blackbird rising birth of an aviation legend

If you want to know how the SR-71 came about, and who did what to whom, you need to read this book. The Blackbird, the nickname given the SR-71, was forged from 1950"s and 1960"s components merged with aerodynamics and structural metallurgy from the cutting edge. An aircraft with capabilities like no other, capabilities unequaled in aviation. They consumed the lives of the authors and captured their hearts. 096733270f2
