Publisher's Summary

Higher, farther, faster - what every real aviator aspires to. The SR-71 was the epitome of this dream for three decades. The only way to beat the SR-71 was to rocket into space, and every astronaut in the office with me in the 1960s would have loved to have flown the Blackbird. In many ways it placed greater demand on piloting proficiency than any spacecraft. Terry's book answers all those questions you ever had about the wonderful challenge of controlling an airplane, flying at 80,000 feet and more than three times the speed of sound for hours at a time.

Great in sight on life and times of Blackbird crew

Great story. Good anecdotes with real depth. A bit repetitive at times, but this is more a function of similar questions being asked and answered. Well worth the time investment esp. Pappas allows the casual observer to step into an active duty squadron, and strap into Habu, for a wild ride into aviation history.

More please!!!

Great book, great highlights. I'd love to hear Terry's whole story. Please write a book that takes us into his life, his experiences, his victories behind the stick.
I suspect there are some amazing stories out there that the sr71 team needs to cough up before we start to lose that amazing time in the usaf history. These guy are the real RIGHT STUFF. I look forward to more... Please. :-)
