Equador Mountains

Ecuador Mountains by <<<ALIEN>>> is one of my favourite CTF maps. Very RMG feel to it with the classic 3 ways of attack. Centre, Left using a tunnel or right through the mountains. Highly recommended for CTF
Thanks to -[FC]- FUN ZONE for introducing me to this one.

This is the long awaited release of the ultimate SOF2 Demo Viewer by Infrequent. ReFrag soon became an essential tool for SOF2 movie makers and you will see it in the credits of all the best SOF2 videos.
ReFrag2 is the new improved version with even more features and a much improved user interface. ReFrag2 is not just a tool for movie makers though, it's also an excellent stand alone demo player that lets you analyse every players move from every angle.
Unfortunately ReFrag2 does not support v1.00 but if you play Sof2 Gold this is a must have tool.

Playing SOF2 v1.00

Some time ago when re-installing SoF2 and before adding the gold patch to bring my 3 year old CD up to date, I noticed there were lots of servers still running version 1.00 I decided to do a duplicate SOF2 installation in a second folder on my PC, but running v1.00. I have to say its like another dimension with many hundreds of players never seen on the gold version. You can add v1.00 in about 4 minutes, why not give it a try:) There are more people playing RMG than on gold!!

Playing SOF2 v1.03

Some months after SoF2 was launched a number of modifications were made to the original game which included bug fixes, new weapons, Punkbuster anti cheat software and additional maps. This update, called the Gold Patch changed your original game to v1.03. It was intended to replace to 1.00 version but if you make a copy of your original v1.00 files before applying the patch you can still play both versions.

Photographs of "Blackbird" A12... SR71/A... SR71/B... SR71/C... and M-21.
That I have seen so far........

From what I can gather there were 50 "Blackbirds" produced. 20 aircraft were lost due to crashes and 30 remain intact.

1. The first "Blackbird" an A/12. #60-6930. Located at the Huntsville Space and Rocket Centre in Alabama USA......

3. The third "Blackbird" SR71/A #61-7968 I looked at was at Richmond in Virginia USA.....
It was extremely hot and the grass around the aircraft was very scorched.....


4. The fourth "Blackbird" SR71/A #61-7976 was at the Wright Patterson Air Museum in Dayton Ohio USA.....

6. The sixth "Blackbird" SR71/A #61-7959 was at the Air Force Museum at Eglin Florida USA.....This is the Air Force Armament Museum there are many aircraft on display here.... This Blackbird has an extended tail section of approximately 8 feet/2.5 metres this was added to test some new radar technology at the time.....

The museum is also famous for its "longest indoor hand painted mural" in the world, this is recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records......"



14. On the 14th. of June 2012 I went to the Wright Patterson Museum in Dayton Ohio, I had been to this museum before and had seen 1 "Blackbird" (number 4 above) they have 2 Blackbirds and one of them is located in a part of the museum that is only accessible by bus.... on my last visit there were no spaces left on the bus.... this time I was there first thing and got my name down :D This one is a "Blackbird" YF12A #60-6935 and was never used operationally, also in the photograph is a D21B drone.....


15. The next "Blackbird" is a SR71/A #61-7961 on display at the Kansas Cosmosphere at Hutchinson in Kansas, it is very difficult to see the entire aircraft and the photograph doesn't really do it any justice as it is mounted as if it is in flight.......


16. This "Blackbird" SR71/A #61-7964 is on display at the SAC Museum near Ashland in Nebraska, again it is mounted at an angle as if in flight but there is a lot more room around the aircraft to see it all more clearly........

18. This "Blackbird" SR71/A #61-7979 is located at Lackland Air Force Base at San Antonio Texas USA....On the 25th of April 2013 I had to photograph this aircraft from some distance away as there was no admittance to the base for security reasons when I arrived....


19. In May 2014 on holiday in the USA I saw this "Blackbird" A12 Trainer #60-6927 called "Titanium Goose". It was the only one built. It is  located at the California Science Centre in Los Angeles. You can see that only the nose area was painted to stop the pilot from being dazzled by the sun.


20. This "Blackbird" SR71/A #61-9795 is at the March Field Air Museum, Riverside California. The cockpit was open and they had a gantry beside the aircraft so you could look inside. May 2014.

27. On the 25th of June 2016 I visited the Hill Aerospace Museum at Ogden in Utah USA. They have the only SR71/C ever built #61-7981 nicknamed "The Bastard" it was built from the rear end of YF-12A #60-6934 and an engineering mock up of an SR/71A front end used for testing.

This area is not part of the tour at Edwards AFB. But I was given a tour by "Jack" who very kindly invited me onto the base to take these photographs.... Thank you very much Jack.

29. I was very fortunate on the 13th. September 2018 to be able to go to Beale AFB in California... A friend of mine called Bill who served in the US Military was able to gain admittance to the base, we went on the base and I took some photographs of the 29th Blackbird SR-71A #61-7963..... Thank you very much Bill.

Beale AFB Website

There is now 1 remaining Blackbird that I will be unable to see due to its location.....

1. A-12 #06931 - On display at the CIA Headquarters Langley Virginia. Not open to the public.

Maybe in the future there will be a tour available when I may get to see the last remaining "Blackbird" aircraft and I will be able to get to photograph it.
