Some SR-71 pics I took at an air show at Beale AFB in the late 1980s. The SR-71 and the U2 operated out of there. You pretty much had to know someone that worked at the base to see the show, and my business partner's FIL worked at the base. I talked to the SR-71 pilot, he told me when they took off, they were going to fly a short mission, then do a Mach 3 flyover at 80,000 ft and release a fuel trail so you could see them. We were in N. CA, and he told me they'd be over AZ before they slowed down enough to turn around for the landing. Interesting guy.
