Top Secret Mach 6 RS-85 ‘Aurora’ spy-plane

Top Secret Mach 6 RS-85 ‘Aurora’ spy-plane

The United States Air Force operated a “manned strategic reconnaissance aircraft” from 1993 to 2018 according to a press release issued by the Department of Defense today. The type operated under a veil of the strictest secrecy but today its existence was confirmed. 

The Department of Defense admitted it had operated “the fastest aircraft in the world”, to snoop on foreign nations since 1993.

Long rumored in aerospace journalism circles, the aircraft has been described in today’s press release as a “manned strategic reconnaissance aircraft powered by a variable-cycle ramjet capable of operating at speeds and altitudes unobtainable by other aircraft.

This remarkable revelation has raised more questions than answers, including whether the program has been completely shut down.

The release noted, “the aircraft had a top speed exceeding mach 6 and utilized advanced sensors. We can also confirm that it used visual and infra-red light spectrum low observable technology.“—  in layman’s terms a degree of actual invisibility to the human eye or sensors that use light, a technology in its infancy — and until now unknown outside of laboratories. 

According to Pentagon spokesperson Luke Mentira, “The type was known as the RS-85 which grew from Project DOLOS in the early 1980s.

Its declassification is following its withdrawal from service.” A public reveal of the appearance of the aircraft is expected this week.

According to Mentira, “..it looks quite unlike anything else flying and incorporates a high degree of on-wing mission adaptiveness” without qualifying what this meant specifically.

According to long-time aviation researcher and ‘Black projects’ expert Bob Valeta, “This is the most exciting news in the field of aerospace technology that I have ever witnessed – the scope of keeping this classified for so long is mind-boggling. The technologies mentioned are far in advance of anything we guessed at. I am truly amazed.”

The type replaced the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird in the 1990s, an aircraft capable of speeds at over three times the speed of sound.

Until now there has been no official acknowledgment of the RS-85 DOLOS. It is believed that Project DOLOS was an extension of Project Aurora, a 1980s military program that was accidentally mentioned in a budget report, leading to guesses (now proved correct) of a hypersonic spy-plane.

Of the five retired airframes, one has been earmarked for public display at National Museum of the United States Air Force in Dayton, Ohio “..in the 2020 timeframe.

(Hal Turner Comment:   I find it curious that the US Air Force chose today, April Fool's Day, to release this information.  I am wondering if this isn't just some giant April Fool's joke?  The trouble is, it is actually POSSIBLE that this plane exists. )

    Sad situation to ponder, US Gov releases information on a top secret spy project, or conceptualized artwork, yet the full Muller report will never see the light of day.

    "Mentira" is spanish for "a lie."

    The Aurora program developed the TR-3B craft based on alien technology: antigravitic, zero point energy drives, etc. The joke is that the only thing that came out of Aurora is a ramjet aircraft.

    A manned plane at Mach 6 ?
    Sorta hard not to notice that !
    Boom boom :=)

      Did you ever hear or know anyone who heard a SR71 "boom?" They were over Europe many, many times.

        Didn't hear the space station just pass overhead.
        But I would hear the launch within a hundred miles !

          PS
          I live at Shannon USA military Airport, Ireland.
          I hear USA planes every day.

    Lets just assume for a while it exists. Why today, well with the the russians and the chinese spouting off about their latest whiz-bangs, some American voting USA Citizens may be concerned. This might let The USA Citizens know, we can handle that. Just supposition, but what if it is correct. Did the russian intercede with their S300 defensive missile systems in preventing the 2 bombed caves in syria? And I am not even smart enough to know just how smart (capable) President Trump really is. He keeps amazing me! I do know this, He is the Commander and Chief of the the United States Armed Forces.
