Wow.

Some of these look amazing, and some even look like they should be physically impossible to fly


Didn't realise aircraft can come in such peculiar shapes.

Thanks for posting

I think almost all of these pictures are fakes. The i can see two might not be, but then again I have never seen anything that looks like them.

With that said they are amazing fakes and look really good, I like the one that’s got like 3 floors to it, I might be wrong but i think its a A 330 that’s been edited with a third floor.

Im pretty positive none of them are real, but they are entertaining and well made.

I don't just "think" they're all "fakes"....


I think almost all of these pictures are fakes.


...I KNOW they are all "photoshop" jobby jobs...

(Making a change, on second look. The B-747 with the "hump back"?? That is real. It is designed specifically to transport airframe components for the upcoming B-787. See here, and read about it.

(I ran across those SAME pictures on another website last week , whilst searching for something else...looked, laughed, then moved on...they were presented AS a tongue-in-cheek project, it was obvious. Too bad I don't remember that link...)

They all look pretty funny but the 5th one from the bottom looked pretty awesome.

Fifth from bottom, and the one ON the bottom...same sort of imaginary "craft"....same mash-ups, different angles and liveries...

Really, in today's world, photographs that aren't known and sourced exactly will always be subject to greater scrutiny.

Just look at the motion picture industry to see why....

Obviously most are fakes but some pretty way out designs that could possibly work ,just have to find someone crazy enough to fly them!
8th from the top looks similar to an actual design from German WW2 manufacturer Arado who were ahead of their time with many futuristic designs

LOL these are quite funny, the one with the engine in place of the cockpit made me laugh!
Quite a hilarious find really, but surely you couldn;t believe they were real!?

No its obviously photoshop but the one you mention would have some serious grunt,i'm talking vertical climb into the stratosphere.some of these would make great R/c models

Yes that is why they were posted because they look good and whoever did them has a great imagination.

You might be able to get one of these or at least the plans from Arado here is a link to what they were going to build.

Wow, photoshopped models I am sure but way cool! My favorite is the 4th one down in blue. Would love to own a proto type of one of these before its manufactured.

Thats the one!

Kinda mimics the shape of a ship i once drew. Also saw a drawing of that in sci am.

Nah, they are all real. Me and my boys stole a few of them when we broke into Area 51 a couple of weeks ago.

I sold them all to my Uncle Monte, who got drunk and wrecked all of them on a bender the first night he had them.

There is one real plane in the bunch -- the Boeing 747-400 Large Cargo Freighter (the one that says "Dreamliner Express" on the tail's vertical stabilizer).

Boeing built it (and three other similar planes) to transport large pieces of its new 787 Dreamliner. They are calling the Cargo Freighter the "Dreamlifter".

This is similar to Aibus' "Beluga", which was also originally designed exclusively to carry large parts of the Airbus 380:

..and don't forget NASA's "Super Guppy" used to transport large spacecraft pieces, parts of the space station, etc:
