The image above has been splashed all over the net over the last week. It looks like a scene out of The Flight Of The Navigator, but really, that tarp could be hiding the future of American air power.
The image was taken by Arizona resident Charlene Yazzie on Arizona Route 77, with the convoy of trucks and black SUVs from the Department of Public Safety heading south toward the town of Holbrook, Ariz.
When contacted by KMOV of St. Louis, the Department of Public Safety, which is a major state law enforcement body, playfully said they have no idea what the thing is stating: “UnFOrtunately we do not know what that is but it looks interesting.”
As for what lies beneath that gray tarp, we can only speculate, but we have seen stealthy flying wing aircraft and radar test models transported this way before.
Most famously, the Navy’s X-47B Unmanned Combat Aircraft System (UCAS) demonstrators crossed the country on flatbed trucks. Their out-of-this-world lines and shrink-wrapped anonymity sparked many flying saucer theories, even though the move was openly publicized and the craft were clearly the X-47Bs.
