9780004724614: X-Planes: Secret Aircraft and Secret Missions

‘There’s something black in the skies over Nevada’. Secret Aircraft provides a fascinating insight into the USAF’s classified (‘black’) aircraft programmes from the 1950s to the current activities in Nevada.

There is no doubt that the USAF is operating several highly secret airplanes. Russia and several other nations are also involved in clandestine aircraft programmes on the very edge of workable technology.
These have attracted interest from outside the aviation community: the ‘X-files’ audience is convinced these craft use alien technology. The book is intended to appeal to this wider market, as well as our usual market of aircraft enthusiasts.
Secret Aircraft reveals the USAF’s classified (‘black’) aircraft programmes from the 1950s to the current activities in Nevada. It investigates British, Soviet and other secret aircraft projects and their missions, from spy-plane flights to incidents like the shooting down of the Korean airliner by Soviet fighters.

''There's something black in the skies over Nevada.''

'X-Planes' investigates the highly secret world of spyplanes, advanced aircraft projects and the US Air Force's so-called 'black programs'. From the final days of World War II, when the Nazis planned to launch rockets on New York from submarines in the Atlantic, to aerial combat over the USSR in the 1950's and 60's, to the rumoured use of 'alien technology' by the USAF, David Oliver and Mike Ryan reveal what's really out there...
