a saucer jumping over the surface of the ocean.
" Until the early 1950s, both the words "flying saucer" and "flying disc" were generally and exchangeably used in the press. Once such siftings were very widespread, so that "flying saucer" was a UFO name in the sixties before it fell out of favour.
More recently, the flying saucer has been largely replaced by other supposed UFO-related cars, such as the UFO related flying warhead. UFO was coined in 1952 to describe the greater variety of forms that can be seen. On the other hand, there are still reports of unidentified saucer-like items, such as the widespread view of Chicago-O'Hare in 2006.
In addition to the usual use of the term, there were also artificially made saucer-like ships. In 1944 Alexander Weygers took out a patent for the first flying disk ship Discopter. Further sketches followed, like the American Vought V-173 / XF5U "Flying Flapjack", the britische GFS Projects flying saucer or the britische "S".
"Saucer Aircraft Utilising Coanda Effect Reactions" flying saucer by Alf Beharie. Collected in Zurich. A further well documentated companion item was Kenneth Arnold's inspection of the specimens with saucers on June 24, 1947, while Arnold flew at Mount Rainier. Said he had seen 9 highly reflective cars, one in the form of a half moon, the other in the form of a disc or saucer, flying in a squadron form, woven like a dragon's tail, turning and blinking in the light and driving at a minimum of 1,200 mph ( 1,900 km/h ).
Besides the saucer or disk form (Arnold also used the words "cake plate" and crescent shaped) he later also said that he described the movement of the ship as "like a saucer when you jump over it over water", which led to the expression "flying saucer" and also "flying disk" (which were equivalent for several years).
Directly after the survey, several hundred observations of mostly saucer-like items were made in the United States and in some other states. Most widespread was the sifting of nine more disc-like targets by a United Airlines flight on July 4, who stepped their aircraft over Idaho, not far from Arnold's first sift.
The Army Air Force Airbase in Roswell, New Mexico, released a July 8 announcement stating that they had salvaged a "flying disk" from a near-by ranch, the so-called Roswell UFO event, which was on the front page until the army released a revocation stating it was a meteorological ballon.
The Army Air Force Directorate of intelligence, supported by the FBI, began a confidential survey on July 9 of the best flying saucer records, involving Arnolds and United Airlines crews. They published an intelligentsia estimation three week later that describes the characteristic features (including the fact that they were often portrayed as disc-shaped and metallic) and came to the conclusion that something was really flying around.
General Nathan Twining initiated a widely used formal governing survey of cups. At the end of 1947, this resulted in the founding of Project Sign (also known as Project Saucer), the Air Force's first UFO open UFO survey. Flying saucer" is a word that has quickly taken root in the English language.
An August 1947 Gallup survey found that 90% had listened to the cryptic flying saucers or flying disks, and a 1950 Gallup survey found that 94% of respondents had listened to the word, which slightly eliminated all other frequently used words in the headlines such as "Cold War," "universal army training," and "bookmakers.
Research shows that such a cloud accounts for less than 1% of flying saucer reporting. But the point is that the concept of spacecraft in the form of flying saucers was engraved into the nation's mind many years before 1947, when the Roswell event took place. The first UFO viewers did not take long to believe that the unidentified floating bodies had the same disc form as the fictitious scientific cars.
Most of the identifiable items (about 84%) were declared as ballons, planes or stellar items. A kind of Fata Morgana can be in charge of some observations of flying saucers by showing things below the star chart and floating in the air, enlarging and warping them. Henri Coanda, the Rumanian creator of a patented laptop, filed the first document for a laptop.
Further efforts have been made to manufacture restricted ly successful crewed cars on the basis of the flying saucer designs. Unsmanned undercups have had more popularity; the Sikorsky Cypher is a saucer-like UAV that uses the disc-shaped envelope to shield the blade. The flying saucer quickly became a stereotype icon for both aliens and sci-fi after 1947, and can be seen in many mid-20th-century sci-fi movies such as The Atomic Submarine, The Day the Earth Stood Still, The Atomic Submarine, Planet 9 from Outer Space, Earth vs. The Flying Saucers, and the TV show The Invaders.
The flying saucer, outdone by other design and concept, was disgraced by pure sci-fi filmmakers, but was still wryly used in humorous films, especially the low-budget B-films, which were often equipped with saucer-shaped extraterrestrial vehicles. However MGM gave its high 1956 output value Prohibited Planets a flying saucer named United Planets Cruiser C-57D, which presents a credible man-made research, quicker than the lightship of the twenty-third cenury.
The saucer featured in the 1994-1998 TV show Babylon 5 was a default marine model used by a breed named Vree. Extraterrestrials in the 1996 Independence Day movie assaulted mankind in huge, city-sized, saucer-shaped spaceships. Above all, the slender, silvery flying saucer is considered a cultural icon of the 1950s; the theme is widespread in googie and Atomic Age decoration.
