SR-71 Blackbird ‘Speed Check’

This is Major Brian Shul, USAF (Ret.). I gotta thank him for this story. It makes me recall my own dad, who also had lots of fun flying what was, in his day, back in the day, by far the fastest plane on earth. Hah. Lol. I love it. I bet he did this exact same thing, not on the West coast, but rather on the Eastern Seaboard teaching the guys to fly there. We’re getting closer to getting dad’s citations for his DFCs. Colonel “J” just had me sign some “standing” papers. :-)
