Blackbird: Ultimate Boy's Toy

71, originally uploaded by Neorelix.

A great perk of being a tourguide the other week meant a trip to the Imperial War Museum at Duxford (actually, I sometimes go here on my own or force Godkids to come along - I love the place) to show my mate the wealth of wartime planes they have exhibited here and especially the American Air Museum. This, the SR-71 Blackbird, is my favourite; probably of many other kids too... Flying at 85,000 ft in excess of Mach 3.3?!? I feel the need....
