thats what it's supposed to look like. If it's a real picture and not doctored than I would say it's the aroura or some aircraft black or previous that looks real close to how it's supposed to look.

Where did you fnd the picture, and whats the back story on it?

Its a proven fake from an aviation magazine in 2001 0r 2002..

Its a model of what they think it would look like should it ever be revealed to the white world.

which magazine/edition? they must have been able to afford a fine craftsman as this 'proven fake' model has minutely built into it a main landing gear comprised of a double-bogie (twin axle) four tire foundation with a bent-knee style trailing arm main landing strut. They were also able to include a nose wheel with a single axle twin tire setup, a forward-retracting strut and vertical stabilizers with a straight trailing edge. Pretty incredible detail for a 'fake' model. The angle and reflection of the sunlight on the aircraft body also indicates a life-size 'model' must have been used for this 'fake'. They must have gone to a very large effort to produce such an elaborate hoax.

If you enlarge the photo you will also see that there is no photoshop type pixelation evident.

Not a magazine, actually, just a Net forum funnyman.

ATS discussion here

Original forum confession here


When Testors modeling company produced the “XR-7 Thunderdart” model I got one as soon as I could. While it was similar to the FDL-8 shape purported to be the base design of the Aurora, the top of the model was totally wrong so I began modifying it to more closely resemble the Aurora shape. When finished it bore a striking resemblance to several artworks of the Aurora model (mission accomplished!!). So naturally the next step was to photograph it. I didn’t have a ground area that I felt worked as an acceptable background, so I decided to do an “in flight“ photograph. Most of my models are hung from the ceiling of my home with a very simple bridle of monofiliment fishing line, so I just used this to hang it outside.

Well who ever created this fake went unusually far to fool people. The image is blurry and slightly out of focus, but it's also close up. Very unusual indeed!
