I spoke to a high-level Pentagon source who is intimately familiar with all past and current U.S. hypersonic programs. He said the AURORA line item in the 1986 budget was not an aircraft program at all, but merely a funding line for facilities to support development of the B-2 Advanced Technology Bomber.

It is my considered belief that the "Aurora" aircraft does not exist. It really comes down to a lot of wishful thinking by aircraft enthusiasts.

Based on what I know. What I have seen around Edwards and that people I know I believe the Aurora did exist but who knows if it still does. And owe by the way there is always a reason to keep it from the public.
The SR-71 was doing Mach 3+ in the 70's. We have not advanced beyond that yet? Please don't be ignorant. Take a look around at the Technology the common person has and ask yourself if that is possible.
