He has the overall shape down to a tee. (of what I would think such a ship would look like) The leading edges do taper down. (I would assume if this
was an actual AV flying around the skies in order to slice through the air using the best aerodynamic design possible) However they're can't be any
blunt edges as he shows on the forward leading edges of his model which would detract not only from the crafts aerodynamic efficiencies (not regarding
lift mind you as Dr. Z thought I was talking about to her in an earlier post) which helps to maintain its stability in crosswinds but its stealth
values as well. (If this AV was an actual AV flying around) The stern of the craft he has shown blunt also. I sum this up to be an optical illusion
that others who may have witnessed this craft see as blunt which he has incorporated into his model. I say this because I do think it is possible that
he has witnessed such a craft. Probably several times. He claims to have been a helicopter pilot for Chevron? Oh and he is an electrical design
draftsmen for heavy aircraft. I mention this because that would be an area that would pertain to, I'll use the B-2 heavy with a similar shape as an
example to point out what I am getting at here using a Wikipedia article.
Quote excerpt "Interest in flying wings was renewed in the 1980s due to their potentially low radar reflection cross-sections. Stealth technology
relies on shapes which only reflect radar waves in certain directions, thus making the aircraft hard to detect unless the radar receiver is at a
specific position relative to the aircraft - a position that changes continuously as the aircraft moves. This approach eventually led to the Northrop
B-2 Spirit stealth bomber. In this case the aerodynamic advantages of the flying wing are not the primary needs. However, modern computer-controlled
fly-by-wire systems allowed for many of the aerodynamic drawbacks of the flying wing to be minimized, making for an efficient and stable long-range
The last line again
"However, modern computer-controlled fly-by-wire systems allowed for many of the aerodynamic drawbacks of the flying wing to be minimized, making for

The engines would be flashing when the computer is responding to its gyroscope data feed. many short afterburner type pulses.
The weird configuration of the patterns he shows underneath the craft could have been the framing for some type of underbelly cargo which possibly had
survey equipment mounted to it. The type mentioned in the link I provided to Z in an earlier post. THIS>
So just maybe if this AV really exists, I bet he had something do with it.
I very much liked listening to it and did so more than once. You truly are my most awesome friend.
