From Flying Review 12/1964,


here are early drawings for Lockheed YF-12A fighter, from many magazines.

Re: Early imagine for Lockheed YF-12A from many Magazines

Score one for the Geneva team, and a pox and murrain on the w***kers who finally destroyed that organization.

What was AW&ST thinking with version 2? They must have been talking to Slick Goodlin.

Nobody got the canted tails, though. I have that issue of FRI in my storage unit, including words to the effect that "statements that 'the A-11 is made entirely of titanium' are patently false". Woopsers.

Dr. Hidemasa Kimura(木村秀政, YS-11, A-26, Kokenki and Kawanishi TB designer) said in AIREVIEW magazin's discussion(1964) seeing AIREVIEW's YF-12A 3 side view by famous Kikuo Hashimoto(橋本喜久男), that "Flight 3 side view is good. Thick wing is very draggy at Mach3."
Kikuo Hashimoto thought the possibility of wing conical camber(コニカル・キャンバ).
Dr.Hidemasa Kimura also said about the superiority of Lockheed L-2000 SST in this discussion.

I think that INTERAVIA's one is excellent except left and light engine interval.
Engine interval of Flight plan view is good. I want to see Flight 3 side view. Please anyone show us.
No one expected the stealthy inclined vertical tail stabilizer.

Bottom picture is SR-71 front view. You can see wing conical camber.

A good article about Lockheed A-11 or YF-12, with two new drawings.

Two drawings, yes, but that is a bit misleading. They are drawings produced by the British Air Ministry based on intelligence reports and observations by RAF officers. it is an excellent article but don't expect any new Skunk Works drawings.
