Oddity at the MSP airport

Unless my jeg-lagged eyes were completely deserting me, an SR-71/whatever-NASA-calls it was sitting out at the airport with an engine sitting next to it. Weird sight to fly in and see.

Aha! It's one of the surviving A-12 Blackbirds, and had just been rolled out or some such. Normally on display at MSP, I never knew! See here for details.
