This is something that Youtube algorithm suggested to me so maybe not everyone has seen it. A very pleasant surprise. Real vintage stuff. Jeticopter and flying saucer too

Thanks Terry for this lovely bit of nostalgia.
I did a search for the plan of the Jetex Flying Saucer but only found an illustration of the Keil Kraft version, pity, either would make a fun project with the same wing section I used on the Bill Dean Skyray.

I have done another search for Flying Saucers and this time I found that Roger has written extensively about them in these two links but still no mention of the original Jetex Flying Saucer. Flying Saucers time anyone? Enjoy.

This is, I think, amateur home movie footage that the owner has digitized and uploaded. And this is from Sweden. I seem to recall a Swedish language newsreel with quite a bit of Jetex in it. If I can find it again I'll post a link in here.

Thanks, Terry, this is priceless! If this footage is indeed Swedish, the likely culprit is Sigurd Isacson:



Isacson was keen on helicopters.:)
