awalkingecho: I am not as well-educated in hypersonics as I would like but this sounds like an incredible proof-positive accomplishment for flight hardware. Despite the diaper I would need to wear as the flyboy of record I would imagine that is quite the feather in the cap. Kudos to the project.

Wait, why would a plane fly in nautical miles?  Some sort of underwater plane to complement our armada of flying boats?

Nothing about increasing airplane's speed.  I am skeptical.  You can't just believe everything on the internet.


Looks like those aliens abducted his chin.

fusillade762: eyeq360: Silly Subby, everyone knows that we got anti-gravity technology from the alien spaceship crash in Roswell and thanks to the treaty made in 1952 between President Eisenhower and the Grays, they give us technology in exchange for humans to do convert into food and for genetic experiments.
That's just a puny little scramjet.  The Aurora had that back in the early 1990s.

"Bushwah! Now what's your mission? Are you planning to make some kind of alien-human hybrid?"

"Are you coming onto me?"


I'm not hearing a no...

J. Frank Parnell: Awful nice of them to do all their testing in full view of the public.

It's been said before they only reveal obsolete tech this way


You try testing a mach 5 jet in an underground bunker and let us know how that goes.

Which is why they plowed, what, three of them into the Pacific until (yay filterpwnage!) they got it right?
