Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird Manual : An Insight into the Design, Operation and Maintenance of the Secret US Cold War Reconnaissance Aircraft 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.
