Recently, NIDS was approached by an aircraft designer who had read the Illinois UFO Report on the NIDS web site and who hypothesized that the object reported by the four police officers in January 2000 was very reminiscent of a large, lighter than air (LTA) object using an electrokinetic drive. The individual claimed that by combining LTA with electrokinetic technology, both of which have been known for decades, the DoD had likely found a highly synergistic increase in performance and that they had built this aircraft, probably in the early to mid 1980s.

I think it is reasonable to assume that these triangle shaped craft are NOT covert Dept. Of Defense aircraft. The fellow from the NUFORC website told me that these craft are almost always spotted near major urban centers or from major interstate highways. This is inconsistent with both covert testing and/or operation of a secret DoD aircraft. I was on Interstate 15 when I saw mine.
Also, when the craft began to move after remaining stationary, it did not appear to be moving fast enough to generate lift. This suggests some other type of propulsion system is utilized, obviously not the propulsion systems we are familiar with.
Keep your eyes on the skies
EDIT: To mention that the guy from the NUFORC website told me that sightings of these craft have jumped by 400% in the past year.
