                             THERE IS SOMETHING GOING
                           ON IN THE NEVEDA DESERT!!!!!

       The following series  of  messages  is  quoted  from  two  different
       articles in this weeks issue:

                 AVIATION WEEK & SPACE TECHNOLOGY  October 1, 1990

                              FOR FUTURE MILITARY USE

            Advanced secret  aircraft  developed   at   highly   classified
       government facilities in the Nevada desert over the  last decade are
       demonstrating and validating  new technologies for the U.S.'s future
       fighters, bombers and reconnaissance platforms.

            Although facilities in remote  areas of the Southwest have been
       home to classified   vehicles   for   decades,   the    number   and
       sophistication of new aircraft appear to have increased sharply over
       the last 10  years,  when substantial funding was made available for
       "deep black" projects.

            Vehicles now flying from these  well-guarded sites include both
       manned and unmanned hypersonic-capable aircraft designed  to perform
       strategic reconnaissance and   other,  less  conventionally  defined
       missions. The classified fleet also  comprises  a  number  of large-
       winged concept demonstrators that evolved into the  Air  Force's B-2
       bomber and the  Navy's A-12 next-generation attack aircraft. Several
       vehicles, though, appear to incorporate  technologies  that outstrip
       those now employed   by  engineers  charged  with  developing   more
       traditional, current-generation aircraft.

            A number  of these aircraft have been seen and heard repeatedly
       by ground-based and airborne observers  in the western U.S. over the
       last few years. Based on about 45 reports provided by people who

                                      Page 1

       have seen, heard  or  had access to the advanced aircraft, there now
       appear to be at least two - but probably  more  -  distinct types of

            * A triangular-shaped, *quiet* aircraft seen with  a  flight of
              Lockheed F-117A  stealth  fighters  several  times  since the
              summer of 1989. This may be  a  demonstrator  or prototype of
              the General Dynamics/McDonnell Douglas A-12.  Navy  officials
              recently noted  that  full-size  test  models  will  soon  be
              "exposed to  public view"  during  testing,  suggesting  that
              predecessors of the A-12 are already flying.

            * A  high-speed  aircraft characterized by a very  loud,  deep,
              rumbling roar   reminiscent   of   heavy-lift  rockets.  When
              observed at medium altitude, this aircraft type often makes a
              pulsing sound and leaves a  thick,  segmented  smoke trail or
              contrail. Lighting patterns indicate the aircraft  is  on the
              order of  100+  ft.  long,  but  no reliable description of a
              planform has  been  reported   to   Aviation   Week  &  Space

            * A  high-altitude  aircraft  that  crosses the  night  sky  at
              extremely high  speed.  Normally,  *no  engine noise or sonic
              boom is  heard*.  The vehicle  typically  is  observed  as  a
              single, *bright  light*  - sometimes pulsating  -  flying  at
              speeds far  exceeding  other  aircraft  in  the  area, and at
              altitudes estimated to be above 50,000 ft. Such aircraft have
              been reported by both ground-based  and  airborne  observers.
              This may  be the same vehicle as the one characterized  by  a
              loud, pulsing noise when flying at lower altitude and slower

            ...These primary  types  of  "black"  aircraft appear to employ
       relatively conventional propulsion  systems,  although more advanced
       than those available  to  the "white" world. In addition,  there  is
       substantial evidence that another family of craft exists that relies
       on *exotic propulsion  and  aerodynamic schemes not fully understood
       at this time*. Data pertaining to  this  type  of  vehicle are being
       studied by Aviation Week and several consultants.

            The variety  of  highly classified "black world"  aircraft  ha 
       prompted industry experts  to  suggest that the term "Aurora," which
       has been used in reference to a purported  new classified hypersonic
       aircraft, may be  inappropriate.  Instead,  Aurora  may  be  one  of
       several code names,  all  referring  to a class of aircraft designed
       for multiple missions.

            A line item identified as "Aurora" in a Fiscal 1986 Procurement
       Program document dated  Feb.  4, 1985,  supposedly  was  simply  one
       "site" for B-2 bomber funds when that program was highly classified,
       according to a   government  official.  Listed  under   the   "Other
       Aircraft" category, "Aurora"   was   projected  to  receive  sharply
       increased funding. The Fiscal 1986 budget request for Aurora - $80.1
       million - jumped to $2.272 billion in Fiscal 1987, according to the

            Several of the secret aircraft  believed  to be based in Nevada
       may be experimental or prototypes. At least one type has advanced to
       the production and deployment phases, and may be capable of

                                      Page 2

       hypersonic flight, according  to  officials  who  have  been closely
       associated with classified programs  at several Nevada test sites in
       recent years. One senior official said, "We don't really do anything
       strictly for experimental reasons. There's usually an operational
       twist." Several of  these  people  had  hands-on experience  with  a
       number of the classified vehicles.

