Those are some pictures of X-Flight, the Flying Dutchman at Six Flags Worlds of Adventure.  If you want to see more, search RCDB also for "Batwing" or "Stealth".

Be sure to examine the close up pictures of the trains -- they exit the station backwards, and recline backward on the lift hill so that you're heading backwards AND on your back.  At the top, during the turnaround before the first drop, the train flips over, leaving riders face down, with their heads now going forward, like you're flying (thus the name).  If you want any more info, run a quick search on practically any coaster site and you'll find TONS.  Glad I could help!
