    +Robert Little Is the lower one an A-12?
    I'm only asking because of the shape of the nose.

    +giantnardman YF-12, maybe…it had a air intercept radar in the nose.

    The German proverb goes – If you want to get F-104, buy a piece of land and till it drops out of the sky…

    +Aleksey Ambaryan I just googled the F-104. The first thing that came up was "F-104 Crashes".

    +giantnardman it is actually the YF- 12A prototype of the SR-71, it was built as these fastest intersepter but they went with recon. It is a variation of the blackbird but my goof

    +Aleksey Ambaryan which one? The YF-12A was top speed of mach 3.35 blackbird at 3.2 both still classed as the fastest planes on the planet

    I believe Chuck Yeager set an altitude record or attempted to set an altitude record in the smaller jet, an F104 I believe. He ended up having to punch out setting a record for the highest ejection at the time. This is from what I remember. I hope I'm correct.

    I wish they were still flying out of RAF Mildenhall ! Nothing sounds anything like as good at 500ft 🙂
