Out In The Desert

An hour or so outside of Los Angeles smack in the middle of the desert is Palmdale, the home the Air Force’s Plant 42 and the post Cold War home of Lockheed Martin’s famed Skunk Works. Just outside the fence line is a small park, run by the city of Palmdale. It houses a collection of the aircraft built at Plant 42 over the years and some of the more notable aircraft built by the Skunk Works, including the U2 and Blackbird.
