Sorry to disappoint you, B2StealthBomber, but the pilot bio that mentioned an altitude record in a classified airplane was misleading. It listed some
types of tests he had done in the airplane without identifying the plane itself, and said, "He holds the altitude record in this aircraft." As it
turns out, the plane in question was Tacit Blue, and he simply held the record for highest flight in that aircraft (25,000 feet).
The person who assembled that bio did so using information that was incomplete and out of context. The text, as published, implied that the pilot had
flown seven classified aircraft when he had, in fact, flown only one classified aircraft (Tacit Blue) over a period of seven months. The pilot himself
was not consulted before the bio was published, and the result was the propagation of erroneous information on the Internet and elsewhere.
