Although the page "Secret U.S. Aircraft Projects at Groom Lake" is currently online as a historical document, you can remove the sections "L301/COPPER COAST" and "HGV (Hypersonic Glide Vehicle)" from that page because Copper Coast was incorrectly associated with the L-301 on that page even though it is a currently active USAF tactical evaluation program and is unrelated to hypersonics, and it's unlikely that the USAF would conduct tests of a hypersonic glide vehicle at Groom Lake.

Moving on, since Aurora was clearly a Pentagon budget codename for request funding for B-2 procurement and the aircraft involved in the crash at RAF Boscombe Down in September 1994 that was considered to be ASTRA was almost certainly was of a fouled towed decoy resulting in a landing mishap of an Panavia Tornado, the page "Known and rumored Black Projects" also is in need of an overhaul due to the fact that hybrid wing body designs mentioned under "Blended Wing Body Design" were unclassified designs and the X-48 was built by Boeing to test its BWB design, not to mention that rumors about the "Blackstar" and "Brilliant Buzzard" TSTO systems were never backed up by credible evidence (e.g. most supposed "Brilliant Buzzard" sightings were actually of the Rutan Long-EZ and Beech Starship).
