Revue de presse

"Although the book is only 192 pages — much of them taken up with images, drawings and illustrations — it is filled to the brim with information and revelation. The book is as enjoyable to read as it is to see since the illustrations and background textures of the pages make for a rich experience. Once read, the reader will have not only an acute awareness of flying an SR-71 but an overview of the organization as well as logistics which were required to keep the SR-71 flying." - Travel for Aircraft (Seattle Post Intelligencer Blog)


"SR-71: The Complete Illustrated History of the Blackbird, The World's Highest, Fastest Plane by Col. Richard H. Graham is absolutely the best presented and most accurately detailed book ever published about the Blackbird family of planes. Rich Graham includes recently declassified information about the CIA and Air Force Blackbird programs to make his book the most informative source on the subject. Being a veteran of the CIA's A-12 Oxcart program, I can vouch to the accuracy of what Colonel Graham published in this great book about a world of aviation so selective and compartmentalized that even participants in the various Blackbird programs will learn from this book. Colonel Graham has published the "go to" book for our nation's reconnaissance programs involving the Blackbird family of planes."  - Thornton D. "TD" Barnes (Former Area 51 Special Projects. Project OXCART)

Présentation de l'éditeur

 

At the height of the Cold War in 1964, President Johnson announced a new aircraft dedicated to strategic reconnaissance. The Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird spy plane flew more than three-and-a-half times the speed of sound, so fast that no other aircraft could catch it. Above 80,000 feet, its pilots had to wear full-pressure flight suits similar to what was used aboard the space shuttle. Developed by the renowned Lockheed Skunk Works, the SR-71 was an awesome aircraft in every respect, and it took the world by storm.
 
The SR-71 was in service with the U.S. Air Force from 1964 to 1998, when it was withdrawn from use, superseded by satellite technology. Twelve of the thirty-two aircraft were destroyed in accidents, but none were ever lost to enemy action.
 
Throughout its thirty-four-year career, the SR-71 was the world’s fastest and highest-flying operational manned aircraft. It set world records for altitude and speed: an absolute altitude record of 85,069 feet on July 28, 1974, and an absolute speed record of 2,193.2 miles per hour on the same day. On September 1, 1974, it set a speed and time record over a recognized course between New York and London (3,508 miles) of 1,435.587 miles per hour and an elapsed time of 1 hour, 54 minutes, 56.4 seconds.
 
SR-71 covers every aspect of the SR-71’s development, manufacture, modification, and active service from the insider’s perspective of one its pilots and is lavishly illustrated with more than 200 photos.

Pour les fans d'aéronautique, bonne synthèse technique et opérationnelle d'un avion inégalé depuis quarante ans et développé dans un délai record. Amazon permet de trouver ce type d'ouvrage introuvable.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent book 27 avril 2013
Par Chuck Hancock - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The author has produced the finest book on an aircraft type that I have ever read. The SR-71 has always been a source of fascination to me. This book is thick with details, and will answer any questions you may have ever had about the Blackbird - plus a whole lot of questions you didn't even know to ask. To the author: nice job, sir!

This is one of my favorite books about aviation, and I have a whole library. Don't miss it. As a former military pilot, I was intrigued by the revelation of its former secrets, written by a former SR-71 pilot who has authored several books about the SR-71. This is his best work.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Best Single Book on The SR-71 and it's Mission, from Beginning to End 15 octobre 2013
Par rob olson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I was fortunate to work on the SR-71 Habu for 17 years, in the Air Force. I was on the maintenance team that maintained the aircraft for it's world-wide missions. I knew Col Graham and most of the contributors that Col Graham listed. If you only buy one book on the SR-71 Program, this is the "go-to" book that tells it all in great detail!!
Col Graham was one of my favorite pilots due to his professionalism, his piloting skills and the way he treated us who got dirty (and fuel-soaked) on a daily basis. Of course, most all of the SR-71 crews possessed these traits. They were and are the Best of the Best. And so was the SR-71.
I highly recommend Col Graham's book to those who love all things aircraft!! Or those who just want a detailed glimpse into the great products Kelly Johnson designed and then produced.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The coolest plane ever 21 juin 2013
Par nm - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
The SR-71 is just possibly the coolest plane ever. My dad is one of the few pilots ever to fly it, and one of the very few remaining. He is in assisted living now and I take it over and read it to him and then we talk about things. It is a great tool for unlocking old memories and just having a really good and meaningful time together. It's chock full of facts that will amaze you and the pictures are wonderful as well. Buy it and find an old pilot to sign it for you. What a gift!
