The SR-71 Blackbird was preceded by the A-12 and YF-12, they look about 95% identical.

I can never tell the difference from the A-12 and Sr-71. But your parents should have told you that there were other planes in the carrier which are also not carrier based since its only a museum.

Some people refer to the A-12 as the sneaky older brother of the SR-71... It was an earlier, faster skunkworks project that was flying before anyone knew of the SR-71 program... It was put in "ATS" storage in '68 and released in '81... I wonder what they had in the 90's that's in ATS storage that we CERTAINLY DESERVE TO SEE at this point?
