The Complete Book of the SR-71 Blackbird

After Gary Powers' U-2 spy plane was shot down over the former Soviet Union, America needed something new - a nearly undetectable aircraft, faster than anyone could imagine. The plane would be a testament to American ingenuity, an international symbol of strength. At the height of the Cold War, President Johnson announced to the nation the name of this technological breakthrough: SR-71.

Written by Col. Richard H. Graham (USAF, Ret.) who was one of the Blackbird pilots. He later served as an instructor and wing commander. Here he collects all his knowledge of the SR-71, featuring every aircraft, pilot and breakthrough, the book is the ultimate guide to the ultimate plane.
