The Lockheed SR-71 aircraft, also known to many as the ‘Blackbird’, was an advanced Mach 3+ strategic and long-range reconnaissance aircraft. Clarence “Kelly” Johnson was the man responsible for the innovative design and concept of this impressive airplane. When it was used for reconnaissance missions, the pilots were able to operate the SR-71 not only at high speeds, but also at high altitudes, enabling them to outrace threats and dangers. The Blackbird enjoyed more than 30 years in the service, having been used from 1964 up to 1998.
