The "experimental aircraft" in the photo and drawing is
a Skunk Works project. It is not a military aircraft.
It is a supersonic cruise/sonic boom research type. Though the USAF does provide support, very little of US
Government funds go to this project. It is one of the
mystery aircraft that have been causing "some" of those mysterious sonic booms during morning hours. Astronauts that fly the Space Shuttles, when they cause such booms, refer to such as "wake-up calls."
