In the message: http://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,5836.0.html there was this photo:

In this image there are a lot of known aircrafts: YF-16, F-15, YC-14 and YC-15, YA-10A etc. but looking with the lens in this photo there are three aircrafts that I have never seen before:

A two engines canard fighter and a short aircraft with two larges engines underwing that look like a A-6 Intruder

And in the other side of the drawing there are two aircrafts big wings as in the U-2 but with engine located upper fuselage in pod as in the V-1.

Since that almost all of the aircrafts depicted in this image are really builded prototypes, is there a possibility that the three unknown prototypes are coming from the "Black Projects" world or are they more simply concepts never completed?

'Black Programs', err...Well, *some *well known* ones...ever heard of Compass Arrow, Compass Cope? http://www.vectorsite.net/twuav_05.html
First two I can't identify in the moment, but with some help from the other SPF members it can be done.

In the second crop/image you posted, the aircraft to the left is Boeing's YQM-94A B-Gull. The one to the right is Teledyne Ryan's YQM-98A R-Tern (Model 235).
