It was a line item for the b2 but he may of been referring to a different aircraft.

Here's a question for speculation. Why the hell did they start flying the B-2's over Steve's head after the initial siting. To tick him off, lot of money just for that. Putting the toothpaste back in the tube? That never works. I find that part of it rather odd. Quite the little display they put on.

So that they could say "No, those were B-2s." This is going to come out, but it's coming out on their schedule. There was a reason it was there at that time, but we aren't going to get anything before they want us to.

This was my first thought too actually. They are very fastidious about putting stuff under cover even when it doesn't really matter. Also the flight of three seemed more than just a "test" flight. More a show of power, a VIC of penetrators.

Right . Some Experimental Planes had more then one flight some in the 2 didgit range in flight




as for example

the X 1 A though E

Good guess, but too large. And there's one glaring discrepancy in addition.

On another note, I would redirect my thoughts to aspect ratio.

Now if I can find out what satellites were overhead at the time it might show what these aircraft were up to, my monies on it being a show of force.

Even if they were just a few demonstrators, a flight of three would still have the same effect and look like they could have a squadron of these.

Most of them had multiple flights. The exception being the one offs. The X planes were key to the technology advances that we are seeing today.

Seems too angular to be a b2, and too narrow as well. It seems that this might be a new project.

(also: ATS got a new site change?

Probably not the first to say this by now, but an Aurora? a reply to: Domo1

Aurora didn't exist as a program. There was/is an SR-71 replacement, but it's not called (and never was called) Aurora.

is it just me or do the vapour trails seem a bit lop sided.

May be the return of the skyquake has something in common with the new sightings?

Both the same mission. There's a reason that they both look similar.


Aha! So now we know it's a new stealth bomber! I wonder what the range and payload capacity is?

(sshh, if we keep playing 20 questions, maybe Zaphod will slip up hehe)

There is no "right" answer, because this is a new plane.

I don't think it's a B2, the angles are wrong for one thing.



www.reddit.com...


except that you can clearly see the plane in the picture makes a slight turn (it is not symetrical -> turning) and this is influencing the perspective and makes it look sharper than it is.

edit: for example look at this picture, the angle of the wings looks sharper when turning, because of perspective www.backroadswest.com...

The whole fleet is getting reskinned. They get a new skin every few years as improvements to RAM coatings are made. There were a number of screw ups, including by the fire department in that fire. It should have been put out almost immediately, and they screwed up fighting it.

Here is the Executive Summary of the AIB report.


Ah, that's by the way then. The plane that was damaged was cleaned up with a novel process using ice pellets, the 'skinning' came after.

Exactly. They had to clean it up to do the damage assessment and hunt for anything they couldn't see. Then after it got back to the depot, and the repairs were complete, they did the upgrades that were planned, including the new skin. I think this was one of the first to get the new SATCOM, and AESA radar too.
