I think the number one outstanding question is, why was it so quiet on the first flyover? Makes me think this is some kind of powered glider.
Also, for the idiots who attribute this to an airplane...you must be on drugs or just retarded. I grew up next to an airport and have seen more conventional and military crafts than most civilians put together. My father used to be an Industrial Engineer at Crane (NWSC) so, DON'T insult my intelligence, or worse, your own by making silly comments like...airplane, plane, yada yada yada. I'll just erase your moronic comments and block you from viewing this again. For those of you who cannot tell...I'm sick to death of know-it-all skeptics or debunkers. I eat your type for lunch and its too bad I don't get paid to do it.

This vehicle was more like 1500 feet in the air. Not much more at all.

Nablator, the reason why I posted that info was because of guys like Nightvision. Not for the people who are truly trying to understand the situation. I am willing to accept an analysis like what is occurring, but, when someone immediately makes stabs at me, like many of the comments that have been left on my youtube site as well as the last time I was at ATS, then I take the defensive posture.
Maybe its time for me to let you guys make your own analysis and completely step away from this again. You guys can come up with any conclusion that you choose which is fine by me.
As a matter of fact...I think I have decided to erase all of my videos, as it is no longer important whether my footage gets seen. Friends of mine told me that it was a bad idea from the jump, and now I tend to agree with them. This was something that was meant to stay with me and the friends who got to experience it with me.
Thank you for your time boys...many of you have been awesome.

I really can not accept that it is a B-52.
The 52s stall speed is 147 kts. I referenced the 1994 Fairchild AFB crash, which is horrific in itself.
Mike's craft appears to be much slower & lower in my opinion.

Thanks very much concerning the IR info.
You have been doing some VERY serious homework!
If your intent is to set up a blind to stake out black project aircraft or for what ever other reason (maybe an Area 51 excursion or something) then plexiglass wont be your best bet. One of the reasons I acquired a thermal imager was to learn how to defeat them. Plastics are fairly transparent to a thermal imager. ...
Here is the little known secret to hiding from a thermal imager. Set up in a normal nylon tent. This works because nylon fabric is fairly opaque in the thermal part of the IR spectrum and the only way a thermal imager can see a heat source behind an opaque object is to see the effect the heat source has on that object (either through conductance by contact or from radiant heat). The thing about nylon is that it has a very low thermal density and is porous enough to breath well so that it matches the surrounding air temperature very quickly and the relatively small amount of thermal radiation from occupants has such a neglageble affect that the tent wont stand out against the range of temperatures seen in the background. Add a bit of foliage to the outside of the tent and it will break up the unnatural shape. ...
