The missile pictured above is an 818 lb. HUGHES
AIM-47A. It is a mach 4, radar guided, air-to-air munition that
was designed to be carried by a YF-12A 60-6935, which is actually
a modified SR-71 blackbird.
|Over the years, I've
collected an overwhelming display of military rockets, rocket motors
and aviation hardware. I will continue to add new and unusual components
as I come across them.
I have harvested these items from scrapyards all over the US
and abroad. Some of the items are beyond my ability to identify
their exact origin or use. I'm looking for your help in uncovering
the mystery behind these fascinating mechanisms.
On this page, you will find my latest items labled with their
proper name or category. If you see an item listed as "UK??"
this stands for UNKNOWN and I'm
looking for your help in labeling that item.
Please send me an email with your comments on the unknown items
and I will credit you with the label under the photo.
I will add new items as I get them,
Thanks for your help.
