Rainier. Pretty funny stuff about the birds, however according to a close friend within the military at the time the vehicle as seen by Mr K. Arnold was a German made Gotha Go 229 IX being test flown for radar testing. These high performance aircraft were the same basic flying wing shape as described in his report, and were being tested during the time period. These Go 229 were almost invisible on radar due to the 17 mm plywood skin, and with twin Junkers Jumo 1890 pounds of thrust turbojet engines it was also quite fast. Reichsmarshal Hermann Goring was so impressed he wanted to mass produce these advanced aircraft. This allied information also helped Jack Northrop with his.Amercian designs. The Germans also had an aircraft known as project P-12 with a ram jet, (our own Air Force did the wind tunnel tests after the war). Designed much like our current SR-71 replacment aircraft. But why bother with such old news ? flying wings have been around since the 1930's and the rocket powered versions like the Me 163 B series flew in June of 1943. Invisible aircraft (visual) is also not a new idea, during WW II English heavy aircraft also had a crude systems long before the current fiber optic composite tech arrived. Perhaps we should be more concerned with the several secret bases of black triangle aircraft in Canada being flown by UN forces and paid for by Amercian tax dollars, or what the CIA has been purchasing for 26 Billion dollars ? There seems to be plenty of strange things going on right now don't you think ?
