Any relation between this and the Flying Pancake plane?[edit]

I have noticed that the shape Kenneth Arnold drew in his report looks very much like the Flying Pancake Vought V-173 airplane. Is it possible that Kenneth Arnold simply saw that plane, or the very similar Flying Flapjack Vought XF5U? Does any notable source make this connection? Devil Master (talk) 14:51, 3 June 2011 (UTC)

That's a good point. Of course, the supersonic speeds recorded by Mr. Arnold is inconsistent with the flying record of the Flying Pancake and Flapjack. I'm not sure if that is relevant, though, as many debunk theories don't take that into account. --XndrK (talk · contribs · count) 21:29, 16 June 2013 (UTC)
Not to mention, if it was a Flying Flapjack, it would have been flying backwards. --XndrK (talk · contribs · count) 21:43, 16 June 2013 (UTC)
