Seems real, and the background looks like Area 51 a little. This reminds me of the UCAV, but not the long of wings? Any suggestions? Dosn't it seem to be hovering because of the plane alignment and the runway?

I believe Traojanex is right, those pictures match just about right.

yes, it's a DarkStar... a robotic recon plane.

Pictures like this have circulated in trade mags like Aviation Week for years... so it's not really so secret.

Dark Star is just a set of wings with an enclosed computer system in the front basically. There's really nothing special about it. MGJ, the pic is real.

I have heard that the project has been canceled though.

Looks like a picture of the Darkstar at Edwards when it wa being tested. The program ended after the Darkstar became the DarkSplat on the runway here.

The Dark Star program was canceled, but vague snippets of a stealthy high altitude drone were used in Iraq. It could be a follow on project
