LOCKHEED X-22A ANTI-GRAVITY FIGHTER DISC The Lockheed X-22A antigravity fighter disc fleet, equipped with Neutral Particle Beam directed-energy weapons, and capable of effecting optical as well as radar invisibility, is deployed for worldwide military operations from the new U.S. Space Warfare Headquarters. A-17 EXPERIMENTAL STEALTH FIGHTER Generally regarded as a fourth generation low-observable design, the A-17 is believed to have evolved from the YF-23 Advanced Tactical Fighter, and will replace the F-111 Fighter Bomber. The YF-23 lost out to Lockheed's F-22, but it's technology could easily be adapted for use on other projects. No positively-identifiable white world pictures exist of the plane, but sightings have been reported at RAF Boscombe Down in the UK, and Cannon AFB, New Mexico. THE SUPER VALKYRIE HYPERSONIC BOMBER/SPACEPLANE Operating under the mysterious Aurora Project, the system is believed to comprise a spaceplane roughly the size of an SR-71 spyplane and a hypersonic launch vehicle resembling the experimental XB-70A strategic bomber designd in 1957-60. This large aircraft could perform a number of roles, but it appears to have been designed specifically to carry the smaller spaceplane to a suitable launch altitude. AURORA HYPERSONIC SPYPLANE Does the United States Air Force or one of America's intelligence agencies have a secret hypersonic aircraft capable of a Mach 6 performance? Immediately recognisable by the pure delta triangle airframe and the Donuts-On-A-Rope contrails, this aircraft is rumoured to conduct regular flights to the secret "Black" space stations orbiting the Earth. RELATED PAGES THE AMERICAN BLACK TRIANGLE - A REPORT FOR UFO MAGAZINE AURORA CAUGHT ON VIDEO? HEADING TOWARDS GROOM LAKE? - LOS ANGELES SONIC BOOMS CHRIS GIBSON'S NORTH SEA 'AURORA' SIGHTING X-15 ROCKETPLANE (USAF PROJECT MX-1226) Late in the year of 1954, the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) issued a requirement for an air-launched manned research vehicle with a maximum speed of more than Mach 6 and a maximum altitude of more than fifty miles. North American Aviation Incorporated was awarded the contract for the new research vehicle, the X-15 Rocketplane. F-117A NIGHTHAWK STEALTH FIGHTER The F-117A Nighthawk is the world's first operational aircraft designed to exploit low-observable stealth technology. The unique design of the single-seat F-117A provides exceptional combat capabilities. About the size of an F-15 Eagle, the twin-engine aircraft has quadruple redundant fly-by-wire flight controls. Air refuelable, it supports worldwide commitments and adds to the deterrent strength of the U.S. military forces. F-22 ADVANCED STEALTH TACTICAL FIGHTER The Lockheed-Martin F-22 Raptor represents the greatest advance in fighter-aircraft capability in 50 years. It brings the largest increase in sustained speed since the advent of the jet, flying most of its missions at speeds other fighters can only attain for short periods. The F-22 Raptor can also, using its advanced thrust-vectoring system and supercruise capability, accelerate and maneuver at speeds today's fighter jets struggle to maintain in a straight line. [lrec] U-2 RECONNAISSANCE AIRCRAFT The U-2 provides continuous day or night, high-altitude, all-weather, stand-off surveillance of an area in direct support of U.S. and allied ground and air forces. It provides critical intelligence to decision makers through all phases of conflict, including peacetime indications and warnings, crises, low-intensity conflict and large-scale hostilities. B-1B LANCER SUPERSONIC BOMBER The B-1B is a long-range strategic bomber, capable of flying intercontinental missions without refueling, then penetrating present and future sophisticated enemy defenses. It can perform a variety of missions, including that of a conventional weapons carrier for theater operations. B-2 ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY STEALTH BOMBER The USAF/Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirit stealth bomber is a strategic, long-range heavy bomber. Its low-observable stealth technology and all-altitude operational envelope give it the capability