    The Senior Citizen Program – “The Aurora”



    According to Wikipedia
    Aurora was a rumored mid-1980s American reconnaissance aircraft. There is no substantial evidence that it was ever built or flown and it has been termed a myth.

    The U.S. government has consistently denied such an aircraft was ever built. Aviation and space reference site Aerospaceweb.org concluded, “The evidence supporting the Aurora is circumstantial or pure conjecture, there is little reason to contradict the government’s position.”

    Others come to different conclusions.

    In 2006, veteran black project watcher and aviation writer Bill Sweetman said, “Does Aurora exist? Years of pursuit have led me to believe that, yes, Aurora is most likely in active development, spurred on by recent advances that have allowed technology to catch up with the ambition that launched the program a generation ago.”

    Throughout my years running The Black Vault, I have seen and heard about the connection between the program name SENIOR CITIZEN, and it’s association with the rumored Aurora Program. However, it has been a struggle getting information about this.

    Below are documents related to the Aurora, as released under the Freedom of Information Act
    Department of Defense
    Future Years Defense Program (FYDP) Structure – Codes and Definitions for All DOD Components, April 2004 [2,160 Pages, 4.6MB] – This document shows the “Senior Citizen” designation and program element number.

    United States Air Force
    Based on the above program element number. I filed a FOIA request for information relating to it. I filed to the Air Force, and the OSD/JS in hopes someone may shed light on what the program element was.

    OSD/JS just forwarded my request to the Air Force, and the Air Force denied having any records on it. It doesn’t make sense, so I appealed based on the document above, listing specifically the SENIOR CITIZEN Program Element (PE) number.

    My appeal was denied as well.

    I went after all case processing notes, emails, memos etc. that were generated during this request back in 2016.

    So you might just say that the info wasn't really free at all. Another cover up? Who knows? Probably only God Himself knows, in my opinion.
