    Does anyone know if the blackbird from that became Jetfire is still at the smithsonian?
    I took a feild trip with a few friends to washington last year and i was so happy to go and finaly see that blackbird that became jetfire, and to my disapointment, we looked all over the place and coudnt find it!
    Did they take it down?

    Im not sure about a blackbird there or not... Should have asked.

    The outside of the museum in ROTF was NOT the Smithsonian.
    The 2nd night at the museum film was filmed in the Smithsonian.
    Hmmmm....

    ROTF was filmed at, and the Blackbird is still at, the Udvar-Hazy annex near the airport in Dulles. This is an entirely seperate location from the main Air and Space museum on the Mall. You need to take a shuttle from Air and Space, or drive out there.

    Yeah, it looks like this is where all the geographical discontinuities and anomalies begin to rear their ugly heads.

    I saw a Blackbird when I went to the Intrepid in New York. I pretended it was Jetfire's brother or something.

    Apparently that plane on the Intrepid isn't actually an SR-71 Blackbird, but an A-12 - a precursor to the SR-71.
