On October 25, a strange craft was seen — in broad daylight — flying amid the heavy traffic of the United States’ air corridors above the state of Oregon.
On the ground, air traffic control was also seeing strange things. Its radar was intermittently tracking an unregistered object moving at unusually high speeds.
So F-15 interceptor fighters from the U.S. Air Force were scrambled to take a look.
The unidentified flying object was first detected tearing through the air above Northern California by radar stations in Oakland. It was 4:30 p.m. It was unexpected. It was traveling “very fast at 37,000”.
Now "War Zone" has obtained ─ through a freedom of information claim ─ a small mountain of documents and hours of audio recordings detailing Oregon’s air traffic controllers' actions.

Didn't seem to be traveling that fast.
Doesn't seem the military knew what it was as they sent an interceptor. Maybe they did that just for show?
At first I thought it was going 37,000 mph. That would be something.

Doesn't the military let the FAA know what its flight plans are? 37,000 feet is not ABOVE where many passenger jets fly. Perhaps Air Traffic Control didn't get the memo.
There are three SSTs in development. One is scheduled to fly a 3/4 demonstrator this year, and is a regular SST. NASA is developing a Quiet SST that can stay supersonic over populated areas, and the third is still several years from even a demonstrator. A small demonstrator will have a reduced RCS, especially at long range.
