CiTrus90 has some excellent drawing skills. The last picture was a nice touch.

I ran across this patent created by William R. McDonnell:

Patent: Oblique Blended Wing Body Aircraft


I thought the name sounded strangely familiar - a McDonnell living in the St. Louis area, who designs advanced aircraft. So I looked into into it further and found the following:

Popular Mechanics September 1980 (page 104)

Until 1979, that is, when a 27-year-old aeronautical engineer named William R. McDonnell…McDonnell, son of McDonnell Douglas Corp. president Sanford N. McDonnell…

McDonnell Douglas Aircraft Since 1920, Volume 2 (page 407)

Since its formation, the Super Team has been led by MDHC executives with William R McDonnell becoming the first Super Team Director…

Clearly this is Mr. McDonell's son. If the oblique blended wing aircraft can or has been executed, it’d handle supersonic Mach numbers unlike the B-2. Perhaps a huge breakthrough in dash-loiter capability required by more advanced ISR/Strike missions. It does not appear to me as a low risk, currently available technology to be used on the LRS-B. In addition, I understand that Lockheed is the design agent for the Boeing/Lockheed LRS-B entrant anyway.

Anyone suppose this patent was to address the 2037 Bomber?

what a strange/cool looking form.

it reminds me on that plan form that some students/nasa made that could change directions in flight to utilize different geometry.

I think there are things in the works that will/do look more like your typical triangle, and I would assume that is what they will be using around 2040. maybe what you have here is some sort of drone. I know the new long range bomber is going to use allot of drones to help it out.

Interesting to note the "tumbling" and nice skills again by Citrus.

Didn't the resident black triangle expert provide a name for it at the time....(i'm thinking Phantasm but cant be sure?).

He said the plasma bloom was a countermeasure (why is a countermeasure visible I wonder?) but if it were to mark your retina as suggested- that would make sense in a draw curtains/hide under bed/put wet towel round head kind of way.


Edit:
I think I know your answer to this but could this just be a test of some sort of sky projection/holographic technology.....the plasma bloom/lights/fuzzy edge etc seem out of place for something that is supposed to be stealthy?

He did call it Phantasm. But that could have been the BS part. Although I suspect if the name Phantasm or a similar name is regarding a real life program that it could be for something inside or on the triangle, not the crafts it's self name.

As far as counter measures. Probably a plasma bloom of some sort. probably generated by lasers or microwaves or radio beams or something. Where they converge the bloom happens making it steerable and controllable. Maybe it's used like a shield to zap incoming missiles and short them. Maybe it's like a counter measure that fools the missile or makes the missile chase it instead. Maybe it can short enemy aircraft if it gets too close.

That Iranian pilot had an encounter with something like that. What about the Foo fighters of WW2. maybe they were something similar too. I really have no idea.

Personally I think they were doing it for show since it was over an area where I doubt they would have hostile action taken against it. ( Low altitude over a west los angeles neighborhood. )

The 4 light was not nuts and bolts. It dissolved into a filament and got absorbed or something. I say plasma.

In awe of it all.Just rewatching the first series of the XFiles when the Triangle appears in Ep3..Cant believe its 25 years old now.Chris Carter had some "interesting" info for storylines.
