Would be nice to know more about the way it flew. Hopefully some video turns up. Pretty anorexic article.

Looks like the TR3-A Pumpkinseed:
What's funny about these kinds of threads is I never hear anyone discussing the possibility of any of these advanced craft (many anti gravity and magnetogravitic in nature) being developed by reverse engineering alien craft.
I mean, is it plausible to think that the technology transfer program that's alleged to have occurred between our otherworldly visitors and the U.S. government, along with the reverse engineered claims made by various ufologists and researchers just a ruse to cover up the development of such craft? Why are such bold unsubstantiated claims being made when the excuse can be easily explained by the gov. just stating that this is something we've been working on throughout the past few decades. Is every researcher who has alluded to reverse engineering being the case off his rocker or is there something more to this?
I own a Uniden BCT15x scanning receiver dedicated to receiving and recording communications in the military-aviation UHF band (225 to 399 MHz) which when connected to a PC records everything and saves them as a time-stamped file. It was a simple thing to go into those recordings and search them for any communications possibly related to the sighting.
I found two. One with a three-ship-formation of aircraft checking in with Albuquerque Center on 251.100 MHz and another with the same aircraft checking in with Fort Worth Center on 316.100 MHz.
Call sign: "SIENNA"
On February 21, I posted this radio intercept to my Facebook group of aviation photographers:
"It's frustrating when you monitor something very interesting in your vehicle - but the scanner at home didn't catch it or record it. At approximately 2:39 PM, as I was driving down to pick my grandkids up from school (down in Canyon,Texas ) I heard this conversation on 321.100 MHz on the scanner in my vehicle.
BTW - pardon the language. I'm quoting.
"That's what I'd call an oh-ficial UFO. Unusual-#ing Object. What's it's designation?"
"Can't say over the radio."
"Weirdest #ing airplane I've ever seen."
"Hey - who's the boomer?"
"Mike Sinclair. Why?"
"I thought I recognized that ugly mug. Is he on the frequency?"
"Should be- if he ain't we are in big trouble."
"Hey Mike - what do you think of this #ing thing - ain't it the fugliest thing yet?"
"How'd you rate that? Who's in the back seat?"
"I'd rather not say ... SIGNAL Begins to fade ..... UNINTELLIGIBLE."
"No, we will be your tanker all week ..."
While this was going on - I witnessed two aircraft flying to the west in approximately the same position our mystery aircraft would come from a few weeks later.
Could this have been our mystery aircraft on their way west?
Other questions remain.
Some may ask why they would fly it in broad daylight over Texas? Why wouldn't they use encrypted radio frequencies?
I've always been of the opinion, if they don't want you to see something, you won't.
But let me digress a bit in search of a better answer.
Look at the history of black aircraft and in particular the F-117.
During initial tests it flew only at night, but a number of crashes, one caused by pilot fatigue necessitated the move to daytime test flights. The USAF knew that soon it would be spotted and the cat would be out of the proverbial bag.
But they also knew a aircraft that can't be seen on radar could make a hell of a dent on the USSR's military budget as they struggled to find ways to counter stealth.
Billions of rubles were spent and (as history has proven) the Soviet Union went bankrupt.
It's only recently that other countries have cracked the code for stealth and are building their own stealthy aircraft.
But consider this - there's could also be another reason.
A weapons system isn't a threat to an enemy unless they know it exists.
