This real-life 'flying saucer' actually works

Engineers in Romania have invented a genuine disc-shaped flying machine that can move in any direction.
Take a quick glance at footage of the All-Directional Flying Object (or ADIFO) in action and you'd be forgiven for thinking that this is some sort of elaborate fake or a clip from a sci-fi movie.

As it happens however, this remarkable machine is the real deal - an actual fully functioning flying saucer that can move in any direction, just like the objects described by countless UFO witnesses.

This one though didn't come from space - it was designed by inventor Razan Sabie and his partner Iosif Taposu - a former senior scientist at Romania's National Institute for Aerospatiale Research.

"The aerodynamics behind this aircraft [are] the result of more than two decades of work," said Sabie.

Like a quadcopter, ADIFO uses four ducted fans to handle "take-off, landing, and slow speed maneuvers" while two jet engines provide it with some serious horizontal thrust.

A pair of lateral thrust nozzles also enable it to turn quickly and push itself sideways.

Interestingly, Sabie maintains that the craft's disc shape makes it 'natural born' for supersonic flight.

You can check out ADIFO in action for yourself in the video below.
