I read a book about this bird many years ago, back when they admitted it was in service about 1967, didn't realize back then that it was developed so much earlier.

Its simply CRAZY how far advanced and ahead of its time this thing is, at least mechanically. And to think they did all of this without modern computers... wow. It is still one of the most amazing looking airplanes of all time. I am in love.
