Hidden 'Alien Tech' UFO Spotted on Air Force Base in Florida
We Floridians are a stubborn lot. With a year-round outdoor lifestyle that few other states can match and a sun-kissed climate that earns the envy of those with seasonal effective disorder across the nation, most of us are quite happy living in our own reality.
That's what makes it so difficult to parse truth from delusion when dealing with a Floridian UFO sighting. Granted, this sighting wasn't actually in-person or even of an object in flight, but rather a YouTube video of a view captured by Google Earth. The view focuses on what looks an awful lot like a stationary craft of unknown origin outside aerospace company Pratt & Whitney, which develops engines for projects of both a civilian and military nature.
Pratt & Whitney has attracted the UFO community's curiosity in recent years, since announcing a $63 million expansion of its Florida site in 2014. "This new facility will help produce some of the most innovative and revolutionary engines the aerospace industry has ever seen," P&W President Paul Adams said of the expansion.
Suffice to say, both the truther and the skeptic communities have sounded off on this video, which shows what appears to be a diamond-shaped craft.
Scott C Waring of Ufosightingsdaily.com noted the craft's similarities to The Northrop Grumman X-47B, an unmanned combat plane designed for use with aircraft carrier-based missions, but nonetheless concluded what he saw was a whole new iteration of the craft. "This is alien tech in the US military's hands," he wrote.
Adding to the chorus of Scotts, debunker Scott Brando has a much less fantastical explanation. "That object could be an RCS model (radar cross section) for testing engine or exhaust nozzles at an RCS range," he said. RCS, or radar cross-section ranges, track how likely an object is to be detected on radar.
Meanwhile, other tabloids think that this footage might actually be a secretive hypersonic warplane currently being tested by the USAF that Lockheed Martin is said to be manufacturing, capable of reaching over 4,600 mph. If that's the case, we've really got to get some better airborne security measures in place.
While we assume that either reality might still be possible, it's worth noting that Lockheed Martin's tech has reached such spectacular levels of realization over the last year that they've already left the realm of science fiction. They've recently been awarded a $26.3 million contract to produce planes capable of firing lasers, and are among the many hands tasked with building NASA's deep space gateway, too.
They also just revealed plans to step up the search for life on Mars using A.I, and unveiled their spacecraft built for Mars basecamp missions. All of a sudden that craft doesn't sound so fantastical anymore, does it?
