The unidentified aircraft that shadowed the Mexican surveillance plane are part of a squadron of new stealth strike craft operating from the U.S.
The aircraft are equipped with special infrared light panels that are only visible to special cameras or night vision gear. The panels are used in
formation flying outside of hostile airspace to prevent the aircraft from colliding with each other or with support aircraft such as refueling planes.
The panels are especially handy during aerial refueling with U.S.A.F. tankers, allowing the tanker operators to visually monitor the stealth planes in
The UFOs were spotted on radar as they approached and tailed the Mexican Air Force surveillance plane. However, F-117A Stealth fighters normally
operate inside the U.S. with special radar reflective panels attached to their planes in order to be tracked in commercial airspace and not attract
The new stealth aircraft, working inside non-hostile airspace, would most likely be similarly equipped with radar reflective devices. The new stealth
aircraft is said to embody the latest technology, including special light panels designed to hide the plane in broad daylight. The Mexican sighting
confirms that the U.S. Air Force possess more than one of the new jets.
