So, I saw this little link to the new Area 51 photos and one of the first things that pop up is this titanium A-12 spy plane. I chuckled to myself 'cos I thought it was interesting how much it looked like a smaller version of Queen Amidala's Royal Starship. :D

It wouldn't surprise me to find out that's the exact plane they drew inspiration from for the Naboo royal starship.

It's really quite uncanny.

Isn't that just an SR-71 without the black, radar-scattering paint?

The A-12 was the forerunner to the SR-71 Blackbird, and has nearly the same shape and dimensions as the SR-71. It was designed for over flight of enemy airspace. It was slightly faster and had higher resolution cameras than the Blackbird but the Blackbird had side looking radar and cameras. Due to a treaty with the Soviet Union the US decided to go with the SR-71 that didn't need to penetrate the Soviet Union. The A-12 was retired in 1968 due to budget and the existance of the SR-71.
