    LOL this is the one that people repeatedly reported as UFOs during testing in the Nevada/NM/Cali deserts.

    *BS detector beeping* really?

    Yes, that carrier stopped by Antarctica a couple years ago and I stole it.

    In my aircraft design book there is some concepts that look very similar to this. It leads me to believe they found some neat out there concepts and used it when making the movie stealth (Found out this picture is from that movie thanks to Google - never saw the film).

    Just for clarity, everyone here is aware that this aircraft does not exist, right?

    Re: F/a-37

    Ha ha, no, I was duped. This was mixed in with a bunch of legitimate military photos received by email. Never saw the movie. I just assumed this was the first peak at the next generation. [well, as was indicated in the email].

    Even worse, rather than checking the photo for legitimacy, I just made sure it was public information before posting. :rofl:

    Sure glad to find that this is a spoof. My photochop sensors went off immediately, but Ivan posted it so it must be good, right?

    That has to be the ugliest and least aerodynamic modern plane I have ever seen.

    Re: F/a-37

    Well, stealth and aerodynamics have never been allies. And it looks a bit like the displays I've seen at one aerospace contractor site.

    Sorry guys, I didn't think I needed to check on this one.

    Stealth is an awesome movie, worth seeing. And Jessica Biel is in it...

    Yes, although I really enjoyed her performance in Next...

    Meanwhile, the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X-45A" [Broken]series is in its fourth iteration, having gone through X-45-A/B/C and N (for Navy), and while the F-117 was a little rough around the edges, this baby is both very stealthy as well as very sleek. :)
