Description: I exited the front door of a friend’s house. I Took several steps to my car when I observed a white or light-colored brace-shaped flying wing (I would say boomerang except the wings tapered off). It was at least 1,000 feet altitude in a nearly cloudless sky. The object didn’t look particularly large or small. The object was south of my location, in Arizona airspace over the Arizona strip. The object moved completely silently and very slowly eastward in a meandering loop, making very sharp 90 degree turns. I have never seen anything move like it. After about 15 to 20 seconds of observation the object simply disappeared in a clear sky as it drifted east.
I do know that the Tonopah Test Range is a little more than 100 miles west. The craft looked very similar to the RQ-170 except for the tapered wings, instead I would say the closest match would be the X-56A, only larger, minus the wheelbase and with a higher sweep degree. Despite the comparisons to these two UAVs Unmanned Aerial Vehicles), what I saw looked different enough that I would say it was distinct compared to other options that I have reviewed.
Additional Information From Witness: Unfortunately it happened last year (2014). I recently decided to look into what I saw and was surprised by how similar my account was to other “boomerang UFO” sightings. I also read a report on your website that hypothesized a sighting related to Tonopah Air Force Base and it made me realize my personal theory of secret aircraft testing might hold some weight.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting. Be detailed in your description. You may also use our report form to report your sighting. Comments will only be published if they are in "good taste" and not inflammatory. Also the name that you list in the comment will be posted. Use abbreviations or aliases if you don't want your name listed.
That is what I have thought for a long time. The U.S. is testing reverse engineered craft that they quietly introduce to the public in the form of new military war planes knowing that none of us will ever see the cockpit. I think they have been doing this for years along with electronics that eventually make it to the public as something new on the market and the public just buys it and thinks nothing of it.
Sounds like a good theory to me. There are lots of covert military facilities in Utah including the new NSA facility in the Salt Lake City area.
