Aircraft flying out of that area in the past were used to gather data on nuclear testing done there. Once by accident too. I BELIEVE it may have been an Israeli or South African test. The aircraft was flying over the South Pacific on a mission, and the radar detectors went nuts. They had to decontaminate the plane before the pilot could get out after landing.

Hey guys, I came across this short blog post online thought it might be useful:
Black Triangle Sighting in Waynesville, Ohio on February 18th 2014 – Distinct iron looking triangle with 2/3 white lights with a 30ish sec delay green light

Although that is the full text, it does fit the description and provide an additional date/location to identify flight paths.

It may be that Astr0's story of breakaway humans is also part of the BS. Note that Astr0 said 75% or lower.
I think it's pretty clear there are Big Black Triangles. However, it's not clear that they are 'warp drive' or 'anti-gravity' as opposed to advanced dirigibles.
Note that most sightings are low and slow. They may actually be fragile low-performance craft (when low towards the ground, and quite vulnerable to weather & enemy fire), but useful for some ISR or special forces logistics missions.
A very high trans-stratospheric observational platform might be quite useful and effectively invisible from the ground in daylight (being above almost all of the air), but maneuverable to surprise hard targets where satellites couldn't. Solar powered, electrical drive.
The 'city-like' tiled/irregular surface on the bottom could be for radar diffusion, since you can't turn it to 'knife edge on'.
Maybe these BBT's are them, or they are the logistics transit from here up to there.
Reason for secrecy is obvious, if disclosed then intelligence targets could take a much more intensive search for them, and being slow airships, they couldn't run away.

Thanks for your help and guidance thus far Zaphod.....
I know we (i speak for other aviation clueless ATSers) cant keep up usually, so thanks for your help!!
