Opened in september 1991, the Blackbird Airpark an annex of the Air Force Flight Test (AFFT) Museum at Edwards Air Force Base, was established to preserve the proud heritage of the Blackbird family of military aircraft.

Located adjacent to the United States Air Force Plant 42, home of the Lockheed Martin ‘Skunk Works’, the airpark is the only place in the world where one can see a Lockheed A-12 and SR-71A side‑by‑side, accompanied by a Lockheed D‑21B Drone and the only remaining Lockheed U‑2 ‘D’ model.

The Blackbird Airpark is located next to the Joe Davies Heritage Airpark on East Avenue P, Palmdale, accessed by taking exit 37 off Highway 14 onto Rancho Vista Blvd and travelling east for approximately 3.2 miles.
