The main point of contention, surrounding the suppression of Burnelli, is around two conflicting reports; both emitted by the U.S. Army Air Corps. The first is a glowing 1939 report recommending Burnelli Aircraft, the second is a 1941 report which was promptly classified stating that Burnelli aircraft had absolutely no value and would never be looked at again, yet today the most sophisticated and high-performance aircraft are built and projected in accordance with Burnelli principles. Why is the Pentagon refusing to acknowledge the fallacy of the classified 1941 report or retract the technical falsifications in it???
On September 19, 1939, General H. H. Arnold, Chief of the U. S. Army Air Corp, wrote a glowing recommendation on the Burnelli design principles to the Secretary of War wherein he concluded:
"In my opinion it is essential, in the interest of the national defense, that this procurement be authorized."
In September of 1941, the US Army Air Corps contrived a report, immediately classified, and which concluded:
"The Committee recommends that the Air Corps inform both the Central Aircraft Corporation and V. J. Burnelli Airplanes, Inc., and any other concern which may later possibly become interested in the Burnelli `lifting fuselage', that this design is of no interest to the Air Corps and that for this reason no further correspondence, consultations, or reviewing of data embodying this design will ever again be considered by the Air Corps or the Material Division."
Then, to compound the viciousness of this conclusion in the 1941 report, the Department of Defense indiscriminately disseminated the technical falsifications contained in the report to prevent the Burnelli Company from competing in the civil market place. Furthermore, political influence was used in post-war Europe to prevent Burnelli aircraft from being manufactured there.
The Burnelli Company did not have sight of the 1941 report until 1961 because it had been classified! An immediate protest was made to Secretary of Defense McNamara accompanied with demands for a retraction but the Pentagon continued its wide dissemination of the technical falsifications despite the fact the Defense Department and NASA commenced funding Burnelli competitors to utilize Burnelli technology in aircraft such as the F-14, F-15, F-22, the Aurora and the X-33. Northrop and Douglas based their B-2 and the BWB respectively on Mr. Burnelli's 1940's technology. The resort to Burnelli technology by these companies proves conclusively that Mr. Burnelli's design principles have always been correct and that the 1941 report has always been fraudulent.
The blatant dishonesty of the Department of Defense, the FAA, NASA, and affiliated civil organizations for almostsix decadesis beyond description hence all the documentation is provided so you can see for yourself.
