Really. Last night on HistoryHD there was a show about early stealth and prototype aircraft. One of the projects was called the "Aurora". It was a stealth type aircraft that NEVER CAME OUT and the government now denies it ever existed or that they were ever developing it. I found myself sitting there laughing like crazy at the coincidences. Here's the only quote I could find about it online:
So far, no other nation has developed stealth technology comparable to the F-117A, but with the aircraft steadily aging — the last ones rolled off the assembly line nearly 15 years ago — there's pressure to find a replacement. Over the years, rumors of other successors have surfaced — mostly just their mysterious-sounding names, such as "Black Manta," "Aurora" and "Mothership." Meanwhile, undoubtedly, other nations continue to try to find ways to detect the F-117A. Russian fighters, for example, reportedly carry devices that attempt to track the stealth fighter-bomber's heat. So far, however, the aircraft has been tested against upward of 40 different surveillance technologies, and remained invisible to them all.

It already went there!

Yes, the Aurora was supposed to be the SR-71 replacement.

Saturday morning I flew my helicopter in my pajamas
How it got in my pajamas I'll never know
