came across this story on yahoo news.
could this be responsible for some of the ufo sightings?
ya i know its still being made,so they say.
so was the stealth bomber when a lot of people were seeing it and calling it a ufo!

An aircraft that resembles a four-point ninja star could go into supersonic mode by simply turning 90 degrees in midair. The unusual "flying wing" concept has won $100,000 in NASA funding to trying becoming a reality for future passenger jet travel.

The U.S. military's B-2 Spirit stealth bomber that debuted in 1989 represents the only previously successful flying wing aircraft, even though experimental flying wings flew before then. Zha's bidirectional flying wing kicks the general concept up a notch by essentially laying two flying wings on top of one another at a 90 degree angle, so that the aircraft faces one way for subsonic flight and rotates another way for supersonic flight.

Anything that's ever been in the sky has at one time been a UFO, as in people couldn't identify it. So it's very possible that what you describe has to be added to that list. A video of this craft would certainly help clarify it and add to the debunk list, such as the lanterns etc. often mistaken as real UFO activity.

your correct!
they didn't have video,just a pic ( i'm an idiot and i cant upload the photo!)
any way it looks like a 'ninja star' and can make 90 degree turns at fast speeds! (sound familiar?)
ya gotta go to yahoo news to check it out. (i'm still an idiot,and can't make the link!)
ya gotta do the leg work yourself. sorry!

That craft is only in a design and concept mode right now; that doesn't mean it hasn't had prototypes that haven't been in the sky as of yet to be mistaken for a UFO. Other super sonic craft has been however, although if they do build this...the few anomalous objects that have stopped and turned 90 degrees will thereafter be associated with this craft.

Nono, you guys have the 90 Degree thing wrong, I have seen/used this concept in a flight simulator.

What it does, is the whole BODY rotates 90 degrees while in flight, keeping in a straight line.

A video might be the best way to describe it, let me see if I can find one.

EDIT: Here we go.
