Pretty funny, but faked.
That is a Poseidon MRA Mk.1.
They are not teeny--basically a modified 737 airliner.
The picture was originally of one named 'Terence Bulloch DSO* DFC* RAF', ZP803.
Here is the original as it was leaving the Boeing paint shop:

In America, we'd call it an IBTWLGASM.

I don't see ZP803 on the posted photo, is there only one Poseidon MRA Mk1?

"We are proud to reveal ZP803's new name as she comes out of @Boeing
paint shop; 'Terence Bulloch DSO* DFC*'. Sqn Ldr Bulloch was a @CXX_Squadron pilot during WW2 with an impressive record as the highest scoring pilot in Coastal Command, someone for our crews to aspire to."

The aircraft number in the above quote is from the Twitter posting by the RAF

Click on the left photo and you will see the aircraft before the photoshop alteration. Same plane w/o altered paint

There are currently 5 Poseidon MRA Mk.1s in the RAF inventory.
