The Secret Projects forum has leaked a new series of images of the US Air Force’s Lockheed Martin RQ-170 Sentinel. One of the images for the first time offers the clearest view yet of the RQ-170′s nose, which reveals inlet shape as an isosceles trapezoid. The basic shape is not uncommon for such flying-wing, stealthy aircraft. The inlet aperture of the MiG Skat, for example, is very similar. But it differs greatly from the inverted-W shaping of the Boeing Phantom Ray and Northrop Grumman X-47B.
