                              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.
