ok its very obviously the fuselage of a f-18 with some garbage on the wings and the horizontal stablizers removed and moved to the front and put on like another set of vertical stablizers. im guessing rc. look at the missle in the middle of the wing on the left. its not even mounted on correct, its pointing in more to the tip of the wing. could also be an f-5-http://www.rcaf-arc.forces.gc.ca/v2/equip/resrc/images/hst/l-g/f5.jpg

Been around for a while, just another design of R&D flown in the area, like the stealth was before it became known to public after it saw action. Photo does the S___ fighter justice. Some thinking it's an alien UFO really makes me LOL but I guess it could be considered unidentified flying object if they don't know what it is.

It could also be a experimental plane, designet for testing aerodynamics or other components that maybe will be added into airplanes. I dont think this is something we will see on future battlefields. I find this plausible to be a real test plane. BTW most of test planes do actually look weird.
i doubt it would even fly if it was real. G loadings would have those wings off in seconds with that much weight on the end of them. It's obviously a model assembled from various parts of F-5, F-18 and what have you, possibly, as I said earlier, also incorporating an Incom T-65.
Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

when it comes to the government i hella believe it and when i say i believe it i mean that they have secret government aircraft and technology and etc not known to conventional science.i just don't get it skeptics will always say its a hoax whatever.it don't matter what they think anyway i know i certaintly don't care what they say or think:)lets just ignore them lets not give them the power or attention.but this is very i interesting what the guy captured im going to look more into it:)
Ah, yes. A True Believer. Well, this engineer (Aeronautical & Electrical) says hoax. It is simply not a viable design no matter who made it. There are basic fundamentals of engineering - which include the math and physics to go with them - that are true no matter how tricked out a design is and no matter how advanced the technology is. It all goes back to basics. Simple as that.

Gotta love conspiracy theories. There are so many to choose from.

Given the source I'm not prepared to spend much time on it, but the way the perspective changes on the craft it screams *nearby* and *small* to me. Take a look at similar footage of *real* aircraft doing flyovers at an altitude of *more* than, say, 50 metres/yards. If it is as low as it looks, it is SMALL. As pointed out, if that was full-size, the design is very unlikely to work - but for a slow flying RC, it could.
In fact, if that's not an RC (with perhaps CG thrown in) I'll eat my straw hat. BTW I live near an RC club and often go watch the craft (some of which are quite weird designs, but no, I haven't seen that particular kludge..) and I also love watching air shows and real aircraft, large and small, on approach to Coolangatta airport. Happy to provide footage if asked nicely, but try Youtube first..
If anyone can give more details on its origin, the camera and settings, etc, I'll do a bit more serious work on getting some clues on it's most likely size and altitude. But as it stands, given the almost total lack of provenance (supporting information), it's likely a complete waste of time.
