Before anyone gets really waist-deep in this, I would just like to point out that the author here is Nick Cook. As far as I can tell, this is the same Nick Cook who has been kicking around antigravity in Jane's since the mid-90s. He has also written several books which I can only describe as a bit whimsical. I can't give out copyrighted material, but here's a link to a review of one of his books. I recommend reading the article (and book, for the more adventurous) and deciding for yourself whether this is the same guy, and whether he is a trustworthy source of news on the subject.
The Hunt for Zero Point
I'm fairly certain nick was onto something else that actually is real but somehow thought it was anti-grav instead.

The system wouldn't give you any really big changes that you would observe, mainly aerodynamical and stealth properties, could make you glow in the dark though
Sort of, that's what nick stumbled across and thought was anti gravity. There's different types though, so you probably wouldn't register anything on a Geiger counter, but if you could you probably wouldn't be able to get close enough.
There is a propulsion system in use that is not exactly antigravity, but is not what you would see on a normal aircraft. It's in limited use but it's out there.
