A prop that was a design concept for the F/A-37.

Still trying tomake sense of the Port side of the image.

Looks like another smaller plane underneath/beyod this one,or else the thing is in no way symetrical.

That would be an aircraft carrier deck.

I have no idea of what that lumpy looking gray thing is though.

The F/A-37 Talon is a near-future, single-seat fighter aircraft of the U.S. Navy in the 2005 film Stealth. In the film's fictional world, the only Talons are operating as a three-plane flight for field evaluation, from the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln (although actually filmed on the USS Carl Vinson[5]).

The Talon is capable of hypersonic flight with two combined pulse detonation/scramjet engines. As the film's title suggests, the Talon has stealth capability, along with forward-sweeping swing wings, an internal cannon for close-in fights, and an internal rotary launcher with a wide variety of ordnance, including GAU-12 Equalizer, AIM-9 Sidewinder air-to-air missiles, AGM-88 HARM anti-radiation missiles, AGM-130C air-to-surface missiles (called "Blue Ferret" in the film), fuel air explosives (FAEs), of an unknown variety, and AGM-2 Truncheon implosion bombs.

A fantastic aircraft, one of my favourites. Link here to avoid spoiling. 1964 first flight, just amazingly advanced. Still the subject of many conspiracy theories including, "the British PM who cancelled it was a communist agent", and "it was so advanced, and altered the balance of power to such an extent, that deployment would have meant greater geopolitical instability". I just like looking at it.

FAUX airplane. It doesn't exist in the real world.

Photos of it have been floating around the Internet for years.
