I saw this same commercial this evening. I thought it was quite strange. Normally companies spend money on tv commercials to advertise a product, so
they can make more money from the public when that same product is purchased in greater numbers. Northrop Grumman doesn't sell anything to the
public, they sell products to the government. So why are they advertising to the public? Seems strange to me. It's not like they are saying "we're
the first video the modeling of the craft and if you look in the reflection of the glasses we can see the craft begins to hover
in the second video listen to what she's saying, they said we couldn't become invisible, we couldn't see everything. that in itself makes me
shudder. not to mention at the very end again hinting at totally invisible craft w the parting of the clouds
No you see a reflection that's incomplete. That doesn't mean it's hovering. The aircraft at the end isn't seen because it's above the camera
showing a shadow on the clouds. It's a classified project, of course they're not going to show it openly.
Lockheed doesn't either and they have commercials too. It's all about politics.
That was sort of what I was thinking. That they are just trying to influence congress men and women, and people who make other important decisions
that could effect their contracts (even if doing so in an indirect way, through public commercials).
This was a "Super" game commercial as well. And they sell all of their products to the public since the government is "We the People" or suppose
to be. Big contract coming up for the next generation bomber, supposed to 55-Million a piece and that estimate is at least 10 years old so probably
double that amount.
Will be a big fight over who gets to build it and since the contract will most likely decide what company stays in business, its important now to tout
their image to the general public so they can cajole congress into awarding the contract to the one that is in their state. Dog and pony show and has
everything to do with money and contracts and nothing to do with disclosure, at least not the alien contact disclosure.
I'm definitely not trying to come across like I am an expert on aviation, as I'm not. I simply find it very interesting that they would disclose
this technology during primetime'ish television. TPTB have to reveal what they are doing in some form or fashion as is law, i feel this to be one of
I agree with DeadSeraph - it is really odd that they would purchase commercial air time when there's no public market for any of their 'products'.
Nor can I think of any reason they would need to promote public relations among the average TV viewer...
The only thing that comes to mind (and please don't flame me for this, I realize it's extremely far fetched):
Maybe it has something to do with the recent CIA claims about UFO sightings really being formerly classified military aircraft - I mean, those
Northrop Grumman planes in the videos are the 'classic' triangular 'UFO' shape, so maybe it is part of an attempt by the government to get the general
public to automatically think "oh just the latest military craft" anytime they see anything triangular in the sky...
For what reason?...(and here's the 'flame worthy' part)...Maybe the gov't are anticipating an increase of triangular aircraft sightings which are in
fact 'not' military in nature but are actually 'other (or parallel) worldly'?
I know - stupid, but it popped into mind, so I thought I might as well share...
****Edit to say - please disregard all of the above - I don't know how to 'undo' a post..

The new bomber is decided this spring. They're trying to help their case if they lose the contract and decide to appeal it. It worked with the
tanker contract for Boeing, so they're hoping it will work for them too.
this coincides exactly with my thoughts
are they preparing us for some form of disclosure, whether it be increased activity for these forms of craft or simply letting us know that yes we
have the technology and have been working it with it for x amount of years.
If they lose to the Lockheed/Boeing team there's a good chance Northrop Grumman doesn't last many more years. They're going to do everything
possible to set up an appeal, just in case.
If they lose this contract, and the evidence points to them losing it, about all they have are UAVs until the sixth generation fighter in 2018. UAVs
aren't going to be big money like the bomber and fighter contracts.
