With some trepidation I post to this thread. I don't post very often but as black aircraft were the reason I joined ATS years ago it seems fitting I
add my two cents. I have been following these issues since the days of Freedom Ridge and the Swiss Mountain Bat and the other Interceptors. First off
Zaph I have always found you to be rather accurate on your prognostications over the years and I have learned to pay attention to you when you give a
heads up. Correct me if I am wrong but I seem to remember you saying not all that long ago that things were in the pipeline. You walk a fine line for
some one with such good sources and I wonder whether you have run into OPSEC issues with anyone. I am surprised Gariac has not weighed in on this. I
seem to remember being told he loved to bounce through the desert in his Escalade.
I must admit after looking at the data myself without reference to others opinions I have to say that these are indeed two different aircraft.
Leading and trailing edges are different as is the angles of the fuselage/wings. Just my "layman's" opinion but it is a bit of a studied one. I do
want to state that I do not consider Steve Douglas an "unconfirmed source", he is a very knowledgeable source. I don't always agree with where his
analysis; his siting being a stealth transport for instance, but he has always been straight with his data to the best of my knowledge and is a true
investigator of black world aircraft. He has no fear of going out on a limb.
So what do we have here, I will lay out my observations which may or may not be connected.
1. We have the new hanger at Dreamland, big, behind a berm. Lot's of speculation on the article or articles stashed away in there, UAV/manned who
knows, but really big.
2. Two strange birds in the sky.
3. The return of the sky quakes.
I of course don't know anything definitively but I'll tell you this that these are the most interesting sitings/events that I have seen for many a
year and I look forward with expectation. Interesting times.
BTW the Russians use a TU-214ON for their open skies flights.
