The first ones.. Yes those are black hawks for sure...
Somebody upload those B-1bs at edwards too..
They're at this separate runway..

P.S: No F-18 on this thread as yet.. That was an F-15 next to the raptor..
If you wan to see F-18s got the coastal base like pensacola..

Wrong I'm afraid. The pic showing the two SR-71's also features an F-18 and an F-15, no F-22.

yer right. the plane has squarish air ducts and the wings are straight in the back instead of having an angle.

They also belong to an F-15, to which they are attached



Don't worry, I'm feeling quite flippant today, its all in jest.

Yeah yea.. the SR-71 pic has an F-15 and F-18 while there is only one F-22 in that edwards pic..

The F-15 is white nad not in operational colours so I'm presuming it must be the one owned by NASA

That is the #8 pre-production F-15A (USAF serial no. 71-0287/NASA 837) on the ramp at NASA Dryden Flight Research Center. It was retired following the Highly Integrated Digital Engine Control (HIDEC) program. By the time this photo was taken, it had been stripped of its engines and most usable parts. The nose gear strut had been removed and replaced with a strut from a YF-23A.

The black & white F-18 next to the F-15 is the #6 F-18A (USN Bu.No. 160780/NASA 840). It was retired following the High Alpha Research Vehicle (HARV) program.

The SR-71s are probably 61-7967 and 61-7971 shortly after NASA acquired them from the Air Force. They were shuffled around the parking ramps and eventually given to museums.

Ok you guys found the B-2 I was talking about can anyone find F-117 I was also referring to? Also If you want to see a lot of B-1’s look for Ellis AFB, and Nellis AFB isn't bad either.

I found this exotic looking plane on a runway not far from Area 51, anyone know what it is? I though it might be a bombing target as it seems kind of blasted to pieces, you know those wooden once they use for practice.

I think you may be completely correct with that guess.

you think there should be at least some damage around that aircraft like craters or some kind. even the use of bomblets i see the runway clean as a whistle.
