World Air Force Fighter Vanishes! – A Gerry Anderson A21 News Report

by A21 Reporter Andy Clems

The World Air Force is maintaining a state of high alert after the sudden disappearance of the new prototype Hyperbolt fighter aircraft on Wednesday.

The Hyperbolt, a revolutionary new design, was set to be the ultimate answer to the Eastern Alliance’s Battle Saber air superiority fighter, and it was hoped a successful test of the Hyperbolt’s prowess would do much to restore the balance of power across the globe.

The aircraft was last tracked on a pre-programmed course during a training exercise when it vanished from the W.A.F. radar screens around midday on Wednesday. Communication with the pilot was lost at the same moment.

The officer, Major Hodden, one of the W.A.F’s most highly skilled test pilots, has a first class record and is considered absolutely reliable. While pilot error is a potential explanation for the Hyberbolt’s disappearance, it is not considered a likely cause at this time.

Amid a flurry of speculation regarding the incident, W.A.F. representative Colonel List appealed for calm, saying “There is no indication that the Hyperbolt was downed by enemy action and any speculation of such a scenario is premature.”

The search effort continues, stay tuned for further developments as they arise.
