Yes this is an actual plane. To be precise this is the Convair XFY1. The U.S. Navy had two of these planes which would take of and land vertically. Once airborne the would level and then could reach a speed of over 500 mph and also hang still in mid air. This is an original print from early 1955 with some 'photoshopping' on the print to highlight details and contrast before the image would go to print.
