SR71 Lockheed A12 Blackbird Spy plane

The Blackbird Spy Plane on the Intrepid Museum. Serious ultimate technology for speed freaks. Even faster than Concord. I just had to see this stunning plane!

The light was grim but I just had to photograph it.

I saw the film "I am Legand" with Will Smith (practicing golf) and I knew I just had to visit this museum.

I remember watching a program about the Blackbird. When the Blackbird detected an incomming missile the plane just accelerated and out ran any missile fired at them. So cool!
