“I knew the Blackbird was more than special the day I escorted a hardened Air Force fighter pilot with 17 years of military flight experience to view it in one of the hangars at Okinawa. He stood there in awe and was actually afraid to touch it.”
Terry Pappas, SR-71 pilot
The Lockheed Martin, SR-71 Blackbird is also known to those who flew it operationally as the Habu, because it reminded the locals of a cobra-like snake found on the island of Okinawa, Japan. The Blackbird is still the fastest air-breathing, piloted, airplane ever built.
