What if it looks something like this:



Zaph DID say 94% of people wouldn't believe it.

In all serious though...could something like that fly? I mean we have these onboard computers now that can make unstable airframes air-worthy, right?

The companion is not built by lockheed. The problem with the F117 was it was only able to cover a certain range of radars. The companion covers a much larger spectrum.

I'm guessing one of two things:

1. It looks radially different from anything we've seen

2. It looks very similar to other aircraft we've seen, and only people really into aviation would be impressed by its appearance

Wow, I sound like a politician. I managed to say something without saying something.

The fact Zaph said 94% of people would dismiss it makes me think it looks a lot like something we already have seen. It's more believable to think it looks exotic since we know so little about it.

To someone like me, a triangle is a triangle and a delta wing is a delta wing...the A-12 and the flying doritio shapes all look pretty much the same to me, I'm not overly impressed by one diagram over another. To someone like Zaph, with his knowledge -- the small details mean quite a bit, so a fin here or a certain angle there makes all the difference.

It's probably a 737 with a RAM coating lol


Lol, wow those two things are on total opposites of the spectrum.... Either it looks radically different, or its something we've seen before, with subtle yet unique differences

Maybe it's just a Tacit Blue with a bubble canopy

Duh guys, it's obviously the F-305 flown by Col. O'Neil:



Or it's this thing, whatever the hell this ugly thing is:



But, my inside source says it's actually this beauty:

I think I remember seeing this...and my subsequent inability to trace it made me realise that for The Powers That Be, the wayback machine and a few other tricks are no barrier to disappearing into the ether...

You'd be surprised. There are a number of papers about radar evasion technologies that disappeared, but can still be found in the right places.
