    Great post Leland! I'm living near Beale now and a buddy of mine flew one of the refueling tankers. I'll share it with him.

    ps. there are still steelhead in the NoCal streams...

    Sure, you got your Harriers, your Nighthawks, your Raptors...but without a doubt, the coolest, most bad-ass thing that ever flew is the Blackbird. Great article, thanks for sharing, Leland!

    I remember reading an article a few years ago that claimed that seismologists in California were still detecting the occasional signature sonic booms of the SR-71 several years after it had been decommissioned. X-Files much?

    Makes you wonder. If they could do this in the 60's, what's happening now? And, by the way, where were the computers then? Slide rules you say?!!!

    That'd be the 59. I liked the 57 (Driving Miss Daisy car) but the fins grew and the 59 is just fugly. Collectors love them, tho.
