Exactly Zaph..Amount of UFO reports Im seeing on Yahoo newsfeed now..No one is panicked in the streets or lobbying parliament for answers..Today its just a part of life.. Top Secret Aircraft flyovers are not going to shake the general public.

Welcome to Australia where the reporters are 5 months behind the times...Slow news day with no Pollie scandals,Police Chases or Kangaroo fights.



it got through. I don't think the military likes that kind of PR, so would it not have been better if they just said that they understood what it was, without giving any details? At least that might shut everyone up.

If they have a reason for not talking they will find a coverup story.Same as why noone is saying of the plane crash at Nellis late last year.


That would be the Eric Schultz crash. A good mystery!

If a drone and controlled it could have been dropped out of the sky very fast if they heard any scramble chatter I would think.

If it transitioned in and out of stealth another possibility I would think.

Given that the Sun was low in the sky and close to sunset, that sounds like someone got their hours wrong and it was supposed to go through at night-time and at a higher altitude.

Not all high speed aircraft are black programs, and the military doesn't have a list of every project out there. NASA is doing some work with quiet boom technology that is going to be somewhat stealthy, especially at the edge of a commercial radar range.

NASA did a lot of high speed tests in the 00s. My recollection is not a lot of successes. The again, this is research.

x43a doesn't really have much to do with the direction quiet boom aircraft took.

NASA and most quiet boom designs are intended to mitigate booms at supersonic speeds not mach 10. however I wouldn't be surprised if they could use similar shaping to quiet the boom of a low hypersonic aircraft going mach 5 or more.

Altitude will do that. Get high enough and the boom won't reach the ground, or if it does, it'll be barely noticeable.

I agree altitude is one of many mitigating factors.

I mentioned the x43 in reference to "not all high speed aircraft are black projects."

Bit more news..



To break the sound barrier without creating massive shockwaves, the plane will also need to change shape during flight — though quite subtly. Most of those in-flight changes will be imperceptible to passengers, however.

White colored would usually mean lower altitude for camouflage if intended for ISR.

Or for nuclear war.

If it was a test. If the aircraft was returning for whatever reason they're not going to tell anyone, and there are times I can see them not talking to ATC. It wouldn't be the first time they've ignored rules and done something.


Are we sure the aircraft wasn't Russian or Chinese?

They have no known projects that could do it. They aren't going to risk one flying over CONUS any more than we'd fly our projects over their mainland areas.

Unless...it has become fully operational.

Which wouldn't change the fact that they aren't going to fly it over CONUS anymore than we'd overfly Russia or China.

Anyone think it's a coincidence that shortly after this incident, both the Oregon ANG and CA ANG had snap readiness drills to launch the entire wing on short notice? Maybe it is, maybe not..

you saying the Chinese were playing with their own toy?

or is it possible it was one of ours but most folks don't know about it and the ANG not really in on it aren't going to take this lying down. if it's an adversary they wanna make sure they can foil it and embarrass said country. if it's ours at least it's good training to be able to detect and intercept the most cutting edge technology or next big thing in aerial combat and get a leg up on it a decade before our adversary gets around to it keeping America's edge sharp.

thing is if it's an advesary that incurred then they got a breakthrough in their turbines and range allowing them to fly from Asia all the way to the usa taunt us and then fly back home or they've got some stealth tanker. where could they base out of that's close enough to contus.

I wanna believe it's ours.

I dunno EB can you expand upon your thoughts regarding this incident. you understand the factors better than most of us here and have a clearer insight. besides it's an excuse to keep you here for a little while longer since it's so far in between your posts when you do visit and I rather enjoy your presence in these threads.

If it was a threat I would think there would be a hell of a lot more air power launched.When they get near major cities I would think the panic button would be hit.At the start it was "What the hell is it?"...
Enemy flyovers did happen in WW2 and the Reds tried it during the Cold War over Alaska.I doubt very much the Chinese have the aerial range or stealth to get that deep into the US undetected..
