Text This piece of the History of the Lockheed A-12 is
dedicated to the memory of Dorsey G. Kammerer. Dorsey
was a part of the Lockheed SkunkWorks from its
inception. He was an "inside" man on the team that built
the P-38 Lightning, the P-80 Shooting Star, the F-104
Starfighter, the U-2 Angel and the A-12 Archangel and
the other versions, the YF-12 and the SR-71.

Let's hear a rundown of what you found so cool about it. All I see is a link to someone else's writing.

A very interesting chapter in aviation history. I especially like the pictures.
I wonder why Area 51 was the destination. My guess is that it has the right levels of remoteness that make the choice location.
