Above: Model of the NORTHROP NS-97

Dick Stasinos designed this saucer, in 1950. He was an engineering graduate of the Northrop Aeronautical Institute. Stasinos’s disc had a revolving outer shell and held eight turbo-jet ports. The center of the disc stayed stationary, along with the cockpit for the pilot. Two main jets provided the push and the eight jets provided the spin.

The disc is NOT in storage at the Ripley’s "Believe It or Not" museum in New York City. The source wrote so, but Edward Meyer (VP Exhibits & Archives Ripley Entertainment Inc) wrote me he can't find anything in their archives to suggest that Ripley was ever connected to this flying saucer/inventor. The original Stasinos photos would be archived at the Project SIGN Research Center (is that true?).
