Fwd: Moving the A-12 from Burbank to Area 51...

A previously untold piece of aviation history...  Just looking at the photos will tell the story.

This is a VERY interesting story and pictures of the A-12 (forerunner of the SR-71 Blackbird) being
transported from Burbank (Palmdale/AF Plant Number 2/Lockheed's "Skunk Works," etc.) to Area
51 (Groom Lake, "Dreamland," etc.) north of Las Vegas. Try to do this today with all of the
environmental picketing, overlapping government agencies, etc...