            Although prevented  from  discussing  specific  projects, these
       individuals said, "There are bigger  and  better  things out there,"
       referring to aircraft based at the Nevada test locations...

            ...Knowledgeable government officials, charged  with  oversight
       and funding of  military programs, however, continue to be extremely
       skeptical of reports  about  secret  hypersonic  aircraft  based  in
       Nevada. One respected official said he is confident that there is no
       such thing as  a  class or family of high-speed aircraft  code-named
       Aurora, either in name or in fact.

            Industry experts  who  have  worked  on  "deep black" programs,
       however, believe that it would be  highly unusual for all but a very
       few political officials  to  have  access to or knowledge  of  these
       programs. History has  shown,  they maintain, that elected officials
       and their staffs are poor security  risks.   Sensitive  information,
       they say, will invariably be leaked through these channels  if it is
       perceived politically advantageous to do so.  *

            The preceeding  article  was  quoted only in part.  It was much
            too long to quote in its entirety.  I suggest that you find the
            Oct. 1, 1990 issue of Aviation  Week  & Space Technology for it
            is a fascinating article. This is the first time they have even
            admitted to any unusual activity at the Nevada test site other
            than earlier sightings of F-177As.

            Be sure to read the next message for another article pertaining
            to the same thing from the same issue.


            Multiple reports from well-qualified observers lend substantial
       credence to the  existence of numerous secret aircraft  flying  from
       remote bases in  the southwestern U.S., regardless of the political,
       funding or technical arguments against that probability.

            Over the past 13 months, large, triangular wing-shaped aircraft
       characterized by a relatively quiet  propulsion system have been the
       objects of at least 11 sightings near Edwards, AFB,  Calif., and one
       near Fresno, Calif.   These  are  supported by additional reports of
       similar vehicles seen  and  heard   around   remote  central  Nevada
       communities near government ranges operated by the  Energy Dept. and
       the Air Force.

            Possibly prototypes  of  concept demonstrators of the Air Force
       B-2 or Navy A-12, the fairly flat, triangular-shaped vehicles have a
       rounded nose, rounded  wingtips   and   probably  no  vertical  tail
       surfaces. The flying  wings' trailing edges may be slightly  curved,
       but definitely are not sawtooth-shaped like those of the Air Force's
       B-2 bomber, according  to  reports received so far.  One ovserver in
       Nevada described the shape as "like a manta ray."

                                      Page 3

            Key sightings include:

            * A  daytime observation near the Tehachapi mountains (about 30
              mi.  northwest of Edwards  AFB)  in  early  May verified this
              craft's triangular  shape.   Numerous earlier  sightings  had
              been at  night,  although several were under a near-full moon
              that provided  enough  illumination   to  identify  a  large,
              triangular planform.  The  Tehachapi report  noted  that  the
              aircraft was  light-colored,  but  had  a  dark area near the
              center of  the  trailing edge,  presumed  to  be  the  engine
              exhaust area.

            * On  the night of May 3, 1990, a quiet aircraft  matching  the
              triangular description   was   reported   by  five  different
              observers over a 4-hr.  period.  One  or more of the aircraft
              made multiple  passes over Tehachapi, Mojave,  Lancaster  and
              Palmdale, Calif., during this time.

            * A   triangular  aircraft  also  has  been  seen  flying  with
              multiple-ship Lockheed F-117A flights. Typically, the stealth
              fighters fly alone, spaced  about 8-10 min. apart - a general
              pattern that  has characterized F-117 operations  since  they
              were first observed in California in mid-1989.

            However, on  several occasions, the larger, traingular aircraft
       appeared on the same general flight path as the F-117As. It was seen
       after about three or four of the  stealth  fighters  had passed, yet
       was ahead of  another three or four. It has been spotted  repeatedly
       over the northern  end  of the Antelope Valley, near Edwards AFB and
       Mojave, Calif., as well as in central Nevada.

            This vehicle is quiter that  the  F-117As  -  which already are
       substantially quieter than an F-15 or F-16 - and definitely  larger.
       It normally displays  a  lighting  pattern similar to that of the F-
       117s - single amber lights under the  wingtips and a red beacon near
       the nose -  but  can  be distinguished by its characteristic  hushed
       engine noise and larger planform.

