Or any normal mission where the aircraft will have disruptive capabilities.

What I might imagine as missions for operational black craft.

*) long-range strategic surveillance

*) short-range tactical surveillance/air to ground targeting/signals intelligence

*) logistics for special forces at night

*) electronic counter measures

Interesting. Thanks for the elucidation.

Peace.

Its because they are done with the testing most likely. For now.

She could be taking different routs from tge norm so less people are spotting her.

But more likely is shes away from home and forward deployed lately. So unless your a chamorro fisherman or something your probably not going to see her until she comes home

That's too bad - I'm hosting my some friends later this week / weekend for my bud's bachelor party and we will be camping waay out in the middle of nowhere in west Texas on my friends property. So clear you can see the milky way out there.

Now I'll know if any of us see anything it probably means we had too much whiskey, not that we spotted a black platform overhead...

Id still keep looking up just in case. Theres other interesting stuff up there.

Where in texas?

I'm in DFW so I call it west TX, but we will be over near Haskell county, north of Abilene about 3 hours west of Ft. Worth. I am amazed at the sky any time we're out there, usually see satellites and shooting stars, but sadly no green streaks yet

I don't know if I have told this before but I'll describe what I saw back in late 2014 (Around December). I had just gotten off work and my dad was driving me home, it was around 12:10-12:15 AM and while we were around a minute from the house we were looking up through the front windshield and a low flying(possibly), triangular craft flew overhead, and it was completely silent/no noticeable noise. It was dark so you could only make out that it was triangular and and two GREEN exhaust/plumes in the back. We only saw it for a few seconds heading away and to the left.

This took place in Scottsdale AZ.

If the green girl is so in advance why don't using this advance on the futur B-21 bomber ?

Im going with drastically different mission profiles????

For sure I know but the engineering to build something like the green lady can surely serve to build the B-21 in term of software or aircraft skin or electronics.

Sure. That's why they put Corvette frames under Silverado bodies.

I dont think the b-21 has any parts that are grown in chemical vats does it? Totally different designs here. nothing that can be cross platformed.

a reply to: yuppa

Oh I dont know about that. Both probably have stuff thats "grown" but probably for different reasons.

Also, if the b21 has an "augmentation" to its propulsion to extend range, loiter and perhaps power other systems, then the two might have similar technologies here and there in common.

Bet the green lady has better looks though, hands down.

The use of borane 'zip' fuels (the stuff that makes it glow green) is a liability, not a benefit. Super toxic and difficult to handle, and really expensive engine rebuilds.

They'd rather get the performance in other ways if they can. There are some proposals here and there. The successor to the green lady's mission, whatever it is, probably won't glow green.

And B-21 is designed for MPG and unrefueled range, not top speed, just like commerical jets. Remember, generals think about winning through logistics.

That's probably something else.

The green-lady is supposedly a high-altitude high-speed supersonic craft, most likely a SR-71 class of thing for a SR-71 type of mission. The exhaust glows emerald green in a long straight line when using the high performance fuel.

Nobody (unclassified) has seen one on the ground; it's all speculation from seeing things and making logical suppositions.
