The Blackbird in the Hangar – Stuck in Customs

The Blackbird in the Hangar

Reminder on Zooming-In

If you want to get the original size photo, or simply zoom in to see some details, follow these steps:

  • First, click on the image, and that will take you to the SmugMug gallery.
  • Then, look closely at the top. You’ll see an “O”, which is usually to the right of X2 or X3. Click on that “O” – it means Original-Size

You may not even really need to be into planes to know about the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird. The way those letters and numbers fit together is almost poetic, isn’t it? SR-71. There is a melody to it that flows in a nice way. It almost makes me wonder if there is some military muse that comes up with some of the better names for these vehicles.

In the background there, waaay in the rear area, you can see the space shuttle. What a cool place! Of course, this is the new Air & Space Museum in DC. By luck, there was a rail here for me to secure my camera to take this HDR.
