Michael Schratt has lectured across the country on the subject of “Mystery Aircraft” and classified propulsion systems buried deep within the US military-industrial complex. A recent guest speaker at the world’s largest air show, Oshkosh AirVenture, Michael has developed a number of contacts which have had first-hand experience dealing with classified “black programs”, including former US Air Force pilots, retired US Navy personnel and aerospace engineers who have maintained a top secret “Q” (or “Majic”) clearance.

Michael Schratt is an expert on Ben Rich, the former president of Lockheed-Martin “Skunkworks” (formerly at Burbank and now at Palmdale, CA) and has conducted extensive research on his work. In this program Michael and the host, T.L. Keller, compare notes on two lectures by Ben Rich, one at UCLA and the other at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in the early 1990s. This show complements two previous programs featuring Jan Harzan and Dr. Ted Loder (see show archives).
