Not to bitch too much, but the third picture shows a F-4 Phantom (Presumed RF-4) and a T-38 Talon.
And the f-104 was called the Starfigher if i remember correctly. I saw one hanging at the smithsonian in D.C. and man, this thing look like a rocket with wings!
TextEvery description of a real possible Aurora sighting describes something like an XB70. It makes no sense whatsoever to cancel such an awesome weapon just because another plane flew into it. No way. Just looking at the old XB pix gives me chills. How flat out awesome of a machine. Unstoppable at speed. The XB may also have been the first succesfull shot at replacing the SR71. Makes no sense at all to mothball em. They are probably still greased up and ready to go.
TextFor you doubters. Take every credible Aurora sighting and compare the physical characteristics to the XB. The similarities are chilling. The Aurora is just the modern hypersonic XB. I do not doubt speed above mach 10 at all.

I strongly believe that the Aurora is actually a Northrop Grumman project not Lockheed. The B-2 was thought to be a lockheed project for most of the time it was in development.
