Why aircraft never evolved from alleged UFO design

  • The converse is also true.

    There is a fairly obvious common form between the aerodynamic shape of a bird and an airplane.

    Which begs the question: If UFOs are not shaped like "airplanes". If "form follows function" then what kind of place has saucer shaped animals?

    Manta Rays and diatoms?

    In a previous discussion you referred to your mother's experience with "jellyfish" looking things. That reminded me that Kenneth Arnold used the same analogy for flying saucers back around 1950.

    "performance characteristics" or "behaviors"? Depends on one's presupposistion.

  • A bird is well adapted to flight - until you need to achieve supersonic speeds. As Habermohl and Miethe discovered in 1930s wind tunnel experiments, there are far better airframe shapes for high speed flight - particularly the one they referred to as a circular wing.
    Take a closer look at 20th Century research along these lines.
