Planespotters in Texas and now Kansas have recently been seeing some very unusual looking aircraft overhead. The shape of these high flying mystery jets is similar too, but NOT the same as, the B-2 Spirit bomber, better known as the Stealth Bomber.
These sightings have, of course, cranked up the rumors and theories.
The triangular shape certainly calls to mind one of the biggest procurement failures of the latter half of the 20th Century, the Navy’s failed A-12 Avenger II program.
The A-12, planned successor to the fabled A-6 Intruder attack aircraft, was eventually cancelled before the first was ever built due to staggering cost overruns and the massive weight gain of the design.
But you can see from the picture above, the triangular shape of the mystery jet is certainly very, very similar to the A-12.
Who knows if the jet over Texas is manned or a drone, or what?
What say you?
