SR-71A #17959 was covered in a previous post. Click here to view.
I went back to visit #17959 at the Air Force Armament Museum on March 22, 2014 during a birthday weekend trip. This photo set contains a shot of inside an inlet, as well as some local wildlife. I was pleasantly surprised to stumble upon (almost literally) a Black Racer snake under the B-25 near the SR. Eglin Air Force Base is known for its reptile population. Our favorite plane, the “Habu”, is named after a snake, so I thought it appropriate to include a photo of the little beauty.
