NOT AN AVERAGE WORKPLACE if you look closely.
One of many Lockheed Martin facilities in the US.
Maybe best explained here
light rail system passes by what looks like a wind tunnel. It’s not a rocket silo that’s for sure.
Just to orientate ourselves here. South of the Bay!
Few hundred miles further south at Castle AFB (on an earlier California visit) were some of Lockheed’s more original works and most original work.
Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird obviously needing pushback.
Nothing beats that!
UNDERCOVER BENEATH THE FASTEST AND HIGHEST AIRPLANE THAT EVER EXISTED. THIS ITSELF WAS AN UNDERCOVER ESPIONAGE PLATFORM FOR 3 DECADES SINCE 1964
at one time this beauty could have set off from here in California and be in UK or Germany local time 5 hours before it took off. Mach 3 plus or a tad over 4 times the speed of your coffee and biscuit flight
Before the 1964 introduction of the Blackbird above, Lockheed had a pedigree in the field of innovation. Here’s a few they cooked up earlier
Lockheed F-104 Starfighter
P-80B Shooting Star
Lockheed T-33 Shooting Star
