Below, another photo of 9580 doing what it did best. The image is courtesy of the San Diego Aerospace Museum Flickr Stream (SDAM) and shows 9580 performing a roll over an airfield that can be seen below with unreadable writing on the hangar roof (just above the port wing). If anyone can identify the airfield, please let me KNOW.
