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. [Supersonic Biplane Design Stops Sonic Booms]
