USS Intrepid

Recommended Posts

This may have been mentioned before, but I found it interesting and thought I would share.  Just got back from visiting NYC, and took a tour of the aircraft carrier USS Intrepid.  There are many interesting airplanes arranged on the flight deck, including a Lockheed A-12 (predecessor to the SR-71 Blackbird).  The A-12 starter cart was also on display.  To get the A-12 engines going, the starter cart used a pair of 401 nailhead engines.  See pics below.


Just thought that was pretty cool...
