This is a bit of a pointless post,'cos I can't really back it up!
Anyhoo - A couple of years ago, I was watching an aviation documentary on "Discovery". A lot of time was spent talking to a high-ranking USAF
officer, while he was sat in his office. As is often the case, this guy had a display cabinet behind the desk, full of model aircraft, which was in
plain view behind him. It was a pretty good collection, lots of past and present USAF machines.
However, one in particular caught my eye - a wedge-shaped "lifting-body" type with, clear enough engine and cockpit detailing to rule out it being
any of the old experimental 60's Northrops and whatever.
I must stress that this was not a feature of the interview, it was just there in the background throughout.
I've often wondered - was it proof of some secret airframe, or a joke, perpetrated by the TV crew or the USAF,just to catch out the more observant
paranoids who were watching?!
I just wish I could remember what the bloody show was about....
