dont know bro, I live 30 miles from S'ville. There is a MTR (Military Training Route) over our house, and a MOA (Military Operational Area) to the west. There are jets over our house almost everyday and night. People should be used to it. One report was by an old timer that has been a pilot for 30 years. Once you have been around jets that long you know what to look for. He says "No way those were f16's". But there has been a high amount of traffic lately. Makes me wonder if they might be testing something out there. Lockheed is based in Ft.Worth, and lately on my way home I have been seeing some "strange" aircraft taking off outta there. A 707 AWACS with an odd (non-military) paint scheme, a modified 737, etc....

The exit path of what we saw was verticle. Adding to the fact we were amazed how fast it vanished. It all happened too fast for me to even describe it's shape. The person I was w/ got a little better look and he thought it was wedge shaped.

I would suspect all the crazy stuff people see is legit, but probably our military testing new goodies!

I think we would be foolish to not realize the govt. has so much more than we would think possible. I had a uncle who was high up in the Air Force. He couldn't talk for 25 years, when he could he was talking about things just appearing like the Harrier and other things he knew and could legally mention but hadn't broke yet, so he didn't have the comfort to talk. That was 30 years ago, imagine the advances in tech. and how much faster things develop now vs. then

The U2 Spyplane in the 60's had 1 meter resolution at 80'000 ft. What does this mean, it could tell you the brand of golfball you were hitting. This was in the 60's. Watch the movie DejaVu, with Denzel Washington. This will get you thinking.

it was just a weather balloon.............


737 AWACS? Hmmmmmmmmm

Sure it wasn't a 767? Japanese fly those,

I guess the Aussies have a 37 AWACS, did it look like this? http://www.defencetalk.com/pictures/data/3449/medium/Austrilia_12306.jpg

The Navy is getting 737s to replace P-3s but I don't think they (E-8 Posiedon) have radomes like the AWACS and I'm not sure they even have one flying yet (that they'll admit to)

I doubt it was anything good, most stuff that Uncle Sugar wants to keep secret, stays secret.

No that is a wedge tail. We dont fly those. This was a 707 AWACS with a wierd paint scheme. The 737 was modified with canards and an f35 cockpit on the front for avionics testing. It was pretty wierd looking. I'll try to post a pic of it tomorrow.

The last one's tail looks familiar. But the one I saw didn't look that well kept. Dont remember the writing on the side of the fuse either. It was low, maybe 500-700 AGL. It definately had the turbojets on it as it was smoking pretty good. It may have been that one or one similar. Dont think the radar had black on it, because I couldnt tell if it was turning or not. Most likely not over a populated area. I can tell you there has been some funky stuff going on around here with the military. Reminds me of post 911 wierdness I saw.

I have a friend that works with ATK, I'll have to ask him about itthe next time I see him

The frisbee spins to keep the bearings from getting flat spots due to vibration, just because it's spinning doesn't mean it's transmitting

Yea but that is a pretty powerful radar.....ie "smoked almonds", so that low in population I would have to say no TX, but ya never know.

Not sure how the USAF does it but when we did a "live fire" in NATO we parked the jet at the approach end of the runway, steered the beam down the runway and pointed it up

we did this mabye twice in three years

One half of the black is radar, the other is IFF

Well, I believe in the soul, the %$#@ the %&*@#, the small of a woman's back, the hanging curve ball, high fiber, good scotch, that the novels of Susan Sontag are self-indulgent, overrated crap. I believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days.
