Got any Google map links? Last time I looked, the Chernobyl graveyard has disappeared.DM's old hat. Alas the glory days of 50s & 60s oddities are long gone. Former Sov-block and ME boneyards are far more interesting.
For any plane spotters looking for something to do, using Google Maps to have a look around the 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group at the Davis Monthan Air Base can provide a nice way to kill some time.
I've been trying to figure out what these are/were.

Not sure if the wings and fuselages are from the same plane in this pic.

See if you can find the Martin B57 Canberra's (should be easy looking from above) or, for a challenge, find the D21 Drone they supposedly still have parked out there somewhere.
It's a technology demonstrator, Mach 1.4 is more than enough to achieve what it's doing. But it certainly looks very 60s.smartarse cnut. at least make it look like you had to think about it a bit.
good looking beast isn't it? very Thunderbirds. but only due to hit mach 1.4. looks like it should be capable of going faster.
