A YF-12 Presentation was made 3 Apr 12, at the National Atomic Testing Museum. This was the 1st Public Program dealing with only the Record Setting YF-12A. The Panel was the most complete Panel to ever make a Blackbird Presentation. The Panel consisted of Experts that were there, did it and made it happen.
Never has every Phase of the Test Program been available in one group.
After SHORT Talks from Sam & Don, The meat of the Program was opened for Q&A for The Expert Panel.
The Museum did a Great Job in supporting our Program & indicated we may be asked for a Return Engagement.
Sam & Don will make a Presentation at the San Marcos Hanger of the QB's on 7 May.
The YF still holds the 500km & 1000km Closed Course World Speed Records with & without Payload. Set 1 May 1965.
What is not general knowledge, the 15km/25km Speed Record was set carrying 2000 kilos, but not claimed.
This has to be the most complete Panel since Maintenance Troops are not considered HERO's & do not get invited to Panels.
We hope to have a CD which we will pass along.
Posting this will let People know that there was Life before the SR.
Thanks from the 6 Roadrunners !
