A MYSTERIOUS aircraft snapped in a Florida airbase could be the US Air Forces top-secret hypersonic warplane, according to huge claims.
Defence firm Lockheed Martin is understood to be working on a state-of-the-art spy plane for the US Air Force, which could reach over 4,600mph.
Google Earth images have now surfaced of an object bearing a startling similarity to artists impressions of the plane.
The silvery shape was spotted at the end of a runway in the swamplands of the Sunshine State, US.
According to Tyler Glockner who uploaded the clip to his YouTube channel secureteam10 the area belongs to an aerospace company that has a main foothold in designing aircraft engines that are widely used in civilian and military aviation.
That gives us a hint they work with secretive things, he added.
MYSTERY: A strange craft spotted in Florida could be the USAF's secret hypersonic warplane
What youre seeing is a very mysterious object.
I havent been able to find out what this is.
It is no public aircraft that has been disclosed.
You can see that this thing looks like a hypersonic aircraft or spacecraft.
More than 390,000 people have seen the clip and were quick to offer their suggestions.
Definitely seems to match the images of that fast jet, but why would they leave it in the open? one asked.
Another agreed, saying: Not very secret if they're out in the open for anyone to see!
But a third wrote: These look like powerboats, could be something else but there is a massive lake not far away.
It’s a kite.
And a fast one..............
This is either stupidity, or disinformation.
Looks oddly like my secret decoder ring when I was a kid many moons ago.
Or typical British tabloidism..................
That’s barely larger than cars parked nearby.
It’s probably a prototype for use in the wind tunnel.........................
Its painted on the tarmac.
Didn’t the Skunk Works guys used to create models of ridiculous concept planes and leave them out for Soviet satellites to photograph?
Hugo Gernsback would like it.
When the stealth fighter was brand new in the public's mind way back in the early 1990s, I was in the Air Force, and our unit sent a plane to an air show at Mountain Home AFB, and there was a "static display" of a stealth fighter with two armed guards and a roped off area with a shadow painted on the ground. It was just empty space, no plane, but you'd be amazed at the number of folks who came up and thought it was the real deal...
Is roughly twice the length of the white pickup to the bottom left, so it could be 35+ feet long
Yes - if you read the decoded message it says ....
“Drink more Ovaltine”
I doubt any plane traveling at 4,602 mph could be manned.
In fact if the CONOPS calls for that kind of speed it would be foolish to man.
That’s a tow tractor behind it
It’s no powerboat
Not far from Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation.
Looks like a B2B
