This thing is all over the internet....
It looks like it's about to be all over the flying field, or should I say aerodrome!

That looks like a pair of vertical fins/rudders above the wing tips and is that a tractor rotary lurking in the shadows (could be another one at the back giving it a shove too I suppose)?

Trevor,

I have enjoyed your company today, but it's now time to dine and watch a video.

So I'll pass on this one and see what has developed tomorrow morning, although it looks Nip.

Sleep well mate.

That's OK Mate, as it happens, I've just had that phone call I mentioned earlier and have to go now for a couple of hours, so I'll leave it as "usual rules apply" if there's any lurkers!!

Not Japanese BTW!

Catchya later

Clue could help .... having said that there is some similarity with a couple of the Boeing submissions for the ATF in the early 1980's. Any connection?
