Nice photos!!! From which year are photos of Groom taken from air? I mean about this one:
And do you know something about Super Sized F-117? There were some raports from late 1999... rense.com...
Was it flying in and out of Groom?
That photo was in either 2003 or 2004, dont want to get too specific. My first flight out of Edwards was in 2002 and the last one was in 2006.
As for what's flying in and out of there? I won't comment too much on what i've seen until it's been released somewhere. But a supersized F-117? I
doubt it. That was like generation 1 stealth and we don't use faceted diamond shaped aircraft anymore. I would say that of course there are stealth
aircraft being developed and tested during the time frame of that 1999 report. But if you read some of my other posts about the security and crap put
on our aircraft to keep the pilots from seeing what we were refueling, you can venture a guess that I signed several Non-Disclosures during my time.
So what I saw or refueled, if anything, and when I saw it, if ever, will be published here first when it's declassified or known to the public or
internet as fact, if ever...
On that note, I just released info regarding the refueling of UAV's in the NTS. That's because of all the information coming to light from DARPA and
other agencies about UAV's and refueling. If they are releasing information about it, then so am I. I stated elsewhere that the RQ-170 has a
receptacle, and we did air refueling practice with the navy ucav (also the air force version back in the day). By practice I mean that they would come
up to the pre-contact position about fifty feet behind the boom, and see how the bow wave effected them. Another note, the Navy UCAV has both a
receptacle and a probe for refueling.
