Did you know that the military targets civilian buildings during training? I've seen videos of them targeting someone's yard, and a B-1 recently
"attacked" a school bus yard in Texas. If this is a test, then it would be the same thing here. You find something that matches up to your
operations, in this case a town small enough that they don't have to worry about tall buildings, or lots of air traffic, but big enough that you can
get good training, or a good test in for your system, and you test the hell out of it.
As for why not tell us, it may be something that people would be twitchy about, or it may be something that they don't want criminals to know they
have, so it's easier to just keep quiet about it.
Flightaware, and Flightradar both only track Mode S transponders, so if they fly without using their Mode S, which is easy enough to do, then they
can't be tracked by a website. It's a little frustrating because I'll see something interesting, but my Flightradar app won't tell me anything about
it because it doesn't have the right transponder.
People in the town are also saying there are two aircraft flying overhead. One appears to be N906TM (which is probably a front company for either the
FBI or CIA), and a second aircraft they haven't been able to get a number on.
