    Mac and another close by base. Don't think Macs the only place in western Scotland to hold deep black secrets.

    Very, very interesting sir!

    Something superquiet and superfast, hmm who would do such thing?

    Lab coat types in the US and UK having a little fun.

    I'm wondering if there is any way to get a rough estimate on size?

    Interesting post! Let's hope you don't get a knock on the door from Men in Black!

    Do you think it is the same aircraft over the whole period, or an evolution of that aircraft? I would have thought that obsolescence creeps in rather quickly with these sorts of hush-hush machines.

    Rocketengine might be an Aerospike. Have you considered this possibility. If so it could possibly be exo-atmospheric, as that generally was what aerospike research was focussed on. Though a low rumbling sound and the speeds you say these things haul at, it could also be a type of high frequency pulsejet.

    its still very much in use, still using scotland ad a stop over. Is it an updated version / variant? Yes. I say yes because pre 1995 sightings don't have the very distinct thermal protective shell mentioned.

    RS - i cannot get close enough for certain but the brightness, roaring deep rumbling sensation felt like a rocket launch starting up. However thats purely my speculation and feelings. What it really is? Idk.

    The problem is, why do they keep it secret.
    A stealthy hypersonic aircraft wouldn't be such an earth-shattering revelation, it is not like aliens or something.

    im sure they will decide to show us when they see fit. However it is the potential materials, engines and mission they want hidden. As for it being vlo? Doubt it highly indeed unless they really have the nanomaterial breakthrough of the decade hidden some where.

    Also, what about the Russians?
    Or the Chinese?
    At least the Russians definitely have the technology to detect this, especially if it isn't VLO.
    The huge russian phased array antimissile radars surely can detect something with this flight envelope.

    Wouldn't this thing have a massive thermal wake? The Blackbird had this issue, granted this was a long time ago and technology has advanced, but traveling at mach 6 or thereabout is sure to create some friction. I don't know if it is massively useful as a spyplane if it does indeed generate a significant radar/thermal signature. Like with the blackbird, the USAF/CIA eventually figured out that high and fast was being outpaced by countering technologies, and the cold war era, where the great powers of the world took it for granted they were spying upon is over, and I don't think the powers that be behind this stuff generally want to advertise they're snooping in on the other guy's family valuables. It being a research platform for manned hypersonics is a definite possibility.
