Img.134 (P15) The location of propulsors in a UFO type K3. It documents that propulsors of Magnocraft and UFOs are located identically.
(Upper) A drawing of the Magnocraft type K3 seen from underneath. It shows the location of Magnocraft's propulsors. It illustrates how in appropriate conditions (dusk, damp air) a K3 type Magnocraft would look like when viewed from below. It is drawn as if the twin-chamber capsules of all its propulsors operate with the same phase shift (i.e.in the throbbing mode). The vehicle's propulsors can easily be identified because of the glowing patches of ionized air at their outlets. When the light is subdued these glowing patches should be visible for an outside observer. If a Magnocraft flies in the Southern Hemisphere, the side propulsors (marked U, V, W, X) should emit a reddish-yellow light because their North (N) magnetic poles are oriented downwards. But the main propulsor (marked M) should emit a blue-green light because its South (S) magnetic pole points downwards. Note that these colours are reversed (i.e. a reddish-yellow replaces a blue-green and vice verse) when the Magnocraft flies in the inverted position or changes hemispheres. Also, when viewed from overhead, the outlets of the same propulsors have colours which are the reverse of those seen from below.
(Lower) A UFO type K3 photographed from beneath while hovering over Butterworth, Malaysia, on 3 January, 1979. The above photograph was published in the January 4 1979 edition of the "National Echo", Penang, Malaysia, and subsequently reproduced in the February 1980 issue of the "Mufon UFO Journal", page 8. Unfortunately the original print of this photo was unobtainable to the author, thus its newspaper copy can only be reproduced here. It shows the glowing areas appearing at the outlets from the vehicle's propulsors. Thus, the photograph allows us to determine the location of these propulsors in the shell. The mutual orientation of the propulsors (the main one is placed in the centre of the UFO and is surrounded by eight side propulsors), also their number and positioning in relation to the edges of the shell, correspond exactly to the details of the K3 type of Magnocraft shown in part (upper) of this Figure (compare this Figure and Table F1 and Img. (F28) /?/. Note that a similar photograph, but of a UFO type K5 oriented more sideways, was taken by Norman Neilson of Greta Valley Road, Motunau Beach, North Canterbury, New Zealand on 27 October 1979 (its copy is published in Img.135 (P16).
