Spy and stealth planes—some with bizarre, bat-shaped wings, others with triangular silhouettes that imply otherworldly designs—have long generated UFO sightings and lore. And official denials feed rumors that the government isn’t telling us about alien ships. The CIA estimates that over half of the UFOs reported from the ’50s through the ’60s were U-2 and SR-71 spy planes. At the time, the Air Force misled the public and the media to protect these Cold War programs; it’s possible the government’s responses to current sightings of classified craft—whether manned or remotely operated—are equally evasive. The result is an ongoing source of UFO reports and conspiracy theories. Here are the Earth-built craft that likely have lit up 911 switchboards over the years.

Honestly the "top secret black project aircraft" mantra for ufo sightings is getting old.
There are so many sightings in so many places around the world that would have no reason for a top secret experimantal craft to flying around.

I don't know if it was flying in Gulf War I, but in OIF there were reports from U-2 pilots of an unknown UAV flying at their altitude. It was reportedly a bigger version of the Dark Star Tier III Minus.
The USAF has been known to fly black projects in combat zones, especially UAVs, since they can always blow them up if something goes wrong.
Do you have any copies of the picture with that aircraft in it?

In the early 80's I was in the navy stationed at Moffett Field California which sets right between Lockheed and Nasa...I dont see how any of the craft mentioned would be seen as a ufo.... but there are a lot of uninformed folks out there....a ufo will difinitly have a non-human trait about it no matter what type you see. you'll know.
