Details

The Blackbird was forged from 1950's and 60's components merged with aerodynamics and structural metallurgy from the cutting edge of technology, creating an aircraft with capabilities like no other, capabilities unequaled even today.

The authors lived with these machines for ten years. This book chronicles political and technical events that molded the SR-71. The story follows airframe and engine, as well as pressure suit and sensor technology, from concepts to operational aircraft delivery at Beale Air Force Base. The book explains the sensors and how they evolved. It describes the feeder programs leading to major aircraft components as delivered in 1968. The authors explain the SR-71 flight test program and other events at Edwards Air Force Base. This story highlights individuals and their unique contributions. It is peppered with personal experiences, as everyone added their special talents to create the Blackbird's aviation legend.
