Airliners And F-15s Involved In Bizarre Encounter With Mystery Aircraft Over Oregon - UPDATE

The FAA, the USAF, and air traffic control recordings all confirm the bizarre event did indeed occur last October. BY TYLER ROGOWAYNOVEMBER 15, 2017
Amongst all the questions that remain, one thing is certain, an unidentified white aircraft was indeed flying over Oregon on that day in October, and the USAF and the FAA are both willing to admit that the event occurred. In the Air Force's case, the fact that they are even willing to tell us that they couldn't catch or even find the unidentified aircraft with their sensor-packed and fast F-15s is interesting to say the least. On the other hand they may not be sharing the entire story with us.

Whatever the case, we'll keep you updated on this white flying mystery machine of sorts and the circumstances surrounding its presence over Oregon when, or should I say if, new information becomes available.

UPDATE: When I first posted the story of the “UFO” sighting last month, I got this response from a friend who used to work for Lockheed many years ago:
The Skunk Works is at it again! When the first models of what became the SR-71 started flying, there were all kinds of "UFO" sightings. It flew higher and faster than anyone could imagine. We probably will never know how fast it could go.”
I had no idea what this meant and asked him…wow, what a great, insider story of secret goings on at a major U.S. aerospace company (founded in 1912 and later merged with Martin Marietta in 1995 to become Lockheed Martin)!! So here’s the rest of the story:
The Skunk Works is a super secret design and manufacturing part of Lockheed. When I worked for Lockheed, Kelly Johnson ran the organization and they produced many surprises, the SR-71 being the biggest. Just imagine you are in charge of building a secret airplane out of titanium and there are few suppliers and limited supply. If Lockheed bought enough material to build one, everybody would know they were building a titanium airplane. So how did they do it? They set up phony businesses all over the country which each bought a reasonable amount of titanium. He was very clever. They also produced the U-2 and a small corporate jet (Jet Star I think). They did that in secret in order to be the first to produce it.

I was cleared to work on his stuff but I never had a "need-to-know" about any details. When I was told I was cleared, I was told not to tell another company that I had such a clearance, because when that company called to verify, Lockheed would deny the existence of that clearance.

It is entirely possible that they are now producing aircraft that no one knows about and do amazing things.

Also, the origin of the name "Skunk Works" may be interesting. It comes from the comic strip Li'l Abner. There was a plant nearby that spewed all kinds of odors and smoke and no one knew what it produced. It was called the Skunk Works. Search for "Skunk Works" for a lot of interesting information about Lockheed's Skunk Works.
