Well, it's unidentified. It's flying. It's an object.

So what?

Probably an experimental military aircraft or a derivative of a current one for research. They did this a long time ago for the F-16 with a delta-wing type configuration.

As rare as hen's teeth.

It looks like the pilot's in the back seat. Guess he just doesn't want to be seen… Who's the bigger chicken?

hen's teeth,.....

Maybe one of the experiments escaped from the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Genetics lab.....

They must have made some progress (if you want to call it that) since the last time I heard about their work.

If "... the mystery aircraft was flying in close formation with three others ...", why are the others not in the photos?

Maybe it was a misprint. They were flying with three otters, but they were all in the back seat.

Why does an Undetectable Flying Object rate an OT?
