In 1960, near Hesperia / Apple Valley, California, at the location of the old Osbrink plant on Bear Valley Road, Otis T. Carr opened a unique kind of Research & Development and manufacturing facility – one for designing and building what we know as "flying saucers". Carr preferred another name for his Tesla-inspired invention: Circular Foil Craft. According to Ralph Ring, that craft carried three men ten miles across the California desert at the speed of thought. Of the three ‘test pilots’ - Ralph Ring - is the only one still alive to describe the experience.

James Gilliland, of the ECETI Estate in Trout Lake, WA, lived in Apple Valley at the time Otis T. Carr was operating his Enterprise. As a child, James knew about the flying saucer plant, had seen the billboard, and used to ask his mother to tour Carr's facilities; but, she had always refused. During this interview, James describes the stir caused in the town when Carr had successfully tested one of his prototype circular foil craft.
