Frozen Blackbird

The Lockheed Blackbirds have always held a fascination for me. They are one of the truly iconic American aircraft ever built. This A-12 (CIA single-seat version) is at Blackbird Park at the Palmdale Airport, Palmdale, CA. This was an early morning shot and very cold, as you can tell by the frost on the airplane. While the color image was very striking (the inlet cover is red), the black and white version is my favorite. It just exudes classic cool, both physically and otherwise. Just like the airplane itself.
