Hard to believe that we all still drool over and admire this aircraft that is a half century old and we wish was STILL flying! Just goes to show you the incredible genius behind Lockheed's Kelly Johnson and Skunkworks. They truly were decades ahead of their time. Can't imagine what we have flying today that's top secret in its place.
