Why automatically conclude that something we don't know is fake? The movements of the camera and the zoom don't look fake. Also the aircraft looks sufficiently different from all the usual "Area 51" stuff to deserve some attention.

The more I watch the video, the more I'm convinced that what we see is a standard transport aircraft (a Lockheed/Alenia Spartan for instance) fitted with long appendices at the back and at the front to simulate the shape of a large missile (presumably for RCS evaluation). I *could* be wrong of course, but if you look at the pic below and the very rough lines I've made out from it, you may see my point.

I took a look at this guy's channel on Youtube... so much laughably fake material. In which case I must agree with Michel Van. This is simply a CG fake.


Just look at this other one...

Experience

Very difficult to make such a thing fly safely (especially takeoff and landing... no angle of attack *at* *all*). But relatively easy to fake up via CGI.

Awesome thread. Pretty dang obvious Thirdphaseofmoon's videos are as much a lie as the infamous cake!

What's the significance, if any, of the pink colour on the track west of Pirat? Or is the colouring added by a bloke at The Drive?

Could be a high altitude test corridor for drones (most probably RQ-170 and RQ-180 type drones). This is entirely speculation however, I haven't read the article, even though I check "The Drive" quite often. I probably skipped to something that was more worthwhile and interesting.


Or you could go ahead and believe the bloke that says this proves the existence of the "Aurora" :D.
