SR-71 Blackbird Spotting

20050810BlackbirdThis is super COOL! This site has listings of SR71 Blackbirds that have been decommissioned and are sitting out on display. But the really cool part is that he’s linked those locations with the satellite images from Google Maps, and you can actually see them scattered all over the US. Why is the SR-71 so cool?

Here is the summary via Wikipedia

The Lockheed SR-71 Type A, unofficially known as the Blackbird, is a long-range, advanced, strategic reconnaissance aircraft developed from the Lockheed YF-12A and A-12 aircraft by Lockheed’s Skunk Works (also responsible for the U-2 and many other advanced aircraft). The legendary “Kelly” Johnson, in particular, was the man behind many of the design’s advanced concepts. The SR-71 was one of the first aircraft to be shaped to have an extremely low radar signature. The aircraft flew so fast and so high that if the pilot detected a surface-to-air missile had been launched, the standard evasive action was to simply accelerate. No SR-71 has ever been shot down.
