The Freedom of Information Act is wonderful when it comes to unexplained
reports of extraterrestrial visits. The Federation of American Scientists, a
Washington-based science advocacy group, recently discovered through the
Freedom of Information Act that reports of UFO activity also corresponded
with the flights of top-secret American spy aircraft.
In the 1960s, the Central Intelligence Agency and the U.S. Air Force
worked very hard to generate UFO cover stories for secret aircraft. The
result was a hysterical joke on the world that echoes through to this day.
Keep in mind; this was during the height of the Cold War when the USA and
USSR were on the verge of nuclear combat. The aircraft involved were
certainly alien with their incredible performance. The silver long-winged
U-2 aircraft could fly 14 miles high and stay aloft for hours, while the
blackened, delta-shaped SR-71 could fly even higher at speeds exceeding
2,000 miles an hour.
Flying a UFO can also be hazardous to your health. Brave U-2 and SR-71
crews flew mission after mission over Russia, China, Cuba, Israel, Germany,
Korea, Vietnam and other hot global spots. Most came home safe. Some lost
their lives. Many veterans still suffer today from the long-term effects of
space flight in the early, unshielded aircraft.
Today, the SR-71 Blackbird has been retired, relegated to the history
books and removed from active service. The highflying U-2 lives on in an
improved version called the TR-1. Yet, there are rumors of even more exotic
vehicles that still await the first public viewing. The stories of UFOs and
UFO-like performance continue to persist, along with missing billions in the
world of black projects.
The first rumors of a follow-on aircraft to the Blackbird came at the end
of the Cold War. Reports of a highflying aircraft using the call sign
“Stove-pipe” became the now-legendary “Aurora” project. Although, never
publicly confirmed to exist, Aurora has been sighted and photographed
escorting U.S. strike aircraft.
The large diamond shaped aircraft is reported to be capable of exceeding
8,000 miles an hour and was originally designed to attack Moscow with
nuclear bombs. Aurora’s extreme performance does not come cheap. Aurora is
also reported to be more expensive than a Space Shuttle.
Some of the experimental U.S. aircraft tested during the Cold War
obtained their performance using propulsion systems driven with volatile and
dangerous fuels. One secret U.S. project included an atomic ramjet. The
deadly engine, a radioactive ramjet, heated air in the radioactive core of a
miniature atomic reactor. The atomic jet engine was developed to fly a giant
missile carrying a multi-megaton thermonuclear bomb deep into the Soviet
Union. The atomic ramjet was never deployed but U.S. nuclear engineers did
successfully test the lethal radioactive engine in the open desert air
before the project was finally canceled.
How about an invisible airplane? Stealth aircraft such as the B-2 and the
F-117A are not new. It is well known that the B-2 and F-117A are practically
invisible to radar but the aircraft themselves can be seen. One reported
robot plane project was also nearly invisible to the naked eye in broad
Ironically, the concept is not new. In the 1940s, the U.S. Navy developed
operation “Yahootie” the first practical attempt to create an invisible
aircraft. U.S. Navy bombers were considered too slow to visually spot a
German U-boat cruising on the surface and attack in daylight. Submarine
commanders often spotted the lumbering bombers and dove safely away before
the planes could attack.
In response, a string of bright lights were arrayed on the wings and
propeller hubs of the sub-hunter planes. The bomber crews adjusted the
lights to match the natural background light behind the aircraft, masking
itself against the sky. The so-called “isoluminous” principle is based upon
the perception that different objects displaying the same brightness seem
indistinguishable from each other. The principle worked very well until
1942, when the Navy introduced airborne radar, allowing bombers to spot and
kill submarines beyond visual ranges.
Yahootie returns? An advanced version of Yahootie, a robot driven
surveillance aircraft is reported to use a combination of lights, low noise
engines, and radar absorbing skin to render itself practically invisible in
daylight. The robot aircraft is not only invisible to radar but its skin is
layered with an array of high intensity lights that broadcast the same
output as the sky around it.
Still, what good is an invisible flying saucer without a ray gun? The
USAF is already working on the ABL or “Airborne Laser” project. The concept
is simple; mate a Boeing 747 with the most powerful laser the huge airliner
can carry. The result, according to the Air Force, is a plane that can knock
down hostile ballistic missiles from hundreds of miles away.
The ABL project is well under way toward an early test and looks very
promising. So promising that, according to Aviation Week and Space
Technology, the Russians have demanded they be allowed
to fly on-board any active ABL 747 to make sure it does not target Russian
missiles, in violation of the SALT treaties. Russia has also been working
for many years on laser projects. The
Agency recently made public drawings of Russian anti-satellite and anti-missile laser systems in test.

However, it appears the U.S. Air Force is not too worried about the Russians. Instead, the Air Force is keeping a budgetary laser eye focused on the U.S. Marine Corps. The U.S. Marines, ever quick to catch on, have proposed arming the new Joint Strike Fighter with a laser weapon. The Air Force views the Marine concept as a threat to the ABL budget.
It would seem that the only hostile actions between blue and green are not extraterrestrials doing battle for control of the earth, but military officers inside the Pentagon fighting over budget figures. We know more about Mars than the black accounts inside the Pentagon books. I am here to assure you there are no UFOs; it’s all a Hollywood fantasy and a CIA conspiracy.
So, The next time you see a UFO, don’t look up; it’s one of ours.
