    At 13,000 MPH, Pentagon’s Hypersonic Plane Disappears Quickly - Washington Wire - WSJ
    There's something amusing about a super-fast plane disappearing super-fast.

    I can't wait until we develop a vehicle with active camoflauge and then have trouble finding it after testing.

    We'd send Clint Eastwood, and he'd fly it back.

    The United States is so bad ass.

    Halfway around the planet in less than an hour. Incredible.
    Wait, you mean the mighty Chinese didn't do this? You mean it's the USA (that is finished for all eternity)? It just can't be from all I've heard.
