Aviation History And Aircraft Photography
A-12 Blackbird
Battleship Memorial Park
Mobile, Alabama


A-12

This A-12 is located at Battleship Memorial Park near Mobile, Alabama, home of the USS Alabama. The aircraft is displayed inside of the newly built Airplane Pavilion. The park has a nice collection of aircraft displayed both indoors and on the park grounds.

Update—the park was heavily damaged by Hurricane Katrina on August 29, 2005. The park was closed for 4-1/2 months as a result, leaving the organization deeply in debt. The aircraft hangar was demolished by the storm surge, causing extensive damage to the aircraft. Aviation historian Pat Carry states that the Blackbird suffered extensive damage. It might have to be given up to another museum that has the ability to repair this historic airplane.

Update—as of February 2008, the Blackbird has been fully restored, repainted, and is back indoors inside of newly rebuilt museum hangar. The park still needs money to help pay for Katrina damage, so please visit the park or donate what you can to help the museum.
