(Feb. 11) -- The world's most advanced warplane, the F-22 Raptor, will be coming to Nellis Air Force base later this year for operations testing. But could there be other miracle machines flying in Nevada skies?
Nevada has been a favorite location in past years for the testing of super-secret aircraft, and now some witnesses say there are new mystery planes cruising over our heads.
To the untrained eye, the view of the F-22 Raptor tearing across the sky might look like something weird, even otherworldly. That wouldn't be unusual in Nevada. It was here the first U-2s were flown, the first SR-71 Blackbirds, the first Stealth Fighters and Stealth Bombers.
Witnesses from the edges of Nevada military ranges have reported seeing some unusual aircraft over the past few years. "Nearly everyone up here has seen something," one resident said.
One craft that's been seen in the vicinity of the secret Groom Lake military base looks just like the Stealth fighter, except it's bigger. Chuck Clark is an inveterate sky watcher and saw one last year.
"I saw it going west to east across the Valley, 1,000 feet above the ground," Clark said. "It had a chase plane, an F-15. The F-15 was markedly smaller."
In reality, an F-15 and F-117 are nearly identical in size. Prominent aviation writers say they've heard rumors about a so-called super size stealth fighter, but the program has not been confirmed. Such a plane would be valuable because it could carry more bombs than the stealth we know today. Clark figures the military wanted to show it off "by flying it across the Valley in broad daylight. They can't have a press conference since they don't exist."
Clark and others have also reported seeing so-called black triangles in the area around Groom Lake, both on the ground and in the air. Similar reports have come in from all over the country, including a case from Illinois in January 2000. Witnesses, including four police officers, saw large black objects flying at low levels, emitting no sound. Some said it was triangular; others, rectangular. The incident was investigated by Las Vegas based National Institute for Discovery Science, (NIDS), which now has received many similar reports.
Colm Kelleher of the NIDS said: "We've had reports from all over the country, about 200 of the same thing, large wedge-shaped or arrow-shaped triangle phenomena. Witnesses run because it's flying so low, they think it might fly into them."
There have been scattered reports that the military might want to develop a huge lighter-than-air ship to be used for quiet transportation of men and machines. NIDS put the black triangle reports on a map and compared them with flight paths of certain Air Force bases to see if there was a connection -- there was.
"The location of the sightings lined up remarkably with the flight path between Air Force bases," Kelleher said.
Meaning, the black triangles could be secret craft not yet admitted by the Pentagon. Others could also be in the works.
Witnesses around the country have seen what they guessed to be the Aurora, a super-speed successor to the SR71. Other things in the sky are thought to be unmanned craft like the Predator or the rumored Black Manta spy plane. And maybe in 10 or 15 years, the military will let us know what they are.
