Photographers who caught the unidentified flying object over Kansas have stunned aviation experts. Could it be a sign that aliens really are among us? There are a few ideas as to what the strange, triangular shaped object could be, but so far no confirmation.
Jeff Templin thought it was something unusual when he spotted the flying object a few months ago in Wichita, Kansas. Hoping someone in the aviation industry would be able to help, he caught a photo of it and sent it in to have it looked at. However, nobody has been able to come up with a solid explanation yet. It looks like a triangular spacecraft with two exhausts flying across the skies, and has led to many conspiracy theorists and alien watchers to suggest that there are other life forms among us.
According to Templin, anybody who was looking in the direction at the time would have been able to see it clearly. The photos show that it is not the traditional passenger or military aircraft. The two exhaust nozzles and contrails are too out of the ordinary, which initially caught the photographer’s attention. Templin explains that there was also the case of absolutely no sound coming from the skies at the time, which happens with aircrafts unless they are tens of thousands of feet in the air.
So, does Templin believe that aliens are among us? While it is still unidentified, technically making it an Unidentified Flying Object (UFO), he does not believe it is from an alien life form. He believes that there is something natural and Earth-like about it, but the question he wants the answer to is what.
Nobody has confirmed anything yet. There are speculations that it was a B-2 Bomber, which aviation experts suggested. However, TheAviationist.com doesn’t believe that to be the case. There is too much distortion and other factors to take into account to determine if it is a B-2 Spirit. As a counter suggestion, those behind TheAviationist.com suggested the RQ-180 stealth drone.
The military are constantly creating new items, and have regularly been the source of strange flying objects. A triangular shaped plane is certainly possible, and would make a good drone. The American military is creating a new long range strike bomber (LRSB) too, at the moment. This could certainly be that prototype.
The military is regularly secretive about its objects, and currently has no reason to come forward if it is a prototype. It makes sense not to come forward either. If the new plans were leaked, enemies around the world could find out and that would lead to the new drones being useless. Overseas militaries would know what to expect, and the US military wants the element of surprise; at least for the first couple of missions.
The photos that TheAviationist.com mentions certainly are triangular in shape, and do have the two exhausts. They closely resemble the object in Templin’s photo, so offer a very good answer.
This is not the first time the triangular shaped object has been spotted either, suggesting that it certainly isn’t aliens—unless aliens are taking over the planet. In March, photographs spotted a similar object in Texas. This first photo had many questioning whether it was even real, due to the shape and size. Steve Douglass took the photo, and is known for spotting unidentified flying objects because he looks for them purposely. He regularly shares those that he finds, so Bill Sweetman, a defence expert, believes that it is certainly a real object.
However, he was lost for words when it came to naming it. All he could do was say what he didn’t think it was. It is very difficult to determine anything due to the blurriness of the picture. The size cannot be determined either, which leads to questions over whether it is bigger or smaller than an X-47B, another military aircraft.
Sweetman believes that the aircraft is a military classified one too. The notable thing about getting photos of the aircrafts is that it rarely happens. The military tends to time the flights right and thinks about the location to lower the chances of anyone being around at the time to snap their shots. Unfortunately, it seems to have not worked on these last two occasions.
Will the military ever share the details? Probably not yet, and there is certainly no need to. While aviation experts are a little lost for words, one thing seems certain. This is not an alien invasion or sign that extra-terrestrials are out there. At least, not yet!
