Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird Manual: An Insight into the Design, Operation and Maintenance of the Secret US Cold War Reconnaissance Aircraft
By: Paul F. Crickmore (author), Steve Davies (author)Hardback
Throughout its 34-year Cold War career with the USAF and CIA, the top secret Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird spy plane was the world's fastest and highest-flying operational manned aircraft. Dedicated to strategic reconnaissance, the Blackbird was so fast that no other aircraft could catch it. The co-authors are world authorities on the Blackbird and give rare insights into the secret world of the SR-71, its genesis, construction and anatomy (including its use of stealth technology), and its operation and maintenance in peace and war.
Steve Davies is an acclaimed freelance aviation photojournalist based in Cambridge, England. Paul F. Crickmore is the world authority on the SR-71. He was given privileged access by the CIA and USAF to the top-secret world of the SR-71. Paul lives in Suffolk, England.
