These photos should once and for all squelch the rumors that the 2 SR-71B models were "converted" from standard A-models. Here are 957 (foreground) and 956 (center) under construction with an A-model (955) in the background. The detail below shows the raised rear cockpits taking shape even before the nacelles are completed. - Lockheed photo via Tony Landis
