    A-12 Oxcarts and a YF-12 at Groom Lake in the 60's?
    Looks like it was taken with Kodachrome II film from the early 60's and that desert mountain range doesn't look like California.

    +Lorne Thomas​​ Good eye.
    The "YF-12B" trainer variant has the "bubble" canopy just behind the main cockpit canopy.

    And it is second from the camera.

    You think the mountain range could be the Sierra Blancas outside of Nellis AFB; Las Vegas, NV????

    Not SR-71. Its Lockheed A-12. YF-12 and SR-71 were developed from this plane which served between 1963 to 1968. USAF didn't make SR-71 aka Black Bird in such big number.' Right?

    These are A12's. I recently attended a living history event at Chino Planes of Fame and one of the guest speakers was part of the development team. The A12 was built in cooperation with the CIA, the SR71 was later contracted with the USAF. The SR71 is slightly longer, and the canards that extend forward from the leading edge of the wings extend forward of the cockpit, where the A12 blends behind. Oh, and they were developed at Area 51. The speaker was showing old photos and explaining the facility. Interesting stuff. He also wrote a book but the name escapes me. Hope this helps.
