6. Here's the caption for the final picture:
Did we have you going??? (Damn sure did!!)

Heres the scoop, its not a new aircraft, its really a fictitious jet aircraft for the upcoming Columbia Tri-Star motion picture "Stealth. Parts of the movie were filmed on the USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72).

"Stealth," starring Jessica Biel, Josh Lucas and Jamie Foxx, is due to be released next summer.

Lincoln is conducting local operations in preparation for an upcoming scheduled deployment after 10 months of dry docked Planned Incremental Availability (PIA)".
