While snapping pictures of wildlife in Wichita, Kan., a couple months ago, amateur photographer Jeff Templin noticed something strange streaking across the sky. To this day, he’s still not entirely sure what it was.
His photos have since emerged on the Internet — and they are spurring an array of theories. All that is clear is the alleged photo shows a triangle-shaped aircraft with two exhaust nozzles.
“Anyone that was looking up would have seen it. You don’t usually see military or even civilian aircraft’s jets that leave contrails making those kind of severe departures off of the given route,” Templin told KSN-TV. “Absolutely silent, no sound.”
Upon observing the aircraft, he said it made several 180 degree turns, like the shape of an “S.” No, Templin doesn’t believe it was an alien UFO.
Aviation experts told the news station that it could theoretically be a B-2 Bomber, but they couldn’t confirm what it was.
TheAviationist.com has another theory:
Even though we can’t be 100% sure, the above image... doesn’t seem to show a B-2 Spirit, even if the shape can be distorted by reflection, distance, and several other factors.
Provided it is really a new black project, there are several theories about the role of the mysterious triangular/boomerang shaped plane: some believe it could be an RQ-180 stealth drone or, more likely, a prototype of the American next generation LRSB (long range strike bomber).
Here’s the photo of the project the site is talking about:
Now compare that to another image of the unidentified flying object reportedly seen flying over Wichita, only this time it's highlighted to show more detail:
A similar-looking aircraft was also reportedly spotted over Texas in March.
What do you think it is?
