From elsewhere, I was shared this:



The size is wildly wrong for the Malan Triangle. However, the planform is not.

Could the Malan Triangle be a scale demonstrator?

or this could be wild horse pucky.





or this could be wild horse pucky.


could be a trick

remember the mock SR-71 upside down on a pole at groom lake?
trying to show image but ATS won't lat me paste.

If you ever see any more pix of odd aircraft there, post them!

Screen grab it, time stamp it and post.

just be ready for skepticism.

It's Yinchuan. Chinese were big on hardened shelters in mountains for a long time. Especially on the northern frontier (Sino- Soviet split).

There might be interesting things happening there, I have no idea, but it's not unique in terms of the mountain.

The older fighters are a Fishbed and a Farmer.

Because of the size.

You're looking at something 30 to 35 feet long, 42 ft on the outside, and a max wingspan of 14 feet.

High speed manned aircraft that size are not likely to be feasible.

Also, the Chinese are known to be working on high speed UAVs.

That two facts dovetail.

Myself I would say some of them are decoys. Look at the top four, wing shadow off the wing leading edges. The next 6 nothing, the triangular nothing the next one nothing. Then the bottom one wing shadow again. For me I would like a look through a glass at the original image.

Could it be because the ones showing little shadow are closer to the ground/not as tall as the ones with visible shadows? Not saying you're wrong, but it may be just an angle thing.

I've been watching this base for some times now. It started as a runway, then taxi ways to an inside hanger, and the complex behind the mountain doubled in size.
It changes in aircraft often.
It certainly has my attention. 👍


The runway is 2 miles long.
Do you know of anymore mountain bases like this? I keep searching with no luck.

Where you're pointing to may be more archeological than military. This whole area is associated with the Western Xia Mausoleums of the Tangut Empire

Seems more like a Geothermal Power plant, didn't consider it a archeological site.

Probably agree, but I wonder about the quality of the imagery. Shadows and a lack of detail can distort important details.

it does look similar to a D-21 drone though.


You probably know this already but the Chinese recovered a Lockheed D-21 in their territory.

D21 Number 527 at the Chinese Aviation Museum.

Before it was put on covered display in China

Also came across this today on twitter


As already pointed out it is just a photo shop from a pic of a Chinese H-6 Badger.

Rumor has it the fastmover UAV was outside, along with all the others, because a mucket muck wanted to have an inspection/tour and insisted on everything being outside rather than in hangars. The muckety apparently didn't care whether or not there might be a sat passing overhead in the lead up. Or it could have been telegraphing, I suppose.

Telling thing would be if its self powered or sent aloft via Rocket to reenter at Hypersonic.

That's a little big for a rocket.

Its at least 30 ft (9m) long.
