I vote for it being a X-45A UCAV rather then a bird of prey. The bird of prey was just to demonstrate a technology the X-45a might be in service in a few years as it is in competition to be the USAFs new UCAV.

Good job getting it on film

U.S. doesnt use spy planes, im pretty sure. There are sattelites today, they dont need spy planes.

wrong!!! i bet you money the Aurora exists, we still use the u2 and the predator is a spyplane, plus sattelites cant always get the job done so we would have to have a spyplane

The lear is a common test bed for avionics, NASA has several as well as the Airforce and several skunk work type manufactures. They use the Lear for "painting" practice since it is cheaper to fly per hour then a military combat aircraft. Jet Turbofan vs AF Burning supersonic engine.

We have the new Global hawk and still fly the U2. Both of which do nothing but spy. Satellites cant do the all the work like the Goverment claimed when they retired the SR-71 the first time around.

But I guess when you are trying to hide your new top secret spy plane its a good cover story.

The DOD does not own any spy planes.

The DOD does admit to owning reconnaissance platforms.


But , no spyplanes

I'm personaly un-impressed. It's obliviously a Boeing X-45a. Hell you can even see the blue paint job.

Also, no offense but you took that pic 450 feet away with a telescope! that must be a bottom of the line scope. I could see it better with binoculars.

Also i thought Nasa was the only people still using the SR-71, for research at high speeds.
