In the beginning of 2011, a group of aviation enthusiast from England(and possibly from other places too) came with interesting topic on
MilitaryPhotos forum. There was a specific member "2495" that led all the discussion. Howewer, soon afterwards he disappeared from the scene. Group
from England had one aim - to disocver the fastmover that roves through UK airspace by the decades. They've spent over 14 years on watching and
making conclusions and finally they decided to show results of their work.
Their thread called "Hunting the Fast Movers" included photos of supposed fastmover(s) that were roaring through the UK airspace. The file included
6 pics. Unfortunatelly, OP post was deleted later.
Here is original "2495" post that I've found using Internet archive.

First a point I'd like to make – very important point actually. At no time has any serving member of the UK (or any other nations) Armed Forces
spoken to, engaged in, or in any way assisted us on our project. It has been done exclusively by civilians who have acted within the laws of the
United Kingdom at all times – this includes remaining on public land / waters for all excursions. (Please note also that the photos clearly are not
the originals nor high resolution and the hi res will never become available either. Reason being that this wasn't an exercise based in malice /
monetary gain in any way shape or form).
The second point I'd like to draw to peoples attention is that for many decades it has been proven beyond all doubt that the CIA, NSA, NRO and all
other agencies protect their SAP (Special Access Projects) behind a wall of obfuscation and deceit, and since the 'U-2' and A-12 (later to become
SR-71) they have used the field of ufology as an effective counter intelligence firewall. The murkier the better as far as these agencies are
concerned, and for us it is a validation of the fact that this area is a very valid research tool if you are selective about the materials you
It was after years (literal years) of sifting, sieving, discarding, interviewing and traveling to follow the most promising leads we got a focus
target area. This was the 'Black Triangles' mystery – and what a can of worms. There is enough material in that alone to chase a potential 8 in
test / operational vehicles of varying forms / uses. However the work served a purpose and funneled us downwards to the core of what we wanted to
investigate. I am sure many are familiar with the topic.
What appeared after a time was a very resounding pattern.
Cornwall – Mysterious sonic booms shaking windows and high altitude lights heading towards Wales.
Wales – high altitude black triangles rushing over head with a single strobing red light light on the underside. North Wales sightings were of
Scotland. The cluster of sightings and audio reports from here was astounding in detail, witness integrity and sheer numbers. Reports ranged from
'Space shuttles with snubbed noses' , 'Massive 'S' shaped curves being carved in the skies', night time 'express trains' roaring through the
air and the sudden rash of 'Low level Tornado flights deep in the night along side a deeper more rumbling engine sound heading East'. Girvan,
Stranraer, they all started to trickle in reports. Oh one snippet from a report of interest from 2008 - “If a C-17 goes low westward in the day time
over Girvan wheels down, its an absolute100% caste iron guarantee of a night time rumbling roaring sound”. We are not sure why this is so urgent
unless its bringing in fuel / fresh crews or other needed items for the mission but it actually did assist us some what.
Pattern became clear enough – It comes in high, very high over Cornwall, gets lower over wales and hits Scotland at altitudes low enough to be
visible. We decided we should start to organize a hill walking holiday.
Then the tragic events of 9-11 in New York and the Global War On Terror. Fast Black triangles and air quakes didn't just hit the UK any longer –
they moved down the eastern coast of the UK and started to creep across Europe, into eastern Europe and aimed right at the middle east.
Eye witnesses from the North Sea into Europe once again reported an extreme fast ' black arrow head with a single red light' and the characteristic
shaking windows. Further into Europe it again became a single extreme speed pulsing red light and no noise. Climbs to altitude and races off is our
boys signature and we knew it had in all probability gone from test article / dust off research craft to fully pressed into use – but we had no
concrete sightings in the ME or Afghanistan.
Then pay dirt dropped into our laps.
First the grape vine started to rumble with rumors of a very unusual airframe making sporadic stops in Afghanistan.
What ever this was it came in with zero engine noise onto a blacked out runway – just a rush of air and thumping heavy landing. On take off it
sounded like a 'B-1b with an attitude problem' – again though when it lifted off it was on an all blacked out runway.
Then a Civilian in Afghanistan was taking photos of the stars in long exposure, and there it was – the single fading in and out red light crossing
the skies. Taking the exposure length we knew it then.
If it was a test article, it was now operational and we knew for certain why the black triangle low level sightings had it as silent; it is, but only
when landing approach is being made.
Hope you like the montage. Yes the engines are mounted above the wings, yes the hull is a flattened shallow 'V', and it indeed has a single tail not
a pair unlike the SR-71. (The pictures are free to share / use but please remember they are low res for a very valid reason – the underside thermal
protection system and hull shape is unique and we agreed that for the time being is should stay under wraps. We were not looking to damage any assets,
just to find them).
The picture on the top left shows the shovel nose to perfection and the top right is one of the rarer out at sea 'Space shuttle like' 's' curves
and airframe re-entry like flight profile. These really were baffling and the last reported sighting was yesterday evening (28th Feb. 2011).#1
Is it loud? Ungodly bastards yes it is. Is it fast? Jaw dropping acceleration into the night sky. Does it land in silence? Yes it does.
I saved the best till last.
It might have two of the biggest loudest jet engines I have ever heard that fling it skywards, but theres a third engine on board – the ear
splitting roar? Its a rocket engine. Yes you read that right – the airframe climbs into the dark sky and away, then a sudden 'pop – rolling boom
followed by a deep bass rumbling' and the bright exhaust signature Sprints into the night.
If you do hunt it, take a stop watch. The numbers are beautiful.
Thats all folks – a twin seat manned high speed aircraft getting lots of use – airframe numbers are low, 6 at the very most from sighting
frequency / locations but they getting lots of air time. If you think all this is pie in the skies?

Upper left photo seems to be a fake, and the right down seems shows SR-71... but who knows? These pics weren't proven to be either fake or real
What this 'fastmover' would be? Any suggestions? Maybe it is related to the Swiss guys sighting from Tikaboo in 1999?
