    Default "Mystery missile" fired off the coast of Los Angeles

    What the heck is that all about?
    What's your theory?

    Here's the raw footage

    Alright, give me your thoughts. Some of you probably have additional rumors or information.

    I don't know what it was, but I do know this: If it was an airplane, it should be readily identifiable (complete with speed, heading, and transponder code) on the records of LAX radar.

    The FAA hasn't come forward with any identifying information. They might decide not to do so if it were a military plane and the military asked them to hush it up.

    If it was a US missile, somebody in the armed forces knows more about it than they're saying... which is to be expected. If it was a foreign missile the same is also true, but with more ominous implications.

    I'm agnostic on the question of what it was, myself. I'm inclined to take the word of the "experts" in the news this morning with several grains of salt.

    I can't see the link from work . But I wonder if an uberhobbiest decided to launch their latest creation. There's a lot that can be done in someone's garage nowadays.

    You're welcome.

    If you need more, this is an excellent link:

    Jet contrails from some angles look like missile trails.

    [This post was originally from Jan 19th, 2010. I've updated it with information about the "Mystery Missile" contrail of Nov 8, 2010, at the bottom of this post. Clearly it's the same thing]

    Now some outlets are reporting that it was USAir flight 808, from Honolulu bound for Phoenix. This is reasonable. I can't figure out how the usual government spokespeople were seemingly unable to figure this out, however.

    Why is it taking so long for someone to step forward and claim this as a training incident?
