Its been my great honor to be able to see, actually touch and photograph 2 SR-71 Blackbirds
Both historic in their own way, the top one at Pima Air & Space is the last Lockheed built SR-71

the Castle Air Museum, if I recall correctly, the Blackbird that flew the most combat missions, supposedly over North Viet Nam, North Korea, Soviet Union, mainland China and most of the Eastern Block Warsaw Pact
One other point: no Blackbird has ever been lost in combat


Pima Air & Space, Arizona

Yes guys that is a fantastic Martin Mariner Seaplane right under the Pima Air 71. Also next to it is the Blackbird drone
I have a 155 photo album of my day at Pima, including the Boneyard tour. Over 18 acres, 350 planes, w exceptional civilian planes, up to a 787 Dreamliner.



SR 71, Castle Air Museum
by /photos/purple-bullet/Coast

The Pima Air & Space is said to be one of the best privately funded, NGO (non governmental organization) aircraft museums in the world.

Castle Air Museum ,also an NGO, is on a former Strategic Air Command Air Force Base and has most every American combat plane you can wish to see, including only 1 of 4 remaining B-36's, even other countries like a British Avro Vulcan

thanks for viewing________Coast

Those are two great collections Coast! You must have had a good time there. The planes contrast well against the blue skye. An outdoor museum wouldn't work well here with our weather conditions. It looks like you could use something wider than 16mm with some of those big ones though . TFS.

Thanks Fred, your Right, these places for me are like a kid in Disneyland. Usually I don't leave till they close the place and I have to go
I have 3 albums of ea museum one w the Zeiss and another go around w the ultra wide and I get very different perspectives of the planes. One of the Castle albums I went back for their "Open Cockpit Days" and have photos of large crowds and insides of some of these awesome planes
