Lockheed Martin's Skunk Works
North Branch, MN, 1995 - 216 pages
The first and only official history of the worlds most famous advanced aircraft design bureau youve been waiting for! In a major pulling back of the veil of secrecy, official histories of such noteworthy products as the U-2, A-12, D-21, SR-71 and F-117 are finally brought to light, authentically described by the company and the men who designed and built them. Lists all production quantities, serial numbers, build numbers, significant personalities and technical data. Exceptional!
