I haven't heard anything on aroura for a long time. I have been wondering what became of it. Do you think maybe the Aroura is/was a failed project? Remember, evey in the world of black projects, things don't always work.
25 years ago would be 1980 from now so the Aurora must have been operating all this time!. I heared the SR-71s are sort of being brought back becouse of problems with the Aurora.

'Aurora' whatever it might prove to be, was first reported 25 years ago. If it was having trouble I would have thought it was an operational matter rather than a budgetary one? Maybe its gone quiet because of structural problems, after all 25 years is a long time to hurtling around at hypersonic speeds.

well with a story that is that vag I would hardly call it information. But none the less it is something new. Yah got to wonder though how many drinks did this pilot have to openly say that he flies a classified plane. Considering that most pilots in skunkworks and area 51 wouldn't even talk to there families about there work because if goverment threat etc about leaked info. Just the fact that there is a date on your post and you refer to 2 week ago and canada the gov would have him tracked and found with in 24 hours. considering that i can figure that much im sure that a top secret mil pilot could too and would keep his trap shut.
Dont get me wrong i love speculating about the plane but that story to me doesn't hold water too well.
Also i highly doubt the plane is still refered or ever was called aurora in actual training or service.
If the your above statment was in sarcasim i will delete this post but you need to make it clear what you actually think about this "new information"