            All observer descriptions of the triangular aircraft correlated
       closely, and the  observer  who  reported  seeing the vehicle before
       sunset sketched a  top view. That  sketch  matched  descriptions  of
       similar vehicles supposedly seen in Nevada-based government  hangars
       several years ago and flying in military operating areas nearby...

            ...A totally  separate,  distinctly  different type of aircraft
       seen and heard  in California and  Nevada  over  the  last  year  is
       characterized by a loud, very deep, rumbling engine noise, At times,
       the exhaust noise is punctuated by a slow-frequency  (about  1  Hz.)
       pulsing sound, which  has  prompted  observers to call this aircraft
       the "pulser." The aircraft also produces a sausage-link-shaped smoke
       trail or vapor contrail when it is pulsing. This vehicle is not
       the triangular-shaped aircraft discussed earlier, and may be capable
       of hypersonic speeds.

            At other  times,  however,   the   aircraft   exhibits  a  more
       continuous noise without the pulsing characteristic.  Observers  are
       confident it is  the same type of aircraft, based on its distinctive
       deep, loud roar.

                                      Page 4

            There have   been   multiple   reports   of  "pulser"  flights,

            * The first, in July, 1989, at  about  3 a.m. near Edwards AFB,
              Calif. The vehicle was at medium altitude, flying  very  fast
              and exhibiting   the   characteristic   pulsing   sound.  The
              "pulser's" position was marked by a *white glow*, rather than
              a distinct point of light.

            * An early evening takeoff from Edwards AFB on Oct. 18, 1989.

            * Multiple reports of an aircraft  having  a deep, pulsing roar
              flying over  central  and  eastern  Nevada during  the  early
              morning hours throughout the past year.

            * Eight separate reports of an aircraft exhibiting the same
              characteristics, always  flying  on  a northerly heading near
              Mojave, Calif., between midnight  and  about  5  a.m.  It was
              typically at lower altitude and slower speeds than when first
              seen in July, often had a slower pulsing sound  and displayed
              only two position lights.

            * Six  reports  of an extremely fast-moving vehicle in southern
              California's skies, ranging from Santa Barbara on the Pacific
              coastline to near George  AFB  at  the  eastern  end  of  the
              Antelope Valley. These aircraft typically were flying at very
              high altitude,  were  seen  as a *single bright  light*,  and
              seldom changed  direction.  Speed changes have been observed,
              and, on occasion, a pulsing  red  or  white  light  was seen.
              Whether these  so-called  fast movers also are  the  "pulser"
              aircraft is not known.

            A Santa  Barbara  observer estimated the aircraft crossed "some
       350 mi. of night sky off the Pacific  Missile Range bases in about 6
       min." (about 3450 mph!) One Aviation Week & Space Technology  editor
       estimated a similar aircraft - seen as a bright point of white light
       - required less than 20 sec.  to transit about 70 deg. of sky...

            ...On Oct.  18,  1989,  the  "pulser"  apparently took off from
       North Base, an airfield at the north  end of the Edwards AFB complex
       primarily devoted to  classified  programs.  The   noise  from  that
       takeoff was described as extremely loud, with a deep, throaty rumble
       that shook houses  16  mi.  away, drawing residents into the street.
       One observer claimed the noise compared with that of Saturn 5 rocket
       tests conducted at Edwards AFB in the 1960s and 1970s.

            Although no  lights  were  seen,   the   deep,  vibrating  roar
       continued for about 5 min., and its source appeared  to  be climbing
       steeply to the  north.   "Your  eyes  tended  to  follow  the noise;
       something was climbing at a very steep  angle,"  one observer noted.
       Residents of surrounding communities reported that  the  sound  "was
       like the sky ripping," and was unlike anything they had heard in the
       Edwards area for years.

            The same  pulsing, very loud, rumbling type of engine noise has
       been reported by multiple observers  in  central  Nevada as well. It
       typically was heard in the early morning hours and  was described as
       having a 1-2 Hz. pulse rate. One Nevada-based observer said tha same
       pulsing aircraft departed from the Groom Lake range and flew over a

                                      Page 5

       nearby community as  recently  as  Aug. 6. It was "the loudest thing
       I've ever heard. It wasn't breaking  the  sound  barrier, but it was
       rattling the window!" *

            An interesting note: one of the drawings accompanying the text
            shows the object as a very rounded triangular shape glowing

            Again, this  was  only  part of the article. I'll  be  watching
            future issues  of  Aviation  Week  &  Space  Technology for any
            updates.  They are justifiably very reluctant to speculate very
            much on things of this nature.  I'm sure you're aware that Phil
            Klass is a contributing editor to the magazine.
