    Are you talking about the Darkstar? It was the aircraft from the new Top Gun Maverick movie!

    It was the prop used in the movie. I don't know how much everyone knows about this plane (so stop me if I'm being preachy haha). This is a fictitious aircraft. In the movie it went mach 10, piloted by Tom Cruise. The funny thing is that this aircraft and the prop used in the film were actually designed and built by Lockheed Martin. They built it so well that apparently Chinese spy satellites were monitoring the progress of the build! It could be "real" but we shall never know!
