Put your pressure suit on and strap yourself in for a Mach 3 ride! Former SR-71 Wing Commander Rich Graham tells the amazing inside story of the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird. Graham provides a detailed look at the entire SR-71 story beginning with his application to be an SR pilot through commanding an entire wing.

Synopsis:

This book is packed with first-hand stories from the author and his fellow crewmembers as they tell not only about their incredible missions selected and trained, how the aircraft operates, how the program was run, and the details of their everyday lives.
