Here we have a Grumman F-14B Tomcat. It is serial number 157986, and was the 7th Tomcat built. It was used a prototype for testing.

Here we have a McDonnell Douglas F-15A Eagle. This is serial number 74-0084, and it is located at the Alaska Aviation Heritage Museum. I took this one back in 2010. This particular aircraft operated out of Elmendorf AFB near Anchorage Alaska and was donated to the museum in 2008.

Here we have a Lockheed A-12. It is serial number 60-6925. The A-12 on display, code-named Article 122, served as a radar-test example early in 1962 at the secluded test site known as Area 51, near Groom Lake, Nevada. A special radar signature, lowering paint covered the mostly titanium airframe, also incorporated radar-absorbing materials. Massive Pratt and Whitney J58 turboramjet engines powered the plane. These engines were used only in the A-12 and the SR-71 Blackbird.

Here we have an Avro Vulcan B.2. It is serial number XL318, and it was the first B.2 delivered to 617 Squadron (the Dam Busters) based at RAF Scampton on September 1, 1961 where it served until December of 1981.

Sorry for the very poor quality and lighting. I used a flash but this part of the RAF Museum has absolutely terrible lighting.
