Triangle Sighting in Nevada

OK either we need 20 fighter jets to escort a top secret aircraft, or it was an intruder. These large triangles are driving me mad. What are they?

I say top secret military aircraft.

No seriously, I honestly believe this is what the "triangle" sightings always have been.

It's this guy:

Or this one:

Or, by now, some hybrid, modified version of the two, like the TR3B et al:

The latest flavor is larger and appears more angular, but there are plenty of threads here talking about it...

you know, when I was in the marines, (infantry 0331 1/7-2/7 mcagcc 29 palms) there was much talk of a stealth blimp that was capable of carrying entire companies in one trip, from point A to point B using minimal fuel and in perfect stealth in a matter of moments (regardless of where point B was) We never saw this thing but in the desert where nothing is, it was not uncommon for us to see "Triangular things" in the night sky. this technology is either here, or we are really not far from it. Why then is it not being released? well, lets take a look at our economies. Europe, and the US have economies built off things of intrinsic value, petrol, petroleum, gold, silver, diamonds, etc. Petrol is the greatest source of revenue we have.
To understand a government money machine you have to think like one. the philosophy is simple. If it aint broke, dont fix it.

Why is it not released??? For the same reason advanced technologies such as the SR-71 Blackbird, stealth aircraft, etc. were not "released" until years, sometimes decades after they've been operational: To keep the secret technology exclusive to our own MIC and out of the hands and eyes of our real and potential adversaries for as long as possible, to not "play our hand" before it is necessary, to make sure that when it is finally "released" that you already have the next generation -even perhaps two or three generations - of advanced technology already developed, tested, and operational in theatre.

That is all. Only the public citizenry cares about the economy. The MIC have almost limitless funding and spend more than most medium-sized nations - most of it clandestine and acquired and distributed "in-the-black".

Triangles are from a nearby system. They have a pilot a navigator and a weapons officer/political man who speaks english in every fourth one of the ships.They have three lift motors,which is why you see the red frequency at three thrusters in pics and videos.
Those babies do about 7 thousand MPH in space,and 3500 or a little more for short spurts in the atmosphere.
Those babies also have "Bipp" emitters that work off their power coil/capitance system that can take out an airplane from quite a distance away.
As you may have noticed,they are not shot down or do they usually shoot down US turbine birds.
Theres a special reason why. They work on a certain process here.

Well I find this questionable because there are not 20 fighters on stand-by to intercept anything across the whole country at any particular moment in time. It sounds more like he saw a squadron moving out, or performing exercises in formation, and misidentified it. He might have even seen them formed up for mid air refueling with a larger aircraft.

It is quite common to have several escort birds flying in formation with test aircraft - though twenty is a bit high.

Typically, the blacker the project and the more crucial the testing, the more escort craft you'll have along.

On comprehensive tests you'll have at least four to six and up to a dozen at varying distances, with groups assigned specific missions.

For example, in testing a bird like the Aurora, YF-22, or even the TR3, on some flights you'd have fast. maneuverable craft with a wide range of cameras and remote sensing equipment gathering control surface and telemetered data from above, below, on each side, in front, and behind the test bird.

Depending on the the test bird, the flight circumstances and the TCA-neighborhood, you may also take along a few defensive escorts to clear the path in front of the flight path and generally make sure nothing moves in for a closer look or otherwise threatens the operation.

The old Valkyrie test flights were notorious for having many (too many) escorts along - one of which eventually got too close, causing a crash, and ultimately dooming the project all together.

There have been so many of these lately it's rediculous!

I'm not certain what they are or where they come from, but the can sure arrange their lighting patterns to look like airplanes!

These are EVERYWHERE in the world lately.

Check out this video I shot recently!

Your video link didn’t work.
You say they look like airplanes, and there are a lot of them showing up. What makes you think that there are just not a lot more people now misidentifying airplanes as UFO’s? I am extremely experienced with IDing aircraft at night, it used to be part of what I did, and even I can sometimes get fooled for a few seconds. So now we have a lot more laymen out there photographing these things, and often they are nothing more then aircraft misidentifications. The most common reason I hear people claim that lights in the sky are not “aircraft” is because of the lack of sound, and I can tell you that aircraft, especially new aircraft, do not always make sound that is discernable from the observers position.

There is a current space plane being tested by the military, in co-operation with NASA.

I recall reading an article about it.

The X-37B is tiny; it will fit into the cargo bay of the space shuttle.
A picture of it with people working on it for scale:

It is not that design.

The NASA-DoD space plane is quite large.

Nope, that’s it as it currently stands…
From NASA on the NASA-DOD Space plane:

Orbital Space Plane Program
Based largely on existing technologies, the Orbital Space Plane would provide safe, affordable access to the International Space Station. The Orbital Space Plane program is more than a spacecraft. The program will take an integrated systems approach to design the entire space transportation system — including ground operations, space vehicle and all supporting technologies needed to conduct a mission to and from the International Space Station. In addition, flight demonstrators such as the X-37 vehicle will flight test advancing technologies to reduce the risk of future reusable launch vehicle systems including the Orbital Space Plane.

The program will place emphasis in reusable kerosene engine designs and — in concert with Department of Defense initiatives — on a variety of launch system technologies, including development of air-breathing hypersonic propulsion systems.
