Non veni pacem mittere, sed gladium.
In 1973-75, one of the neighborhood kid's dad was a SR-71 driver. First time I ever heard about the Blackbird.
The A-12 Oxcart was the armed and wicked version of the SR-71.
Oh my God!!! Are those rivets?!!!! What an antique.They were lovely planes. They had one sitting on dry land on Harbor Drive in San Diego for a few months as they waited to move it to a museum. They are unbelievably large aircraft.
no offense LL, but why do u feel like you have to comment on almost EVERY post on this site? no life?
Hey, it's the compelling nature of my posts. You should comment more yourself, Doc!
The AF Museum in Dayton, OH has two of them. Been there half a dozen times and always go there first to get my plane buzz workin'. Words fail.......
