    A "flying wing"-type airplane and two more traditionally-shaped fighter planes?

    But if we guess successfully, then they'll be IFOs

    F-15 top left, B-2 center, and a wild guess on the last... a F-117. Color seems wrong for that one though.

    I would have said F-18 for the top-left. F-117 was a good call for the last one.

    For the one in the second post, I'm going with a German WWII-era plane. I'm still searching for the actual name

    Yeah - that's the one. I was thinking about a Luftwaffe Flying wing design, and confused the two.

    Flying wing type is correct, but but the other two "traditionally-shaped"... not really.

    B-2 is correct! and the F-117 also, But that last one is not an F-15 and not an F-18.

    I'm still leaning towards a two-engined plane for the upper-left one in the first picture. Based on the nose-cone, it might even be an F-14. I'm hesitant though, because of the smallish size of the plane in comparison to the Spirit and Nighthawk. Of course it could be farther away than it appears. Next thought was a MiG-29/Su-27-type craft, but I doubt that one of those would be allowed that near to a B-2

    Also - from the start, I've been thinking that the two bright spots at the rear of the plane are the engines - but that could be the flawed assumption here. If instead they were elevators, then maybe F-22, or even an F-35.

    The F-35 would make sense, in that there would then be three generations of stealth-aircraft all in the same shot.

    Winner! They are elevators. It's an F-22.

    I'm at work right now, but will try to post some more tonight.

    So what could this be? Interstellar spacecraft? Or something more "earthly"?

    Is it currently flying? Looks like a picture taken from the bottom of a lake/sea. Maybe a radar dish that ripped off a plane.

    Below is an animated gif I made of a ufo me and my two sisters (11 and 13) saw when I was 5 years old. The 13 year old said LOOK... and we looked where she was pointing and the 11 year old sister screamed and then we all three screamed and ran for the house.

    Indeed, google turned up the "Lenticular Reentry Vehicle" which looked like a USAF flying saucer. Apparently, a bomber. It also appears that one of them does not fly so well through water and seabed.

    Not a very well kept secret of a 'plane'. http://www.strangecosmos.com/content/item/159653.html

    Set phasers to multi shot burst! pew! pew! pew!

    edit: If I got that right, the disk is roughly forty feet in diameter! Considering the lighting in the image, that was one serious spotlight on the submersible. And before anyone asks, no, the tail is not bent like in the photo. That's just some bad 'scanning' or scanlines. The tail should be straight and the disk more perfect.

    I feel like learning how to dive, and scratching some weird symbols followed by "wuz here" on the disk.

    Is it possible it is a composite photo?

    Why not "Sticks wuz here"? It would be true

    You ask that in a UFO thread? Personally, it looks legit, but I can't find the photo online.

    They are in the best UFO tradition of very bad photos. Why should we care what they are other than bad photos? Everybody and their brother carries around a good phone camera now. Show me the pictures!

    That is the picture. This thread is about identifying objects. That seems to imply that the poster knows what the objects are. We care because it's a game! It's got nothing to do with aliens.

    Have you clicked on the link I posted? http://www.strangecosmos.com/content/item/159653.html
    It's eerily similar to the photo posted in the thread.

    Next ufo please!

    A bird (flying close past camera), and a patch of snow or light-colored soil.

    You got it! It's the (non existing) USAF LRV! Lenticular Reentry Vehicle. (wiki).

    So, even fake UFO's do get identified!
