Canada's AVROCAR Flying Saucer: The Story of Avro Canada's Secret Projects
From the Publisher:
Ask the United States Air Force about flying saucers and you will be handed a fact sheet stating that, since the closure of Project Blue Book in 1974, the USAF has no interest in, and does not study, the subject. But in the 1950s, the US Government was interested and was in fact building flying saucers, with the help of highly talented aviation design team known as Avro Canada’s Special Projects Group who designed for use by the U.S. military, these flying saucers between 1952 and 1962.
Travel back in time to the paranoid days of the Cold War, when fear of invasion by Communists and aliens from other planets seemed almost equally plausible.
This remarkable book—the result of 30 years of research—shows North American-made flying saucers in various stages of production and in actual test flights.
Astonishing U.S. military illustrations from the period reveal the saucers' intended use in combat.
A leading authority on Canadian aviation, the author is Canada’s resident Avrocar “saucer” expert and leads the battle to “Bring Canada’s Flying Saucer Home” (Two survive in U.S. museums).
