Vimanas are flying machines which are often mentioned in the sacred texts of ancient India. The American researcher Richard Thompson makes a fundamental distinction between two kinds of vimanas, which correspond to two different technological approaches, two different epochs too.
“The Vimanas fall into two categories: (1) some gears made by man, flying with wings as birds, and (2) non-profiled structures that fly in a mysterious manner and are generally not made by human beings. The machines in category (1) are described mainly in medieval Sanskrit texts that speak of architecture, automata, war machines and other mechanical devices. They are made of wood, and fly thanks to wings like our modern aircrafts.
Although these ancient vehicles are also called vimanas, most vimanas does not resemble planes at all. Those in category (2) date back to ancient times. Mentioned in ancient Sanskrit literature they have much in common with UFOs, and the pilot who flew them had the same powers as the pilots of UFOs. The flying machine of Salva, a former Indian king, is an interesting example of Vimana. He had acquired it by Maya Davana, coming from a planetary system called Taltal.” (source)Richard L.

The Mahabharata gives us the following of this story through the mouth of its hero Krishna: “The cruel Salva arrived on the flying chariot Saubha that could go everywhere, up which he killed many young Vrishni and devastated fiercely all city parks.” And while Krishna was leaping into the sky in pursuit of Salva: “His Saubha hung in the sky with a good head start … He throw rockets, missiles, sabers, swords, battle axes, spears with three blades, flamethrowers, continuously … The sky seemed to have hundred suns, a hundred moons and one hundred myriads of stars.
There was no more day, no more night, and compass did not work anymore. The aircraft of Salva was very mysterious, said Krishna. It was so extraordinary that sometimes it seemed to multiply in all parts of the sky, and other times it was nowhere.” A kind of MHD, an interplan?
The aircraft was sometimes visible and sometimes invisible, and the warriors of the Yadu dynasty were taken aback at the performance of this unit. Sometimes they saw the plane on the ground, sometimes in the sky, sometimes placed on top of a hill and sometimes floating on the water. The wonderful plane was flying in the sky like fireworks – it could not stand still for any moment.” (source)Mahabharata, Bhaktivedanta Those who have seen UFOs describe them the same way. What an amazing consistency!
“The Vimanas were powered by a light yellow fuel, as well as a heart powered by a mixture containing mercury. The Vedas, ancient Indian poems considered the most ancient Indian texts, describe the Vimanas as having various shapes and sizes, and theirdesigns varying according to their utilities. The Indian Emperor Ashoka was so convinced of the authenticity of these writings that he devoted much of his reign to protect his people from their harmful effects.
On this purpose, he created the Secret Society of the Nine Unknown Men, nine great Indian scientists with the task of cataloging the sciences mentioned in old texts, and to conceal from the public. He trembled at the thought that the advanced sciences described in ancient texts bring the devastation of his empire, a fate similar to the one that killed former Rama Empire.” (source)
To conceal these ancient sciences to the public, it is feared that the Nine Unknown have destroyed many texts considered too dangerous.
Maybe they have done well? Since at every age, people do love playing with fire.
Formerly, until the 7th century BC, in Babel (Babylon), there were also airplanes: “The privilege of using a flying machine is great. The knowledge of flight is among the most ancient of our inheritances. A gift from “what is higher”. From whom? Atlantean astronauts? Gods of Sumer? Scholars of Tiahuanaco? The manuscript does not say. It only adds: “We got it from them in order to save many lives.” (Source) Would the Tower of Babel be a control tower? Edgar Cayce saw that the Atlanteans had air traffic controllers, thus control towers. Why not also in Babel?
