Nope, not YF-12's. There were only 3 built, and those aren't them. The nose was different (to house the radar). They're not A-12's, either...since none of them had USAF markings. In that lot, you can see an SR-71B, trainer aircraft. They are in their raw titanium finish, sans black paint.

They appear to have only 1 canopy (except the trainer), while the Blackbirds had two, one for each crewmember?

you are correct. the AF markings threw me. the raw finish was an A-12 trademark. looking back through my book, that picture was taken in 1964 at Groom Lake. they are A-12's. One of my professors in college was a Habu pilot. Lots of great stories.

One of my Christmas Presents this year was "Lockheed Blackbird: Beyond the Secret Missions" by Crickmore. I think it is the third edition. I have not had a chance to start reading it yet but I look forward to it.

Here's a different aircraft picture:

Now THIS Boeing's New Airplane - 747-8 is an airplane. For the 8th straight year, the 747 has been voted the best aircraft type in the world Global Traveler Announces 8th Annual Reader Survey Award Winners - Global Traveler Magazine and can be serviced by most all major airports. The A380 came in 7th in aircraft type. Not that I'm biased, but...

MK XIV? MK22? Paint is wrong for a MK47 Seafire.
