I was searching for information about the first jet planes and airplanes of unconventional forms, I used mainly ATS, Google, You Tube and Wikipedia, and I started to post where in ATS what I was finding in the respective forums, because the information is immense and in different fields, some subjects had already been posted by other ATS members, I tried not to duplicate so I put thread references where I know them or found them through search.
This thread tries to centralize the information I found, and I welcome some more resources, information and videos on the subject. Could you help, please?
I am also trying to understand better the nuclear bombing by USA, and maybe USSR, in the late 50´s (only 1958?) over Antarctica, but the information is difficult to find and check.
The information I collected (a little bit long) spreads
along the following paragraphs (and posts):
1 - Firsts resources and references.
In my search, I noticed a strange resemblance between two structures, one in the Avro aircraft company (Canada) and other in the area of the secret German WWII underground facility Wenceslas mine (Ludwikowice/Poland), related to saucer and maybe antigravity projects, more details and videos in the thread Avro Project Y2 and “The Bell” are they related?. (1) What is your opinion?
The good video “stranger than fiction the real flying saucers”, about man made saucers it is in the post “Canada/NAZI Germany/USAF and USSR saucer projects” belonging to the thread Space Serpents and other Craft Secrets, (1) also with references to other threads here in ATS.
2 - The Coanda Effect.
Today the British company GFS Projects (see the saucer video in their site) is developing a saucer craft based on the Coanda Effect, named after inventor Henri Coanda, who was the first to discover this effect, in the aftermath of a disaster of its jet-propelled Coanda-1910 aircraft. (See Also JLN Labs GFS-UAV project)
Other types of saucers do not use the Coanda effect, like the one produced today by a USSR company EKIP, at least the prototype that flew was a saucer type aircraft.
Do you have any knowledge of other saucer projects based (or not) on the Coanda Effect? Any from Japan?

Operation Paperclip - The Nazi Scientists of America - American Heritage
"Intelligence and government officials faced a delicate moral quandary in 1945—whether it was worth it to give American homes to men who had invented weapons to kill American soldiers, men who in some cases subscribed to beliefs that hundreds of thousands Americans had died to eradicate. In the end they decided it was, if these men could help the United States defeat the Soviets."
