the initial report that the wichita sighting happend in february is wrong.
in fact the photo was taken on the 16th of April 2014.

different locations.

things are getting interesting

Agreed 100%. That is exactly what it looks like.

It is a german Horten plane, that survived WW2, confiscated by the US and now developed further. The newest invention engineered from those Horten engineering is what we see on those pictures...

In the post above I see almost an exact image of the Avenger II, without the intakes, which leads me to believe that it is a larger aircraft with intakes on the dorsal side. Probably a next Gen Bomber prototype. The aircraft depicted in the right side picture, looks a lot like the F-117, and for some reason makes me believe it's a UAV, or UCAV.

Interesting stuff.

i´m sorry to disagree, but i dont think the second pic (the one who was photographed in amarillo) is a uav or ucav, if you go to the blog post of steve douglass you can hear radio chatter from the aircrafts (callsign sienna or senna).
this is very unlikely for unmanned crafts. (but still not impossible )

also there were 3 crafts in formation, also very unlikely for "drones"

i hope we will see in the near future
