This video is making the rounds online and I am not even close to any kind of expert, I hope some of you can shed light on what this actually is. Sorry cant embed the video.
The general manager of Lockheed’s most secretive arm, known as “Skunk Works”, refused to comment Tuesday on a mysterious aviation technology spotted recently at a Lockheed testing facility in the Mojave Desert outside of Palmdale, California.
A video began making the rounds on Twitter Sept. 22 exposing an oddly shaped, sleek aircraft being loaded onto a flatbed trailer.
The video was re-posted by Ruben Hofs, an aviation enthusiast, who he says stumbled across it on TikTok.
Defense One’s Global Business Editor Marcus Weisgerber hosted a conversation with Jeff Babione, Lockheed Martin’s vice president and general manager of Skunk Works on Tuesday.
Weisgerber asked Babione about the video of the alleged Skunk Works’ aircraft technology.
“Alright, Jeff, we’ve gotten a number of questions about this, and it was about a video last week that surfaced on Twitter of an AFA [Aerial Rocket Artillery]” at “allegedly a Lockheed facility in some shape if you will on the back of a flatbed truck,” Weisgerber said. He then asked, “Are you able to tell us anything about what we saw?”
Babione smiled and replied, “I can’t.”
“Ok,” Weisgerber laughed, “Has your security posture changed?”
Babione chuckled, took a deep breath, and responded, “Uh, we’re, we’re in good shape.”
If someone could post this video from the link or twitter it would be great. Thank You!
