An plane observer reportedly took the photo while the aircraft was over the Military Operating Area at Edwards Air Force Base in California, flying in a racetrack pattern at an estimated altitude of 20,000 feet.
A mystery UAV — possibly RQ-180 — flew a racetrack pattern in daylight over Edwards in mid-October. Also, @AvWeekGuy reports an RQ-180 nickname is Shikaka, the great white bat from Ace Ventura 2. Story:?https://t.co/bB5xT3mFLX— Steve Trimble (@TheDEWLine) November 1, 2020
After posting the photograph from what could very well be the Air Force’s shadowy RQ-180 spy drone on Instagram, it then mysteriously disappeared.
Then, Rob Kolinsky (@sundownerstudios) who had saved the Insta post, published the picture of the mysterious plane on Twitter, pointing out that the mystery aircraft looks like the B-21 Raider bomber.

And the undefined aircraft does indeed look like the new B-21 Raider bomber, a new strategic bomber being developed by Northrop Grumman.
So, what is this mysterious UFO?
According to Aviation Week & Space Technology, the aircraft looks like the long-endurance, uncrewed drone RQ-180, designed to conduct intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance missions against targets guarded by modern air defense forces.
However, the RQ-180’s existence has never been confirmed by the U.S. Air Force.
Or was it the P-175 Polecat?
I would say it really looks like a prototype of either Polecat, B-21 or the RQ-180 being tested over California. Anyway, what was this drone looking after?

They should roll out some cool stuff one day. Hopefully show us how they spend our tax dollars.
I betcha they keep some of the good stuff in Antarctica. Then show us the nasa crap to keep us pacified.
They have flying platforms and Hiller type craft. Been around forever.
You know they can make ufo type craft. So sick of the crap and lies they feed the peons.
