Conceived in secret, but officially revealed in 1960, the US military’s flying saucer programme produced two prototypes of what was called the Avrocar before the programme was cancelled in 1961. Watch some rather shaky test flight footage of the Avrocar…

In late 2012, the US government publicly disclosed a secret report from 1956 that provides new details of the effort to build America’s saucer. Read all about it in the March 2013 issue of Popular Mechanics – on sale 25 February.
