Default Unusual Jet last Friday

I saw a jet last Friday fly over Gulf Breeze which I thought was somewhat unusual. The jet was black with what appeared to be retracted wings with a second set of wings extending out from the cockpit. I tried to find a similar match online but could only find foreign aircraft that came close. Any of you aviation experts out there see it or know what it may have been?

I saw it on Thursday, most likely a Eurofighter Typhoon. There is always a lot of foreign military training in the area between Eglin and here and even with rotary wing up at Ft. Rucker AL. He was sure making a lot of noise, fun to watch.

the Eurofighter is similar but not the ones we have here right now. The one you saw is the KFIR F-21 the first pic

They're here through the end of this week along the Hawker Hunters in the second pic
