Most pages I found cite 7 firings, but I saw one that had a correction note from someone that was supposed to have been involved that said they only knew of 3 firings. That's why I said that there were between 3 and 7. I still have yet to find anything but that one page that says they fired the AGM-76 from any of them however. They only talk about the tests with the AIM-47 as the only actual firings from a YF-12.

I was thinking what would a pass over a building in such a manner? Would it cause any damage? or would the occupants just wonder what the heck was that, an earthquake?
