It was similar to the famous SR-71 Blackbird. The A-12 came out first and evolved into the SR-71 as I understand it.
The A-12 made an emergency landing at Takhli after an engine failure high over Laos. It was diverted to Takhli because Takhli had the CIA U-2 unit there. It caused a lot of excitment when it landed.
I've got a good article about it and I'll email it to you if you want it.
I also have a photo that I found somewhere on the internet that is suppose to be a picture of an SR-71 Blackbird at Takhli.
I guess it's possible that it's actually the photo of the AR-12 that landed in 67.
I was there in 69-70
