This Opportunity Comes to You in 2018 From 1947

This Opportunity Comes to You in 2018 From 1947

Some of you may recognize the name Chalmers “Slick” Goodlin.

More of you might recognize the name Chuck Yeager.

Both were involved in one of the most monumental moments in U.S. Air Force history.

However, only one of them got the fame. The other became lost to obscurity.

Both of these gentlemen were accomplished World War II Air Force pilots. And following the war, Slick Goodlin was offered the chance of a lifetime:

To be the first man to break the sound barrier.

In 1947, that was a feat no one ever thought we’d ever accomplish.

And Slick, who was already quite well-known, was going to do it.

Now, breaking the sound barrier would require a pilot to fly his plane at faster than 767 mph.

On April 10, 1947, Slick climbed into the Bell X-1 aircraft for the first time. He would fly it 26 times to push the sound barrier.

But he never broke it.

That honor goes to Chuck Yeager, the pilot who took over after Slick demanded hazard pay to the tune of $150,000 for his flights – compensation he never received.

On October 14, 1947, Yeager broke the sound barrier at an altitude of 45,000 feet, and soared his way into the history books.

Not for the last time, either.

Yeager would go on to break other speed and altitude records during his distinguished career.

His accomplishment heralded a new era of opportunity.

Breaking the sound barrier meant that it was possible to travel at speeds previously thought impossible.

And not just planes and pilots, either…

We’ve Broken the Speed of Sound 20 Times Over

The speed of sound is 767 mph.

And we’ve come a long way since 1947.

Because not only can we travel faster than the speed of sound…

But we can travel more than 20 times faster than the speed of sound.

That comes out to be 15,300 mph, a speed even Chuck Yeager could never have dreamed of going.

We aren’t flying planes that fast though.

We’re flying missiles.

Like I said, we’re a long way from 1947.

These missiles are powered by engines that allow them to travel at speeds so fast it makes them virtually invisible.

Flying at speeds as high as Mach 20, even the most heavily defended enemy nuclear facilities are nothing more than sitting ducks.

Which is why defense experts are calling these “indestructible.”

And in today’s geopolitical climate, a weapon that can go that fast could be invaluable.

Not only that, but with new technology comes new profit opportunities…

A Long Way from 1947 – Or Not

My colleague Michael Robinson has been deeply involved in military technology for several decades now.

His career as a board member and senior strategist for a Silicon Valley venture capital firm has allowed him to take part in some of the most exciting defense technology breakthroughs of the last three decades.

The most recent of which has just arrived.

Hypersonic weapons.

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has called these America’s “number one priority,” and that it will “change the character of war forever.”

These are the words of a Secretary of Defense that is dead serious about spending every available resource – and every dollar it takes – to get this remarkable technology embedded into our military – top to bottom.

And much of this funding is being funneled into a single source.

A tiny company in Alabama that develops the engines that make hypersonic weapons work.

This company’s brilliance in developing advanced, state-of-the-art missile engines and propulsion systems means they are the go-to supplier of engines for billion-dollar contracts being spun to virtually every big defense contractor in America.

Which means that it’s on the cusp of a huge revenue explosion.

An explosion you can take advantage of.

Michael has all the information you need to get in on this once-in-a-lifetime profit opportunity, and all you have to do to learn more is click here.

With the U.S. experiencing tensions with China, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Venezuela, and a host of other countries, it could be a great comfort to have an indestructible weapon at our fingertips.

In some ways then, perhaps we’re closer to 1947 than we thought.
