It's an artifact of a crappy video camera in the hands of someone who is shaking the camera a lot.
There is no such thing as either an invisible plane or cloaking capacity to cloak a plane. It's a bunch of crappy cameras taking pictures without tripods or "good" lenses beyond a camera's zoom capacity. You don't see all planes because they become "lost" in the sky. It's known as Rayleigh Scattering. It's why the sky is blue, too. You do know the what the sky is made of is not really blue, right? It's because of light scattering, absorbing, and refracting through a lens. Most airliners are white or silver underneath. They reflect the blue sky, "disappearing."
The clue is the pixelating of the area. The "effect" is shown within really large pixels. If it was a "hologram" or "cloaking" kind of thing, they would'nt use an image which would have such large pixels. It's the pixels from the camera itself, therefore a camera artifact, not something "real".edit on 17-11-2010 by stars15k because: clarity.
