I know some people using military tech forums here will be familiar with most or all of these, but this is for the UFO researchers that aren't, and
that might have seen something/eventually see something of a similar shape.
It's not an attempt to explain away all UFO sightings either, just showing that it's likely that several of them could actually be of military drones,
or what are also known as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV's)/Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicles (UCAV's). They're either programmed to carry out
flights/missions, or controlled from another location :
Made by Northrop Grumman and part of a project called J-UCAS. (Joint Unmanned Combat Air Systems) This was a joint U.S. Air Force/Navy project that
was managed by DARPA, (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.) and ran from October 2003 to early 2006, when the program was cancelled in favour
of a long-range bomber project by the Air Force.
The continuation of above, this time with the U.S. NAVY as part of a program called UCAS-D (Unmanned Combat Air System Demonstration). The first
flight test was done on Feb 4th at Edwards Air Force Base in California.
A Lockheed Martin UAV. Unlike the others this is supposed to be a non combat vehicle, and has already been deployed in Afghanistan by the U.S. Air
A UCAV made by BAE Systems. Testing on it started in 2009, but it's been said that it won't start further flight tests until 2012.
Made by Dassault Aviation, along with the co-operation of several european countries. Testing is also scheduled to start in 2012.
So it might be worth remembering some of those shapes, especially with UFO sightings increasing, and especially next year when more of them are due to
fly. And obviously, just because the military tell the press and public they're not currently testing some of these it doesn't mean that they aren't
already for whatever reasons.
