No. It is not de Havilland.

That is correct. I was surprised how hard this one seemed to be.

General Aircraft Company Genairco Biplane. First flight in 1929. Only 9 built - some open and some cabin versions - but they were quite extensively used for 40 years. There are three survivors: still airworthy VH-UOD (open) and stored VH-UOG (open) in Australia and N240G (cabin, previously VH-UOH and VH-UUI) in USA. This is the one in picture. More info on VH-UUI: http://www.edcoatescollection.com/ac1/austu/vhuui.html

Your turn, Full Metal Jacket  :)

That is the NASA Hyper III

It was an American unpowered full-scale lifting body remotely piloted vehicle designed and built at the NASA Flight Research Center at Edwards Air Force Base, California.
