I doubt that because you see the circle under the plane where the arrows are pointing well there is a circle at the bottom of the plane on the satellite image too and the second satellite pic of the one arrow going to the plane is the second one your talking about above me i think


The Circle Here

The Circle There

The other plane your talking about :

I found a Blackbird at Edwards AFB, but what's the grey plane parked below and to the right? Is that a YF23?

Damn! This TerraServer site rocks!
Check out Palmdale

I see two B2s and four SR71s (One of which is white/silver???)

Yeah, it looks like the YF-23. It's sitting at Edwards..no engines...just a shell. Nasa has 2 SR-71's that they used to fly at Edwards AFB.....Not sure what the USAF did with the 2 that they de-commissiioned (a detachment from Beale) The pic of Pamldale is good....I'm assuming it's Plant 42. You can also see an F-117 on the runway. Not bad for a pic taken 6-1-94 !!..I've been there several times ......they have a great gift shop LOL......they also have SR-71's and have an A-12 on display as well at Blackbird Park along with the rare D-21 drone. Here's a link for more info:

That is what I thought, but the airplane appears to have six engines located singley, three per side.


Rest assured it is a B-52, definitely not a B-47, the wing planform on the B-47 is much shorter in chord, what you can see is not six engine pylons but four pylons and two underwing tanks.


The other one, in the red circle is a constellation.

The other picture does show a YF-23, it seems to be parked directly behind a Gulstream II or III.

Where do you see a F-117 on the runway age??

For what it's worth, the first Boeing B-52 had a bubble cockpit a la the B-47; it wasn't until the production cycle that they changed to the type of cabin it has now.

In my continuing quest to find cool aircraft in TerraServer shots -

U2s and a display SR71 at Beale AFB

If you know where they are, you can find aerial views of the old Glenview Naval Air base, Chanute Field, and Midway airport from 1938 at this link

www.isgs.uiuc.edu...

You can see planes at all of these locations, unfortunately, the resolution is not good enough to distinguish the specific models.
