"A recent photo taken of Groom Lake by a private pilot shows what appears to be a dagger-shaped object in one of the facility's aircraft shelters.

Private pilot Gabriel Zeifman, who has taken aerial shots of Area 51, also known as Groom Lake, the U.S. Air Force's famous clandestine flight test center in Nevada, as well as other shy installations, in the past and whose flights we were first to report on, grabbed new pictures of the facility on Christmas Day. Zeifman shared his latest batch of images with numerous outlets via a public link, which has drawn new interest in the base. Overall, they are very similar to past images, but they do include a particularly good view of an elongated hangar-like structure, known as scoot-and-hide shelter, which appears to have a strangely shaped object of some kind visible inside.

looks more like a U2 side on to the hanger the wing towards the open door. you can see what looks like a tail behind a wing above and to the left of the arrow. U2 wings do droop like that so i think that is the most likely explanation

That rather large, solid black object does look a little like a dagger.

Looks to me like an A-12 prototype, and we are looking at it obliquely side-on.

Be interesting if they are reviving that planform.
