Book News Annotation:

Landis, an aviation photographer affiliated with NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center, presents a color photo history of the Lockheed Blackbird family of military airplanes, from 1964 through the final flight in 1999. The book collects about 100 color photos, including rare images that have never been published before and images recently declassified by the CIA, as well as design drawings and plans, illustrating the design, manufacture, and flight of the planes. Photos are accompanied by detailed captions. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Still the world's most popular and most exciting aircraft, the Lockheed family of A-12, YF-12, D-21/M-21, and SR-71 Blackbirds are to this day the highest-performance jet-powered airplanes ever flown. They have set numerous world speed and altitude records for manned aircraft powered by air-breathing engines that theoretically may never be broken. Although no longer operational, A-12s and SR-71s flew for nearly three decades at speeds in excess of Mach 3 and altitudes of up to 90,000 feet. Expanding on the successful sales of all Specialty Press Blackbird publications is this natural extension of our product line created by compiling many never-before-published photos coupled with new de-classified information recently released by the CIA, including black-and-white and color photos of A-12 cockpits, early camera installations, and never-before-seen special camouflage schemes.
