Do not blame you. The antelope valley gives me a face like a kid in a candy store.
I stayed in Palmdale after the tour, went outside for a smoke with bearcat 436HP (hotel was next to Plant 42)
Recorded audio of the range being active and advisories going out to pilots, then recorded something moving very low and very fast over the range with my cell phone.
That video is alot less blurry than the one I posted a few days ago.
Could be a helicopter, but.... Well, who knows, maybe I'll post it and see what people think.
Fast forward just five minutes later to the next awesome encounter of the evening.
When I returned to bar, my girlfriend had a "deer in headlights" look on her face.
Alot of guys had been talking to her whilst I was gone, going so far as to begin bragging about projects. I wont say which company it was they were affiliating themselves with.... let's just say it was one of the companies that lost the LRS-B project.
She whispered into my ear: "babe, you need to listen to whatever the hell these guys are saying, I don't understand it exactly, but holy $#!?"
Of course as soon as I kissed her on the cheek, all lips tightened up, and their attention was taken by another cute girl by herself at the bar.
These two things aren't connected, I'm just saying that valley is a place of wonder.

I get that deer in the headlights look a lot. Heh. I'll get a "hey, did you hear about...." message and start digging and look like that a lot. Or I'll toss an idea at someone and get, "well if you do that, and add this....". Those usually hurt more though because they involve math that cheats and thinks it's got to use letters and funny symbols.

We're all chasing that Sigma signal, but I'm no Denys Overholster. You start talking formulas and mathematics(besides rudimentary physic principles) and my brain is AWOL.
Seems like There are so many combinations of projects that blow my mind, and are all now somewhat plausible to introduce. Recently, a friend told me about a theory that the B-2 can still do stealthy things that most civilians would laugh at the idea of. Plugged in that idea with how the SR-71/A-12 look almost exactly the same to observers, and an entire new rabbit hole of silent propulsion and stealth opened up below my feet that I didn't even think about.

Oh I know. As soon as formulas are tossed around my brain screams and goes to sit in the corner gibbering.

I've seen at least one aircraft testing over Wyoming three or four times that was interesting. It went sort of white as a NASA program. There are a couple that that had me sitting with a look like I had been hit between the eyes with a pole after hearing about them.

I had a picture that will never see the light of day dropped on me over a year ago that I still pull out and look at just in case I was wrong every other time I looked at it.

Good times.

Wyoming always jumped out at me as an interesting place for aviation. Especially since F.E Warren doesn't have a landing strip, and MOA's were expanded dramatically up around there. The hints you provide this board have always made me check out WY, it just seems so darn convenient.
As for what I've seen, I still don't talk/will never report on what my girlfriend and I saw in Alaska, we had a balcony suite and watched something that defied the laws of reality that it made us both begin giggling with laughter.
No, it wasn't the northern lights, ive seen them multiple times whilst hiking through the yukon, and our cruise.
nor was it anything from thelat secret "maintenance yard" located near Fairbanks Alaska.
This thing defied logic.
After I get out to Darwin, CA, Wyoming shall be on the top of the list in destinations to go camping.

The one that I kept seeing was around the Fort Bridger area. It was coming from somewhere else and just showing off. They were flying low enough to leave a contrail, and the first time I saw it, I noticed it 10+ miles behind a commercial flight. It caught and passed that flight like it was standing still. And it did it without a sound I could hear.

If you go by Rawlins, at night you can see a stationary strobe blinking. It looks like a light on a cell tower, but there's no red light, and no mountain in the area it's at. During the day on the other side of I-80 you can see a billboard antenna on the top of a mountain.

With the things they put on patches nowadays, And the technology we've developed together as a species....
I can only imagine. Like you said once in a post.
Pardon if don't quote you exactly, it was something along the lines of:
"95% of people here would think it couldn't fly."

Back in the day, if you said "I saw a gorilla in a cowboy hat, smoking a cigar in a plane that didn't have any propellers" you'd have been labeled as a basket case too.

They'd come after me with pitchforks now if I dropped some info out there. Heh. There are days I've thought about dropping some of the docs I have and grabbing popcorn to watch the chaos. But it's too ingrained into me that you don't do that.

God it would be fun though.

We all know you have "the right stuff"

But keep it in your pocket, and I'll make a popcorn emoji for you when it's not a S.S.D.D on Above top secret.
But wow, the releases coming out now....

You aren't kidding. Best one is an article on a fairly mainstream site that had everyone that knew going "WTF?! Where did they get that?!" They were completely wrong on what it was, but they shouldn't have had it in the first place.

If the article is incorrect then there would be no harm in pointing us in the right direction to go take a look at it.

The AFTC Museum stores some aircraft at South Base, but they don't have a hangar there. They did have a restoration and storage hangar at North Base, but they got kicked out and that huge space was allocated to the tiny X-56 MUTT (until MUTT got kicked out and sent down the road to NASA). So, the Museum moved into Hangar 1864 (former home of the SR-71 detachment circa late 1990s). Now they are being kicked out of there to make room for "another program."

Progress is being made toward easing enough money for the new facility outside the West Gate near the Century Circle. This will make the museum accessible to the public without having to go through the hassle of getting onto the main base area. There is a Gathering of Eagles fundraiser banquet in Lancaster on October 1. This year's theme is honoring the F-117A test program personnel. Nominally, that means everybody: pilots, engineers, maintainers, etc., but the named honorees are five pilots. Other special guests include former test wing commanders Larry McClain and Pete Winters. There will be a discussion panel and some exhibits.
