Secret” Military Aircraft Caught On Camera

From whispers of Area 51 to the infamous Roswell cover-up, it’s no secret that the government knows more more about possible “alien visitations” than they let on. Let’s face it, while there are gazillions of fake UFO videos and pictures out there, there are some that are worth a closer look.

And speaking of taking a closer look, this curious picture showed up on our radar this week. Snapped in Texas on March 10, this grainy picture shows a dark, triangular flying object suspected to be a “secret” military plane.

Now, while some have argued over the years that UFO pictures and sightings can be attributed to these secret test flights or black ops projects as well as prototype military aircraft, this mysterious aircraft seen over at Amarillo is definitely curious because it’s unlike anything we’ve ever seen. This suggests that this particular model has never been introduced by the government to the public before.

The series of pictures, featured in Aviation Week, were taken by UFO enthusiast, Steve Douglass and Dean Muskett. Douglass’ shots were done in full color while Muskett’s are in black and white. Douglass believes that the aircraft was manned and was closely followed up by two other similar aircrafts.

“Classified programs have been exposed in all sorts of ways – for example, the A-12 Blackbird was disclosed under a degree of pressure,” said Aviation Week’s Bill Sweetman. “It’s not merely logical to expect that numerous classified aircraft programs exist: it’s almost a necessity.”

One look at this mysterious aircraft and we know that though the size can’t be determined, the contrailing height suggests that it’s definitely  a lot bigger than the X-47B. The basic shape of the object is very similar to Boeing’s Blended Wing Body studies or the Swift Killer Bee/Northrop Grumman Bat unmanned air system.

The mysterious aircraft is accompanied by two others in a formation. It’s doubtful that the government would dispatch three classified, unmanned aircraft anywhere, much more in a formation because the risk of midair collision is present and such thing would be non-career-optimal.

So is it a spy plane? A yet-announced fighter jet model or simply a prototype military aircraft being tested over the Amarillo skies? We don’t know. What we do know is that it’s possible for numerous classified aircraft programs run by the government exist. These new-age aircrafts are taking the skies and pushing the boundaries of aviation technology.
