Notice: The appearance of U.S. Air Force, U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Coast Guard, Department of Defense, or NASA imagery or art does not constitute an endorsement nor is Cybermodeler Online affiliated with these organizations.
Note: After the cancellation of the F-12 program, NASA was given two of the YF-12A prototypes for high-speed flight research. When one of those two aircraft was lost, the USAF allocated an early SR-71A to the agency as a replacement. However, at that time, the existence of the SR-71 program was still a secret and the appearance of this aircraft at Edwards was covered by redesignating it as a YF-12C.
