Roswell Revisited?

This Week’s Hints to help you along:

  • In a secret hangar, this flying saucer languished due to budget limitations.
  • It was not quite in Roswell, but nonetheless Roswellian in nature and design.
  • It featured three engines but just two counter-rotating propellers underneath.
  • A larger version would have featured seven engines, but without funding, was never built.

So do you know what this aircraft is?

    It was the AVRO Y-2 (Weapons System 606A), I believe

  2. Roy Benstead says:

    That appears to be Avro Canada’s Project “Y” later to become the VZ 9 Avrocar.
    Too bad they did not try four fans instead. If so, it could have been a success 60 years ago.
