Saucer's Secret: Antigravity by Maj. Donald E.

Keyhoe This is an article that appeared in a magazine called `Flying Saucers' that was written in 1967 by Maj. Donald E. Keyhoe. SAUCERS' SECRET : ANTIGRAVITY Editor's Note: Major Keyhoe has been writing about Unidentified Flying Objects ( UFO's) for over 15 years. [written in 1967.Vangard] From the outset he has insisted that flying saucers are real and interplanetary, and many authorities have come to agree with him. Now he claims that control over gravity itself is the only explanation for the a stounding maneuvers which saucers are said to make. Some physicists dismiss this theory as fundamentally erroneous. But, as you will read, there are others who find Major Keyhoe's latest chapter in "The Great Fly ing Saucer Story" important and plausible. What goes up (and around ) does not necessarily have to come down. Major Keyhoe maintains `Not known fields of force' allow saucers to behave peculiarly: To hov er motionlessly, turn on a dime, and accelerate at fantastic speeds. And only a crash `G' program on our part can counteract it. By Maj. Donald E. Keyhoe One night last February, over the North Pacific, a Flying Tiger Airlines crew ha d a startling aerial encounter. What they saw is a clue to a fantastic technical mystery. In its solution lies a prize so great that six government agencies are searching for it right now. The answer may not be far off. What they are search ing for is the secret of gravity control. About midnight on February 15, the Flying Tiger plane, carrying a military group from the U.S. to Japan, was four hours out of Anchorage. Suddenly the cockpit r adar picked up three fast- moving objects. The plane captain and his crew looked out at the side and saw three huge oval-shaped ships, glowing red in the night. An Air Force captain who was a passenger on the plane was called forward to conf irm the sighting. His signed report is in the files of the National Investigatio ns Committee on Aerial Phenomena. According to the captain's report, the unknown machines slowed down to the airli ner's speed and flew in close formation. Five miles away, by radar range, they l eveled off to pace the plane. Page 1 The Air Force captain computed their length as much more than 700 feet. It was p lain that the giant Unidentified Flying Objects had an unknown type of propulsio n. No jets, no exhausts were visible. For 30 minutes, still in formation, they c ontinued to pace the plane. Then, swiftly accelerating to 1,200 knots, they clim bed out of sight in seconds. This startlingly swift acceleration is a maneuver that could not be duplicated b y any ship now made on Earth. What makes it possible for UFO's? According to man y scientists and engineers, there is only one possible answer. The answer is ANT IGRAVITY : artificial gravity fields and control of gravity power.

With such advanced ships. we will move in space with constant acceleration or deceleration. Venus in 36 hours. G affects our lives and adds billions to the cost of work.

Such terrific speeds could put bombers back into the picture in place of missile s. or less. we could build spaceships matching the UFOs' high sp eeds and maneuvers. a pparently for close observation of the Earth. With s uch advanced machines. we could make swift flights to the moon and the planets. Aircraft and rocket builders have to provide heavy engines. accelerating at incredible speed. Accelerating half way to our goal and decelerating the rest of the way at one G or 32.

One group.2 feet per s econd. a huge G-trans port carrying a fully armed division or even an army could be on the scene in 40 minutes. Gravity control could reduce or end many of these problems. In one such case (an official AF Intelligence report). there will be some fantastic results. gravit y control will enable spaceships to reach even greater speeds than these. . Instead of ou r present wasteful rockets. the picture of possible military operati ons becomes hair-raising. we could explore the nearest star systems a century or mo re ahead of our present timetable. Alexander de Seversky stated that "with abundant energy available. resumed its speed within seconds. Here's wha t a G-liner trip would be like. huge weights of fuel. Others believe there may be a sudd en breakthrough. Attacks by G-bombers from base near major targets would take less than five m inutes. If a "brush-fire" war broke out halfway around the world.
