This may be the rumored "Desert Prowler". Possibly being used in Afghanistan/Pakistan, and most likely part of the reason for the quick retirement of the 117. Or at least a testament to successful tactical bombing UAV design. It may even have some level of autonomous targeting/tracking ability.
what enemies?..I don't think it's a secret anymore.That was nice of whoever posted that pic to let our enemies know we got that.I'm sure they will be real happy.
That thing is pretty small. Look at the taxiway lights in the background. Those lights usually stand no more than a foot tall.Hard to tell from one picture just what type of aircraft this is. If there were a ground vehicle and/or person close to the plane so we could get an idea of the size it would be nice. If I had to vote for a type of aircraft my vote/best guess would be an Unmanned Stealth Recon Drone, probably undergoing field testing in an actual combat area. If it were big enough it could be a manned Recon aircraft, but since there is no way to get an idea of size, there is no way to really be sure that it is big enough to be manned.
Bankers are worse than AlQueda terrorists? Hmm. Let's check the directly-attributable death rate for each group and then think that claim again.great vid on youtube,its called The Money Masters,its roughly 2hrs on the history of banking starting with the money changers in the temple all the way to current..fantastic vid..
I think it may be misleading, due to the angle and also the fact that somebody probably used a pretty long focal length... It looks pretty compressed. I think when all angles are shown, it might actually turn out to be quite wide. If you look at the Polecat and other past demonstrators, they were short and low, but very wide.That thing is pretty small. Look at the taxiway lights in the background. Those lights usually stand no more than a foot tall.
The U.S. Air Force told Aviation Week that this is a Lockhead Martin RQ-170 Sentinel flow by the 30th Reconnaissance Squadron Tonopah Test Range Nev.
