At 1:45p.m. on August 5, 1992, aUnited Airlines 747 crew reported a near miss with an unknown aircraft as the airliner headed out of Los Angeles International Airport. The airliner was in the vacinity of Georges AFB, California, when the 747's Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) warned the flight crew that an aircraft was approaching at high speed. The unidentified aircraft flew past the 747 about 500-1000 feet below it at high supersonic speed. The UFO was described as having a lifting-body configuration, much like the forward fuselage of an SR-71, and being roughly the size of an F-16. It was speculated that the aircraft was a drone that had "escaped".
It has all the characteristics of a 'carrier' aircraft - but what could it be carrying? The most likely answer is 'Pumpkin Seed' - an unmanned reconnaisance vehicle which would be unable to take off under its own power.

I don’t know. The images look too similar to be different.
the xb-70 has designed to be a highspeed strategic nuclear bomber. it was when the US was rapidly trying to design and build better and faster nuclear bombers.
Brilliant Buzzard, also Known as 'The Mothership' and 'Super XB-70' The Project is believed to be used or used for testing an Airborne Surveillance System.
Apparently the Buzzard was in direct competition with another Surveillance program, the AOA(Airborne Observation Adjunct) or AOS(Airborne Opticle System) The AOS/AOA were extremely secret and officially went into the 'Black Budgets' program due to the sensitivity of the program.
Another name also 'cropped' up during the testing phase of these aircraft. The name 'Blue Eyes' is believed to actually be another name for the Brilliant Buzzard. An Article seen by the public during the initial phases of development and testing said " AOA vs Buzzard/Blue Eyes" stating that in fact like what i mentioned above, the AOA and Buzzard were in direct competition for a Surveillance platform that was going to enter service with the DoD.
