It is a A-12 Blackbird, 77835/06931 - code name "oxcart 128", which was the 8th Blackbird off of Lockheed's production line. It became the fastest and highest flying of any airplane in the world, when it reached and maintained Mach 3.56 at 92,500 feet.

Been there. It's a Museum. A couple of years ago, at a open house my wife got to set in it ( I was too big, :( ) All I know is that there is a BIG hole in the belly with a lot of stuff removed. :shifty: But it IS real, you can walk around it and touch it.
