Well you can't deny there are certainly delta-winged or flying-winged aircraft within the inventory of the USAF that resemble a majority of the craft purported in "black triangle" sightings.
This whole "Black Triangle" conspiracy started around the 1990's coinciding with when the USAF was beginning to explore a lot of new concept aircraft, including Delta-winged aircraft, and when many of the purported craft like the TR-3B, the Aurora and so on were sighted. Put 2 and 2 together...
I'm denying that that they could be UFO's, but I think for the time being the majority of the sightings are cases of mistaken identity.
Some of the characteristics of the reports of Flying Triangles that are inconsistent with deployment of a
covert DoD aircraft include:
(1) Locations and sightings near cities and on Interstate highways (see Map 4).
(2) Low altitude in plain sight of eyewitnesses.
(3) Flying at extremely low speed or hovering in plain sight of eyewitnesses.
(4) The aircraft sometimes fly with easily noticeable bright lights. Some aircraft have blinding white lights.
Others have “bright disco lights”, usually flashing combinations of red, green or blue.
The trend of open deployment as described in this report is not consistent with secret operation of an advanced DoD aircraft. For example, crude examination of the (anecdotally derived) patterns of deployment of previously developed DoD stealth aircraft programs, including the F-117 and the B-2 aircraft, show that the pattern of deployment of unacknowledged F-117 and B-2 aircraft, prior to their acknowledgement by DoD, is different from the patterns for the Flying Triangles.
Prior to acknowledgement of the F-117 and B-2 aircraft, only rare night time sightings occurred in the sparsely populated sections of Nevada, California and a few other states (see F-117 and B-2 in 12).
Flying at low altitude over populated areas was rarely reported for the F-117 or B-2.
In contrast, the Flying Triangle deployment, especially during the 1990s, appears more consistent with the open and public operation of these aircraft.
In some cases (for example see the above description of the Port Washington Triangle), the deployment may be more consistent with an attempt to display or to be noticed.
There appears to be little or no attempt to hide.
Hence, the cumulative recent data from several databases lead us to modify the tentative NIDS hypothesis, published in July 2003, that the Triangles are covertly deployed DoD aircraft.
Well first off, how the heck do we know how and where the government tests Black aircraft?
Perhaps it could be a coordinated disinformation campaign. Testing exotic craft in open areas to deliberately promote this kind of confusion and dithering were going through on the boards right now. Perhaps they don't, but nonetheless it's a dubious claim at best.
Just a guess but that coincides with some major air bases and installations located around those places. Namely Nellis, Edwards, A51, Niagara Falls, and Fairchaild
In earlier reports, NIDS outlined a tentative correlation between reported sightings of Triangles and the locations of Air Mobility Command and Air Force Materiel Command bases in the United States.
These reports and hypotheses derived from them can be found in the “Research News” section (www.nidsci.org...) of the NIDS web site.
We don't we can only go on previous testing of black aircraft like the F117 and B2 and they don't fall into that pattern.
Just as a comparison below is a map of the sightings that took place during the Belgium flap notice how they correlate with roads or highways.
Interesting, but then again, maybe different aircraft require different test parameters?
Agreed, but what type of aircraft needs to fly at very low speed and hover with no sound ?
Stealth perhaps, except there are witnesses and if they are trying this same test over and over again then clearly it is not working, unless of course they want to be seen.
I think it's safe to say it's a combination of military aircraft and unexplained phenomena/UFO's.
However if any new evidence came to to light I would change my mind tommorow.
