One of my all time favorite aircraft - Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird

On July 28, 1976, the SR-71 set two World Records in separate flights:
Altitude in Horizontal Flight = 85,068 feet
plus Absolute Speed Record = 2,193.17 mph




Never Mind - They're out of service now.

But find one of the museums that have them on display. If you are an aviation buff, you'll really enjoy seeing it. I visited the Smithsonian Udvar-Hazy Center (aviation museum) next to Dulles Int'l Airport (near Washington, DC). This center not only has an SR-71 Blackbird but also has the Enola Gay, a Space Shuttle and a French Concorde. This Center has these very large air crafts, rocket displays, satellite displays, civilian aircraft and early flight craft displays. The Udvar-Hazy Center museum is in addition to the downtown DC Smithsonian Air & Space Museum. Both museums are a must visit for aviation enthusiasts. You can find many stories online from those who have actually had the privilege of flying one of these beautiful birds.

If you are that prone to falling off a cliff
that you need to go around wearing a parachute
you probably ought to stay home!





Oh, Never Mind... Murphy & Darwin will come calling one day...!!!

What's the chair for?
Oh never mind, it's probably an incubating device to help him gain some nerve to leap.
