nope. not fun. it would liekly scorch your hide. i made the mistake at jrtc the last year before they moved it from arkansas of trying to take cover behind an M1 Abrams. bad bad bad tactical error. the hot exhaust from that thing was aweful and it was just a turbine powered tank motor. aircrat are much worse.

Years ago watching the History Channel I saw a program about secret government aircraft experiments is the 1950's.

I don't remember what they called it but the shape sitting on that trailer looks a lot like the Air Force hover craft test shown in that episode. If I'm correct, then this technology pre dates stealth by 15 years.

Tack

Like this thing? -- http://www.abc15.com/dpp/news/local_news/water_cooler/ufo-spotted-on-truck-in-washington-dc-area

Looks like a lot of posts from other cities show things like this or similar to this. Many are saying its a Military Drone of some kind

It's more a shock when you see it motionless and soundless 100 feet over your head.

Looks like the Military's statement was that it was an X47-B being transported across the nation from a manufacturing plant. They're testing it for Aircraft Carrier applications

More info on the X47-B: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northrop_Grumman_X-47B
