Many countries around the world are even worse. But yes, I realize that I am very fortunate to have been able to come to the US to pursue my passion for aviation; Most people around the world do not have this opportunity!

Yes, an SR-71 and an A-12 which is actually the very first Blackbird. Plus an F-117 and a U-2. Joe Davies Air Park has lots of fighter jets, one of the shuttle-carrier 747s, and the Triumph - a Rutan creation that I think would be of interest to any airplane geek, especially us Experimental fans.
