The Blackbird Family

This list contains every A-12, YF12 and SR-71 Blackbird ever constructed. The list can be filtered by aircraft type or current location. Each listing has information and photos along with its current location and map.

A-12 #06924 / #121

Location: On display at the Blackbird Airpark in Palmdale, CA.
A-12 #06924 / #121

The first A-12, known as Article 121, was built and ground tested in Burbank during January and February 1962. Because the aircraft was too secret to fly to the test site and too large to carry on a cargo plane, it had to be trucked.

LASRE was NASA's Linear Aerospike SR-71 Experiment which took place at the Dryden Flight Research Center at Edwards Air Force Base, California, until November 1998. The experiment sought to provide flight data to help Lockheed Martin validate and tune the computational predictive tools used to determine the aerodynamic performance of the Lockheed Martin X-33 lifting body and linear aerospike engine combination and to lay groundwork for a future reusable launch vehicle.
