Well, at certain ranges, the right angles, and with the right light, one can make out a Boeing to look like just about anything.
Remember, your military is made up of civilians in uniform. They are just as likely to mistake something for what it's not as anyone else is.
So my guess is it's final wisdom.
I believe there is life out there, I believe they do know about us. I also believe they've likely studied us...
but putting themselves in plain sight, while seemingly keeping a "no-contact" rule active... unlikely.
You'd think an advanced race would have a little more sense about them.
