Supposedly our next super weapon with the same level of secrecy that the stealth bomber received and the SR-71 before that.

If this video is legit, then it's an awesome achievement for mankind, and also explains "Giant Triangle" UFOs that have become semi common place. However, the disappearing act at the end seems fishy to say the least, lol.

Any physicists want to take a stab at howtf something moves like this? Or film graphics students take stabs at it's credibility?

My first thought was......the person holding the camera better be Nick Nolte-drunk or on a boat in rough waters.

Here's what leads me to consider that it's NOT fake...

Recent photos of what people think is aurora taking near Area-51:



The military complex is so tech advanced that it wouldn't surprise me. It'd just be cool if they came clean about it so people stop thinking aliens are here.

Difficult to say, with no frame of reference it looks like it is not moving at all which makes the wing design quite confusing, since wings do not do anything if you are not moving forwards.

It could be as simple as jump jet, like the Harrier, they can do that. For the JSF project, both Lockheed and Boeing developed a version of the jump jet that was supposed to be able to hover as well as land and take off vertically, both succeeded to some extend, but the Harrier is still better. I think it was Boeing that added a huge propeller in the middle that was driven by the jet engine to create lift when hovering and then using small jet nozzles to control the balance, turning and tilting.

I'd tell you, but then I'd have to kill you. The paperwork afterward is just too much hassle.

We do not have any craft capable of Mach 3 or higher anymore.

The race to the moon killed them with the focus on rockets that could lift payloads.

The Sr-71 was designed in the 50's. I thought I read somewhere that they pull one or 2 out of mothballs a year or so ago because we didn't have anything.

There was talk of a hypersonic space plane development back 10 years ago which got as far as the x-43a but that is no bigger than a missle and it's funding got used up.

I hope I am wrong and there is a black project for a hypersonic craft that is either ready to go or close to ready.

I think hypersonic testing will take a back seat again to the Constellation project.

Good question. I thought it was funny that a top secret plane was flying over an inhabited city.

I was thinking about the same, and I know the Marines are actually getting a new fighter that does vertical take offs and lands (no, not the real life transformer the "Osprey")

...but supposedly this thing has a different form of propulsion that makes it silent.

If it is a real then it most like a fan ducted for the hover capability similar to what the JSF is doing and cruise supersonic like the F-22. Fiber Composites over titanium shell would give it the stealth edges.
