Another familiar aircraft with a twist. I hope I did not give too much away.

It is American and has a twin-fin.

Based on the shadow, single fuselage design (not twin-boom).  And is that an exhaust warning at the aft end of the fuselage?  Also, possibly something at the end of each wing tip.

From Aerofiles on the Lockheed NT-33A:

"Two other NT-33As were [48-357] and [51-4263]. The former—the second TF-80C—was used for ejector-seat trials and fitted with aft-focusing camera recording equipment on top of the nose and with an open rear cockpit. The latter was modified by Lockheed to have twin fins and rudders at the ends of the tailplane instead of the standard single-tail surfaces. The modified tail was at the time considered for the proposed TV-2 carrier landing trainer. Testing was not fully satisfactory and the new aircraft, model L-245 (USN T2V-1), had conventional tail surfaces. (— Johan Visschedijk 9/10/03)"
