Not by chance. It most certainly is!
Early UAV.
Almost 500 built.

So - over to you  ;D

Thank you LameHawk  :)

This one should be easy … it's an O'de to Max-The-Hitman's addition to our sim.  :)



As this one is very easy … exact name is required.  :)

Nope, I never did that. I think it was Cirx who made the "jet-man" 3d-model for the IL2-1946.

The REAL jet-man was invented by Yves Rossy. Exact name, I don´t know.  :-[

It has no exact designation. Rossy refers to the aircraft as Jetman

Actually it does have a name. :)

The Gryphon Single-Man Flying Wing



The Gryphon Single-Man Flying Wing is a parachute system whose Delta wing has micro-jet engines on board that can carry a paratrooper 110 miles on a half gallon of jet fuel. The wing has aileron and flap-like control surfaces along its trailing edge, and around 2 liters (0.5USgal) of jet fuel housed in flexible containers in its leading edge. The surfaces would be controlled by the parachutist using handles linked to servomechanisms. A parachutist could jump from up to 33,000ft using the system, with oxygen equipment and thermal clothing. On reaching an altitude of 3,000-5,000ft, the parachute is opened and the wing lowered on a cord to hang several meters below the user.

A military version is also being evaluated.

I don´t know about that.
I have found the real photo. The previous photograph was re-touched by the secret service to hide the real airplane.  ;)
