I will here try to reveal the Aurora project with support by Professional Observers and Radio Experts with both image and sound evidence. This is one of the Top secret UFO cases connected with the S.E.T.I. project. Although it`s not confirmed that such an aircraft exists, many people believe that it does, and this is just one of the many secrets from Area 51. I will try to disprove them that this aircraft do exist. Aurora SR-91 as it was supposed to be named, was a replacement for the aging and expensive SR-71 Blackbird.
Here you can see how BIG the SR-71 Blackbird is
A British Ministry of Defence report from May 2006, released under the Freedom of Information Act, refers to USAF priority plans to produce a Mach 4–8 highly supersonic vehicle. In September 2007,DARPA and the USAF signed a memo of understanding to build a Mach-6 unmanned aircraft called “Blackswift” under the Force Application and Launch from Continental United States (FALCON) program.
It is believed that the Aurora project was canceled due to a shift from spyplanes to high-tech unmanned aerial vehicles and reconnaissance satellites which can do a similar job as a spyplane, but with less risk of casualties or loss of highly expensive, sensitive equipment. On April 23, 2010, the US Air Force carried out a test launch of an unmanned hypersonic glider, the Falcon Hypersonic Technology Vehicle. The Falcon’s reported ability to use sound waves to propel it up to speeds of Mach 20 (20,000km/h) have led aviation insiders to claim it may be the official use of the Aurora’s technology. This also suites well according to witnesses description of the strange sound they heard connected with the Aurora observation`s. Always at night, never photographed, officially denied, sound NOT familiar.
Some witness statement about the Aurora:
August 1989: A former Royal Observer Corps member working on a North Sea gas rig, 100 km off the Norfolk coast spotted a matte-black aircraft refueling from a KC-135, accompanied by two F-111s. The aircraft was “a perfect triangle”, slightly bigger than an F-111. The formation was with the Aurora was heading towards the UK coast. This might have been a prototype of the US Navy A-12 Avenger II, or Northrop’s B-2 bomber, maybe even the TR-3A Black Manta.
March 1990: Aviation Week and Space Technology first broke the news that Aurora was inadvertently released in the 1985 US budget, as an allocation of $455 Million for black aircraft production in FY 1987. This could have been some other black project aircraft`s.
1991: A series of unusual sonic booms were detected in Southern California, beginning in mid to late 1991. On at least five occasions, these sonic booms were recorded by at least 25 of the 220 US Geological Survey sensors across Southern California used to pinpoint earthquake epicenters. The incidents were recorded in June, October, November, and late January 1991. Seismologists estimate that the aircraft were flying at speeds between Mach 3 and 4 and at altitudes of 8 to 10 kilometers. The aircraft’s flight path was in a north-northeast direction, consistent with flight paths to secret test ranges in Nevada. Seismologists say that the sonic booms were characteristic of a smaller vehicle than the 37 meter long shuttle orbiter. Furthermore, neither the shuttle nor NASA’s single SR-71B was operating on the days the booms were registered. It could have been the X-33. Many, numerous other sightings could have been the X-33, the F-117, the B-2 bomber, the TR-3A Black Manta, or other various US government aircraft, both public and secret.

C. Salvo`s pictures of probably Aurora!
Many have written to UFO Casebook for more information on the three photographs above. UFO Casebook have taken the camera’s properties from each photo. The photos came to UFO Casebook named Stormclouds013, 014, and 015. The first two sections are identical on all three. The only difference in the EXIF data is found in the “Advanced Photo” section. Each of the three photos will have this information separate. UFO Casebook have also included the original photographs as they received them. All have been placed in a zip file. Download below:
More sightings : In late August 1989, while working as an engineer on the jack up barge “GSF Galveston Key” in the North Sea, Chris Gibson and another witness saw an unfamiliar isosceles triangle shaped delta aircraft, apparently refueling from a KC-135 Stratotanker and accompanied by a pair of F-111 fighters.
A reader sent me this picture, when i wrote about the Aurora on my previous website. He was a air defence man and said ” I have NEVER seen ANYTHING move so fast” in my 25 years in service!
The BBC interview with Edgar Fouche lasted for 6 hours, but at the end only using about 6 minutes of the footage?
