SR-71 Blackbird Buzzes the Tower-FB

Afterburner: a blackbird’s thunderous visit

Below is one of those smiles for miles aviation stories. Even though the link below is a video, you’re going to need speakers or headphones to take in the fun-tastic story. Also, make sure you stick around until the very end, because it keeps getting better. Please give it a listen and let us know what you think!

Because we always get asked, “Can you get the SR-71 Blackbird at the Airshow?”

We’d love to have an SR-71 at the Wings Over Houston Airshow. Unfortunately, all the SR-71’s and A-12’s have been retired form service and relegated to museums. If you get a chance, getting up close to a SR-71 Blackbird is one those aviation bucket list items.

So press play for a smile, and don’t forget, there will be plenty of AFTERBURNER at this year’s Airshow, October 14th and 15th!
