Declassified UFO design from 1956

Do these images look familiar? They should. It’s a UFO. But not from outer space. These are real plans from real scientists back in the 50s. The Aeronautical Systems Division (USAF) recently released these images for a project worked on in 1956. The flying craft was known as Project 1794 and was designed to reach a top speed of Mach 4, take of and land vertically, and cover a range of over 1,000 nautical miles. This was meant to be the future of flight. I still hope it’s being worked on somewhere.
