Spot on, the Student it is! With a similarity to the He 162 that cannot be entirely coincidental.

All yours mate.

Here's the pic I promised. Maybe a touch wierd, but hopefully no too hard.



There is another piccie I intend to use. It will be of a type of plane in common use as over a thousand were built, but its its a VERY hard picture to ID. Haven't used it this time as I just wanted to give you all fair warning

I believe that is an isometric view, from below, of the Barnaby Wainfan Facetmobile. You can see the speed brake/spoiler that interrupts the airflow over the lower surface. This acts similar to a trailing edge flap in that the airflow over the upper surface remains attached. This allows flight a slower airspeeds while allowing more predictable flight characteristics. Here's a movie:

Wainfan Facetmobile

I'll submit another airframe. What make and model airframe is this an image of? For bonus questions, at what location was this image taken and how many were manufactured?


Have a great day.

Lockheed Martin P-175 Polecat - and what I wouldn't do for some shots like that of the P-420!

Sorry, my guess was a concept vehicle, your picture looks real.

Not the X-45C, and yes this airframe is very real - not a concept craft either.

I'm gonna say Northrop Grumman X-47...

I'm getting this post in early! - Gonna confirm with a big of googling now

edit it's not the X-47B tho, it must be the X-47A... the leading edge of the B has an extra angle in it, the A is straight.

edit: I'm pretty confident with that answer... If I'm correct this is my submission.



(note I removed the N number
)

that was my original response but, the a is like a triangle and the b is still only conceptual.

edit to add- I THINK.

Maybe you should not have posted the OV-1 Mohawk as it is definitely not an X-47 variant.

My new option, of which I am surer than the last one, is the RQ-170 Sentinel.

It is indeed the RQ-170.

Waynos - your go

Thank you. Now, here is the one I warned you about and its a bugger.

I'll be disappointed if it goes quickly and, yes, I DO know what it is


Final info, there is only one aircraft in the image.

BAe 125 with wings removed is my best guess judging by the wing / tail combo and those rear mounted engines.

Was just going to say Hawker Siddley 125

I've no idea what it is but it can't be the Hawker Siddley 125, note the tail arrangement, on the mystery aircraft there seems to be very little if any vertical stabilizer left after the very high horizontal stabilizer (there would be a visible shadow on the starboard horizontal stabilizer...) - But the HS 125 on the other hand has quite a bit more vert fin left, maybe a bit more than a foot.

Ooh it DID go quickly! Astro has it. It is indeed a BAe (or Hawker Siddeley if you prefer) 125, disassembled at Farnborough and partially covered with a tarp.

The upper part of the fin was on the floor in the shadow of the tarp, but it isn't visible. I found the image on google earth after seeing the real thing.

Take it away!
