My understanding is that an A-12 is on a pylon at Langley, completed or nearly so now. Wonder if there are any pictures floating around?

No shit! The end of a great era. Biggest mistake the Air Force ever made was getting rid of the SR-71 program.
|Quoting CF188A (Reply 4):|
If you can find one source beyond aviation obsession (we all have it) which claims it was a mistake to retire one of the most costly aircraft in the USAF arsenal , then I would love to hear it . The costs involved in the SR-71 program are nowhere near necessary given the present day technology which can accomplish the exact same mission on a much more cheaper basis.
