Project outline

One of the things that has proven hardest for man to do, is design a plane that can take off from ground level, and attain orbital altitude, all with a single engine / avionics package. I have of late been researching anti-gravity. The specs are somewhat exotic, thousands of rpms, large quantities of mercury fluid and or plasma, a 7m diameter, and a demanding power rail spec. This project was borne of a desire to derive something that could be built by a Zefram Cochrane type figure. As a strong secondary objective, I also set out to deliver the best lift per Watt.

To this end, certain specifications quickly emerged. The burden of running a true 3x1 anti-gravity system, complete with rpm and power rail challenges, was eliminated, if the craft was capable of flying via conventional lift and ailerons. In addition, with spin points having to be 7 metres in diameter for optimal results, a 3x1 system will always be somewhat large. A single spin point enormously reduces the size, cost, and complexity. The issue then became, how did one get a single 7 metre wide rotating object into a conventional airframe? The answer of course is only by an impossibly large airframe. This size requirement can only be overcome by adopting an exotic airframe shape with greater internal space relative to diameter. In terms of airframe shapes disc craft can exhibit a certain lift, but it was hard to see how such an object could be steered. So was excluded.

In practise there were only 2 contenders. The flying wing shape fitted much of the criteria, offering ample internal space, as well as being able to fly via conventional lift. However, flying wings are somewhat complex to build, failing my simplicity criteria. This narrowed matters down to one and only one possible airframe. A little known one used by NASA for the X-33 project. A triangle frame lifting body. The shape is simple. A couple of oddities occur. The wings must cant at 45% to offset the massive lift generated by the body. Large fins are also required. But the basic frame is simple and robust. This is the only way to have sufficient internal space for the 7 metre wide weight reduction rings, without the size of the craft becoming too large. Hence, via this logic, the triangle plane emerged, as the only practical airframe housing for an electrogravitic anti-gravity lift system.

Researching the matter further, the X-33 project was cancelled after a lot of work validating the airframe concept. The stated liquid fuel tank problems were in fact resolved in 2004 by Northrop Grumman and NASA - proving the cancellation reason was not valid. Rumours on the net state the NASA project existed purely to underwrite the airframe development costs of the X-33A (A is for anti-gravity) - a military spec vehicle.

SM Lifter

The SM Lifter is the anti-gravity spec of the plane. Developed by Dr. W.O. Schumann of the Technical University in Munich in the early 1920s. It is one of the world's most significant suppressed technologies - developed directly from antediluvian occult texts. The wave nature of gravity sets the diameter 6.5-7 metres. When up to speed, it generates substantial vertical lift via a field effect.


The machine (SM Lifter) itself was in disc form with three inner disc plates inside its plate-like hull and a cylindrical power unit running through the center of all three plates. The central disc plate measured 8 meters in diameter; above it in parallel was a disc plate of 6.5 meters diameter and below an equally parallel disc of 7 meters diameter. Through the center of all three disc plates ran a 2.4 meter high cylindrical power unit that fit into a running 1.8 meter hole that culminated at the bottom of the disc body at a conical point to which was attached an enormous weighted pendulum to stabilize the equipment once the unit was operating. Once activated, the cylindrical power unit, which consisted of an electric starter motor and high power generator, started the upper and lower disc plates equipped with electromagnets spinning in opposite directions to create strong rotating electromagnetic fields that were increasingly field-intensified (increasing voltage).

In simple terms, two high voltage discs counter rotate, the smaller scale of the upper disc creates an asymmetry in the combined electromagnetic field of the device, such that a higher amount of aether is displaced by the spin of the larger lower disc. Per Archimedes principal, the lower disc is buoyed upwards in the aether fluid medium by this difference in displacement. The optimal size of about 7 metres is set by the wave nature of gravity. The SM Lifter is a device fixed in scale, and must be used in arrays. Base specs in the range of > 2,500 rpm and > 1 million volts.

The SM Lifter will sit in the bottom of the craft, directly under the main cargo hold. The motor will be accessible via removable decking for easy replacement / servicing. The SSTO version will have 2 double decked Lifters per the Vril mothership OS:Cigar plane.

Gravity technology is based upon the equation I derived and first published:

Gravity = rpm (thousands) x voltage x current

Guidelines for a lab bench SM Lifter:

  • The high voltage rings can be made from flat capacitors.
  • The capacitor ring does not have to be continuous - reducing cost.
  • Two electric motors will be required to spin the discs counter rotating
  • Minimum speeds probably about 2,000 rpm
  • Minimum scale is probably about 2 metres diameter.
  • Working off 6.5/7 = .93, 2m x .93 = 1.86 m.
  • So the upper disc is 1.86 m, the lower 2 m.

Electric jet engine

The final part of my orbital plane spec is a propulsion source. Having done away with a complex 3x1 system, and found a simple airframe to encase a 7 metre wide spin disc pair for weight reduction, a thrust device capable of operating from ground level to orbital was the final challenge. What makes this difficult is that at ground level there is a thick atmosphere, and high altitude has thin atmosphere. Being able to operate in both environments is very challenging. Most engines perform in either or - not both. To solve this problem, I drew upon some of my other research:

This was simplified to a home science project via the following:

What I uncovered from my historical research was that the 40Kv barrier could be broken via a pulsed power supply, reducing the on time to below that needed for arc over to occur. As the voltage was ramped past 150Kv, researchers in the 1960s exploring this effect found a powerful field effect manifested, that increased the thrust beyond what could be explained via simple ionic interactions. While at high altitude the ionic effect falls off, the field effect ensures there is still a net thrust, even into a pure vacuum state. Electric thrusters therefore give full performance at ground level where it is needed most, but also work at high altitude. This is the High-Low performance I needed to complete my thrust spec.


