Is there any other picture with the space shuttle and the SR in the same shot? I don't think so. This is a historic capture.

When the engines are as thick as the fuselage, u know u got a fast machine!

No wonder this thing was so fast........look at the size of those engines!!!

Great shot, David!

The YF-12 looks like a true monster! Also, the picture shows in such a beatiful way the base activity. Wish I could give more than 5 stars!

Great contrast sr in black white buildings clear and sharp on the right left side distorted by the exhaust looks like nasa stripe on tail dates pic to 70s or 80s however the ford van and the jeep date to the late 60s or early 70s better than a great shot...

I love the contrast in this picture. The YF-12 still one of the most advanced planes and beside it the typical hippie bus. Looks funny^^

This photo is great because it lays out so much in one shot. The YF-12 and the space shuttle as well as the base activity when it was taken.
