Mystery Skyline

I found this image of an X-48B, an aircraft designed and still being tested by NASA. What I want to know is, what skyline is in the background. Actually, I'm quite sure it's futuristic or something, but is there any resemblance to a skyline today?

mysterious indeed
It`s true you can see the tip of the Chrysler building, so I would say that is a very well made fantasy skyline
if he hadn`t put that building there I wouldn`t know what to think, amazing job !!

That's obviously fake. Don't you think you would've seen it already if it was real?

A skinnier Taipei 101 with no "notches" along the building? One of two WTC's on the left of the pic? Not to mention a fatter Transamerica Pyramid? Throw in an anorexic Jin Mao to the right and you've got it!!

I think this picture was featured in a Popular Science article which detailed the development of super/hypersonic air travel. Quite a cool picture.

Yes. It looks like the A380 wil be dated in a few years!

You can see some windows just below the middle section and onto the 'fatter' part of the wings.

Anyone think the characters below the US flag on the plane look like Chinese?

It is true

Very mysterious indeed,who knows,it might have buildings that are built and futuristic buildings on the making. Really nice though,wonder which city will reach to be like that in the near future.
