Here we have the Lockheed A-12, OXCART. Only 15 were built and only three would fly operational missions, ironically none over the USSR which at the time was their primary proposed target, the CIA says. The aircraft was replaced by the highly successful US Air Force version of the plane, the SR-71. The painting, entitled “Untouchable” depicts the first operational flight of the A-12 in May 1967.
