In what could be the largest top-secret aircraft program since the B-2 bomber, the U.S. Air Force is racing to develop a stealthy, supersonic, long-range unmanned reconnaissance plane that would give commanders better intelligence on the ever-shifting targets in the war on terrorism and elsewhere.
Like the SR-71, the heart of this new program is shrouded in intense secrecy. But unlike the SR-71, this new “black” bird would be capable of deploying an array of weapons from high-precision munitions to devices that can emit pulses of electromagnetic energy to wreak havoc on everything from power grids to electronic equipment.

i have pictures i took back in 1991 of the suposed contrail with rings along it which some say is caused by the arora these photos were taken near canberra the capital of australia i am happy to scan them and email to anyone who would like to see them and give me an opinion about them.
It came out a few years ago that the name "Aurora" was the classified name of the B2 project, and it's funding. There probably IS a new spy plane flying, or at least in the testing stages, but I doubt that it's named Aurora.

Anybody familiar with the story that back in the mid 1990's, an aircraft suspected of being Aurora suffered a crash while trying to take off from Boscombe Down? The story states that the aircraft looks similar to the YF-23. Maybe the YF-23 was never to go into production at all and was merely a cover for technology developed for Aurora. The best place to hide something is right under someone's nose.