One large ionic thrust cell is used because bigger is better with pulsed thrust, because you can have longer duties and higher voltages, because the cell ionisation path takes longer to establish across larger cells. SM Lifters are fixed to a 7m diameter - they should be used in arrays to scale to larger craft.

Blended concept

  • All electric craft.
  • No external moving parts.
  • Airframe weight reduction / lift with single central SM Lifter
  • 1x large central Electric Jet Engine ionic cell for forward thrust - see OS:Beer glass thruster
  • The nose of the craft can be pointed via the use of bucket sized Beer glass thrusters in the nose in a vacuum.

Airframe Prior art


The earliest example of a triangle lifting body plane I can find is the 1961 Pescara plane from the Italian coast. Because the design is so exotic to conventional eyes, the true layout never seems to have been properly understood. It has a cockpit in the front third of the craft, but then tapers flat, two angled wings, rear corners that extend beyond the end of the airframe, and a large central fin. Its purely an executive personal transport craft for 2-6 people. It would more or less float through the air, and need very little power to sustain flight. It would have short take off and landing capability, and easily be able to land on remote stretches of public road, not even needing a formal airport facility. It is unmistakably a product of the Antartic Reich R&D network.


The X-33 airframe was a NASA project from the 1990s. It also incorporates two large central stabilzation fins, canted side fins / wings, and extension to the rear corners of the craft. Later airframes incorporated the fins into the wings, freeing the main body space for additional payload capacity. The X-33 project finally enabled me to understand the Pescara craft, as the keys to triangle plane aerodynamics are as follows:

  • Surfaces extending to the rear corners of the craft terminating behind the main body
  • 1-2 large vertical stabilizer fins
  • Exotic 45 degree angled wings

The later model Venturestar airframe is the optimal layout for an atmospheric designed Triangle plane. The central space on the body is available for placement of the electric jet engine. The stabilizer fins are integrated onto the wing tips, extending the distance between then, thereby improving flight stability.

And finally I found this recovery pic. For serveral reasons I think it is a photoshop job. For example, the 3x1 tech is restricted deep black, and is not deployed for conventional USAF programes. However, it does show what a USAF long range SM Lifter based drone would look like. For this reason it is still interesting. There is enough detail to show 15 capacitors are used on each spin layer of the SM Lifter.


Design wins

  • Plane will have a heavy payload capability without excessive airframe costs
  • The airframe is geared for heavy lift - NOT turn capability
  • Plane designed for subsonic mid altitude cruising
  • It will be short take off and landing capable on public highways
  • Ramp access to plane from rear for easy loading / unloading
  • Plane is easily scalable to larger sizes via additional SM levitators in array
  • The only moving part - the SM Lifter - will be fully enclosed - low maintenance

Conceived as an airborne pickup truck - finally making local bulk air transport practical. This is a workhorse transport plane, that will find its niche in a world that is no longer able to properly maintain all its highways, in challenging atmospheric electromagnetic conditions.


  • Can fly as a conventional plane if SM Lifter anti-gravity device fails (higher stall speed)
  • Can glide if Electrical Jet Engine and SM Lifter suffer power failure
  • If one wing came off, with power, the SM Lifter would still provide a managed descent possibility
  • Intended to have redundant controls like the A-10. My personal preference is a fly by light fibre optics primary (resistance to interference), with a hydraulic secondary.

Power rail

  • I favour 2 gas turbines on either side of the body about 70% of the way back - this will balance the airframe
  • Walk-in access through the main cargo compartment will make servicing / replacement straightforward
  • The craft will be able to cruise unloaded at altitude on one turbine
  • Again, safety is achieved through redundant complementary parts

Theory background

This research plane concept grew out of writing the following articles:

The plane is an elegant blended concept craft based upon propulsion via electric field effects, with a view to minimizing power consumption and maximizing heavy lift capability, while assuring high levels of safety and reliability in operation.


If I have seen further than others, it was because their mind control techniques failed on a trained historian. Tim Harwood 2013




Rival designs

A review of rival projects shows the Triangle plane concept to be vastly cheaper, simpler, and safer. The lack of any need for expensive, volatile, and heavy fuels, is a massive design win. The airframe is balanced, because there is no heavy engine weight.

In the News

  • Featured / OS: Anti-Gravity / Propulsion >
    Triangle Plane and Philadelphia Experiment Open Source Project - Tim Harwood has proposed a project to build a remote control inertia reduced plane for under $500 with X-33 lifting body triangle to be the airframe template and with all electric thrust. As a follow-up, he proposes a Philadelphia Experiment to reduce the optical visibility of a model boat and to establish a portal to hyperspace. (PESWiki; January 23, 2011)


  • Tim Harwood has proposed, and now outlined this project in detail, in addition to providing the base article / research.

This is a concept project proposal - should the American government want to take me up on this they can do so. While I can build a model plane version with a beer glass thruster, due to the 7 metre scale of an SM Lifter, this project could only be fully executed with a multi million dollar budget. Mini SM Lifters just don't work. This plane is cheaper, simpler, more robust, and more practical, than the money-is-no-object deep black fleet. This is the unique selling point of the project. The SSTO market has a new *$NOCASH$* contender!