to penetrate the most sophisticated air defenses. Developed under extreme secrecy at Area 51, this aircraft is suspected of having electro-gravitic propulsion technologies and capable of space travel. RAH-66 COMANCHE STEALTH HELICOPTER The Boeing Sikorsky RAH-66 Comanche is the world's most advanced helicopter and the cornerstone of the U.S. Army's Force XXI aviation modernization plan. The Comanche makes use of the latest advancements in aerospace technology, including stealth which has until now been confined to airplanes. The futuristic propulsion and navigation design also allows the helicopter to execute snap turns in 4.5 seconds and fly sideways or backwards at an incredible 70 mph! THE FDL-5 PROJECT During the early 1960s, the USAF Flight Dynamics Laboratory (FDL) devised new and unconventional shapes for hypersonic vehicles. The shapes - FDL-5, FDL-6, FDL-7 and FDL-8 - were designed with the intention of sustained hypersonic flight (both gliding and powered) and re-entry. NASA'S HYPER-X PROJECT AND THE X-43A Hyper-X is an experimental flight-research program seeking to demonstrate airframe-integrated, "air-breathing" engine technologies that promise to increase payload capacity for future vehicles, including hypersonic aircraft (faster than Mach 5) and reusable space launchers. The test vehicle for the project is designated the X-43A. This multiyear program is currently underway at NASA Dryden Flight Research Center, Edwards, California. LIGHTCRAFT - PROTOTYPE LASER PROPELLED SPACECRAFT Originally intended as a Strategic Defense Initiative microsatellite, the craft was propelled by a ground-based 10kw Textron high-energy, pulsed carbon-dioxide, infra-red laser. It is designed to convert kilojoule pulses of laser energy, focused at ten times a second onto a parabolic mirror at its base, into propulsive thrust. An operational Lightcraft, with on-board propellant, would fly to Mach 5 on an air-breathing engine then shift to laser-propelled rocket mode. SNOWBIRD EXPERIMENTAL STEALTH AIRCRAFT This almost unknown design may be a prototype UAV or perhaps a preliminary testbed for a larger aircraft. Utilising stealth characteristics of a very advanced design, could this be the next generation stealth fighter? SR-71 BLACKBIRD SUPERSONIC SPYPLANE The Blackbird, code-named Oxcart during its development, flies on a tremendous 65,000 lbs. of thrust at an altitude of 100,000+ feet at Mach 3.5, and has a range of four thousand miles. That is not only four times faster than the U-2 but seven miles higher - and the U-2 was then the current high-altitude champion. TACIT BLUE STEALTH AIRCRAFT The US Air Force, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, and Northrop Corp. teamed up for the TACIT BLUE Technology Demonstration Program from 1978 to 1985. TACIT BLUE validated a number of innovative stealth technology advances. Most notably, it was the first aircraft to demonstrate a low radar cross section using curved surfaces, along with a low probability of intercept radar and data link.

This is all very impressive.

No firefighing airplanes?

All just kill kill kill eh?

ahahahahahahahahahahahaha

Where are your priorities, silly fella?

we see aircraft we thought were ufo,s up here in alaska for years.comming out of the harding ice fields out of seward ak.exit glacier area.we have also found ground monitering realy stations in the bush here powered by solar pannels with wires going into the ground and up into the trees..we have photos of this..it says property of nasa jet propulsion labatories pasidena calif..found it when hunting in the bush funny indeed all thease /ufo,s were seeing we now thing they are govt expermental craft some large ,,,lot of smaller craft..even seen missle shot at the craft when we reported it we were told that alaska defense forces missle command were deployed in that area on manuvers.how ever we saw the ufo/military exp craft take the missel hit then just fly away .

Is there anything non-American you would like us to discuss, on the off chance? 17 topics there, all America...

Are you serious? Not even a non American aircraft topic in that list?

Well, that is dissapointing.
