The source states that the US Navy revealed a secret US Air Force Black Project. Black Projects are special access and very tightly controlled. They aren't shared between services unless it's a joint program. I didn't see any indication that this is a joint program. How did the Navy find out about a Black Project that belongs to the Air Force?
I surprized that noone else picked up on that. The Fact that the Navy had access to a black project they weren't working on leads me to seriously question the reliability of this Information and it's source!
People Need to watch for inconsistencies like this! That is how we spot Disinformation and Misinformation.

hey, when you say 'black' do you mean black as in the (f-117, b-2)?
because ive seen americans get excited by the prospect of another 'black' aircraft project and i think why?
In the United States a black project is a top-secret military/defense project, unacknowledged by the government, military personnel, and defense contractors. Familiar examples of U.S. military aircraft developed as black projects are the F-117 stealth fighter and B-2 stealth bomber, which were highly classified and denied to exist until ready to be announced to the public.

I was replying to st3ve_o, if you check his quote in my previous reply, he wondered why anyone would get excited by a black aircraft, saying that it would be easy to see in the sky as opposed to a silvery one. he seemed confused about the meaning of 'Black' taking it to mean painted black.

Well, actually no where in the Janes article does it say that the USAF program was a "Black" or Special Access Program, and not all classified or even secret programs are SAP's.
