The image was a page in an advertisement for a book series.  New to me, any ideas?.  Drones or aerial targets or remote control  trials perhaps

Ercoupes made into target drones? The tails and landing gear give a hint, but the wings look all wrong.

That's really interesting. I'd actually never heard of these - well you learn something every day.
