Lol! That would be AWESOME to see, even if I had to get into work late. Dunno if it's fake or not, tho.

it seem's kinda fake to me... only because i doubt the united states airforce would allow a blackbird to be towed down a highway with ( just) police escort's i dont see any military vheicles's they could be in front of the plane out of view... but it just seems highly unlikely to me that the usaf would do something like that

( unless they were moving a unusable one to a air force museum )

That has to be fake, no way in hell, they would land the Blackbird spy plane, or taxi for that matter on a highway.

Would you land a plane with tons of classified data, and components on a fu(kin highway?

Sorry, this can NOT be true.

they'd land it in an emergency, which is the whole point of having 1 in every 3 miles of road straight for this purpose...
i doubt they'd land it like that regularly, but i think the pic kinda looks real...
any photo shop genii here?

edit
though the colour changing does look very suspicios

Perhaps it ran out of gas and had to be towed off the road? A shame, you'd have thought the pilots would have had an extra gallon in the boot (trunk), wouldn't you?

The photo looks real to me. But what I do doubt is that it is on some major highway. If the picture is genuine it would almost certainly have to be somewhere on a military base. Perhaps the cars in the photo are workers from the base? I dont know, but IF that picture is real that would be the logical answer.

A Blackbird is ALOT longer than that space from the front of the cars to the back of the truck pulling it. Its a fake.

hmm i suppose....
but then and again the cars in the back are relatively small and if you scale it properly..

I have actually had hands on these aircraft...by the way they are officially decommisioned...it could be real IF it is a bird being placed as a static display such as the one at the space center,Huntsville or the one at Eglin AFB
ALL sensitive equipment has been removed including engines.

Feels like a fake..

The utility in the left behind the wing seems out of scale to the cars.

The brown in the forground seems to have been painted over the pic to the back and right. Its 2 pics, the plane with the brown coloring in the pic, and the cars on a motorway in the background. The border is hidden by painting the brown back over the second pic.

However the shadows look good .....

Thats my take anyway....

Is it just the angle that doesnt allow me to see the tip of the wing?

Fake pic see?

RED circle: white line is missing.
BLUE circle: white dash is missing
GREEN circle: Desert-like sand color overlaps with natural highway color.

it's 2 pics overlapping.

I've seen that photo in Ben Rich's book, "Skunk Works". It that it was supposed to be the one moved onto permanent display at Beale AFB in California. But, I have also seen a more likely candidate, Blackbird 958 now on display at Robins AFG in Georgia:
www.habu.org... (scroll down)

There used to be a very similar photo on the website for the Robins Museum of Aviation but I can't find it anymore.

Netstorm,I still dont know if its fake but the winglets would have been removed if it was towed down a road...hazard to signs as well as the aircraft.

It just looks old and probubly being moved for display, and doesnt look ready to fly at all.

very fake.

looks photochopped to me.

no way woudl that much dirt be on a highway. also there are
too many smudge marks and copy areas of dirt to help blend it in.

download the pic and enlarge it ...you will see what I am talking about.


Plus the fact that the immage is hosted on a chinese website is very odd too.
