On July 7, 1947, the same day of a reported UFO crash at Roswell, New Mexico, a strange craft was spotted flying low and traveling fast over a neighborhood in east Phoenix, Arizona.
The incident may have gone completely unreported, if it were not for the fact that a young astronomer, by the name of William A. Rhodes, happened to be in his backyard at the time, within reach of his small brownie camera.
As it so happened Rhodes managed to snap a photograph of the unidentified craft as it circled around his neighborhood before it disappeared off in the distance – at a incredibly high rate of speed.
The photograph was developed by Rhodes in his darkroom and submitted to the editor of a local newspaper who published it the following day on the front page of the Arizona Republic, under the by line “Mysterious whatisit flies over valley.”
In talking with people about the craft’s rather unusual design features, including those within the areospace and defense establishment, the general consensus is the craft shares many similiarities to modern day stealth aircraft designs.
Without revealing that the design was actually based on a UFO report over 65 years ago, some of the experts indicated that the design was in some ways more advanced than our current stealth aircraft designs. The reason for that was it had more rounded curves – making it in their opinion a more areodynamic design than the current models. Many speculated that what they were looking at was some type of advanced stealth design concept, developed by the Russians maybe – until I showed them the newspaper report and photograph that appeared in the Arizona Republic on July 7, 1947.
Needless to say that really blew their freaking minds.
