Moving the A-12 Blackbird

This is one you'll want to keep in your aviation archives  because it's exceptionally interesting and heretofore,  a virtually unknown story.
 
It gives you a small clue to how expensive just one phase of the program was and the measures taken to maintain its secrecy.

  
The secret convey that moved the A-12 (Pre SR71 Blackbird) from Burbank, CA to Area 51 for flight testing.

Remember, commercial airliners were still flying the Connie in 1961

Flight of Old 666........B-17

BOMBER
The Flight of Old 666 AN INCREDIBLE STORY OF BRAVERY
For those of us who were born and lived through WWII, this will put a lump in your throat. For those who afterward, it's a valuable historical film of how dedicated our armed forces are...no matter what war it is.
Please take the time to watch this video. It is a powerful statement of heroism against impossible odds. Two Congressional Medal of Honor were awarded during this 
mission.
So long ago.... It is up to us to remind the Americans coming now to maturity, of this great bravery by these great guys....
Heroism at it's best!
