Top Secret Aurora Project

Fri Oct 01, 1999 3:02 am

Does anyone have any idea what the "Aurora Project" is about? I have recently seen a Discovery Channel program on military aircraft.

Any information is greatly appreciated.

It is supposedly the project for the aircraft to replace the SR-71. I've seen hundreds or different made up drawings, and read many pages of information about what it "could" be. Everything is pretty much part educated guess, part imigination.

Like Flyf15 stated, it is a replacement for the SR-71. Very fast, operates very high.

How is it supposed to operate??

Now that Area 51 is abandoned, is it "safe" to snoop around there?
