It is indeed a Frontier Systems airframe - It is their Shadow High Altitude / Long Endurance demonstrator.

Your turn.

BTW, it is Tagboards turn to post an aircraft. We'll give him untill tonight.

So I'll apply a new rule, if you guess you need to check and post a new one w/in 24 hrs.

OK, I'll post one. What is the name and origin of this airframe (on the pylon). Have a great day.

Reminds me of Have Blue and the XST program...the intermediate or early Have Blue models.

That is Lockheed Martins Senior Prom.

It is not as most people believe a stealthy missile, but a sensor carrying low observable UAV.

I'll find one to post. Be right back.

A little bit of a cheat this one as no one truely knows wether this ever got to airborne flight test stages or not, but it'll be a little bit of a brain strainer.

Lockheeds GA2 "GUSTO" Tailess, subsonic, low RCS aircraft to replace the U-2.

Testing showed that it might be visible to Soviet radar.

I've seen this image before. Without digging around too much my first guess is:

The Lockheed GUSTO II is a product of CL Johnson's Lockheed Burbank ADP group. It is a low speed wind tunnel model (maybe?) of a low-observable (for the time) study configuration that was one of the candidates for the CIA's OXCART program (which became the A-12). It looks similar to the image of another Lockheed span loader configuration here:

Lockheed CL-278-1-2

Nice. Post one as soon as you can.

I knew I'd seen that somewhere, Senior Trend, but I couldn't for the life of me remember where.

What is this? Bonus: Which agencies funded and why?

Teledyne Ryan YQM-98A. I knew I'd seen that shape somewhere (Compass Arrow!).

It was designed to compete in the US Air Force's Compass Cope high-altitude RPV program in the early '70s. The program was later canceled however. Oh, it was for signals intel.

if you want to see it in a boneyard put these coordinates in your fav. sat imagery program (goggle earth, etc.)

That is the NASA OWRA (Oblique Wing Research Aircraft) and those pictures are very old - I believe it was either '74 or 1975 IIRC.

My go.

The closest airframe I'm familiar with is the Aurora Flight Sciences Theseus. But, upon reviewing the images, it is not.

This was a great challenge, but I finally found it. Beyond being a German high altitude composite type I was stumped, I was sure it was made by someone like Diamond or Grob but many searches came up with nothing (Google? Pah!)

But now I have it! My instinct was right. I give you the Grob G850! at last.

Here's a little something from me to have a go at.
