The photo above shows the Pueblo in Wonsan harbor, after it was attacked and captured on Jan. 23, 1968. The ship was pinpointed by CIA pilot Jack Weeks flying a top-secret A-12 Blackbird aircraft. Built by Lockheed, the extraordinary A-12 could reach altitudes of 90,000 feet and speeds of up to three times the speed of sound. In the late 1960s, A-12s flew 29 spy missions over North Vietnam and North Korea as part of Operation Black Shield. Weeks's mission over Wonsan is described in Chapter 6 of "Act of War."
